Flew to Shanghai China from Singapore for a StrengthsFinder leadership Workshop done in Chinese by Victor Seet

Flew to #Shanghai #China from #Singapore for a #StrengthsFinder #leadership #Workshop done in #Chinese by Victor Seet @Victor_seet

During the 2 days, we were able to impact the CEO of Remy Cointreau (Greater China) and his management team. It was a privilege to have 2 full days talking about how to apply StrengthsFinder with this dynamic team

Personally, the differences between doing a StrengthsFinder Workshop in English and in Chinese is the analogies and pictorial examples that the Chinese cultural is so familiar with. In China, they often use idioms to try to explain a concept. So when it comes to discussing StrengthsFinder concept like talent, strengths, basement & balcony, it was often peppered with idioms and analogies

And besides the StrengthsFinder Workshop, we definitely enjoyed the food! We are grateful to be treated by Remy Cointreau with great lunches during the 2 days for StrengthsFinder leadership Workshop

Looking forward to going back to Shanghai China to do more StrengthsFinder Workshops and coaching and impacting a small percentage of the 1 billion Chinese people

#Singapore #StrengthsFinder Summit gratitude note from Chau of Vietnam 

 I got a note from a delegate from our recent ASEAN Strengths Education Summit 

 Dear Mr Victor and Mr Jason, I appreciate what you did for the younger generation and it is making a deep impact to all of us. What you started will continue on and nurture our strengths in order to succeed in life  

 Reading this note reminds me of StrengthsFinder theme #developer. Better explained by the definition 

 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 

 You see the potential in others. Very often, in fact, potential is all you see. In your view no individual is fully formed. On the contrary, each individual is a work in progress, alive with possibilities. And you are drawn toward people for this very reason. When you interact with others, your goal is to help them experience success. You look for ways to challenge them 

 You devise interesting experiences that can stretch them and help them grow. And all the while you are on the lookout for the signs of growth — a new behavior learned or modified, a slight improvement in a skill, a glimpse of excellence or of “flow” where previously there were only halting steps. For you these small increments — invisible to some — are clear signs of potential being realized. These signs of growth in others are your fuel. They bring you strength and satisfaction

In #Singapore & the world, we all have been a #StrengthsFinder #maximizer at one point in time 

 I think most of us have been through this situation; with very little resources, you need to accomplish the impossible  

 Maximizer is not just about bringing something from good to great, it’s also about making the best of the limited resources that you might have 

 Your ability to creatively use what is given to your advantage. To make a seemingly hopeless situation into something that is closer to great 

 As the StrengthsFinder definition of Maximizer puts it - You don’t want to spend your life bemoaning what you lack. Rather, you want to capitalize on the gifts with which you are blessed. It’s more fun. It’s more productive. And, counterintuitively, it is more demanding

#StrengthsFinder #ideation at Radin Mas School #Singapore 

 Was doing a full day workshop for 80 teachers and found this interesting board that Victor Seet pointed out to me which says: We make a mark our with ideas 

 That’s sounds like a mantra for all those people gifted with ideation. Ideas comes naturally and sometimes in waterfalls of rainbow creativity. We thrive, drinking on the waters of freedom and playing outside the box of normality 

 A blank canvas is almost shouting out to us to pen down our ideas and sketch out the impossible. When I first did StrengthsFinder some 10 years ago, the ideation talent theme helped me to understand my compulsion toward poetry, plays, song writing and even inventions. Burning through moleskines with a gasoline-filled fountain pen. Sparking many random thoughts on almost everything that flies into my mind 

 Needless to say, ideation is my number 1 StrengthsFinder talent theme 

 Best described by the StrengthsFinder definition of ideation: You are fascinated by ideas. What is an idea? An idea is a concept, the best explanation of the most events. You are delighted when you discover beneath the complex surface an elegantly simple concept to explain why things are the way they are. An idea is a connection. Yours is the kind of mind that is always looking for connections, and so you are intrigued when seemingly disparate phenomena can be linked by an obscure connection. An idea is a new perspective on familiar challenges. You revel in taking the world we all know and turning it around so we can view it from a strange but strangely enlightening angle. You love all these ideas because they are profound, because they are novel, because they are clarifying, because they are contrary, because they are bizarre.

