Many of us know how important it is to work with our strengths; however, putting this idea into practice flies in the face of how our brains are wired. Unfortunately, our negativity bias often overrides this and we revert to thinking if we could only improve a weaker area for ourselves and our learners. then how much better things would be. Kathy Magnussen and I co-facilitated this AERO workshop and we explored how to turn that notion around, through a series of interactive activities in which we explored our own strengths and worked in small groups on a case study of how Monica used the strengths-based approach with a learner. If you’d like to dig deeper into these ideas, Kathy and I are looking to offer an online course in the future. If you’d like to learn more, please fill out this short survey about How I Like to Learn
