38: Practical Strengths for Your Calling | Jo Self

podcast May 25, 2022

 

Strengths, which align with your innate talents, allow you to see multiple paths for living your calling.

Even in your free time, your strengths are influencing your behavior and choices. Today, we talk about Practical Strengths for your calling.

Jo Self is on a mission to ensure talent is not wasted, potential is...

10 Hot Topics for Strengths Coaching

Sometimes I get asked what happens in a Strengths coaching session (also known as a Strengths debrief). The short answer is it depends on what the client wants to get out of it. I don’t approach a session with my own agenda; as a coach, I want to follow the client’s agenda.

But if a client has never been to a coaching session, they may not know the possibilities. That’s when I like to offer options so the client can choose what will be most valuable. The subject is...

How I Apply My Strengths to My Priority Projects

I was speaking for a leadership group and asked, “How many of you know what you’re good at?” All of them raised their hands.

Then I followed, “How many of you think about using what you’re good at to do your work?” None of them raised their hands.

By not connecting their strengths with their work, they’re leaving so much value, efficiency, and power on the table.

I think this happens a lot in the workplace. We move...

35: Calling for an Awakening | David Bryant

podcast Apr 13, 2022

Reflection is needed to be aware of what path we are on. We can easily find ourselves unaware of being off track when we lack reflection. Essentially, we’d be sleepwalking and moving on autopilot. In the walk with Christ, Christian believers should be moving with full attention and intention. Today, we witness a calling for an awakening.

Over the past 40 years, David Bryant has been defined as a “messenger of hope” and a “Christ proclaimer” to the Church...

When Story Informs Calling: A Very Personal Account

faith life calling personal Apr 05, 2022

When you read the sages on calling, you understand how important it is to understand your story. Your story leaves clues to who you are, where you’ve come from, and where you are going. If you ignore your story, you leave a big piece silent that is meant to be speaking about your calling.

In the spirit of story, I’m going to share a very personal one that may help to explain why we’re shifting to a more Christianly approach to our work. As I announced in a previous blog, our...

You must ask yourself: What is the best way to live this out? Today, we learn about identifying a vocational credo.

Deborah Koehn Loyd is an educator and innovator who’s passionate about helping others to find the way forward in their lives. She’s the...
