How One CEO Built a Strengths Based Company (podcast)
Welcome to the next installment of the Leadership Vision Podcast, where we share our expertise in the discovery, practice, and implementation of StrengthsFinder.
The podcast today is the second part of our two-part series about creating a strengths-based employee experience. In the previous episode, episode 33, I talked with Linda Schubring about the nitty-gritty of what she is doing at a local company, Aeritae Consulting group, to create that culture rooted in what is right about people. In this episode, you’ll get to hear from the CEO and co-founder of that company, Michael Finlon.
In this episode, Michael talks from his perspective, about what it takes to build and sustain a Strengths-Based culture. We talk about why he chose Strengths to begin with, and why they have stuck with it for all these years. He also shares some advice for other leaders who want to build their own Strengths culture, as well as the struggles, and tremendous benefits, of defending this work.
Michael’s background is as an electrical engineer who traversed the IT world until he started Aeritae Consulting Group in 2001. His extraordinary relational skills and intelligence are unmatched. He is indeed the one who cares about the people of Aeritae, and it is his encouragement that pushes them towards excellence every day. In 2010 Aeritae began their strengths journey with Leadership Vision, and are a shining example of what it means to be a Strengths-based organization.
