"Moving away from our deficits encourage us to celebrate ourselves more - all the parts of us, even those that may be challenging. Noticing how we are engaging and leading with our strengths, recognising our patterns and making visible how we show up with our strengths amplify what we already have and encourage us to deepen our relationship with ourselves."
- Lana Jelenjev, Co-founder Neurodiversity Education Academy
What's STRONG With You?
Our lives are steeped with looking for what is wrong or what is missing rather than acknowledging, celebrating and honoring what is going well and what is already present. This continual focus on problems reinforces a deficit-based perspective that also put our attention on solving problems.
Yet when we use a strengths-based lens we shift our focus on the inherent assets, qualities, untapped resources and capacities in every individual, family, school, organization or community.
"How might we shift our lens and focus on strengths rather than deficits?
"Nothing can dim the light which shines from within."

" Remember that working with your strengths is a journey, not a short vacation. If you can find ways to keep the focus on strengths integrated in your life you are sure to continue making small steps that accrue in an upwards spiral. As you climb each little rock and step, you are sure to end up on some amazing summits in your life. When you do, make sure to take a moment to take in the view and celebrate your achievements!"
- Saskia Wenniger, Strengths & ADHD Life Coach, Co-founder NEA
