We hope you are keeping well!
Everyone has talent, and with a strengths-based mindset, you can recognize the talent in each individual. That makes teamwork an enriching experience for you and your team. It is teams, not individuals, that achieve results — especially in the high-value work that takes creativity and complex analysis.
While teams with diverse talents, experiences and perspectives have great potential, they can also encounter obstacles and resistance. So how do leaders address those challenges? According our feature article, “Successful leaders strive to identify shared values and build change upon common ground. This means that managers need to not only evaluate technical skills, but also to clearly communicate their organization’s shared mission and hire people who will be inspired to dedicate their talents to it.”
Managers that hire people aligned with the company’s values benefit from hiring people who already want the same things. The authors state, “The difference between success and failure will not be in the formulation of job descriptions and compensation packages, but in the ability to articulate a higher purpose. That begins with a clear sense of shared mission and values.”
We coach our clients that are managers to gain confidence in themselves and lead their team by developing a strength-based mindset. We encourage them to articulate their values and evaluate how they align with their organization’s values and mission.
It’s meaningful to support them as they go through this process, growing personally and professionally.
