Discover your strengths and improve your work life and relationships.
Dependable Strengths is based on the premise that all people have some form of excellence deep within them. This can be identified and brought to awareness, enabling the person to do their best work and experience their greatest satisfaction and effectiveness in life.
Dependable Strengths is a process for identifying this unique excellence within each individual. In a planned sequence of experiences participants identify their core talents, skills and abilities – Dependable Strengths – which unlocks hidden potential and puts them in touch with their “best self.”
Research since 1987 at the Dependable Strengths Project, University of Washington, has shown participants in the DSA process increase their self-esteem, motivation and internal locus of control, among other benefits.
Dependable Strengths was originated by Bernard Haldane in 1945 to help military personnel transition to civilian life. Its overwhelming success caught the attention of the Harvard Business School where it became a significant part of its Manual for Alumni Placement. Today, Dependable Strengths is used successfully with a wide variety of populations in settings and organizations around the world.
