The Definitive Guide to busting #StrengthsFinder #Myths from #Singapore and around the world
IMG_3069.PNG

Having consulted for numerous leaders and conducting workshops for thousands of participants, there are some recurring misconceptions about StrengthsFinder that I would like to address. I have come up with a comprehensive resource to help anyone who is on this strengths journey - StrengthsFinder MythBusters: The Definitive Guide

When I tried searching for any resource available when it came to mythbusting, I found pocket here and there but nothing comprehensive enough for me. So I decided to do what any die-hard StrengthsFinder coach would do... come up with what I feel is the most comprehensive guide (to date) in understanding the myths there are about the StrengthsFinder paradigm

You would have probably heard a few people say things like "Oh StrengthsFinder is all about focusing on strengths and ignoring weaknesses". Or things like - I don't have those leadership strengths, that's why I can't lead

If you are one of those people who might have thought those statements to be true, I invite you to dive into 12 myths about StrengthsFinder that need busting. You can find the guide over at StrengthsSchool.com

Singapore StrengthsFinder coach Jason Ho on self-discovery, self-awareness followed by self-actualization

 #Singapore #StrengthsFinder #CoachJasonHo #quote on self-discovery, self-awareness follow by self-actualization (all sounds very self-ish, but let me explain)

Self-discovery is defined by Cambridge as "the process of learning about yourself and your beliefs" and by Oxford as "The process of acquiring insight into one's own character". Both emphasie on the process of learning.

When I give StrengthsFinder training or coaching to participants in their late 50s or 60s, I get pleasantly surprised whenever I hear them say "I never knew that was called a talent".

Some are aware acutely aware of their strengths while others might be totally in the dark about it.

The great thing about how I use StrengthsFinder in my role as a coach is that its pleasantly versatile.

Wherever you are on your self-discovery journey, whether you are snorkling on the coral reef of your last week's successes, or diving deep into the abyss of your core character, you can be surprised when you receive your top 5 StrengthsFinder results.

Another I would put it: "Our search for inner talent is like exploring the deep sea. We are surprised by the very wonders that have been there for ages"

So what are you waiting for? Start exploring.

Pitched StrengthsFinder to Uber at their Singapore office on MapleTree Anson along Anson Road

Pitched #StrengthsFinder to #Uber at their #Singapore office on Mapletree Anson along Anson Road

Pitched #StrengthsFinder to #Uber at their #Singapore office on Mapletree Anson along Anson Road. And you definitely make an educated guess the mode of transport I decided to take - I 'Grabbed' an UBER

My purpose was actually to pitch to them. And when it comes to pitching about using StrengthsFinder for strengths-based Leadership, strengths-based team-building or even leadership executive coaching, I personally don't feel that I'm doing a sale, or closing a deal. For me, it's more like sharing a deep pasion I have for how a 'strengths paradigm' can really impact the levels of fulfilment in each participant's life. And this is encompassed by THEEE vision - "Seeing every generation live out their full potential"

If one of the clues to talent is when 'time stands still', then sharing about strengths to anyone is my personal talent.


When I stepped out of the 1.5 hour meeting, it feels to me like a 5 minute chat! And I could share a lot more about the benefits of StrengthsFinder to my client!

I'm going to be conducting the upcoming workshop for Uber next week and I am definitely look forward to making the session UBERexciting, UBERfruitful and UBERamazing!

Flying back to #Singapore after a #StrengthsFinder #Leadership #Workshop and having another full day of StrengthsFinder Leadership workshop tomorrow. It has been a super busy month and its going to get busier! • •

This MNC regional team was a great bunch of participants and both Victor and I really enjoyed ourselves conducting this workshop at LiJiang China. It was a diverse representation of participants from the region: Japan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, Czechoslovakia, Shanghai and BeiJing China. • •

After the StrengthsFinder workshop, we did a session of Strengths-based consultancy/ coaching for the leader. Change in any organization is an uphill task. So changing from the normal weakness/ AFI mindset to a strengths paradigm requires changes to the very DNA of leadership. • •

Its a challenging but rewarding journey this team is on and we will be there to support them!• •

It was an awesome session to impacting the creatives. Interesting to see how they have been expressing their unique strengths in areas like graphic design, jewellery and typography. • •

Being in the creative, there is also a need to understand the 4 domains - Executing, Influencing, Relationship Building & Strategic Thinking. We are all skewed in our dominance and it is important to have a system to cover those blindspot. • • One way would be to "sub-it-out" and pay someone to do those things that really drain you. It could be accounts, invoicing, packaging deliveries etc. The other way would be Partnerships. The ideal partnerships would be that the person enjoys the very things that you dislike doing. The more we do the things that we enjoy doing, the better. And chances are, we would be using what we are gifted in - our strengths. • •

Right after coming back from #HongKong early this morning, I headed for another StrengthsFinder Workshop. It wasn't the usual corporate client profile though, it was for a collective group of artists and designers (professions that I always enjoyed being around!). This group was made up of was Joanne's friends and held over at theletterjsupply studio along Seah Street. • •

Together with Gallup-Certified StrengthsFinder Coach Tan Meiling, we shared how strengths can help us understand ourselves and what we are deeply passionate in. Also, the very things that energize us would most likely be what we can excel in 'effortlessly'. • •

Enjoyed catching up with you Joanne! Love your #Positivity and #Individualization. I see it in all the art and workshops you do! • •
