End the Year Strong
Last week I hosted a Strengths Challenge called "End the Year
Strong" with the aim of introducing people to their Strengths Profile and
to create a Strengths Action Plan for 2021. I had great fun running it with a
wonderful group of people who were all ready to dig in to some self-discovery
and engaged with much enthusiasm.
If you know the Strengths Profile, you will know that it looks at
four quadrants: Realised Strengths, Learned Behaviours, Weaknesses and
Unrealised Strengths. Although I've been using the Strengths Profile with
clients for quite some time now, I am continually learning new things about how
this self-exploration can impact us differently at different times.
What I learned last week was this:
End the Year Well
December can be a great time to reflect on the year just gone and
make plans for next year. However, this year has taken its toll on many of us
and all we want to do is wrap ourselves up in our comfy Realised Strengths like
a warm and cosy blanket in front of the fire. And, if that sounds appealing,
then let's do it so we can end the year well.
What to do now
Get a pen and paper and make a list of 10 things that you find fun, absorbing, relaxing, enjoyable, energising and comforting and resolve to do at least one of those things every day over the festive break. I resolve to do the same and, to keep me honest, here is my list:
This is being pinned to the fridge.
I'd love to read your list. Please do send it over and let's end the year well together.
