About This Episode

We all want to hire people who are good at what they do, but how do we make sure we’re allowing our team members to play to their unique strengths? This is a question that Carrie Fabris has helped many leaders answer as a coach and a speaker, and in this episode, she’s going to share her insight with our listeners. 

Anyone who listens to this episode should gain a better understanding of what it means to leverage your strengths in your personal and professional life, while also equipping others to do the same.

1. Many leaders struggle to help their people play to their strengths. Leaders are often too busy focusing on results versus on the human who’s driving those results. They’re focused on driving the success of the business versus the engagement of the business. And effective leaders focus on both — driving results through happy, engaged people.

2. The percentage of people actively disengaged is at the highest it’s been in over a decade. A lot of organizations became disconnected during COVID because everyone went remote. The burn out that came with the great resignation was not about compensation; it was about purpose. An achiever just wants to mark things off their to-do list and get things done. If someone, something or some process is in their way and they can’t mark that thing off, they will be frustrated. Keeping great talent happy and working in their zone of strength is important to your overall organizational health.

3. Leverage your strengths at home. Playing to your strengths doesn’t start and end at work. When you have an awareness of your strengths, what to call them, how to aim them for that near perfect performance and playing to them in a productive manner, no matter the environment, you’re able to succeed by aiming them inward towards yourself.
