The Necessity of the Team Health Check (Re-Broadcast)

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’re talking about how to take the pulse of your team so 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.

About the Team Health Check

In this episode of the Leadership Vision Podcast, Aleasha Morris and Nathan Freeburg talk about teams, specifically, how to know if they are thriving or just surviving. This is the first episode in a series of podcasts about how to make sure your team is the most effective, efficient, and engaged that it can be! In this episode, you’ll learn about our process to help teams fully engage and we’ll introduce the three core elements of our Team Engagement Process: Knowledge, Purpose, and Trust.

We have worked for over fifteen years, helping people understand their own strengths and reveal their greatest potential. But what we heard repeatedly were questions like these: “So now what?” “How do I apply this on my team?” “It has really helped me, but how can it help the rest of them?

Essentially, we recognized that there was a gap between the individual strengths work and the integration of Strengths work at the team level. We knew that simply knowing your own Strengths was not enough.

So, with purpose and intention over multiple years, we studied over 140 professional teams. Our findings were clear. Regardless of the industry, team size, or structure, the obstacles to maintaining a healthy, high-functioning team centered around 3 core areas:

  1. Knowledge
  2. Purpose
  3. Trust
