The Leadership Vision Resource Library
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!
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!

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, 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!
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.
In this episode of the Leadership Vision Podcast, we discuss how the language of Strengths can inform how our behaviors and convictions influence and shape others.

At the end of the episode, we share an activity helpful for anyone looking to dive deeper into their understanding of Strengths and moral conviction. Enjoy!
In this episode of the Leadership Vision Podcast, we discuss our process of executive coaching and what we’ve been learning over the past 18 months.

We hope there is something of value here as we all wrestle with becoming emotionally healthy during this challenging time.

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.
