 Raise your self-awareness about what energises you and what you enjoy at work!

What are your personal Strengths?


Individuals are energised by being able to identify and utilise their greatest strengths.

This picture card exercise has been designed to enable individuals to easily identify the core strengths that energise you at work. This fun and engaging activity expects that through reflecting on the 30 picture cards and the explanations provided on the reverse, individuals will have a greater awareness in recognising and appreciating the attributes that drive their top strengths.

Using these cards with teams or individuals introduces new ideas, stimulates discussion, encourages creative thinking and moves the conversation in new and unexpected directions. Through building a greater awareness of what energises them at work in a fun and engaging way, individuals will be able to develop the focus, confidence, and motivation required to achieve success.

How to identify your Personal Strengths:

Each card illustration is complimented by a detailed definition of that particular strength to the reverse and a detailed explanation of how this may render into the workplace.

Looking at the 30 picture cards, select 10 that you think describe what you are energised by at work.

Next, select 5 that are most like you and take a moment to reflect on these cards. At this point, you may swap any cards and place them in order of preference.

You should now have successfully identified the top 5 Strengths that energise you the most at work.
