Welcome to the world of leadership strengths!

This 90-minute leadership programme is designed exclusively for university students and young professionals.

Why start your strengths development journey?

  • You’re not sure what career path to take.
  • You’re confused about what makes you unique.
  • You struggle with being labelled ‘inexperienced’ (even if you have completed a gap year or a year abroad) making it challenging to secure your dream job.
  • You lack confidence.
  • You want to build a personal brand.

You’re ready to take control now and invest in a 90-minute strengths-based conversation.


What are the objectives of the programme? 

  • To understand what your ‘7 significant strengths’ are and how you can leverage them for your interviews or probation period.

  • To help you identify what makes you truly unique, enabling honest and authentic conversations. 

  • To empower you to develop and elevate your strengths, as well as productively overcome blockers to your performance. 
  • To make you more confident, engaged with work, productive and able to build better relationships with your colleagues and your teams. 
  • To catalyse high-impact conversations for exceptional performance and to drive up engagement, commitment and performance. Employee performance can increase by as much as 36% when performance conversations focus on strengths, contrasted with a fall of 27% when the same conversation is focused on weaknesses. 

How we will work together


Prior to our first session, you will receive an email link to complete an online Strengthscope™ assessment. Note that it is the only strengths assessment available in the world today with British Psychological Society-registered test status, shown to measure without bias in regard to gender, age and ethnic origin.

Once you have completed the assessment, you will receive your report prior to our first session together. The report focuses on which strengths give you energy and which drain your energy, allowing us to identify and improve the use of your strengths.

Our work together will be a recorded 90-minute debriefing session on zoom, focusing on your strengths profile. The session includes a personalised summary with guidance so that your early career journey can be successful. 

You can choose to work either with me or with my co-director, Professor Phil Powrie, who as a former university Pro Vice Chancellor, Executive Dean, and programme leader for the Liberal Arts and Sciences, as well as placement coordinator at the University of Surrey, is well-placed to support you.
