Happy Independence Day!

The Detour is Over

Several years ago, an opportunity to further my education presented itself. I was all in. An opportunity through my employer, in cooperation with a local school with an amazing reputation? Yes, why not!? Between 2013 and 2014 I completed my Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Innovation Management. After the joyful day when I shook the hands of leaders from both organizations, I told myself, “this is it for now, I’m tired. I’m done for a while”.

Not too long after that joyful day, I was also promoted to a position with much more responsibility. I saw people around me going back to school, but I told myself it wasn’t right for me. I thought about going back to school quite a bit, but the timing and the programs never felt right, until now.

I’m back; the detour is over. Western Carolina offers such a great opportunity that seems to fit my personality and my needs. I have high hopes in the Masters of Entrepreneurship program. I am determined to fit the work around my already full schedule, I have hopes that other members of this program support one another, and I am ready to finish what I started back in 2013.

 

Strengths at Work

Disclaimer: This is not a paid product endorsement. I simply use this approach in my work and want to share.

You can tell by my blog title that I’m strengths obsessed. I have a deep belief in the potential of every individual.  People are happiest and most productive when they can do the things that energize them (strengths) vs. the things that drain them (weaknesses).  My love of coaching and helping others find their bliss is evident in the way I approach my work and in the way I lead my teams.

So I have to share with you the work of one of the best companies leading this movement: TMBC (The Marcus Buckingham Company). It’s one thing to believe in the potential of people, it’s another thing entirely to use evidence based research to back up the claim that concentrating on strengths leads to performance and engagement. Well, TMBC, does exactly that. They can prove that operating out of ones strengths at least once a day has a direct positive impact on both productivity and engagement.
