Today on the podcast, Brian, Steph, and I talk about how our Themes of Strength show up in one of our daily routines; working out. We know that may sound odd, but for the three of us competing in athletic endeavors is a huge part of our lives. Steph holds her college school record for the high jump.

It’s simply about looking at one area of our lives that we value and put a lot of our time and energy towards and examine how we see our Strengths showing up there. We could just as easily talk about how our Strengths show up in other hobbies or parenting styles, or how we approach involvement in any number of activities.
We believe strengths show up in every part of our lives and by taking the time to examine one of those daily routines, we can reveal more about how Strengths show up in other areas as well. Or maybe not as you’ll soon hear.
