Join Our Summer 2019 Strengths Communicator Training! (Podcast)
Welcome to the next installment of the Leadership Vision Podcast where we share our expertise in the discovery, practice, and implementation of a Strengths-Based approach to people, teams, and culture.
On this episode of the podcast, we’re talking all about our Strengths Communicator Training. Most of this episode originally aired in October of 2017, but we’re releasing it again because we have our next training cohort starting in June of 2019. But if you already listened to that one, we’ve added something new here too.
In this episode of the podcast, we’ll share some of the insights we’ve gained from the hundreds of participants we’ve worked with over the past several years. Brian Schubring, our founder and President, unpacks our methodology and philosophy for discovering, implementing, and practicing a strengths-based approach to people, teams, and culture.
At the end of this episode, Carrie Jones and I give an update that we recorded recently with more insights and reflection since even the last time we released this.
If you can’t make it to Minneapolis for the training, but want to participate, let us know. We’ve been toying with the idea of offering an online only version of this, but nothing is set up yet. If enough of you are interested, maybe we can make that happen. It’s applicable to anyone, anywhere with an interest in getting the best out of themselves and those on their team.
What is Strengths Communicator Training?
Strengths Communicator Training is for individuals who want to enhance their skills to help others understand the unique behaviors of Strength. We believe anyone interested in understanding how their Strengths interact and behave at a deeper level could benefit from this, but, there are two groups in particular that we have specifically designed this for:
- An individual who represents an organization already utilizing Strengths who wants in-depth training to maximize their organization’s understanding and application of Strengths.
- Coaches or consultants who are looking to sharpen or enhance the work they are already doing with Strengths.
To become fluent in the language of Strengths, you need to understand the behaviors behind them. These behaviors give them “meaning, depth, color, dimension, sound, timing, and texture.” The behaviors, not the names, are where the uniqueness of each Strength exists. This is what participants of our Strengths Communicator Training learn to recognize.
Why We Created Strengths Communicator Training
For years, we sought a way to help organizations develop internal advocates to keep the Strengths movement alive once we were gone. If we really wanted the philosophy of Strengths to take root, it had to come from within. Here’s Brian describing the process in more detail:
It’s a way that an organization can rely on the external expertise that leadership vision provides to invest in the training and the development of internal advocates that will be able to keep the strengths movement alive. We have found that when an organization commits to a Strengths-Based philosophy, they will also need to commit to the development of internal advocates to carry on the work.
Our hope is to create an innovative way for organizations to integrate a Strengths-Based Philosophy enterprise-wide. This may begin with a specific team or a series of individuals interested in championing the initiative. Either way, it’s a long-term investment in the people and culture of the organization.
