Discovering people’s skills and strengths

As a coach, we want to find ways to help people recognise their own strengths and skills. There are different tools to help us with this: 

VIA strengths finder – this is a free online scientific survey which shows peoples’ skills. 

SWOT analysis – this is a few questions to help someone think about their strengths, weaknesses and opportunities. A free worksheet is available from MindTools.

Strength and qualities worksheet – This worksheet helps people to think about compliments they’ve received, times they’ve felt happy, challenges they’ve overcome, and more. This free worksheet is available from MindTools.
