Invited as a keynote speaker for MGS Careers Festival 2017 #StrengthsFinder

The last time I was in MGS was in Sec 2 when 4 of us from ACS Prefectorial Board went over to MGS for their Prefect's Investiture. If I recall correctly, there were elements of a camp fire, guitar and there might have been the song 'Stand by Me' that we sang

Shared wth the girls about finding their talents and how that can bring them closer to their life's calling. Great that they were able to come up with their own examples when it came to searching for clues to their innate talents

All the best to the entire Sec 4 cohort in one of the most stressful times in a Singapore student's life. You are more than your grades!

And to the class won the StrengthsFinder 2.0 book, whoever that lucky girl is, I'd love to hear what your StrengthsFinder top 5 are!

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!

• • To have the opportunity to impact an entire cohort in a school is such a privilege. For the students to know what they are gifted in at such a young age can be very powerful for their self-esteem and self-worth. • • We used the 'Strengths Explorer' framework to ignite the potential in each student and I could see the beginnings of a transformation over these 2 days. • • We managed to impact this school together with a team of Gallup-Certified StrengthsFinder Coaches and Strengths Coaches. I could see everyone of us taking on this opportunity with the highest levels of passion and excellence. • • I am grateful and proud of so many like-minded passionate individuals in the team that have put their heart into fulfilling the Strengths School vision of "Seeing every generation live out their full potential" • • #GallupStrengthsFinder #CliftonStrengths #StrengthsQuest #StrengthsSchool #Gallup #StrengthsFinderSG #HumanResource #SelfImprovement #SelfDevelopment #TeamBuilding #StrengthsCoach #ProfessionalDevelopment #StrengthsFinderCoach #CoachJasonHo

• 34 talents mean that we are as diverse as can be.

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! • •

This is one man that I really enjoy working with. Coming from a teaching background himself, he is well versed with diverse acronyms and teacher-lingo. His experience helps us bridge the gap when it comes to transforming schools into a strengths-based organisation. • •

Using his Learner, Intellection and Analytical, he provides insightful depth during tough decision-making calls. I admire his passion for students and he is one that truly exemplifies our vision of "Seeing every generation live out their full potential". • •

Together with the team, we impacted 71 school leaders for the entire day using the strengths-based approach of leadership. Madelia, a Gallup-Certified StrengthsFinder Coach, shared with the student leaders about her own experiences when she was once a Head Prefect Councillor. I can tell that the students could see her passion for transforming their lives, especially during smaller group discussions where she starts to coach them on a their unique strengths.

I'm impressed by Madelia's ability to lead the student group with high levels of student engagement. The teacher in-charge liked how we conducted the workshop so much, that she was asking details about how we could impact an entire cohort of students using this strengths-based approach next year! Looking forward to a more meaningful and impactful 2017!

What a way to spend the Sat where we at Strengths School™ have the privilege and opportunity to impact Singapore's future leaders to get their strengths game on!

StrengthsFinder Developer: Don’t judge a book by its cover; neither an abalone. Developers have a great talent in seeing the beauty inside a person while others might not. They see the subtle shimmering “mother of PEARLtential” in every person.

Did some research and found that abalones can also produce pearls, though darker compared to their more famous cousins the oysters. Developers have copious amounts of patience! Similar kind of patience you would need for the entire process of coating a particle till it becomes a pearl. 
This kind of abalone can be found in Hainan and served in their many restaurants. I haven’t seen any in Singapore though so will be looking out for it.

(Page 2 of 2) Let’s examine some definitions:

Talent:  Talents are naturally recurring patterns of thought, feeling, or behavior that can be productively applied. (Gallup) ‘Practice’ or Investment:  Time spent practicing, developing your skills, and building your knowledge base (Gallup) 'Perfect’ or Strength:  the ability to consistently provide near-perfect performance in a specific activity (Gallup)

Using the Strengths formula:
Talent X Investment = Strength

Let’s say talent is represented numerically:
1 = a person who is NOT talented
1,000 = a person who IS talented

To simplify this, let me give an analogy. So in the field of soccer where I will compare Cristiano Rinaldo and myself. Both of us have the opportunity and free time to practice soccer for 10,000 hours. 
Using the strengths formula above:

Jason Ho:
1 x 10,000 hours = 10,000 result

Cristiano Rinaldo:
1,000 x 10,000 hours = 10,000,000 result

For me to reach Rinaldo’s standard, I would have to spend an additional 9,990,000 or 9.9 million hours of practice in the field. Assuming that I practice for 10 hours a day (8am to 6pm with no lunch nor toilet breaks and no football club supporting my income) I would need 999,900 days or 2,736 years to reach his level of 'Perfect’ (success) results. 
By understanding the different results, there should be a consideration of talent involved - how we naturally think, feel and behave. This way, we can be more targeted toward achieving the level of excellence and success in a more effective and efficient manner. Where Rinaldo should continue leveraging on his talent and practice practice practice. While I find an area where I have a 1,000 units of talent and start practicing.

I’ll have a lot more success in the latter and not to mention a more fulfilling journey. 
In the end, I feel the quote should look more like this: “Practice using Strengths, makes Perfect” (Page 2 of 2)
