Brandon extends his use of strengths beyond his work and into his personal life. His wife and kids took the Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment, which brought their family closer together and allowed them to connect in a way they never had before.
Strengths MeetUp Events
When it comes to collaborating with other coaches, Brandon recommends organizing local MeetUp events where strengths coaches in a particular area can get together to share insights and ideas with each other. Although he may run into his business “competition” at those events, Brandon emphasizes that everyone, including clients, can benefit when coaches collaborate.
Brandon adds that it’s important to start the event with ice breaker activities to get conversation flowing and make sure people are comfortable. He also recommends refraining from selling your practice at the event; instead, let any business leads come naturally and incidentally.
