Strength based workshop to working in communities

A Strength Based Approach to Working With Communities

The session will be delivered as informal workshops to help participants understand;

  • The strength based/ asset based approach, what it is and why is it important
  • How to be ready to take a strength based approach; developing the language and abundance mindset
  • What happens when you take a strength based approach
  • Go beyond the comfort zone, have a strength based conversation and test out some strength based tools
  • Identify how you can adopt a strength based approach to working in community


Using fun, informal concepts and key coaching techniques, the group will be encouraged to participate and explore the approach for themselves and with each other. The content of the session will include evidence of this approach in action and communication tools that support the approach. The session will be delivered by Julia Wolfendale, an accredited coach and mentor who has led and developed the asset based approach within the programme of Behaviour Change at Manchester City Council. This inspired a new way for the workforce developing better relationships with community and supporting, prevention, social connectedness, economic independence and wellbeing.
