Strengths-Based Mindset

March 30, 2021

The strengths-based mindset originates from a core belief that every human has something unique and irreplaceable to contribute to our world. 

It starts from a profound respect for life and diversity.

It starts from a stance of openness and curiosity and unrelenting faith that we are all connected to each other and we are each worth listening to.

It starts by welcoming all people with the knowledge that each plays a unique and important role in the larger whole.

It rejects the idea that there is only one good way to learn.

It believes that people who learn and live in ways that challenge the system are there to help the system grow.

It craves differences because they promote evolution.

When presented with a human who challenges the system, the strengths-based mindset leans back in the director’s chair, with a soft and inquisitive smile, tilts her head to the side, and says, “This one will teach us a lot.”

We’ve all got a lot to learn from each other.
