There is one question we seem to get a lot as it relates to the top 5 StrengthsFinder Theme report: Is there such a thing as Strengths Balance? At Leadership Vision, we believe there is no such thing as ‘Strengths Balance’ or having the ‘right’ set of Strengths for a given job or leadership role. In this episode, we discuss our understanding of balance as it pertains to Strengths and how to shift the conversation from balanced or unbalanced to becoming the best version of you.
