Access Strengths to Unleash Full Potential in the Workplace
Whenever you are in a position of leadership you are faced with the unique task of extracting the most productive performance from your followers. You are thrust into being a role model that is expected to motivate and guide others to achieve their full potential. You must convince your followers to subordinate their own personal goals and buy into the team concept. Typically, you are confronted with constant pressure to maintain a dynamic environment and to create new opportunities for the future. Furthermore, you must learn how to sensitize yourself to the needs and concerns of each of your followers because your success is dependent on their success. The question of course becomes how can this best be achieved?
When you draw on positive psychological states such as confidence, optimism, hope and resilience, it enables you to assume a positive moral perspective where you can lead by example with your words, deeds and high moral standards. An environment can be created where open and deep connections are established, so that followers integrate the group mission into their self concept and begin to view the team as a vehicle for achieving heights beyond anything they were capable of as individuals. It facilitates the development of a perspective where you believe that there is a reserve of human potential, which once accessed, will enable the people around you to achieve greater heights. Ultimately, it provides an opportunity to learn how to capitalize on critical moments that present themselves, so that your team is constantly invigorated by the possibility of conquering new terrain and can take productivity to the next level.
You can learn to:
- Evolve into a confident and optimistic role model who can establish a positive work culture and inspire others to reach new heights.
- Learn to assume a positive stance that allows your followers to feel valued and empowered.
- Sharpen your ability to capitalize on critical moments and create opportunities for the future.
- Build team cohesion so that members become fully committed to the group mission.
