strengths cards to help you discover & appreciate strengths
What are 3 of your strengths? What is a good team building activity? The ‘Stronger You’ coaching cards can help you answer these questions! These strengths cards are the perfect tools to begin your strengths-based approach in personal development or team leadership.
What makes these strengths cards unique?
The ‘Stronger You’ coaching cards are 52 strengths cards made from high-quality and durable materials. Each card has the strength term in capital letters, an icon visualizing it, and an inspiring image on the back. The images can be used when working with associations and intuition. Optional cards have a plus sign on them – you can remove these add-on cards if you want to work with a smaller selection. The strengths terms in this card set are grouped into 3 important areas of a person’s life: Character, Relationships, and Competency. This card set is inspired by Christopher Peterson and Martin Seligman’s popular work Character Strengths and Virtues.
Why use a strengths-based approach?
Rather than focusing on deficits, a strengths-based approach focuses on what the individual can achieve. This approach emphasizes that people are capable and that learning and development are possible for everyone. With a focus on strengths, we build on what makes us uniquely strong.
What are these strengths cards good for
Appreciation in the team
Spread all the cards on a table with the strengths side facing up. Gather the team around it, so that everyone can see the variety of cards.
Ask the question: What strengths do you see in your teammates?
Everyone selects one card for each team member and places it in front of that person.
Reflect how each team member is seen by the others. How does this show in everyday life?
End the exercise by asking: What did you find curious or interesting?
Variation: Use the picture side up to bring to surface what people don’t acknowledge consciously. Each team member reflects individually on the meaning of the pictures given to them. Close with a sharing round.
Journey to self-discovery
With the cards spread out in front of you, strengths side facing up, pick four strengths that you can see in yourself. While you are looking at the cards, ask yourself:
Why does this strength resonate with me?
When I use this strength, does it fulfill me?
Does it describe me well?
After looking at both sides of the strength cards in front of you, provide a concrete example explaining why this strength describes you. Then explain how you will continue to practice this strength in your everyday life.
My future and me
Looking at the cards with the picture side facing up, ask yourself “Who do I want to be?” Pick the four strength cards that resonate the most with you and look at their back sides. Go through the following questions in this order for each card:
What about this card made you choose it? Name the strength related.
How well does this strength represent who you are right now?
What can you do to further nurture this strength?
Variation: Set a focus by e.g., just using only the cards of the ‘Relationships’ category.
