[Recap] Defining Job Roles Around CliftonStrengths Leads to Success






On a recent Called to Coach, we spoke with Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach, Omar Luqmaan-Harris.

Omar was introduced to strengths in 2002 when he was 25 years old and just starting at his first corporate job. He immediately grasped the idea that we need to develop people in a positive way, but he didn’t do much with his CliftonStrengths for the next three years. Luckily, Omar eventually moved to a new team with a manager who focused on strengths, and that’s when he began to succeed. His new manager redefined his role around his strengths and what he was good at. Omar has been paying it forward with his strengths coaching ever since!

Omar set a high goal to become a marketing director at a young age. Because he had a manager who built his job around his strengths, he was very conscious about applying them to his job every day and he began to notice and focus on others’ strengths as well. He created development plans around strengths and he began to get wins and grow his confidence. When he began to lead teams, he applied strengths to his teams and saw great success. The type of progression he made with using strengths had never been seen before in his company.
