In this episode, we share what teams have taught us about how they are building cultures where healthy communication patterns and preferences can take hold. We share some of our best takeaways, as well as some examples and ideas for how you might implement some of these best practices in your business, your organization, or even your family. Enjoy!
In this episode, Melissa Hyatt and I discuss trust and explore the idea of BRAVING, an acronym borrowed from Brené Brown that stands for Boundaries, Reliability, Accountability, Vault, Integrity, Non-judgment, and Generosity. BRAVING is a helpful tool to help us work through situations surrounding trust, perhaps when trust is broken or when building or gaining trust. It helps us to understand the different elements of how we develop trust on a deeper level. We unpack this idea of BRAVING, define the terms, and share some great examples to help you establish a deeper level of trust on your team. Enjoy!
In this episode, Melissa Hyatt, and I talk about courage and give you some tools to help you find a little courage of your own. We use five courage questions to help you think deeply and critically and lean into whatever challenges you’re facing. These versatile and helpful questions are designed to be used on a team with people you lead, with your family, or internally with yourself. Enjoy!
In this episode, we take a moment to pause and reflect on the last year of pandemic life. What world are we entering into? What have we learned from this strange time? And can we pause long enough to figure out what we truly value so that we can go back to a world where our priorities are aligned with the things that we value most?
In this episode of the Leadership Vision Podcast, Brian, Linda, and I reflect on our communication patterns and preferences as leaders and give each other feedback to better understand how we are actually communicating. We also model an activity on the show that you can do at home, so enjoy this episode and then try it for yourself!
How does your team collaborate? We believe you never really know how a team collaborates until you understand each member as an individual collaborator. Sometimes teams need greater alignment, agreement, or action in order to improve the way that the culture interacts with each other. In this episode of the Leadership Vision Podcast, we talk about what we’ve learned about collaboration in the context of who you are as a person, who you are on a team, and who you are within an organizational culture. We discuss our three-step process to help teams learn about their individual collaboration styles and how you and your team can become better collaborators together. Enjoy!
In this episode of the Leadership Vision Podcast, Brian, Linda, and I reflect on some of our earliest memories of our collaborative experiences and discuss how they have helped to shape or impact the way that we collaborate on teams today. As you listen to this episode, think about some of your earliest memories or memories in general of ways that you have collaborated. How does that impact you today?
In this episode of the Leadership Vision Podcast, we ask how we can be more mindful of our leadership moment, that moment when leadership is asked of us and our first response is to step back before we step in. We discuss the benefits of stepping back as a leader and two ways leaders can step back and reflect before they step in and act.
In this episode, we introduce Amy Rollinger, our wonderful new colleague who joined our team a little over four months ago (at the time of recording). We talk about those first few months on the job and what makes our onboarding process different at Leadership Vision. Whether you’re someone looking to make your own job shift or career change, or a manager who wants to know how to onboard someone in an effective way, this episode will be really helpful for you. Enjoy!
In this episode, Linda and Nathan reflect on recent trips they took over spring break and how they saw their Strengths show up in different situations and experiences. This exercise in reflection is an example of what we often do with clients. We ask them to use a recent event or activity or any life situation and reflect on how they saw their Strengths show up. It’s not only a way to better understand your Strengths or the Strengths of those around you, but it can also be a way to process all of life’s experiences.
In this episode of the Leadership Vision Podcast, we discuss our new and improved Strengths Communicator Training. Our next cohort is starting this summer and we would love for you to join us! Brian, Linda and I discuss what this training is all about and why you should consider going deeper in your knowledge of Strengths with the Strengths Communicator Training. Enjoy!
In this episode, we talk about how we are adapting around the three areas of investment, modification, and learning. Brian and Linda Schubring, our president and vice-president, spend time reflecting on all of the ways our business has changed over 2020 and what we have learned through the process. We hope it gives you some insight into the behind-the-scenes at Leadership Vision and provides takeaways to consider as we continue to operate in a virtual world. Enjoy!
In this episode, we talk about the importance of leaders who listen. We define what listening is, why it’s so difficult, why it’s so incredibly important, and then share a few observations we’ve made about the impact we can ALL have when we listen for and with our Strengths.
In this episode, Brian and Nathan share an unscripted conversation about current life challenges and adaptation. We take one simple idea and run with it. In short, we talk about adaptation and wellbeing. We discuss some ideas about how to figure out what your business looks like, what your leadership looks like, what your family, relationships, and all kinds of other things look like as they relate to change and taking care of yourself. We also dive into a number of tips for managing adaptations whether they are permanent or temporary. Enjoy!

To be honest, and not overtly overdramatic, my work and relationshp with this execeptional company literally changed my life…I learned more about myself as a leader, colleague, friend, father and husband than anything I’ve done before or since.
Leadership Vision has taken Strengths training to a new level. Participants not only know the language of Strengths, but they also understand that Strengths make each person unique.
Leadership Vision gave us a lens through which to view individual and group Strengths. This self awareness is powerful; the group awareness transformational.
Our organization has been working with Leadership Vision for several years and it has been a very gratifying and rewarding experience.
