At Leadership Vision, we are well aware of the profound importance emotional intelligence plays in the lives and careers of our clients. Data shows that building Emotionally Intelligent People, Teams, and Cultures is more important for effectiveness, engagement, and productivity than nearly any other single business objective. As you work toward an Emotionally Intelligent team dynamic, how can you use Strengths as the baseline for growth?
Our Approach to Building Strong People, Strong Teams and Strong Culture
In this episode of the Leadership Vision Podcast, Brian Schubring and Nathan Freeburg talk about the discipline of interpreting and understanding Strengths. They talk about why the way we teach others to explain and understand Strengths is different from how we’ve traditionally been taught how to learn and how to reframe four common Strengths related questions.
On this episode of the Leadership Vision Podcast, Carrie Jones and Nathan Freeburg discuss the link between fear and courage, and how both are necessary. We wrestle with the appropriate role that fear plays in helping us become courageous, but also how fear can paralyze us and prevent us from reaching our potential. Fear is temporary; regret is forever. We also share a prompt at the end to encourage you to act more courageously, so listen now!
On this episode of the Leadership Vision podcast, Brian Schubring and I talk about how to take our origin stories and frame them in ways that put them in their rightful place. To do this, we share five steps that will help us acknowledge the role our past has played in shaping our present and future. We’ll also share some tips for giving it an appropriate place in our current life, so listen now!
The podcast today is the second part of our two-part series about creating a strengths-based employee experience. In the previous episode, episode 33, I talked with Linda Schubring about the nitty-gritty of what she is doing at a local company, Aeritae Consulting group, to create that culture rooted in what is right about people. In this episode, you’ll get to hear from the CEO and co-founder of that company, Michael Finlon. Michael talks from his perspective, about what it takes to build and sustain a Strengths-Based culture. We talk about why he chose Strengths to begin with, and why they have stuck with it for all these years. He also shares some advice for other leaders who want to build their own Strengths culture, as well as the struggles, and tremendous benefits, of defending this work.
