Meet the founder of MyStrengths
With a Counselling degree majoring in Positive Psychology, Dan has been an adolescent therapist for over 13 years.
After working with hundreds of teenagers, Dan Hardie saw too many young people who could only describe themselves by negative labels: dumb, nerdy, bossy, too loud, too quiet.
He discovered that genuine and lasting change only occurred when positive self-esteem and confidence was built. That is why he created MyStrengths. To help adolescents understand their strengths and reframe their perceived weaknesses.
Dan and the MyStrengths team want to see a world where every young person genuinely likes themselves.
The MyStrengths framework:
Meet the MyStrengths team
I meet so many young people who have incredible gifts, talents, abilities that should be named and celebrated. The Visionary in me wants to enable every Aussie teen to discover their Top 5 strengths.
Top 5 strengths: Responsibility, Purpose, Fairness, Positivity, Managing
Sure, I love to organise, manage and sort, but it has to make a difference. It’s the Purpose and Managing strengths that come together to make MyStrengths the right place for me.
I find it easy to connect with people. Both Charismatic and Expressive strengths get a workout when I’m talking with teens, training educators or just telling a funny story!
The Structured part of me helps limit the chaos of 3 kids, busy home, a great job and lots of passions and interests. I plan, organise and make it work.
I don’t need to be up front or running the show. I’d much rather sit with someone and hear their story, cheer them on and help one-on-one.
My Fairness strength has always driven my life and work. It’s the people who rarely get a fair go that I want to champion and help. No one should miss out.
Top 5 strengths: Positivity, Understanding, Fairness, Hard Working, Strategic
I’m studying Psychology because I love being part of the solution. That’s probably why I also enjoy resolving business problems for schools, parents, enquiries and more!
I love that we get to help teenagers shift their brain from what’s wrong to what’s right. I need to do things that are Purposeful – we only get one life!
Top 5 strengths: Charismatic, Solution Finder, Excelling, Understanding, Recognition
My fun and energetic nature might make me seem like an easy-going guy but am actually a highly driven person, exercising my Excelling & Recognition strengths to strive in life.