#StrengthsFinder Class in NUS Business School (#Singapore) 

 Sitting on the NUS Business School’s expert panel for StrengthsFinder is indeed an honour. I get to interact with highly motivated and successful individuals from Asia that go through their school doors for deeper & greater business insight 

 In this class, I shared about a topic that I am extremely passionate about - StrengthsFinder. Unpacking their top 5 talents themes and sharing how they could make it into a strength 

 Business is a lot about understanding how your team works best, how they can be most productive and contribute in their most unique way. When individuals in the team can confidently say that they use their strengths every day at work, you’re setting them up for both team and organisation success  

 My favourite testimonial is from an ASEAN government official - Jason is very good. I learned so much from him. I would like to recommend him to EVERYBODY 

 So… if you are part of his ‘Everybody’, feel free to contact me and I’ll be happy to help you unleash your talents into strengths

Enjoyable time doing a #StrengthsFinder #workshop in cooling #HongKong & not missing hot #Singapore 

 Some testimonials given to us 

 Using StrengthsFinder, I am able to understand my team better and work with less conflicts 

 Now I know my StrengthsFinder talents and how they can be practically applied at work 

 I can grow my StrengthsFinder talents from infancy to maturity 

 I now know myself and why I do certain things at work. It is due to my top 5 StrengthsFinder talents  

 When we read the impact we have after our 2 day foundation StrengthsFinder Workshop, it reminds us why we are so passionate in the work we do. And when we were told that our overall ratings are a lot higher than any other workshop they have experienced, it pushes us towards giving greater quality to our clients 

 Be it in leadership development, team building / bonding or just helping each team understand the importance of identifying each individual’s strengths; we take great effort to make sure it is always our best

From #Singapore to #HongKong! Doing a #Corporate #StrengthsFinder #workshop for an MNC 

 It’s great to be back in HongKong to do our 2 day signature ‘K.A.L.P Strengths System™’ for a MNC. I personally have lost track of the number of StrengthsFinder Workshops we have done for our client. Definitely a good sign 

 I like to believe that one of the strongest reasons why a client keeps calling us back is because of the high level of quality we demand from ourselves 

 When we conduct a StrengthsFinder workshop, we are confident in receiving a rating that is above 8 out of 10. We hold this high expectation of quality independent of training location. Be it in Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Shanghai or India 

 I’m excited to spend the next 2 days sharing about how their team can improve engagement, learn leadership, understand individual and team strengths - all using our own StrengthsFinder-based framework

#StrengthsFinder workshop for Johnson & Johnson #Singapore  

 We enjoy working with companies that are committed to great work! Johnson & Johnson SIngapore is a brand that we think of fondly while growing up. I especially remember the brilliant ‘no tears’ shampoo for kids. You start to wonder why people make shampoo that hurt the eyes in the first place 

 After completing quite a few StrengthsFinder Workshops & trainings for them, we believe that they are poised to experience some awesome benefits. StrengthsFinder benefits like greater team synergy, a new level of respect and honor for others and a paradigm shift in how to 'catch people doing right(strengths)’ rather than focusing on improvement areas  

 The conversations that their teams had during the StrengthsFinder training was both rich and meaningful. We look forward to impacting Johnson & Johnson in a way that can be felt organization-wide 
  
Starting with the leadership, followed by the management and down to the frontline that impact the clients directly

 So when we came out with the ‘basic’ range of #StrengthsTees, we liked how simple it was. 

 Now we pushed that envelop once again, and present our 'emphasis’ range.

Gallup CEO Jim Clifton with StrengthsFinder coaches in Singapore (StrengthsTee)
#Gallup CEO with #StrengthsFinder coaches in #Singapore   

 We have the honor of meeting Jim Clifton, CEO of Gallup, on Monday and we gave him the #Activator #strengthstees as a gift from Strengths School.  

