How would you like to make sure your team is maximizing its strengths? It is surprising how few teams are.
Gallup Research has shown that only 16% of CEOs feel they are adequately using their strengths and that the higher you go in an organization the less likely you are to use your strengths. Some of the most important work I do is to help individuals and teams understand their strengths and put them to better use. I believe we should only do what we are best at and leave the rest to someone else.
Here are what some clients have said about our work on strengths:
“Of all of the work we did together I think learning about my strengths and how to better use them was the most valuable lesson I learned.”
“I was kind of sad but didn’t know why. I learned that one of my strengths was WOO (Winning Others Over) and that I was sad because I was spending too much time in the office and not being out with people.”
“When we did the StrengthFinder I found out that 6 of the 9 members of my management team had Strategic as a strength. I had hired all Chiefs and no Indians. No wonder we were having trouble finishing tasks.“
My strengths are Strategic, Achiever, Maximizer, Futuristic and Belief. I believe I am putting them to use as a coach. I’d love to do the same with you or your team.
