The Leadership Vision Resource Library
On this episode of the Leadership Vision podcast, we’re confronting the assumption that specific Strengths are good “leadership Strengths.” There’s a painful idea out there that leaders should possess particular Strengths, and if a person doesn’t have them, they won’t make for an effective leader. We think it probably comes from using one or two successful leader types as the mold by which ALL leaders should copy. An effective leader can have ANY number of Strengths combinations. There is no mold.
We’re incredibly passionate about this because you can’t look at five words on a page and presume to know how that person is using their Strengths to influence others. In this episode, we work to break down these presuppositions through the use of story.
On this episode of the podcast, I’m chatting with our founder and president, Brian Schubring, about Strengths and Diversity. We know the word diversity means many things, but on the show, we’re using it to illustrate how a common language of Strengths can lead us to a greater understanding of the things that make us unique. Most often, when someone goes through an experience with Strengths, they receive their top 5 Themes and those words describe things about them. Many times, there’s an alignment happening around those words but what they mean for each person can be significantly different based on any number of factors. It’s all very positive and helpful but what we’re doing at Leadership Vision is taking it a step further. You’ve probably heard us refer to this before, but we take a behavior-based approach to interpreting and understanding Strengths at a talent level. Listen NOW to learn more!
On this mini-episode of the podcast, we’ve got a simple Strengths question for you to ponder. We’ve found that reflecting on a straightforward question can be a profound way of understanding ourselves better. When we also look at questions through a lens of Strength, we can create a much deeper level of understanding about how we interact with the world.
So today, the question is this: what gives you energy?
Reflect on the things that give you energy in life and then try to connect them back to one of your Themes of Strength.
On this episode of the podcast, we’re talking all about our Strengths Communicator Training.

Today’s episode is the eighth and final of our series on push conversations, and we’re closing it out by talking about how our Strengths help us navigate relationships. Navigate in this instance refers to everything related to relationships. How you form them, how you nurture and tend to them, and maybe even how you end them if that’s what needed. Relationships, or the way we connect to other people, is such a vital topic that we saved the best for last.
On this episode of the podcast, I’m chatting again with Sara Schlipp-Reidel, our Senior Client Relations Manager and Business Development Lead here at Leadership Vision. Sara and I have worked together quite a bit over the past year, and have witnessed each other navigating all sorts of relationships; with our team, with clients, personal relationships, and the plethora of random individuals we encounter when traveling. We had a lot of examples to share. This episode is a little longer than usual, but if you listen to all of it, you’ll hear us process how we establish relationships and tend to the ones that are closest to us. We’ll also discuss how we try to use our Strengths to establish a connection to others, so we can move closer to a greater sense of knowing others and being known.

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.
