According to Susan Sorenson for Gallup, “People who use their strengths every day are six times more likely to be engaged on the job.” In fact, people who use their strengths for 10 or more hours per day feel like they have more energy left over than people who only use their strengths for three or less hours per day. This makes it critically important for leaders to identify employees’ strengths and cater tasks accordingly. Sorenson has a few tips for how organizations can best align strengths and duties. For instance, do not assume that employees know their strengths, because this is not always the case. Additionally, help employees to set goals according to their strengths, as it creates a win-win situation.
