At the workshop each participant received their strengths and virtues on beautiful, customised cards. I hope the cards have been shared with friends, family and colleagues and are now being referred to as a guidance for decisions and actions.
Personally, knowing my top five strengths has given me a great deal of clarity and allows me to be more deliberate, authentic and consistent.
Emily shared the flipside with a handout “Your strength is your weakness”. This is an excellent way to understand our characters even more.
For example, many of us had “Honesty” as the leading strength – this is a wonderful virtue. However, if not understood it can also get us into trouble. The downside of Honesty is that sometimes being honest can come across as insensitive.
Do you (or should you) tell the whole truth? We are not suggesting you lie, but perhaps some information can be more harmful than helpful.

Your strength is your weakness
As promised, Emily has provided a copy of her Bibliography. This is a long list of links, articles, research and journals which the BNY team have built over the years.
In most cases, you can copy and paste into Google and you will find the material, it’s not your usual set of books, podcasts and videos and if you have the time you will learn more about the BNY way of thinking.
Everything BNY does is research based, their teachings draw on age old acting techniques, marketing expertise and world class psychological studies to help you build a stronger external focus to become more engaging and adaptive to different situations.

I love every minute of absorbing the BNY8 content, each morning I sit down with a cup of tea and read. The learnings and techniques are so much richer than I am used to, I have many years of branding and marketing experience, but this is deeper and research based.
My leading strength is Zest – so I am always approaching things with everything I have.
So, in addition to the BNY list I have included a few of my own favourite books and podcasts to share with you.
