Episode 53: Ferris Bueller was an Influencer
I was watching the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off recently and I thought to myself that Ferris is probably strong in the CliftonStrengths domain: Influencing. The Influencing domain is all about the ability to move people to take action. Helping other people’s voices get heard. The entire movie is based on Ferris’s ability to get people to take action. Whether it’s to skip the day at school, rally kids around a cause (saving Ferris because they think he’s sick), and doing out-of-their-comfort-zone things that stretch those closest to him. I’ve coached people In the online entrepreneurial space who lead with the Influencing domain. And it’s amazing how they’re able to influence their clients to take action. To do things they’ve never done before. If you know that that’s your superpower, you’re going to build your business differently. You’re going to look for a certain type of client who needs you to help them move forward, to take action. You’re going to care about your client’s success, but you’re okay not being best friends with them. You do want people to like you, so you’ll be sure not to ruin any bridges, but that’s also how you get people to buy in to making change - by inspiring them. Now, not all business owners high in Influencing behave or show up in the same way. Each of us is super unique in our strengths. Which means that it’s up to you to find out how you inspire people to move forward.

Episode 51: Which one are you? The Four Domains
Has anyone ever asked you for tips on how to do something and you couldn’t believe they were asking you? There’s a reason for that. You’re extremely good at something that they’re not and they recognize it. The key is to understand how you think, feel, and behave differently than others and then build your business and life around that. This episode discusses the four areas in which you might think, feel and behave. I hope you’ll recognize yourself in one of them.

Episode 49: What does overwhelm have to do with strengths?
If you struggle with overwhelm, there’s a reason why. And it isn’t what you might think. Ever hear that cliche, “Your greatest strength is your greatest weakness”? It’s true.

Check out this week’s podcast episode to learn what overwhelm has to do with strengths.

Episode 48: How do I know which things to hire out?
Having a business isn’t always the most fun. Especially when it comes to doing those tasks that only you the owner can do until you hire it out. So when you’re ready to hire things out how do you know which things to hand over? It starts with your strengths. You don’t want to hire someone who can do all the things you can. You want to hire someone who’s amazing at the things you’re not. Check out this week’s podcast episode to learn how knowing your strengths can help you know what to hire out.

Episode 47: How your strengths help you know what type of coaching business to have.
You’ve decided to be a coach. Now it’s time to decide what type of coaching business to have. Given how many coaches and coaching businesses are out there, how do you decide what to do? Who do you help? How do you help? How long do you help them for? What type of service do you offer? You can shave months, even years, off the beginning stages of your business growth by building your client base and business services around your unique strengths. It’s possible. If you have a business that’s working for you, but you don’t know the magic behind what’s working and why, imagine what would happen if you did.

Episode 44: What can I expect when working with you?

Episode 43: Are my strengths fixed or do they change from year to year?

Episode 42: What if I’m told that what I don’t like doing is my superpower?
There are lots of questions I get asked when it comes to what I do and one of them was, “What if I’m told that the thing I don’t like doing is my superpower?” I wouldn’t want to meet with a coach if I was going to be encouraged to keep doing the very thing I didn’t like doing! That’s be awful! There’s a difference between being good at something naturally and having learned something and done it over and over to the point where you know how to do it really well. But just because you know how to do something really well and you paid lots of money to learn it (college, grad school, certifications) doesn’t mean that that’s your superpower. You just learned how to do something and can do it. Your superpower you can do anytime, with a level of excellence, ease, energy and enjoyment and nothing you don’t like doing can compare to it. Those are the clues to knowing what your superpower is. If you’re wondering if you’re building the right business for you, sign up to take my free quiz. Answering these 11 questions could be a game changer.
