The 1 to 1 Conversation: Creating a Seismic Shift in Understanding Your Strengths

Knowing your top 5 strengths is only the beginning. You may feel validated, vulnerable and skeptical, but something about the language of strengths makes you want to know more. The ground is shifting beneath your feet;  how do you make sense of it all?

RUMBLINGS – YOU’VE GOT YOUR TOP 5 STRENGTHS….NOW WHAT?

At Leadership Vision Consulting, we believe that the true power of this work comes not in simply knowing your strengths. Instead, we prefer to take a relational and intentional approach to help you gain a deeper understanding of the genesis and evolution of your distinct strengths profile. We make an investment in you.

THE QUAKE – WHAT THE 1 TO 1 CONVERSATION FEELS LIKE

In the 1 to 1 conversation, an experienced LVC consultant creates the time and space for an earnest strengths-based dialogue. It is here that you will begin to make significant personal connections between who you are and what makes you strong. We will explore the generative application of your strengths, and seek to understand how these unique strengths work together to give life to you and to others.

Without exception, our clients recognize that the 1 to 1 conversation session is a key differentiator for LVC. This “power hour” is meant to stretch your thinking and challenge your assumptions. It will also shine the light on how you can use your strengths positively to impact and influence others.

After my own 1 to 1 session, it was like a weight had been lifted. Finally, I made sense to myself! I could not have predicted how incredibly liberating it would be to simply connect the dots of my life and watch the patterns of strength emerge.

AFTERSHOCKS – THE 1 TO 1 OFFERS DEEPER REFLECTION

The 1 to 1 session is often a catalyst for deeper introspection, greater self-awareness, and personal acceptance.  While the magnitude of this individual growth and change is immeasurable, it is undeniably profound.

In a recent 1 to 1 session, I spoke with Kate, a talented middle-aged woman making the transition from her neatly-edged corporate world to the wild frontier of self-employment. It was a pivotal time in her life. Together we explored her strengths and Significance emerged as a driving force in her need for an extensive  career change.

For many years, Kate followed a conventional path. But now, she could no longer ignore her natural inclination to want to be a part of something bigger and more important than simply the next job title up the ladder. Our time together gave her clarity, reinforced her conviction, and allowed her to be unapologetic about her choices.

Without the 1 to 1 conversation, I have no doubt that Kate’s strengths would have remained flat on the page. Today, they are alive and giving her the momentum she needs. A simple, focused conversation with extraordinary results.