 One quote from Jim that resonated with us: 
“My dad (Don Clifton, creator of the StrengthsFinder tool) mentioned to me "imagine the conversations that people can have around their strengths!”  

 Jim shared the Strengths Movement was activated globally by the creation of the Strengths coaches community. While StrengthsFinder existed for many years, the Strengths Movement exploded when the coaching community was set up. He shared compellingly that the most powerful way to activate people’s talents is not through the person’s results but through the conversations. The coaches thus become the catalysts in the Strengths Movement because of the conversations they facilitate. 

 The quote is a powerful statement about coaching and that is a key reason that explains Strengths School’s existence. We facilitate the rich conversations that revolve around what is right with people. 

 Jim Clifton truly activated our hearts and further empower us to live out our vision - “Seeing every generation live out their full potential!”  

 A Big Thanks to Jim!

Bill likes #StrengthsFinder. Hope for more Bills in #Singapore that like StrengthsFinder 

 There isn’t many things that are as impactful as a meme. It is basically a “funny” advertisement. Just that the only thing you’re actually selling, is the ridiculous humour that makes the world a little more joyful 

 After seeing so many hilarious #BeLikeBill memes, I decided to take a go at my love for memes. I enjoy it because it is a combination of copywriting, advertising, design and humour that has to be mixed in just the right amounts to create impact 

 What helps us definitely the StrengthsFinder talent of #Positivity which is in my top 10. It is something that I have been investing in all these years. Following the StrengthsFinder formula 

 TALENT X INVESTMENT (skill, knowledge, time) = STRENGTH 

 I do feel that my talent of Positivity is being productively applied in office, at work and during the many StrengthsFinder Workshop that I conduct 

 As defined best by StrengthsFinder Positivity: Somehow you can’t quite escape your conviction that it is good to be alive, that work can be fun, and that no matter what the setbacks, one must never lose one’s sense of humor 

 The genius of Positivity talents is found in your positive emotional impact. Simply stated, everyone feels better about life when you are around

#StrengthsFinder #Arranger of #Sharpie for upcoming workshops in #Singapore  

 Every now and then, our sharpies used for the “Strengths Art Wall” needs to be replenished. And just looking at the different colours available, it somehow makes the participants feel that the StrengthsFinder workshop is that much more fun! *Not like it wasn’t before 

 Our team is filled with people that really are so talented in organizing the different moving parts that make a workshop a great success for the clients. Their talents of Responsibility, Restorative and Arranger contribute in a great way. And when clients see the professionalism and seamlessness of flow, the real hard work is all behind the scenes 

 As for all the arrangers out there! To help you make sense of this wonderful talent, the StrengthsFinder definition of Arranger 

 You are a conductor. When faced with a complex situation involving many factors, you enjoy managing all of the variables, aligning and realigning them until you are sure you have arranged them in the most productive configuration possible. In your mind there is nothing special about what you are doing. You are simply trying to figure out the best way to get things done. But others, lacking this StrengthsFinder theme, will be in awe of your ability. “How can you keep so many things in your head at once?” they will ask. “How can you stay so flexible, so willing to shelve well-laid plans in favor of some brand-new configuration that has just occurred to you?” But you cannot imagine behaving in any other way. You are a shining example of effective flexibility, whether you are changing travel schedules at the last minute because a better fare has popped up or mulling over just the right combination of people and resources to accomplish a new project 

 The genius of Arranger talents lies in your ability to orchestrate people and resources for maximum effectiveness

#StrengthsFinder philosophy in #Singapore schools  

 My son just went to Primary 1 and every parent was given an activity book by the Ministry of Education Singapore (MOE) 

 One of the activities to do with your kid is to find out what they are good at  

 Titled: ‘What they are good at’ - Children need a little help discovering their strengths and what their positive qualities are. Let your child know what you appreciate about them. So I’ll do it here  

 Dear Caden, I think you are great at coming up with stories of animals that are super interesting and exciting. I appreciate how you are able to creatively come up with hybrid animals (T-Rex head, crocodile body, tiger legs) that shows your rich and wonderful imagination. Love Papa  

