"Styrkekortene støtter de gode historier i organisationen. Det øger arbejdsglæden, at vi taler om vores styrker og anvender dem. Samtidig øger det også fagligheden, når man bruger styrkekortene til at fastholde den ressourceorienterede refleksion. Når man bruger styrkekortene, anerkender man hinanden. Selvom vi er gode kollegaer er det ikke altid man får sagt til sin kollega hvad det er, man præcist værdsætter i samarbejdet. Kortene kan hjælpe dig til at finde din kollegas særlige styrker, så du kan sige det til hende. Anerkendelse er psykologisk ilt". Anne Linder
