Today on the podcast, Sara and Nathan discuss 10 questions our team used to take the pulse of our team mid-year. For a list of them head over to our blog. After you listen to this episode, try them out on your team and let us know how it went!
We’re taking a short break from new episodes of the Leadership Vision Podcast where we share our expertise in the discovery, practice, and implementation of CliftonStrengths. But rather than go silent for the next few weeks, we thought we would re-broadcast some of our favorite episodes from the past year. Logan Joyce and I sat down to talk about the episodes that have made the biggest impression on us in the past year. There’s nothing technical about this, just four episodes that we really, really liked! You may have missed these episodes, but even if you didn’t, we think you’ll enjoy re-listening to them as you move into the new year.
In this episode of the podcast, we talk about how to take the pulse of your team so that you can be the best version of yourself that you can possibly be. We’ll be back on January 7, 2019, with all new episodes to help you further develop your Strengths, the Strengths of your team, and the Strengths of your organization.
Today on the podcast, Brian Schubring and I are talking about why we spend so much time focused on teams. We unpack five things that are incredibly important to team health. It’s our why; why we do this work. When we work with groups, we help them move through normal dynamics and functions that every team experiences. We also want teams to put into practice some lessons that we’ve learned on how teams function well together.
There’s something here that you might be able to take back to your team right away and try to implement.
In this episode of the Leadership Vision Podcast, Brian Schubring and Nathan Freeburg talk about the discipline of interpreting and understanding Strengths. They talk about why the way we teach others to explain and understand Strengths is different from how we’ve traditionally been taught how to learn and how to reframe four common Strengths related questions.
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. 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.