 One day when he has Instagram (if it’s still cool) he can see this post  

 If I can parallel this father-son relationship to a manager-staff one, the people around you at work would also “need a little help discovering their strengths and what their positive qualities are”. That’s why I love what I do. When I do a StrengthsFinder Workshop for an organization, we get to have these rich conversations on what your talents and strengths are. And how these are so important in the team’s success  

 Building upon their top 5 strengths, we get to understand deeply how individuals in your team view the world, what kind of leadership style they are most inclined to and how to maximize it for performance  

 It’s heartening to know that the Singapore education system is in putting tangible steps to discover our children’s strengths

Did the very last #StrengthsFinder #workshop for #Singapore Tourism Board’s division for the year 2015 

 Was a great time of team-bonding and getting to understand each other on a deeper level. I shared about leadership and the importance of knowing your own strengths and the strengths of your team. Effective leaders know how to leverage and maximizer the people’s unique talents. They draw out what is already inside rather than try to put it something that is not 

 Their director, Poh Chi Chuan, was a very fun person to be with! Being an Activator, he enjoys the frontal-all-out-assault and the excitement of the ‘CHARGE!’. Interesting thing is that his team was made up of many having the StrengthsFinder talents of Deliberative, Achiever, Responsibility (Executing Domain). All these strengths really complement his Activator and covers the blind spots needed in forming a great all rounded team  

 And when it comes to facilitating, I always love the way Charissa Ee @orangefridge is able to use her Connectedness to give the participants the big picture. Her Relator gives an awesome genuineness that is unique to her. The participants don’t just see a StrengthsFinder Coach, but rather they see a sincere friend. It is my blessing to have the opportunity to work with her in impacting the generations  

 For the Singapore Tourism Board team, by understanding the StrengthsFinder talents & philosophy, the team was able to be more aware of the different 'lens’ they all wear and how they unintentionally might impose them on others 

 But when they start look through other member’s lens and intentionally leverage their strengths, the more engaged the team would be! Overall it was a great StrengthsFinder team-building session and feedback was that they were all impacted profoundly and positively!  

 Looking forward in bringing Singapore Tourism Board members into a place where their strengths can be an unlimited source of motivation and therefore productivity

Doing #Singapore proud: #StrengthsFinder #Workshop for #ASEAN future #leaders  

 Shared about #leadership and how different each person’s leadership style actually is. Many fall into the trap of trying to be their greatest influence, or even their boss. That’s always a great idea at the start, but when you strive to express your own unique ‘flavor’ of leadership, things can get quite uncomfortable and we might even lose sight of our identity in the process 

 According to #Gallup and the StrengthsFinder framework, we should discover what really drives us and what our innate source of fulfillment really is. Then we can start to excel in an exponential gradient rather than a painful and gradual incline.  

 Many came to thank me for lifting their old paradigm and giving them a new one. One that starts from your own true & pure source of purpose and motivation - your strengths

#StrengthsFinder workshop for 50 top leaders at #Singapore’s #University - #NUS (National University of Singapore) 

 Managed to take a photo together with an amazing Strengths School™ Team of dedicated individuals whose mission was to positively and deeply impact the lives of these student leaders 

 We talked about leadership, team-building, creating a culture of respect for each unique individual and how they can better serve the student body at large starting from their StrengthsFinder talents  

 We had loads of fun during our ‘Game of LIFE’ segment with them and the debrief session was one of the richest and deepest that I’ve personally heard 

 There was a sharing I liked “I was aiming 'X’ in the 'Game of LIFE’ and when 'X’ was taken away, I couldn’t recover back. I question myself why I couldn’t recover back since it wasn’t that important to begin with”. And now reflecting back, he is questioning what are some of those 'Xs’ in real life for him 

 Sometimes the unimportant distractions in life have such a strong influence on how we live that we miss the important purpose in living who we were called to be  

 I hope these privileged adult leaders use the sessions of deep self-discovery to become better leaders. Leader that lead with their Strengths rather than try to be someone else
