Strengths-Based Process: Leveraging Strengths for Success

We all have strengths – We all have weaknesses.

The common consensus is that we should improve our weaknesses to become more balanced and competent.  This misinformed belief leads people to become average. None of us are satisfied with average – there has to be another way to develop.

Yes, you need to be aware of your weaknesses and not allow them to inhibit your development.  Weaknesses need to be mitigated, but spending all of our time focusing on improving weaknesses is an exercise in futility.

We all have areas of weakness. There are several reasons for this and one reason is it is physically impossible to be perfect at everything. The best reason is that we do not mentally and physically enjoy doing the things we are weakest at doing and spend less time operating in those areas.  We avoid doing things that are unpleasant and we gravitate to doing the things that we enjoy the most. The things we enjoy doing the most become our strengths because we have more deliberate practice in these areas. Ultimately, we should concentrate on maximizing our strengths because we enjoy spending our energy and time focusing on these areas.

  • We have more to offer others when we express our strengths and cultivate our expertise.

Now that we have a mutual understanding on strengths and weaknesses; let me introduce you to the lever that enhances the strengths-based system.

There is an economic principle called competitive advantage.

It states that two competent people making two items each usually possess the ability to do one thing better than the other.  When each of them focuses on their strength – they can maximize their output in their best area.

Each person can produce more of one item when focused on doing only the thing they are best at doing instead of including their weaker skill. Each person has an abundance of one item and they need to fulfill the need provided by the item they did not create.

The key to unlocking the strength-based process is TRADE.

Trade creates wealth and Countries use this principle well.  Our civilization originated by using a bartering system which grew into a money system which is all based on the economic principle of competitive advantage. We as individuals can leverage this principle for our individual competitive advantage.

The prescription for implementation is:

  1. We need to identify our greatest strength.
  2. Develop this strength to be the best it can be.
  3. Find someone else who needs what we produce and has      something of importance that we are weak at producing.
  4. Trade services and create wealth for both parties.

A Win-Win Situation by leveraging the economic principle of Competitive Advantage for personal and professional development.

“Changing the Way the World Works”

There is Always a Solution

When all hope is lost there is still a solution.

There is never an end, but there is always a new beginning.

Are you willing to acknowledge alternatives and encounter the pain involved to travel the less traveled path?

Change is inevitable and accepting change is more difficult than change itself.

Identifying the solution is harder than proceeding.

The more opposition to change, the more pain involved in the process.

Accepting change provides satisfaction.

Let me leave you with a few chosen thoughts:

  1. If there is a will, there is a way.
  2. Nothing is impossible.
  3. It seems harder than it really is.
  4. When the going gets tough, the tough get going.
  5. Figuring out what to do is the hard part, doing it is the easy part.

The world is full of endless possibilities – riches to those that search and find the possibilities that are right for them.

Becoming a Coaching Client (Coachee)

The needed mindset of a successful coachee relies on 5 factors:

1. Openness to new experience.

2. Commitment to self-work.

3. Deep thinking for resolution.

4. Ability to deal with moments of discomfort.

5. A strong motivation to become more successful.

Becoming a first time coaching client is a new experience that from a distance can be intimidating and seem to be an uncomfortable venture that is less than desirable.

The coaching experience is quite the opposite and clients who have taken this venture usually retain a coach to assist their development concerning multiple issues throughout life.

The coaching engagement begins with a consultation between coach and potential client to understand situations, concerns, desires, goals, and to answer specific questions. Furthermore, the ground rules (i.e. meeting times, confidentiality, etc.) for the coaching engagement are discussed and agreed upon.

Following the initial consultation, a customized engagement is created for each individual coaching client with a focus on actionable goals, strategy creation, and actualizing achievement.

Not all coaching is created equal and finding the ideal coach who fits with your mission and life values is essential for enhanced overall success.

The coach-coachee relationship is a partnership that has a joint agreement to reach desired outcomes or goals. The coachee is required to commit to the hard work needed to implement and sustain positive change in life.

The coachee controls the information within the coaching relationship and the coach drives the pace and directional focus which is in the best interest of the coachee.

Trust and confidentiality is achieved and maintained by the coach throughout the engagement to enable the coachee to obtain a deeper understand of self, situation, and process that limit or enhance performance.

Coaching is about raising awareness and maximizing strengths within situations that maximize results and overall satisfaction. Avoiding problems and acknowledging behaviors are silent or lesser known enhancements that provide substantial benefits in most future situations.

Choices

We all have the power of choice. Choice is an essential gift. We all make impulsive choices based on emotions paired with poor judgment. The choices we made yesterday have led to our present situation. We cannot go back in time and change what we did or how we did it.

We cannot dwell on something that cannot be changed. We need to focus on our choices today and how they will impact tomorrow.

We need to build positive momentum moving forward. Regardless if the economy is holding you down or your friends betrayed your trust. We could blame anything and everything for our situation, but that won’t help us move forward with positive momentum. We need to cut the dead weight of blame, collect the essential pieces that are left with us today, and start making choices that will make tomorrow a better place.

What one thing could you do that will create something positive for you tomorrow?

What do you want to happen in your future?

I heard a story about: scared money doesn’t win and it reminded me of brilliant people who preach – Give Back, Pay it Forward, What goes around comes around, Reciprocity, Karma.

Tips:

Do favors for others that could do favors for you. When they say thank you, don’t say, “Don’t worry about it” or “No problem, anytime” [You’re discounting your favor].

You should instead say, “You would do the same for me”.

Try switching your language and watch the response. People have an inner need to repay favors because it makes us feel good. We want an opportunity to help back. Allow the people you take care of to take care of you too. Give and ye shall receive.

It’s human nature.
