Start your journey to organisational culture change with our strengths assessment tools.
Start with the individual employee, then add in 360 feedback with the world first 360 degree strengths assessment.
Next, build on initial strengths discovery and embed across the organisation with our leading reports spanning teams, groups and leaders.
Do you know the areas in which your employees excel? Are you engaging their skills to help them achieve their highest potential? Each member of your team is different, with a varied and unique range of talents.
Two members of your team may even have a very similar set of strengths but they may naturally use them in very different ways.
The Strengthscope® program is a strengths-based assessment tool that seeks to identify the core capabilities of employees and ensure each individual is utilising them in the correct manner and/or in the correct role, to develop both their personal performance levels and the collective output of the organisation.
What Strengthscope Users Say
Strengthscope is a world leading strengths assessment system. Strengthscope helps
individuals, teams and organisations build greater awareness of their strengths and how
these can be used to optimise performance and engagement in the workplace.
Good question and one that's asked a lot.
Strengthscope is all about the strengths of teams and team members. It asks a lot of questions and puts forward some very compelling arguments as to why, when and how we use our strengths at work.
"Oh please, not another personality test." You're saying it aren't you? Well actually, it's not. Strengthscope is different to personality tests because it identifies the things that strengthen and energise us. It doesn't go all alphabetical on you and label you with initials.If the people who've worked with the Strengthscope system of identification had to describe the takeouts here's what they'd say:
Based on years of professional research and scientific modelling, Strengthscope has become a vital assessment tool for organisations that really get it when it comes to developing their teams that ultimately drive their performance.
Strengthscope has a wide variety of applications. Some of these are listed below:
The main advantages of Strengthscope over other assessment tools measuring aspects of character, personal strengths and personality include:
Strengthscope can be purchased by contacting Talent Tools.
Once payment is received, individual IDs or a project ID will be allocated to you.
You then invite participants to complete the questionnaire at www.strengthscope.com.
The questionnaire will take around 35 minutes of your time to complete and should be completed in an environment with as few interruptions and distractions as possible.
We will monitor completion rates and remain on hand for any support required.
You can decide whether feedback reports should be sent to you or direct to participants, along with a debrief preparation questionnaire and an FAQs document to answer any immediate queries they may have.
You then arrange separately for participants' feedback sessions.
Our Accreditation Workshops enable you to process profiles and deliver feedback to employees/clients direct fromyour own Online Strengthscope Account.
This is not only cost-effective, it also embeds and 'internalises' the strengths-focused approach into the organisation. The accreditation also provides access to a growing range of additional support tools and guides.

The Strengthscope model was constructed over an 18 month period, through exhaustive research into strengths, personality, preference, values, ability and positive psychology. From an initial pool of over 40 strengths, a final 22 were chosen for their reliability and validity as occupationally-relevant strengths. The final 22 were sub-divided into four 'clusters' of strength: Emotional, Relational, Thinking and Execution. Each Strengthscope strength is briefly defined in the table below:

"The combination of coaching focused on building strengths has produced the most significant improvements that I have seen from a candidate on a management development programme".
Frank Wilson, Director of Individual Sales, RAC
"At Aviva, our approach to talent management is all inclusive. We believe that each and every one of our employees has talent and that development plans should be tailored to individual needs. Strengthscope is proving to be an extremely effective way of enabling our future leaders to understand where their skills really lie and how to capitalise upon them".
Aviva's Director of Group Management Development
"It is an excellent developmental tool - it starts with the positives of 'now' and can then be used to focus on future development, using present strengths to help this development. It has also allowed employees to look outside their present role and consider future roles in relation to their strength profile. Everyone left the sessions feeling very positive about themselves and their ability to develop further. They have also openly stated how useful it has been."
Mike Yellow, Learning and Development Manager, Thermo Fisher Scientific
"Although I am very familiar with my strengths, I had not previously considered them in terms of those that really drive and inspire me. I discovered a new and very important perspective on which of my strengths I need to use to maximise my energy and motivation."
"In all cases, it has 'lifted' and motivated the individual, focused on what energises them, has given them an insight to potential routes for Personal Development Planning and in two cases, the client would like to explore the use of Strengthscope further within their own teams."
"Very positive, very well received indeed I have used as part of a confidence building away day for staff to reflect upon how they can use their strengths to overcome some of their development areas and how they can use them to fulfil the forthcoming business objectives within their organisation"
"The accreditation day was exceptional in giving practical experience of feeding back and receiving feedback on Strengthscope as well as learning more about the strengths-focused approach. The training gives a much deeper understanding of the tool and the best techniques for a positive and purposeful exploration of strengths."
"Very positive and useful day"
"Very engaging; depth of knowledge; responded to group; thought provoking"
