Once you are finished creating your cards, go on to another activity (play a game, do a craft, etc). As you go about another activity during your mentoring time or the next time you meet, be aware of how your strengths are being used. When you notice a strength in yourself or your mentee, hold your card up, explain how the strength is in use, and then make a note on the back of the card.
Keep the cards and use them often when you meet in order to strengths spot each other. This very simple activity will help you and your mentee on your strengths development journey. By creating awareness of our strengths during normal day-to-day life, you are helping each other claim their strengths in a personal and powerful way. Deliberately strengths spotting during your mentoring time, will help set an example and precedent for both of you to strengths spot people in other areas of your life, therefore helping you see others through a positive lens.
