Why Strengths for Education? Why Strengths for Singapore Education?
Gallup StrengthsFinder is the premier profiling tool used by 13 million people worldwide. Strengths-based education emphasizes the intentional use of one’s unique and individualized talents to achieve a sustainable high performance & personal success. It also opens up multiple pathways to success, to appreciate and engage diverse talents. This plenary showcases the experiences and cases of Strengths-based education in USA and different parts of the world.
Maximizing student motivation using strengths
It’s often easy to focus on what students do badly in as compared to what they do well in. Students’ abilities are maximized when they realize what they do well in and are guided to repeat these successes. This plenary explores the idea behind motivating students by helping them own their strengths and increase their self-confidence.

Conflict management starts with identifying common ground, followed by expanding the place of agreement. This session demonstrates the process of leveraging the Gallup StrengthsFinder “language” to bridge differences and resolve misunderstanding.
