What's Your Superpower?




I was sat at work doing a job I’d been forced to take


They said if I didn’t take my bosses job then I may lose mine as they had to make one of us redundant


So I took the job!


Obviously


As I was in the midst of relationship hell outside of work my confidence was at an all time low



So I didn’t even ask for a pay rise!


This job was 80% more work

I now managed 16 staff instead of 2 and some parts of the job I hated.....


It had accounting........urgh I hated maths

It had budgeting....dull

It had audit.....people checking people

It had risk......listing things that could go wrong


All of those things I hated!


Me and small details don’t mix, this is a weakness of mine


Are you the same?


So I was stuck in a job that just wasn’t for me

I went into work every day and thought and felt that I wasn't good at any part of my job anymore


Have you ever had this?


But I knew because my life was in tatters outside of work I HAD to make this work as best as I could


So my plan was to focus on the parts of the job I loved

Which was people and my team


My team were amazing!


I was super lucky to have them


Rather than them focus on what they weren't good at, I got them to find out what their strengths were


I then put these on our teams wall and we got really good at knowing what we were good at (and what we weren't)


I moved some peoples jobs around based on what their strengths were


And you know what happened?


We became a force to be reckoned with.....!


WE were the team everyone looked up to


WE were the team that was focused, efficient and always got the work done


WE were the ones who pulled together when we were struggling as individuals


That team alone got me though one of the darkest times in my life outside of work.


Knowing what I was good at helped me focus on what I was good at rather than what I wasn't


Knowing my strengths helped me become unstuck

How?


I used my superpowers!


I used my strengths every single day and my team did the same


What are you good at?


If I asked you what you weren't good at could you answer that??


We're brought up in life and work to focus on what we're NOT good at


Well my mission is to change that


Positive Psychology helps us to Flourish


One of the ways to Flourish is to use our strengths


So this is what I do


I saw my team flourish back then


I saw myself flourish


And you can do the same!


Every client I start working with completes a strength analysis


This gives them their strengths in order of what they're the best at

You should build them into your daily life and work


And if you don't?


This might be why you're feeling unsettled or unfulfilled in life
