More than knowing about yourself, the real power is in what you do with what you know about yourself. Many people take assessments to gain insight on their core characteristics. Imagine an assessment that not only brings your core characteristics to your attention but points you in a direction of where you can take action and test your new insights. Today, we are debriefing the PathwayU Calling Assessment.
Ron Sweetman is a businessman who found success early in his career and now coaches business leaders. He is a lifetime entrepreneur who is good at noticing opportunities. After serving as a police officer, he entered the telecommunications industry where he was a multimillion-dollar producer for several companies. Then, after a 20-year career in the technology and sales space, he started his own coaching and consulting business to help entrepreneurs scale their businesses. In addition, Ron served in leadership positions at his church and in Man the Mirror Ministries.
Ron took the PathwayU Assessment and is here to talk about his findings. He starts by giving his background story, then shares why the insights he discovered add more clarity to how he shows up in his Life Calling. The assessment helped Ron be able to communicate his skills and interests. He even jokes that the assessment describes his strengths and personality more concisely than what he learned about himself working professionally for 20 years.
Listen to this discussion on how the PathwayU Assessment can provide insight and direction. No matter how self-aware someone claims to be, they’re stuck in a loop unless their actions forge a new path. This assessment gets people out of a loop by using predictive science to suggest various pathways to live out your calling. Such an assessment is meant to help people experience more meaning, purpose, and joy in life and work.
The PathwayU Assessment highlights interests, personality, values, and workplace preferences. All four categories are touched on in this episode, and specifically spoken about through the lens of Ron’s experience for context. Deeper knowledge of your strengths is a discovery process, and that process is a part of today’s conversation.
