The millennial generation accounts for nearly 40% of the western workforce and will continue to define the workspace as more millennials rise through corporate ranks in the coming years. How are you preparing your team and culture to reach and empower this generation?
In this episode, Carrie and Nathan will recap our previous episode, then define conflict and challenge, as well as discuss how we have seen both of these things in our company.
Today’s guest post is from Hana Matsudaira, one of the students we worked with at SAS. We first met Hana in her Junior Year. We were impressed by her deep insight into the adolescent experience and her desire to help students make meaningful connections beyond test scores. She is now entering her Senior year at SAS and is spearheading a movement to integrate the language of Strengths into the fabric of the student high school experience. We’ve invited Hana to share her story with us.
A table has profoundly shaped Brian’s Strengths. His experience at this table also shaped why he believes strongly in the Leadership Vision team sharing their perspectives, challenging each other, and openly asking for help as they work together in collaborative partnership. Keep reading today’s post, then interact around the question, “What have been the shaping influences of your Strengths?”
Leadership Vision will be hosting our second, Summer Strengths Conversation on Monday, June 26 at 12:10 PM (CST). We will pose this question: Am I a Good Team Member? Join us as we dive into this important topic.
One of the best parts of my job working with the Clifton StrengthsFinder doing strengths based organizational consulting is that we are always working with new clients. This happens all over the United States, and more and more, all over the world. One of our teams is off to Singapore in a few days. Another […]
Recently, I recapped the 10 most frequently asked questions about how we are using strengths from the StrengthsFinder assessment. One of the questions requires a bit more of an in depth answer. The question was: What do you Teach in your Introductory Education day (Strengths 201)? We begin every engagement with a StrengthsFinder education day […]
The Inevitable I have attended far too many funerals this year. Some expected and some not. Well-intentioned euphemisms like ‘Memorial’ or ‘Celebration of Life’ are a generous attempt to ease the grief and shift the emotional tide. Yes, they do give us a chance to weave together the memories and relationships that ultimately create the […]
Last week we hosted our third explore strengths preview day. We do this four times a year. We invite people to learn about strengths, our company, and the unique way we are helping our clients build strengths based organizational culture. We hold four of these events every year, because we believe in giving part of […]
What I appreciate about StrengthsFinder is that it Focuses on What is Right about People, helps Teams become Stronger and Improves Employee Engagement.
I have been on a stage my entire professional career. Being on a stage, my voice has always been amplified through a microphone. One thing I have learned: being heard takes more than raising the volume – it also involves speaking clearly, annunciation, articulation, listening, and the help of great sound technicians. One of the best […]
Have you ever worked with someone who is really good at making decisions? In confusion, who usually makes a decision and seems to unlock clarity for the group? Do you know people who love to be part of the decision making process—no matter what is being decided? Perhaps these people have the strength of Strategic.
Would you like to experience a taste of what we do with StrengthsFinder? Would you like to learn more about your own strengths? Would you like to envision how your organization might benefit from strengths based organizational consulting? If you answered yes to some of those questions, join us August 15th 2014 in Minneapolis from […]
Have you ever been baffled when someone just steps in to fix something, and succeeds? Or do you have a favorite chiropractor, mechanic or doctor who always seems to figure out what is needed? Or maybe you work with someone who is always figuring out ways to modify or adjust what you’re doing so you are more efficient. If so, you may have met someone with the strength of Restorative.
Our approach in helping to building strengths based culture is to focus on strengths as being descriptive, generative, environmental and transformational. This is why we take a behavior based approach to the understanding and application of StrengthsFinder. We create a relational and intentional connection with those we work with. Awareness of the behaviors behind strengths help better identify how you will make a significant and unique contribution to the team.

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. We have not only moved to be a “Strengths-Based” organization by having everyone in the Company go through training with Leadership Vision, but we also now have internal coaches who have been trained by […]
We have recommended the remarkable team at Leadership Vision to a number of congregations. A common response we hear is the deep appreciation for the breakthroughs on how to better understand one another in the pursuit of a common mission.
