At Leadership Vision, we believe everyone has influence. Whether you’re a CEO leading thousands, a manager of hundreds, a teacher with a room full of students, a parent managing your household or anything in between, ALL of us can lead and influence others.
But how do we influence and how does the unique combination of your skills, experiences, and interests set you up to succeed in whatever environment you’re in? We believe one way is by understanding your Strengths.
Seeing Strengths from a New Perspective
We are delighted to tell you that we have launched a new, online 6-part video course series to broaden your understanding and expertise in the application of Strengths. Seeing Strengths from a New Perspective is designed to expand your influence, build on your Strengths knowledge, bring clarity to misunderstanding, and discover new ways to apply your knowledge.
But this course isn’t merely a bunch of vocabulary definitions. Rather, this course will open your eyes to a deeper and more nuanced experience of your Strengths. This course is for those who want to thrive and grow in self-awareness and professional application of their Strengths.
More than Definitions
Here’s an example: let’s say you want to learn how to cook. You would go to a cooking school where they teach you how to cut vegetables, the proper temperature of cooked meats, how to blend flavors, etc. It’s precise, organized, and teaches the basics. But when you’re looking to experience a meal, perhaps for a birthday or special occasion, you wouldn’t go to a cooking school. No. You would find a restaurant with a great chef and good reviews.
At a restaurant, the staff is doing all of the things that can be learned in cooking school, but they’re actually taking their lessons and turning them into a memorable dining experience. The food is fantastic along with everything else, from the dishes to the drinkware to the presentation of the food, and the overall ambiance. It’s an experience.
That’s sort of what we hope to accomplish with this course. You’re not going to learn a bunch of definitions or formulas about how to interpret Strengths in every situation. Rather, you’ll discover new ways to apply your Strengths knowledge. This course will give you a framework to invest in life-long growth as you continue to learn how to become who you are meant to be and use your Strengths in productive ways in whatever context you find yourself.
Here’s what’s included in this course:
6 Video Trainings, each 15-20 minutes with topics including:
- How Strengths are detected through Attitudes, Beliefs, Feelings, and Motivation
- What are ‘Domains of Strength’ and how your Strengths help ‘do’ them
- How Strengths are experienced on a continuum of extremes
- How Strengths show up in cognitive formation
- How to bring Strengths ‘into the light’
- How Strengths break and how to put them back together again
You’ll also get 6 Downloadable Course Companions that include a written summary of each lesson, point of reflection, and activities for application. By joining the course, you also get to be part of a community of people engaging and processing this content.
Regardless of who you are or how much experience you have with Strengths, this course will give you a more robust understanding and application of a Strengths-based approach to personal and team health.
