It’s tough to give or receive feedback in a culture of ‘nice’, where we infinitely extend grace. While working with organizations I notice the leaders becoming frustrated that their people aren’t performing as expected. Yet, not wanting their people to feel bad, they avoid the difficult conversations that hold people accountable. Some leaders create stories […]
Unleash Your Full Power: Seek Strengths Based Leadership Coaching
What if I told you the reason you feel exhausted and drained at the end of each day is something that you have the power to change. What if I also told you that you could feel energized, fulfilled and enthusiastic about the work you do if you knew only one thing?
What is that one thing? Quite simply: You can become a great leader, have a more productive career, generate a higher income, and better engage others in their work by embracing your unique gifts and talents.
Your gifts and talents—your Strengths—have been part of you your whole life. But, like most people, you are probably unaware of what they are or what to do with them. That is where Strengths Based leadership coaching comes in. Through this powerful process, you will:
- Uncover your Strengths
- Discover your core values
- Understand clearly how to best apply your Strengths
- Develop Strengths Intelligence (knowing what your Strengths contribute, the needs of your Strengths and how to mitigate weaknesses)
- Gain crystal clarity on what to say “yes” (and “no”!) to
- Stretch your capacity and hone your “edge”
Strengths Are the Foundation for a Thriving Life.
Your Strengths are the foundation for your life. They show up in everything you do and in who you are at your core. And they are absolutely unique to you; the chances that someone else has the exact same top ten Strengths as you are one in 33 million!
Knowing your unique talents and being able to apply and live through them ensures that you will accomplish more, make a greater impact, increase your personal and professional efficiencies, and experience greater fulfillment and joy.
Sound impossible? It isn’t. But you have to make the conscious decision to lean into your Strengths in all you do.
Stop Playing Small!
I love this quote by Marianne Williamson in her book, A Return to Love: “Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.” You are meant to shine!
When you learn how to be your best self, you are able to make more impactful contributions to the world and inspire others to do the same. You achieve all of this while being in alignment with what matters most to you. If you want to make this happen, contact me. As your Strengths Based leadership coach, I will serve as the catalyst to help you apply your strengths and realize your dreams.

The ability to put feedback into perspective is a gift. Today, during a coaching conversation, a client shared a big AHA moment they experienced after becoming frustrated that the service person was not understanding and not addressing their concerns about a system being installed in their home. It wasn’t until later that evening that the […]
Continuing our focus on ‘The Gift of Giving & Receiving Feedback’ this week, I reflect on some of my more painful growth edges—when I’ve truly taken to heart difficult feedback. Enabling me to sit with and grow from the feedback is my trust in the intentions of those providing me with the feedback, and knowing […]
Following the last few blogs on Creating Cultures of Trust, I think about an overlooked aspect of the trust dynamic—our openness to courageously offer honest feedback and receive feedback as a gift that helps us to be the best versions of ourselves. With the strengths package that I was given I feel compelled, at times, […]
I recently had a long and difficult conversation with a client who is working toward creating a Culture of Trust in their organization. Committed and excited to make this happen in 2018, they are used to creating a plan for what they want and executing it with success. With their dominant strength lying in the […]
As a leader, you entrust your team members to complete tasks. You can do this by deciding that your approach to the task is right or you can trust your people to accomplish the task from their strengths lens or perspective. Adopting a Strategic Interdependence Mindset is a choice you can make to support and […]
