In this episode of the Leadership Vision Podcast, Linda Schubring and Nathan Freeburg are talking about what it takes to build a Strengths Based employee experience. The two get way down into the weeds. The good, the bad, and the ugly of transforming an organization into one that is planted deep in the soil of Strengths, and subscribes to a philosophy that everyone should operate from a position of Strength.
Today on the podcast, we’re doing something a little different. This is a mini-episode where we give you one Strengths-Based question to ponder over the week ahead. It’s something new we’re experimenting with so leave us some feedback and tell us what you think. The idea is to present one Strengths-Based question or challenge and see what you do with that in the next week. We want these mini-episodes to be very practical and give you one thing to focus on as you practice developing your awareness of how your Themes of Strength operate. Listen now to hear this week’s question!
Today on the podcast, our President, Brian Schubring, and I are talking about our values here at Leadership Vision. Values help guide the actions and decisions of an organization. When you take time to name them and write them down, you help define your core beliefs and set a direction towards what is most important. It’s something that can help your team unite around ideals and deal with conflict more positively.
At Leadership Vision, we approach the process of change by looking at it through the lens of Strengths. Knowing your Strengths doesn’t necessarily make the process of change any faster or easier, but most often, it does make it go a little smoother. This is because knowing Strengths asks everyone to examine their responses to change and understand the perspectives of others.
Recently Sara and I led a team engagement session on the topic of change. What follows are a few of my reflections from that session, as well as the two questions we ask everyone to answer before moving through change. Not only are there a few light-bulb moments but we share excellent reminders for all of us trying to influence positive change in our organizations.
Today on the podcast, we’re talking about the importance of listening for Talents as a way to better understand what is going on with a person’s Strengths profile. Talents, the building blocks of a Strength, are the recognizable patterns of thought, feeling, and emotion that point to an area of a person’s greatest potential. There’s something here for Strengths practitioners as well as individuals who want to take their Strengths knowledge to the next level, so LISTEN NOW!
