Leadership Vision is excited to announce a new series this summer! Starting Monday, June 19th at 10:15 AM (PST), 12:15 PM (CST) and running every other week until Labor Day, join us for our Summer Series of Strengths Questions. Carrie and Nathan will talk about some of the best ways to have Strengths Based conversations with your team.
2015 was a great year for Leadership Vision. We grew our team by three, took on several new clients, and launched an online offering of our core offering. A big theme we kept coming back to was team. Not only in the way we thought about and intentionally grew our own team, but the way we worked with other teams has changed as well. Teams are vitally important to any organization. Drilling into our google analytics, it was obvious that this is what our readers cared about as well. Keep reading to learn our five most searched and shared articles from 2015. All of them, in some way, reference Strengths work with teams.
When working in a team environment, one of the hardest things to do is work on that team. Often we get so bogged down by the tasks of the day, we don’t take time to focus on what makes us strong, what frustrates us, or where we could learn from others. This is why we love team building activities around Strengths! Here are three reasons why what we do with teams is so helpful to all teams for exploring Strengths.
There will come time when it is your turn to lead. Maybe your skills are highly tuned to a particular set of circumstances .

Keep reading to learn about an easy team building activity that will provide examples of your Strengths when they are on and when they are on the sidelines.
One trend we are seeing more and more, is people want StrengthsFinder to become a formula or a prescription. Or worse, a label. We have written about some of this before, but it is worth further explanation. It is key to focus on the positive aspects of Strengths. As consultants, we steer people back to understanding their own strengths and taking the time to understand their co-workers strengths. Keep reading as Joseph describes our four part process to do this.
