Are you tired of your self-criticism, or of trying to live up to other people’s standards?

Has your perfectionism left you deflated and demotivated?

Do you not even know where to start in finding new joy in your duties, your job, or even your hobbies?

No worries! Read on and I’ll tell you more about the perfect antidote: the Strengths-Based approach.

Creative, intelligent people with differently wired brains can get quite the amount of pushback from people they interact with. “Why are you doing it like THAT?” , “Just follow protocol” , “We’ve always done things this way” , “You need to fall in line”, “Why are you overcomplicating stuff?”.

If you get a lot of negative messages, or if there is a lot of focus on negative feedback or incrementally improving weak spots in your skill set, over time this can ZAP your motivation. If you want to regain it, here is how:

Strengths Awareness is Key

On top of that, people rarely have good awareness of their own Strengths. This is not surprising. Since evolution programmed our brain to pay 4-6 times more attention to negative feedback from our environment, for the purposes of sheer survival. We tend to take for granted the things that we excel at, the things that give us joy and where we exhibit some kind of natural aptitude.

The problem with this lack of attention to and awareness of Strengths and the abundance of attention to deficits is what this does to our motivation and Growth mindset. Strengths are where our joy and our motivation to push through are activated. Strengths energize us. They light up our brains and activate our capacity for creative, problem-solving, and flexible thinking, whereas focusing on deficits can make us defensive and inflexible.

Strenghts-Based Coaching helped me find my feet again when I was feeling very LOST, and stuck on a career crossroads in my early thirties. Even before I learned about my neurodivergence, this method helped me get unstuck, unmask to some degree, and pushed me to dare to be different and step into my own strange powers.

This is why I LOVE to pay it forward and help other people discover their Strengths and put them into operation in new and surprising ways, or just level up how they have been playing with them already.

Some of the benefits of doing Strengths-Based work

Strengths are connected to the activities and focus areas that come naturally to us. Working with Strengths energizes us. It connects us deeply and daily to what we can be proud of in ourselves and the things we are willing to work on, invest in, learn from and suffer for. And that’s important, because neurodivergent people often have a very sensitive shame trigger that gets activated by negative feedback and deficit-oriented approaches.

Of course, Strengths-Based work is beneficial for EVERYONE, but it has certain added benefits for neurodivergent individuals.

WHY? Because the feeling you get when you are operating from your Strengths is a natural antidote to the abundance of negative feedback neurodivergent people get for not “fitting into the norm”.

Strengths-based activities will pull you into focus, will help you slip into flow while you work, and they will generate dopamine because these are stimulating and motivating activities for you.

Strengths-based planning is the first powerful step in spending your time where you can have the most impact.

Strengths-based energy and time management is a foundational practice for people whose daily energy supplies are regularly drained by Executive Functioning Challenges. We cannot afford to play fast and loose with our time and energy…

Sure, in any job or relationship, there will be leftover chores that are not covered by anybody’s Strengths. But you can still use Strengths to divide those up and make them more attainable or manageable.
