Do you know how awesome you are?
You have a unique strengths fingerprint that helps you bring your special brand of magic to the world.
But if you’re like most people, you’ve probably spent far more time working on your weaknesses than soaring with your strengths.
The Strengths Deck will show you exactly what your unique strengths are and how to use them to create the kind of life and work you’ve been dreaming of.
Working on your weaknesses is a waste of time
The typical approach to personal and professional development is to focus all your attention on fixing your weaknesses, failings, and “not-good-enoughs”.
But when you put all your time and energy into your weaknesses, you take away the opportunity to make the most of what you’re amazing at and love doing – your personal strengths.
It’s far more effective – not to mention enjoyable – to focus on your strengths, and use them to achieve your goals and chase your dreams.
The Strengths Deck is here to help
The guiding philosophy of The Strengths Deck is that you (and those around you) experience significant and sustainable benefits when you invest your time and energy in your true, genius strengths.
The Strengths Deck approach is an interactive, hands-on experience using cards and a matrix to help you get clarity on:
- what lights you up (and what can drain you),
- your areas of effortless performance, and
- how to take smart action to achieve your goals and dreams
Hi, I'm Daria, creator of The Strengths Deck
My strengths story
I spent years working really hard, trying to do things the way others did. And I kept falling short, burning out, and losing hope. All I saw was what wasn’t working and how I was failing. Then I learned how to focus on what is working and what is going right, and the strengths that are in my Zone of Genius.
Once I shifted my focus, life and work got a whole lot easier. Not easy – there are still hard days, because I’m human! But now I know how to spend more time in my Zone of Genius, I’m doing what I’m great at and lights me up. And I want to teach you how to do that for yourself and the people around you.
Love of Learning is a Genius strength for me, so I regularly seek out development and learning opportunities. I’m a Strengths Profile Accredited Practitioner, hold a Diploma in Positive Psychology and Wellbeing, and a Masters of Management in Human Resources Management.

The Strengths Deck coaching
I’d love to show you how to discover your strengths and put them to use to create the kind of life and work you’ve been dreaming of.
You’ll leave our work together with a new-found appreciation for the special magic you bring to the world. You’ll learn simple strategies to make the most of your strengths and spot strengths in others. And you’ll be confident to create new ways of living and working so that you and everyone around you can perform at your best.
To really power-up your strengths journey, I offer 1:1 coaching programmes tailored to your needs and goals.
Each session is unique, focused on what is relevant and useful for you. Because you are the expert in you, I’ll listen to your needs, then work with you to ensure you get what you need to be inspired, take action, and move closer to your goals and dreams.
Group coaching is a fantastic way to build trust and teamwork, as well as achieve your personal development goals.
I work with leadership groups and functional teams to identify their individual and team strengths, weaknesses, and everything in-between. Along the way, we develop strategies to make the most of team members’ strengths, plug the gaps left by weaknesses, and strengthen teamwork by recognising each person’s unique contribution.

I danced around the lounge!
Such a valuable session
I now have so many cool ideas to work with…
It was a hugely illuminating session
I was lucky enough to do a strengths session with the incredible and insightful Daria Williamson.
Through her beautiful new Strengths Deck exercise, she introduced me to the way that we can partner strengths – drawing on something that’s in our ‘zone of genius’ to help us doing something that we’re not so strong in…
I would recommend it to anyone looking to level up in what they’re doing, and find more ease in how they’re doing it. Thanks so much Daria!
I’d love to talk about how you can use your personal strengths to create the life and work of your dreams.

Sources of inspiration
The Strengths Deck Cards and Matrix draw from research and information published by leading authorities on personal strengths. These include Strengths Profile, Gallup/CliftonStrengths, and the VIA Institute on Character Strengths. Inspiration for the card-deck approach came from the Emotional Culture Deck (ECD), created by Jeremy Dean of riders & elephants*.
The ECD offers an infinite variety of fun and interactive ways to talk about emotions at work and home.
