Book Now


The Dependable Strengths Articulation Process (DSAP) is based on the premise that everyone has excellence deep within them. This excellence — in the form of a unique pattern of Dependable Strengths — can be identified and brought to awareness, enabling you to do your best work and experience your greatest satisfaction and fulfillment in life. The DSAP uncovers strengths and unlocks potential.

The DSAP is a unique interactive, peer-assisted, group process proven through research to improve self-esteem, motivation and internal locus of control while uncovering your most Dependable Strengths.

The DSAP enables you to

  • Identify your unique pattern of core strengths, talents, and abilities
  • Become motivated to be your best
  • Take action to express your strengths in work, home and life

The Process

    The DSAP is a planned sequence of 62 activities in an engaging 18-hour process usually conducted over two and a half days. The purpose is to identify your unique pattern of core strengths – Dependable Strengths – then apply this knowledge to finding meaningful work.

    The DSAP includes small group activities, short lecture, discussion, reflection, and experiential elements, including:

    • REMEMBERING…special events in your past called Good Experiences
    • DESCRIBING… these experiences in detail to others and receiving feedback about strengths
    • DETERMINING… your unique pattern of strengths using the Strengths Exploration Chart
    • CONFIRMING… your Dependable Strengths using the Reality Test
