The Leadership Vision Resource Library
Today on the podcast, Brian Schubring and I are talking about why we spend so much time focused on teams. We unpack five things that are incredibly important to team health. It’s our why; why we do this work. When we work with groups, we help them move through normal dynamics and functions that every team experiences. We also want teams to put into practice some lessons that we’ve learned on how teams function well together.
There’s something here that you might be able to take back to your team right away and try to implement.
Welcome to the next installment of the Leadership Vision Podcast where we share our expertise in the discovery, practice, and implementation of CliftonStrengths.
On this episode of the podcast, I talk about parenting and Strengths with Logan Joyce, one of our consultants and Director of Business Development. This episode is about how we have seen our Strengths show up, change, and display themselves since we’ve become parents. There are more significant lessons here, too, that we apply to individuals and teams that in many ways have nothing to do with kids. Logan and I discuss how the concepts of empathy, patience, and curiosity – the trifecta of necessary parenting skills – are often missing in the workplace. We also ideate a bit about what it might be like if we brought those things back.
Listen now as Logan and I share some of the lessons we’ve learned, and continue to learn, about how our wonderful children have shaped our Strengths.
It’s Thanksgiving week in the United States, and so we’re taking a little break from talking about the implementation and practice of Strengths. Instead, I’ve asked our team to briefly reflect on their year and share a few things they are grateful for in 2018. They each wrote something and then recorded it on whatever recording device they could find. Reflection is a powerful process that reminds us of the good things and teaches us something about the bad. Best selling author Melody Beattie says that “Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
On this episode of the podcast, we share a snapshot of what our team is grateful for in 2018. As we pause to reflect on our hectic and hurried lives, you’ll hear some of the complexity and diversity that exists on our team. We also share our written thoughts in the blog.
On this episode of the podcast, you’ll hear a conversation between Sara and Nathan as they travel to and from a client engagement. In the first part of the show, Sara and I talk about our work with the client and share a few points of learning we hoped to have with them. In the second half of the episode, on the way back to the airport, you’ll hear them reflect on lessons learned from the group; things they were surprised by, and things that went pretty much as expected. They also share some personal and professional takeaways. There were some tremendous moments of learning, not just from the client, but for our team as well. No matter where you’re at on your Strengths journey there are some helpful insights you can take back to your team, to your organization, or maybe just implement in your own life.
In this episode of the Leadership Vision podcast, we’re experimenting with a new show format called “Quick Questions with Brian!” The idea is to ask our founder and CEO, Brian Schubring, one quick question about leadership, and get his best quick answer. Brian has 30+ years of experience not only coaching and consulting with all levels of high-impact leaders but also a plethora of experience of his own as a business owner and leader in a variety of capacities and in numerous contexts.
If you have a question about leadership you’d like Brian to answer or if you’d just like to give us some feedback on this occasional format (don’t worry, this isn’t replacing the longer format focusing on Strengths and teams) contact us!

To be honest, and not overtly overdramatic, my work and relationshp with this execeptional company literally changed my life…I learned more about myself as a leader, colleague, friend, father and husband than anything I’ve done before or since.
Leadership Vision has taken Strengths training to a new level. Participants not only know the language of Strengths, but they also understand that Strengths make each person unique.
Leadership Vision gave us a lens through which to view individual and group Strengths. This self awareness is powerful; the group awareness transformational.
Our organization has been working with Leadership Vision for several years and it has been a very gratifying and rewarding experience. We have not only moved to be a “Strengths-Based” organization by having everyone in the Company go through training with Leadership Vision, but we also now have internal coaches who have been trained by […]
We have recommended the remarkable team at Leadership Vision to a number of congregations. A common response we hear is the deep appreciation for the breakthroughs on how to better understand one another in the pursuit of a common mission.
