Its so easy to overlook our own strengths, especially if they are associated with our everyday lives or natural character traits. This pack of What’s your strength? ® has been designed to help adults recognise the transferable skills they’ve developed throughout their life experiences.
The cards can be used as a self-help tool or as a resource for careers professionals supporting adults through mentoring, coaching, and training.
The pack includes a wide range of life experiences to select from and when the cards are turned over a list of skills and qualities are revealed. This encourages positive self-refection and helps to unlock potential.
Being able to identify and talk about strengths helps us to:
- understand ourselves better
- embrace who we are
- improve confidence, self-esteem, and motivation
- develop career planning skills:
- researching jobs we are well suited to
- CV writing
- applying for jobs and training
- preparing for interviews
A glossary of all the words used on the cards can be downloaded here.
What’s your strength? ® was designed in line with Dyslexia Scotland’s Dyslexia Friendly Communications guidance as far as design constraints allowed.
