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.
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.
In this episode of the Leadership Vision Podcast, Linda Schubring and Nathan Freeburg are talking about what it takes to build a Strengths Based employee experience. The two get way down into the weeds. The good, the bad, and the ugly of transforming an organization into one that is planted deep in the soil of Strengths, and subscribes to a philosophy that everyone should operate from a position of Strength.
Today on the podcast, we’re doing something a little different. This is a mini-episode where we give you one Strengths-Based question to ponder over the week ahead. It’s something new we’re experimenting with so leave us some feedback and tell us what you think. The idea is to present one Strengths-Based question or challenge and see what you do with that in the next week. We want these mini-episodes to be very practical and give you one thing to focus on as you practice developing your awareness of how your Themes of Strength operate. Listen now to hear this week’s question!
Today on the podcast, our President, Brian Schubring, and I are talking about our values here at Leadership Vision. Values help guide the actions and decisions of an organization. When you take time to name them and write them down, you help define your core beliefs and set a direction towards what is most important. It’s something that can help your team unite around ideals and deal with conflict more positively.
