What Makes Management By Strengths (MBS) Unique?

MBS focuses on positive characteristics.

The MBS profile indicates a person’s most productive communication and decision making style. It recognizes the positive and strong preferences of colleagues in order to work with people in the way to which they will best respond. The MBS program is not a system for stereotyping, but about achieving best results.

MBS is an outward-focused, proactive team building program.

MBS is outward and proactive. Participants learn how to improve relationships with colleagues within a day, which might otherwise take years. MBS goes beyond simple descriptions of basic behavioral styles. Gaining an understanding of our communication style is a useful first step, but most “profiling programs” stop there.

MBS is easy to implement and easy to understand.

The MBS profile is provided in graphic, color coded, and written formats, in order to support different learning styles. Participants’ families can also take the survey at no additional charge, thereby reinforcing workplace learning and skill building. Interactive online MBS tools provide personalized guidance for working with team members.
