The Leadership Vision Resource Library
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.
Are you building a Strengths-based organization? Our advice is to take action on three key elements: use a common language, facilitate shared experiences, and bolster the narrative intelligence among your members.
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.
Have you ever wondered why some people are just so confident? You know who they are, they seem to never get nervous or jittery, never afraid when something big is about to happen. Do you know someone who seems to always be ready to take on a challenge, and somehow you find yourself joining in? […]
I used to play chess all the time. I love the multi-dimensional nature of chess, the complexity and the way this game involves my mind. I used to play all the time – on my computer, on my phone and occasionally in person. I enjoyed playing chess more by myself because it was something that […]
People with the strength of Responsibility follow through on their commitments – they are known to take “psychological ownership” for anything they commit to… relationships, work, personal interests, volunteer opportunities, critical causes etc.
Have you ever met someone who all of a sudden, seems like your best friend? Do you know someone who gets asked to be in weddings of people he hardly knows? Have you ever met someone who made you feel so comfortable that you found yourself sharing information that seemed well, a little too much—I […]
Assembling a strengths based team is difficult. You want to get the most out of each member. To do that, make sure you’re not doing these three things.
Who are those people in your life that are consistently improving upon excellence… whether its self-improvement, home improvement or trying to improve you? Who are those people known for enhancing, upgrading, and perfecting anything in their path? If you have ever been encouraged by someone to go beyond your capacity, been pushed to become beyond […]

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.
