Strengths Use Plan
People who know their strengths and use them frequently tend to have higher self-esteem, better moods, and less stress. Learning to use strengths is something anyone can achieve.
The Strengths Use Plan is a two-page worksheet designed to help people identify the strengths they would like to use more, and make plans for doing so. First, clients will identify the strengths they would like to use more. Then, for each day of the week, they will make a plan for how to use one or more strengths.
If your client needs help getting started, try asking what activities make them feel energized, what their goals are, or what they are doing when they’re at their best. The answers will allude to their strengths.
