The Leadership Vision Resource Library
As a shaper of culture, keep three things in mind: First, the convergence of cultures actually creates a new culture. Secondly, the convergence of cultures allows for individuals to grow in their unique identities. Finally, a Strengths Based approach can Infuse the world with Beauty and Brilliance through relationship and conversation.
When it comes to creating team building activities that actually work, we have found the best ones to be simple, repeatable, and sustainable. Brian shares three lessons to illustrate how to introduce professional best practices while using StrengthsFinder language to prompt team conversations and application.
We all have a finite amount of time and energy. And so, I ask you, given who you are today, right here, right now, are you truly spending your resources in the right places and in the right proportions? Or are you holding onto situations and relationships that are extraneous, broken, or lifeless? Aleasha explores the art of ending and the importance of pruning your life.
Do you have employees in your organization who have taken the StrengthsFinder assessment? Perhaps, you have taken the assessment organization-wide and you are wondering what to do next? Or maybe you are an individual who is fascinated by Strengths and desires deeper training and development. If any of this applies to you, join us on Thursday, March 30, 2017, from 2-4:30 PM for our next Leadership Vision Preview Experience at our offices in downtown Minneapolis!
Reflection is a simple and powerful activity. We encourage all of our clients to do it, and when you spend a little time reflecting on how your Strengths interact with the world, you can better understand how they work, and what you might need to do to get more out of them.
I have always been a “go with the flow” kind of person. I certainly like things a my way, but when things don’t go my way, I’m not too bent out of shape. I still get upset when a plan falls through, it’s just easy to find other ways to proceed. If you resonate with […]
In every one of my roles, I work with teams of people and use StrengthsFinder. The effectiveness, or ineffectiveness of those teams has a direct correlation to how well each team member is positioned, based on their strengths to impact the mission of the group. This plays out in a variety of contexts but, as Led Zeppelin sang […]
Why am I inviting people to be a part of a professional network? The answer is easy: connection, community, collaboration. Connection Individuals are stronger when connected. I have made many connections through LinkedIn that I highly value. When we connect with each other, we form new relationships and have an opportunity to refine who we are. […]
Have you struggled to talk about what you are good at? Maybe you have been told that you are a people person, but can’t describe it beyond that worn out cliche. Perhaps you are known for the great care you take in making decisions, but sometimes others can only see this as delaying the decision […]
I have the StrengthsFinder theme of Ideation. Ideas have always fascinated me. From the time I was young, I was often the one coming up with a new idea, or taking someone else’s ideas to an original place. Others would count on me to brainstorm something new for whatever project we were working on. This […]
Have you ever noticed someone who makes great decisions over and over, but it takes her a long time to do so? Do you know those people who are quiet throughout a whole meeting and then all of a sudden, in 2 sentences, they capture what needs to be done, said, or considered? Who are those people who just need a little more time to weigh the options? These people may have the strength of Deliberative.
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 […]

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.
