This is one of those rare training workshops where participants were totally attentive and engaged from the start to the end. The management is confident that the Strengths-based approach is most appropriate to bring about a positive staff climate and higher level of performance in our school.
Leonard Koh | Principal | Northland Secondary School
Jason's workshop was engaging and thought provoking as participants role play individuals with different talents under various situations. Getting participants to draw their interpretation of their talents was also an interesting way of clarifying perception in a fun way, both for themselves & their team members. StrengthsFinder has been helpful in creating awareness of our natural tendency (talent) so that we can consciously grow and leverage on it to be uniquely us yet effective. I especially like the idea of using strengths innovation to manage our areas for improvement. In a way, it points us to the keys that can on our engines, i.e. motivation, to fulfil our life mission in education.

I wished I have done this workshop in my earlier days as a leader. It would have consciously helped me in focusing on the strengths of my team, rather than areas of improvements. The StrengthsFinder workshop provides an innovative and refreshing approach to people development and growth. There was ample time given for discussion and engagement. Well done! A day well spent!

RSV Marreeran | Secondary 3 Normal Academic Student | Marsiling Secondary School
The StrengthsFinder workshop helped me to realize the strengths I never knew I had! I now learn to harness my strengths instead of focusing on improving my weakness! The workshop also showed me that I should not use my strengths to focus on the negative aspect of things! It also helped me to understand people around me because of the strengths they have which helped me to be more patient and also helped me to appreciate how different people operate!
Leow Ee Whye | St Andrews Secondary School
“Before I came for this StrengthsFinder workshop, I did not know the best studying techniques. Now that I know my strengths and the way I should study, I feel that this workshop is really effective in educating especially students who are lost in academics, about the right studying methods.”
Lim Ding Kai | J1 Student | Catholic Junior College
StrengthsFinder not only helped me understand the way I may be inclined to think and function, but taught me how I can best use my strengths to complement others. Through the training, I've learnt what my strengths are about and how to better develop them. I now can "play by my strengths" rather than focus on my weaknesses.
David Tan | Ngee Ann Polytechnic | Animation & 3D Arts
Through the StrengthsFinder workshop, I was able to better understand how I am wired and how I work. By discovering my strengths, I am able to place greater emphasis on my talents, work together with my diversified executive committee, leading the prefectorial board and this school, united in differences.
Andre Shum Kai Heng | Head Prefect | Anglo-Chinese School Barker
Through the StrengthsFinder workshop, I am able to use these strengths to enhance my leadership and make a difference in the student body.
Shemael Matthews | Head Monitor | Anglo-Chinese School Barker
The Strengthsfinder training has equipped me to use my strengths more effectively through understanding them. Initially, I was skeptical of the benefits of knowing my strengths through completing the test. However, after the training, I was able to clarify misunderstandings of several strengths and realize the positive result of nurturing my own strengths. That helped me to change my outlook towards them! In addition, the interactive discussion has allowed me to appreciate people for who they are and instilled an interest to discover people’s strengths more than their flaws.
Malcolm Shum | Anglo Chinese Junior College
The Strengthsfinder workshop has greatly helped me to better understand myself. I was able to understand the reasons why I behaved or reacted a certain way, and I gained valuable insight on how to properly nurture my strengths in order to move from the "infancy" stage to the "maturity" stage. I particularly enjoyed the engaging group activities. Those activities allowed us to understand each other better, as well as to see how the different strengths could work together to achieve a common goal. Through the workshop I have gained a greater appreciation of myself and my peer's strengths, as well as how to use my strengths to harness my potential.
Gracia Leong | Anglo-Chinese School (Independent)
Victor from Strengths School makes strengths easy to understand by introducing activities and games that helps me identify the different StrengthsFinder strengths my teammates and I had. He was able to break down tough concepts into meaningful bite-size nuggets of wisdom. I now value my teammates more and learnt how to harness each person's strengths for the benefit of the team. The StrengthsFinder workshop was an extremely positive experience!
Samuel Lee, NUS Year 4 Student
From the workshop, when I saw the different strengths of everybody, I suddenly realized why each person behaves in certain ways! My greatest personal takeaway was learning that each StrengthsFinder talent I have needs to grow from 'infancy' to 'maturity' if it is to be used effectively and for good. The training helped me figure out what questions I should be asking myself & what steps to take in order to better steward my talents.
Hannah Lois Ng | NUS Student | English Language
I found StrengthsFinder very useful in helping me understand myself better. I realized that discovering my strengths gave me more confidence and assurance on who I am. After the workshop, I felt more encouraged and empowered to consciously work on my strengths in order to achieve my goals, rather than trying to improve on what I was weak at. Seeing that the people around me have different strengths and talents have helped me to appreciate them more for who they are and to see them in a different light. It's nice to know that everyone's strengths are useful in one way or another. After doing the Strengths Finder, I was so excited that I even got my friends and family to do it!
Chermaine Kumar | NUS Student | Social Work
From the StrengthsFinder workshop, I learnt to use my strengths on top of knowing what they are. One thing I thought was really helpful that the program taught us was the level of mastery we can have for our strengths - Strength used at the level of infancy for selfish ambitions as compared to being used at a level of maturity for the benefit of both self and others. This was not clear to me till I had the revelation from the workshop.
Yuzhou Yang| NTU Student | Bioscience
The workshop has been extremely useful as I have learnt practical ways in which my StrengthsFinder strengths can be utilized. I have personally developed an understanding that strengths that are commonly misunderstood can be beneficial if it is harnessed for the right purpose. I am now better able to understand what kind of approaches I might adopt when dealing with people whose strengths are very different from mine.
