John Birrell-Levine
52:52

We actually see a big jump in culture change with the executive team buys in.

Was just listening to Season 6!!!
Holly Magnuson
58:16
Season 6 EXCELLENT
John Birrell-Levine
01:00:39
@holly - maybe the best season ever. Laughter, tears, warmth, love.
Holly Magnuson
01:02:12
@John I think you're right. It was so good!! It was a centering part of the 2020 crazy
Daryl Watkins
01:04:33
Q: Are specific strengths associated with embracing this as @Justin Douglas is talking about?
Justin Douglas
01:06:56
Very true, John! We have to be careful not to overevangelise as it can be a turn-off.
Steven Sanchez
01:07:29
“It’s not enough that management commit themselves to quality and productivity, they must know what it is they must do. Such a responsibility cannot be delegated..”. - W. Edwards Deming
michele yeager
01:08:09
Steven Sanchez - SO VERY TRUE!
John Birrell-Levine

Satya frowns on us trying to give kisses to people at work.
Daryl Watkins

John Birrell-Levine
01:09:33
@daryl - this is a tough one for me. in theory there is no correlation that I'm aware of. However, anecdotally I like to believe that Maximizer, Individualization are keys
Steven Sanchez
01:10:50
It also matters how the aggregate of strengths change the expression to build champions
Holly Magnuson
01:11:20
especially those of us dealing with IT people.. no "woo woo" strategy...
Holly Magnuson
01:11:56
Please note Jim lowercase woo not the Talent Woo.
Lenore Webb
01:14:13
I've noticed most of the Gallup event speakers have Maximizer in their Top 5. I wonder if that is specific to coaching itself or coaching strengths?
maghanhaggerty
01:14:51
@Lenore I hope not - Maximizer is #29 for me :)
Justin Douglas
01:15:42
I think that’s the beauty of it: we can pull the passion from all the different 34 talents… leading to the stories & experiences
sonny thaker
01:15:47
@Lenore Webb - I think all strengths can be used brilliantly in their own way(s) to produce whatever the person who holds them wishes. It’s more how they use them not what they are.
Justin Douglas
01:16:11
Yes, I agree, Sonny.
Holly Magnuson
01:16:11
@justin So true!!
Marianita Snodgrass
01:17:08
Q: What key points do you make with managers when you are trying to get them to “buy in?”
Justin Douglas
01:18:40
Just checked the profile of my best client champion: Positivity, Responsibility, Strategic, Relator, Communication [so that’s pretty spread: I don’t have her full34]
Robin Handler
01:18:58
Phil, so true. The other challenge is sustaining the strengths culture when the leadership at the school changes.
Steven Sanchez
01:19:19
Q: How can a bottom up culture change be translated to the “language of leadership”?
Daryl Watkins
01:19:20
Thanks @justin and @john
michele yeager
01:20:59
What is interesting for me, is our executives "made" us take the strengths test as they did. They don't embrace it, but I am ALL IN and find a lot of value in the knowledge as well as the culture. From listening to the conversation here, I feel I can tackle "it" (their lack of engagement) from many directions
Justin Douglas
01:21:00
Yes, ‘speed dating’ exercise is so fun - so revealing
Lenore Webb
01:21:25
I agree that any combination of strengths can be used I championing strengths - Individualization is my #1. Marina: I don't have enough direct experience with managers, but I was able to encourage a Dean to pay for strengths for his school's whole freshman class (500+) by having him take the assessment, reviewing his results with him and sharing how the workshop could be tailored to his population.
Robin Handler
01:21:44
Jim, what book?
Robin Handler
01:22:21
Thank you.
Justin Douglas
01:22:33
$50 if I remember correctly
Justin Douglas
01:22:44
(could be wrong!)
Mark Russell
01:22:53
I now heard that managers lead a conversation around starting with positive intent and then looking for cross team collaboration.
Robin Handler
01:23:00
Thank you, Justin
Mark Russell
01:24:27
I use CS as the foundation to build off then being able to execute their strategies.
Justin Douglas
01:26:02
Nice approach Kendra - thank you for sharing
Daryl Watkins
01:26:09
Paul, if I can dra that out, having a conversation around using Strengths in performance appraisal/development can be a useful way to build confidence
Holly Magnuson
01:27:27
Awesome Mark!
Antonia Milkop (STR, DEV, ACH, MAX, ARR)
01:28:21
the "hero effect"?!
maghanhaggerty
