Lead Through Strengths with Lisa Cummings | building engaged teams & stronger leadership w/ StrengthsFinder & natural talents
About This Show
Show Info: The "Lead Through Strengths" podcast was created for you if you're ready to stop taking the "path of most resistance" at work. Current episodes are educational snippets from Q&A with our audience. They're usually questions we get in our StrengthsFinder team training sessions. It sounds silly, yet it happens all the time when people get focused on fixing their weaknesses. It doesn't have to be so hard. Stop focusing on what's broken about you. Lisa Cummings, the host, is a Gallup Certified Strengths Performance Coach, so she brings you a wealth of corporate wisdom, combined with Gallup research. You'll learn how to find your strengths and put them to work. If you manage a team, you'll hear ideas for leading your so your colleagues can come to work feeling more energized and engaged. If you're ready to get your career mojo back, Lisa Cummings delivers it with straight talk and a fun-loving approach. Mostly, we answer StrengthsFinder 2.0 questions (also known as CliftonStrengths). And often people send in questions about StrengthsFinders, StrengthFinders, StrengthFinder, and all sorts of mis-spellings. Despite the difficulty with the word, the content all points to Strengths Based Development and leadership using StrengthsFinder with your team. In addition: here are some hot topic areas covered by audience questions so far: Getting promoted; discovering your strengths; differentiating yourself; coaching and feedback; marketing, branding, and promoting yourself; getting unstuck; developing your direct reports; noticing what works on your team; connecting and networking; personal leadership; politics and perceptions at the office; getting viewed as an A player; building trust and influence at work or in your industry; being a people-leader that you want to be, even when you're short on time; how to get your creative mojo back; understanding how your EQ (emotional intelligence) is more important than your IQ at work; stuff you didn't learn in business school that's hurting your career; getting unstuck and un-trapped; and being a better leader.
