Why does strengths-based working fail to take root in so many organizations?

You know that a strength is defined as a natural talent enhanced by the skills, knowledge and experience to accomplish consistent near-perfect performance.

You also know that identifying and then building upon your strengths is the most sure-fire route to sustained individual success.

And you know that there is significant correlation between strengths-based working and critical customer outcomes.

So why is strengths-based working failing in so many organizations? And, what can we do about it?

That’s where The Strengths Springboard comes in…

“For most people in most organizations, the idea of identifying, developing and living their strengths every day is as out of place as a diver trying to complete a routine without the aid of a springboard and swimming pool. The belief system doesn’t support it. The structural reinforcement isn’t there.”


“The Strengths Springboard – Is Your Organization Ready” eBook presents 5 Core Beliefs an organization must adopt to be ready to meet strengths-based talent where it is.

Making these beliefs come to life takes the work of shifting processes, systems, management and leadership to a complete focus upon alignment of strengths with customer-based outcomes, and then reinforcing that alignment at every step of the human value chain.

The Strengths Springboard fully describes each belief, the underlying sources of organizational resistance, and how to experiment your way into a new way of being.

I wrote The Strengths Springboard for:

  • Leaders who want to radically shift their organization’s capability to better serve their customers

  • Managers looking to check-in with their direct reports rather than checking-up on them

  • HR, Talent & OE professionals looking to grow a strengths-based organization

If that’s you, then you KNOW that the business case for strengths-based working and development is proven.

In fact, you’ve probably been a cheer-leader for the wider use of strengths in your workplace.

Though you may not have not been able to quite put your finger on why you’re not gaining traction.

Well, now you can get the answers you need, and a framework within which to move things forward.

This is The Strengths Springboard… Are you ready to dive in?

“… Strengths-based working and development IS the future of competitive advantage, a future that is LONG overdue… yet, when it comes to strengths-based working, most organizations are forcing people to act, behave and identify themselves pretty much the same way as members of a fringe cult…”


“The Strengths Springboard – Is Your Organization Ready?” is the essential organizational companion for everything related to individual strengths-based work and development. Drawing upon over 2 decades experience of shaping individual, team and organizational performance, Tuckwood provides insights, experiments and options to build the support systems, attitudes and behaviors that can help your people do more of what they do best every day.
