In this episode, Sara Schlipp-Riedel and I discuss the idea of “Defending One’s Magic.” If that sounds a little “fluffy” to you, the idea is simple. Defending your magic is being able to fall back on truths learned through your Strengths whenever you question who you know yourself to be. It’s the idea of self-discovery, self-empowerment, and self-awareness.
As a shaper of culture, keep three things in mind: First, the convergence of cultures actually creates a new culture.

And so, I ask you, given who you are today, right here, right now, are you truly spending your resources in the right places and in the right proportions?

Reflection is a simple and powerful activity. We encourage all of our clients to do it, and when you spend a little time reflecting on how your Strengths interact with the world, you can better understand how they work, and what you might need to do to get more out of them.
