Happy Holidays! We’re talking a break from our regularly scheduled podcast to bring you something different. At our company holiday gathering this year, Nathan took out the recorder and asked the entire Leadership Vision team to share one thing they were looking forward to in 2018. Today’s episode is an excerpt from that time together. The conversation happened after dinner, where we’d just had a delicious meal and were sitting around the table, laughing, sharing and spending nonwork-focused time together. ENJOY!
Today on the Leadership Vision Podcast, Brian Schubring and Nathan Freeburg talk about how, why, and when we use the four domains of Strength in our work with clients. Domains organize the 34 Themes of Strengths into four major categories, which are Thinking, Relating, Influencing, and Executing. They allow us to get a broad understanding of Themes before going deeper. Listen now!
A strength’s based approach is integral to understanding the values that define generations. In this episode, Logan and Nathan focus on the importance of values as it relates to Strengths, and how understanding the intersection of the two is critical when it comes to operating more effectively as a group, especially when you have multiple generations working together.
Have you ever felt frustrated with a friend or colleague because their Strengths were different than yours? Maybe you didn’t have the language of Strengths, but there was something fundamentally different in how they communicated, organized, or related to the world from you. Too often we just find ourselves growing more and more frustrated and annoyed with those people, rather than taking the time to see how our differences may actually benefit one and other. Steph writes about one simple way to overcome this.
Welcome to the next installment of the Leadership Vision Podcast, where we share our expertise in the discovery, practice, and implementation of StrengthsFinder. Today’s show focuses on embracing your StrengthsFinder Theme Names. In last week’s episode, Nathan talked with Carrie Jones, our COO, about some of the ways she has learned to embrace and accept her Themes of Strength on a personal level. On today’s show, Nathan talks with our founder and CEO, Brian Schubring, about specific ways we help our clients understand and embrace their StrengthsFinder Theme names.
