Conspire Day 1, Session 3

Discover Each Child's Strengths, by Jennifer Fox

Children need us to teach them to love themselves so they can know how to love others.

Our world needs strengths to be discovered and loved.

It's a matter of perspective.

We're so drawn to weaknesses in kids that we often overlook the strengths.

There's something we are born with and will go back to again and again.

Find talents that are also strengths. The problem is so many people are pushed to develop talents that are not a strength.

3 types of strengths

Peel back layers of specifics to get to the heart of the matter.

Being good at something something isn't a strength. A strength is where we'll make the biggest, most meaningful difference for the longest amount of time.

Customize it to allow kids to work together with their strengths to make a meaningful contribution in life.
