On this episode, Logan and I discuss three types of fit: Personal, Relational, and Environmental. Listen now as we unpack those three areas of fit and talk about a few things to look for to help bring some alignment around this idea. Then, evaluate your situation to determine if you are in a good Strengths fit.
Our Approach to Building Strong People, Strong Teams and Strong Culture
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!
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?
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.
