Are you asking the right questions when it comes to StrengthsFinder? Are any of us asking the right questions? At Leadership Vision, the most common question we get from people after they have taken the test is, “Now What?” Rather than jumping into a list of our services, maybe we need to take a moment to better understand what is behind the question. Linda shares some ideas for how we can make this happen.
At Leadership Vision, we believe that Strengths do not work alone, but in pairs. Sara’s Activator is influenced by her Strategic, in that, she is able to make decisions and move forward fast because she quickly surveys the potential obstacles and outcomes. But what happens when one Strength becomes overbearing? Sometimes, your judgement becomes clouded, one-sided, and you may feel un-centered. Below are some of Sara’s tactics she has practiced in an effort to harness it, and should be applicable to your Strengths journey as well.
Recently, Linda and Brian received news that a dear friend and mentor suddenly and tragically passed away. We were devastated and heartbroken…hurting for his wife and son, hurting for those influenced by his life, and grieving for our personal loss. He made a lifelong imprint on both Linda and myself as people and professionals. We did not choose this experience, we were chosen to share in this experience of grief, pain and suffering. In moments like these, you do not choose to be in pain, you just are. In moments like these, you do not choose to help, you just do. In moments like these, you do not choose to be human, you just are.
These days, there are all kinds of coaches who can help you get fit, get ready for the SAT, run a marathon, manage your emotional intelligence and more. Our process of coaching with StrengthsFinder at Leadership Vision is customized to the needs of our clients depending on what they want to achieve, where they are at in their careers and other factors. Joseph explains below how we try to help people understand their Strengths, deal with self-awareness issues, turn their focus from themselves to others and generally be more effective in whatever setting they find themselves.

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.
