As we head into this next season the concept of protecting one’s magic – understanding what makes you uniquely you – is especially important. Below are Sara’s suggestions for protecting your magic and finding compassion for the magic of those around you.
We are often asked by managers and supervisors to work with certain Teams because they are having trouble or in crisis. As consultants, it can feel a bit like untangling a chain; every kink and knot is connected, but you really do not know where to begin. Regardless, it is imperative to create a shared experience that will help Teams to re-align their purpose, recalibrate their objectives and re-structure their practices. Today Aleasha shares a few ways to make this happen.
At Leadership Vision, we implore our clients that no matter what their title, they can lead. We believe leadership is about influence, and everyone has influence. What does that mean for followers? Today, Joseph shares how you can you use your Strengths to be a better follower where you are.
We often like to talk about our StrengthsFinder themes in the best possible situation. Strengths exist when you’re at your best. Anything short of that isn’t a Strength, but a Theme. Yet life isn’t that easy. Today, Carrie shares three things she has learned about Strengths as she has examined them in the “real world.”
Strengths Based Selling (SBS) by Tony Rutigliano and Brian Brim is yet another book based on the foundation of the Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment. If you haven’t taken that yet, we’d like to highly encourage you to take it! This book will provide you with a code, as well as another lens with which to look at […]
The tension was palpable. Behind the sanctuary of the Cathedral of St. Paul, eight adults huddled over their VisionTrekk instructions, squinting at the minutely printed placards describing images on the ornate bronze grills. There were four potential solutions to the puzzle, but no one could agree which was the right one. As most of the […]
Many people have asked us, “Why have you spent the last 12 years focused on StrengthsFinder?” Or something that sounds like this, “How can you build a consulting firm around one primary tool?” Each time I have heard this question I have answered it in a variety of ways. Then recently I was asked to write […]
Continuing on in my mini series about my own strengths and how they play out in my day to day life, today I focus on the strength of “Significance.” From Gallup, the definition of Significance: “You want to be very significant in the eyes of other people. In the truest sense of the word you […]
This picture illustrates how my brain works – always focused on the horizon. I ask, “Where am I headed?” and “How can I get there?” Do you get so zoned in on something the rest of the world does not exist? Is it hard when someone interrupts something you are doing? Do you find it […]
When we look only for opportunities to lead, we often miss the more frequent and more common opportunities for meaningful influence. Influence of others through the more common, relational and unsuspecting moments make the more lasting impact. But in doing so, we need to pay attention more, a lot more. I believe by focusing on […]
Are you paying attention? Small moments of influence are happening all the time, all around us – An unbelievable opportunity for personal and professional development awaiting for our participation. Here is where the measure of our influence is truly gained: we discover our passion and awareness for others, we gain an indication of our capacity […]
Please, do not focus on being a leader… it’s a waste of your time. We should not focus on leadership opportunities with a concern of ‘what’s is in it for me?’ Our time should be invested in the discovery and understanding of what is in me for all opportunities. When focused on being a leader, even in […]
I run a half dozen road races every year. I have my training plan, and goal times in place well before I start. I register for races early and immediately build a 12 week training scheduled into my life. A few years ago, my plans were suddenly thrown out the window when extreme heat changed […]
CoCo Minneapolis. It’s Official, we’re in our first space. This is a very catalytic step for us. It was time to pull the trigger on getting a place to park our brains and build on what we have been doing so well for the past few years. Building strong teams. This was getting harder for us to do […]

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.
