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

While conducting #StrengthsFinder #Leadership #workshops in #Singapore #HongKong or #Shanghai, I sometimes get asked what is the crux participants should take away.

If I were to summarise it in 3 words #DiscoverYourBest

What I aim to do in the short half-day or full day StrengthsFinder workshop, is to bring you, the participant, face to face with the awareness that you have amazing talents that you might not have known about. Or if you did have an inclination, you now are equipped with an arsenal of empowering words to describe that very strength.

As I am preparing for a full day workshop tomorrow for the Ministry of Education (MOE), I wanted to focus back on why we at Strengths School exist.

And in its essence, it is to journey with each participant; digging deeper into the mountain of talent. To discover the treasures that were always there.

• 34 talents mean that we are as diverse as can be. With the odds that someone having the same top 5 StrengthsFinder talents as you in the same order being 1 in 33 million! • • Loved the 2 days of talking about how diverse we are as a team.

#Singapore - #StrengthsFinder #Achiever likes to get things done!

One of the phrases that you might hear someone with Achiever in their top 5 talent themes saying to their team members.

• • "Let's get things done."


• • StrengthsFinder Achiever enjoys ticking things off their lists. They enjoy completing tasks at hand and might say the phrase above to encourage and motivate their team members.

• • I'll be doing a series called #StrengthsFinderPhrases for the benefit of the community. You can hear clues to what your friends' strengths might be if you hear them saying those phrases.

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!• •

Sometimes, when you share about how strengths can change the way we work & live, the participants learn. There are other times when it REALLY sinks deep and they get how powerful these strengths-based conversations can be. This is one of those times! • •

We had very rich conversations on how to have an open dialogue with your superiors and how to balance both the need to achieve and the need to engage every team member. I very much enjoyed those very weighty & somewhat sensitive conversations as it makes my work that much more meaningful. • •

 

I trust that they now understand more about what makes them awesome and how the team can be at their best every day! • • #GallupStrengthsFinder #CliftonStrengths #StrengthsQuest #StrengthsSchool #Gallup #StrengthsFinderSG #HumanResource #SelfImprovement #SelfDevelopment #TeamBuilding #StrengthsCoach #Leadership #ProfessionalDevelopment #StrengthsFinderCoach #CoachJasonHo

This time I'm flying with Gallup-Certified StrengthsFinder Coach @GideonRen to do 2 full days of StrengthsFinder training for an MNC. Victor Seet just came back yesterday from Shanghai after 2 full days of training their China team. It's now our turn to fly to HongKong to train the team there. • •

Looking forward to great food and great people over at Hong Kong. And spending almost 3 days of #Relator time with Gideon who has Relator at No.1. I'm sure it will be super energizing for both of us (my Relator is at No.3). • •

I'm excited that I'll be talking about strengths for 2 full days! Its going to be an empowering time for the participants! • •

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". • •

PS: Love our #StrengthsExplorer tees! • •

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!

When the 3rd generation of ‘StrengthsFinder Jedi’ that bears the SkyWalker-Clifton name requests something, you can be sure that his “Command” for a Command StrengthsTee is taken with DEFCON 1 urgency. Strengths School sent over a Command #StrengthsTee right after giving #JimClifton an #Activator StrengthsTee when he visited Singapore

The card reads: Jason, thank you so much for that wonderful shirt. There is no better way to show your strengths than to wear them across your chest. Keep soaring with your strengths

We at Strengths School are grateful for what seems like a relic in this day and age. Jon Clifton, we are encouraged to carry on this passion and purpose of
Seeing every generation live out their full potential

#StrengthsFinder #Developer at #Singapore #NightFestival 


If people were liken to incomplete buildings that are a work-in-progress, Developers would totally enjoy being part of that journey.

Kind of like these little Eskimos that were “building” the wall of the National Museum.

They really look like they are having fun! In many ways Developers do derive a huge amount of purpose and fulfillment in building people’s “buildings”. They have a genuine care and concern for the growth of people around them. And once they see a little progress, they can’t wait to give encouragement to motivate others up another notch.

Like how the definition of StrengthsFinder Developer puts it: People exceptionally talented in the Developer StrengthsFinder theme recognize and cultivate the potential in others. They spot the signs of each small improvement and derive satisfaction from evidence of progress.

I have been on the nurturing end of Developers before and I must say that they have a unique patience towards growth that is quite enchanting.

Conducted a #StrengthsFinder workshop in #India and had an awesome time with the participants of an MNC. They learnt about their team’s #strengths and how to leverage it to #IncreaseProductivity at work. In this StrengthsFinder workshop, they also learnt how to immediately apply their strengths to motivate both their team members and themselves towards #PeakPerformance. Looking forward to the next 2 full-day session in #HongKong and then back to India. Thankful that these countries are all within close proximity to #Singapore my home. And by the way, I love #IndianFood! I somehow feel that the number of spices that is in the food is an #Ideation chef’s dream. #StrengthsQuest #StrengthsSchool

#StrengthsFinder #command #strength enjoys the notion of control. People with Command tend to instinctively have an #ImTakingCharge attitude when it comes to situations and especially in crisis. They are cool, calm and collected when the surrounding atmosphere is heated, hot getting hotter. When the crowd wants someone to step up and take control, people with command are happy to rise above. I saw this on the wall and they had a whole series of fantastic one-liners that I definitely want to share! #strengthsquest #StrengthsSchool #singapore
