Leading through change is a constant challenge for all leaders. No matter your scope of influence or the number of people being affected, change will always be one of the challenges facing leaders. Change will test your adaptive capacities. Change will cast shadows of doubt within yourself, cloud your vision of the future, and erode the clarity of a well-planned strategy. Change may threaten relational trust and distract even the most focused of your team. On the other hand, change can be a welcome catalyst for greater clarity, compassion, and community.

The strength of Input is generative when it uses the information to inform, teach and support other people. Often, most people do not remember or recall the information that is necessary or important, here is where Input is valuable. When armed with just the right piece of information, anecdote, illustration or data point, someone with Input can be a key change agent.
People with the strength of Individualization see each person as one of a kind. They are intrigued by the unique qualities of each person.
Recently we were asked if we could give some tips to help a small team lead their own 60 – 90 minute strengths event. Typically we spend almost an hour just on introductions (it’s amazing how much you can learn about a person’s strengths with a well crafted introduction question). To condense it down to 90 […]
A ThemePrint is a unique expression, an imprint, of your themes of strength. A ThemePrint is an image, a visual representation of how your talents, your behaviors, express your strength. A ThemePrint also captures how strong each of your behaviors or talents are.
