Strengthscope's® mission is to reveal the unique strengths of people across the world, enabling you to bring your most authentic and inspired selves to work and to life, every day. The Strengthscope® self-report is the first essential step on the journey to discovering and embracing your unique strengths and learning how to use them effectively.

Strengthscope® defines strengths as underlying qualities that energize you and that you are great at or have the potential to become great at. Recognized by the British Psychological Society for reliability and validity, Strengthscope® helps you to perform at your best every day and also allows you to reduce performance risks – all by developing what already exists inside of you.

What’s included in the report?

  • Build awareness of your unique strengths and how to optimize these to achieve exceptional results

  • What energizes you most and how to stretch these to perform at your best

  • Which strengths may become counter-productive when not used effectively

  • What energizes you least and which may impact your performance

  • Empowering strategies to help you take action to stretch yourself in areas of strength and reduce the impact of any performance risks

  • Positive, practical ways of working that will improve your confidence, motivation and success in any situation

  • How to strengthen relationships and work more effectively with people whose strengths are different from yours by allowing more honest and authentic conversations across all levels

The wheel shows all of the 24 strengths with scores rated on a standardized scale from 1-10. Scores are compared to a relevant comparison group with higher scores showing areas that energize you the most. It is more important to focus on the overall distribution of your strengths and which clusters they fall in rather than the individuals scores for each strength. Significant 7 strengths are displayed as purple bars, while others are shown as blue bars. Higher bars represent those strengths that are more natural and energizing for you, whilst the lower bars represent non-strength areas or energy drainers that will provide less energy and enjoyment in your work.

Included in the price of your Strengthscope® report is access to StrengthsPortalTM, which includes a range of online courses and resources to allow users to drive their own development.

The short video-based content ensures your team gets the most from the Strengthscope® report. It takes you on a tour of strengths discovery, helping you understand what your strengths are, how to develop them, and how to apply this new awareness to action towards a goal.

Why is Strengthscope® unique from other self-assessments?
