The Strengths conversation is at the heart of what we do at Leadership Vision. It is both art and science. It’s structured yet organic. There are rules, there are suggestions, and there’s a whole lot of room to go with your gut, but it is a proven process for helping people to understand what makes them unique. If we had to synthesize all the things that we’ve learned about Strengths conversations over the past 20 years, working with Strengths in the past 10 years of training others, it comes down to three things. In this episode, we share three keys to hosting a successful and generative Strengths conversation. Even if you haven’t been trained in Strengths, they’re great reminders for all of us as we converse with anyone.

Every team that has ever existed has been presented with some sort of challenge. In fact, some people might argue that the sole purpose of a team is to tackle problems and overcome challenges. While there are many great resources on how to build a successful team, we think there are really only three essential elements for teams to tackle problems and thrive. In this episode, we discuss how to embrace compassion, courage, and connection to build successful teams. We also share a few tips for implementing these essential things on your team.
