Using “strengths” at work is a familiar idea, but is there MORE we could do with it? Could a fresh approach to strengths even help us "future-proof" our leaders and companies? The answer to both questions is YES, but it requires us to go beyond the traditional “strengths-finding” model and into a world of "energy intelligence".
This teleclass specifically addresses the ongoing education needs of coaches by providing a fresh approach to a familiar topic (strengths-based development and positive psychology). Presenter Josh Allan Dykstra will show you how to take the strengths approach to the next frontier, tap into the energy that overlaps with a person's true calling, and help make our organizations ready for tomorrow.
Attendees will learn:
- Why a focus on what people are “good at” is no longer good enough
- How to apply a fresh understanding to the concept of strengths-based development
- Practical examples of how an energy-based strength approach helps organizations, teams, and leaders build agility and resilience for the future
In this in teleclass, we will cover the Core Competencies of:
Co-creating the Relationship
- Coaching Presence
- Active Listening
Facilitating Learning and Results
- Creating Awareness,
- Designing Actions
- Planning and Goal Setting
- Managing Progress and Accountability
By tapping into an energy-based strengths approach, coaches can better understand how to show up in a more authentic and embodied way in their work and life. It helps build healthy self-confidence and a secure sense of “self,” which allows for more effective active listening. It also provides a powerful toolkit for helping clients build awareness, create realistic action plans, and make progress towards their objectives while staying “in their zone” of strength and motivation.
