Free online: Understanding your Child's Talents & Strengths
Time & Location
About the Event
We'd like to talk to why its more important to focus on improving our children's (and ours) strengths, than trying to overcome their weakness, whilst at the same time understanding their 'non' Strengths."What would happen if we looked at what was right with our children?" Donald Clifton
This will be a revolution in understanding why we think, feel and behave, the way we do and how all of this is good. Helping parents begin to understand their own children and themselves better, and recognizing that when we use our strengths, we can bring something totally unique to the offering.
Too many children today are battling with issues of self asteem, not feeling valued, self confidence issues and parents do not realise our children's value is innate. Each one of us has been bless with 12-15 Strengths. These enable a child to have a 'language' to describe who they are, both to themselves and others.
What you will gain a general:
- Understanding the 34 Strengths
- Understanding the contributions of our Strengths
- Understanding the needs of our Strengths
- The triggers of dependency, co-dependency and Independence and how our strengths can play a part in creating balance, moving us to the joys of Interdependence
Coaching through Strengths – we all have innate Strengths which can be measured using an online assessment. But what are Strengths? This is a general talk to understand who we are, who we are not, and being comfortable with both. The objective is firstly gaining an understanding of our innate strengths, secondly that our Strengths have needs and why, if we cannot contribute through our Strengths, we can become toxic and are unable to perform at our absolute best. Yet the great news is, we can grow exponentially when we begin to own our strengths and uncover our untapped potential.
This will liberate you as a parent and, once Strength knowledge is applied, has the potential to significantly increase the value and confidence in all children.
