The literature is replete with evidence about the power of strengths use to impact individuals and organizations—their engagement, performance, productivity, and teamwork, to name a few (see Unleashing Performance white paper for sources). But can Strengths Strategy® replicate those results? Our customers say so! Listen to a few client voices, who speak to the changes in their lives, as a result of experiencing the powerful impact of Strengths Strategy’s whole-person, experiential, transformational learning:
“Our Strengths Strategy training and coaching experiences increased our team’s functioning by over 90% over the past year! We are communicating better, understanding each other better, and are functioning like a real team thanks to the growth we have achieved together in understanding and applying our strengths.” (Grant Lindell, First United Bank Michigan)
“My strengths discovery coaching experience has helped me double my business in four months, as I have leveraged my strengths with intention. I now understand exactly what my strengths are and how to use them!” (Kathleen Blanc, Entrepreneur)
“Strengths Strategy Discovery was both energizing and eye opening. It left me really understanding how I function, as well as feeling increased clarity about how my team members operate as well. It has led to unprecedented growth in our leadership team, as we have applied what we learned together. We are really using our strengths to increase our performance and deliver results!” (Liz Liska, Director, Phoenix Health Plan).
Last week, in a final coaching interview with a leader from a prominent organization in North Dakota, I invited him to share with me what is different for him and his team today, as compared to a year ago when we started working together. The first thing he said was, “After our Strengths Strategy training, we had the best year financially we’ve ever had! In fact, we saw a 100% improvement in our financial operations!” He was so enthusiastic about the changes in his organization’s bottom-line and the way his team is functioning, he just exploded with excitement around it, and the way things have shifted.
Now not everyone will see a 100% improvement in their bottom-line, but we know that if we can combine a steady, slow, integrated approach that includes both classroom learning events, exploratory tools, and revelatory coaching experiences, we WILL see powerful change!
