The role of Education surely is to teach our young people how to live a meaningful and purposeful life. For years however, our school systems have tried to fix up an individual’s weaknesses in an effort to make them a solid all-rounder. We call this ‘Deficit Based Remediation’ programming.
While this has been an admirable strategy, over 50 years of study and research by Dr. Donald Clifton, affectionately dubbed the Father of Psychology, studied what would happen when we develop and focus on an individual’s natural strengths.
THE RESULTS WERE ALARMING!
Focusing on strengths gives a 36.4% increase in performance
Focusing on weaknessess gives a -26.8% decrease in performance
STRENGTH-BASED EDUCATION involves educators discovering their own talents first and developing and applying their strengths as they help students do the same in learning and completing academic tasks, to optimal levels of personal excellence.
