Managers often are looking for that magic bullet when it comes to engaging millennials, and it may just be that it can be found in having a meaningful conversation about an employee’s strengths, shows a new study.
Specifically, a VIA Institute on Character study finds that:
- 71% of employees are more likely to feel engaged and energized by
their work if they believe their managers can name their strengths
- 64% of employees report they believe they will be more successful at
work by building on their strengths rather than fixing their weaknesses
- 69% of millennials who use their strengths regularly describe themselves as “flourishing” at work.
