Welcome to BUILD A Flourishing TEAM!
Hi! 🙂 My name is Anni Eline, and I help people and teams to discover and unleash their unique strengths.
My approach is based on research in Positive Psychology and I use science-based tools in my workshops. I also also draw upon my practical experience in HR and career coaching from international environments (I have worked and studied in Finland, the U.S., Germany, and Spain!), my studies in occupational well-being, and my analytical skills perfected by my Master of Science (Econ.) degree.
I love to relax by walking in the woods or by knitting cozily on the couch. My favorite kind of music is country (I know, weird for someone who grew up closer to Santa Claus than honky-tonks), and I plan to rescue a dog with my husband soon!
But now, let’s talk a little bit more about the topic that you came here for: strengths.
If I told you that you can reach better results by developing your strengths rather than your weaknesses, would you believe me? I know, it sounds like a crazy idea because most of us have learned to focus on fixing what we can’t do, rather than becoming excellent at what comes easily and naturally to us. We also tend to help others to develop by fixing their areas of improvement.
And I get it, I have also been there and I do think that sometimes working on our areas of improvement is necessary. However, research suggest that maybe we should shift our focus so that most of our attention goes into developing and using our existing strengths better.
When we focus on what we are good at and what we like doing (=strengths), we are going to enjoy the activity more and we are also more likely to reach better results. It also makes sense timewise: becoming average at something that is not natural to us is way more time-consuming than becoming excellent at something that is easy and fun for us. According to research, focusing on strengths leads to increased well-being AND better performance at work (VIA Institute on Character).
And the beauty of focusing on strengths in teams is that when everyone contributes what they are the very best at, there is no limit to what the team can reach together!
Ready to unleash your team’s superpowers?
My workshops are all about helping your team to identify their unique strengths, and using these strenghs better to reach the organization’s goals. The individual workshops fit nicely into your wellness days, team days, and off-sites. We can also build a strengths program of multiple workshops.
And of course, I draw upon my own strengths in the workshops 🙂 I use my appreciation of beauty and excellence to prepare engaging materials, love to create a warm atmosphere during the workshop, love of learning to keep a curious mind and a growth mindset, and honesty to bring my full, authentic self to the workshop.
