The Art of Saying No
I See You: The CliftonStrength of Individualization
Saying “no” to others’ requests can be so difficult for us that there are entire books devoted to the topic.
Whether it’s an invitation to serve on a board, run a committee, or volunteer for an event, we say “yes” for many reasons. But when we say “yes” too often, we’re saying no to ourselves. We’re saying no to having enough margin in our lives.
Multi-generational Strengths in the Workplace
People with the CliftonStrength of Individualization are intrigued with the unique qualities of each person. Because of that, it makes them especially happy when they get to see people doing what they love.
These employees can be great leaders and managers, because they appreciate the unique qualities of each employee.
The CliftonStrength of Futuristic
It’s not surprising that people from different generations bring different skills and ideas to the workplace. As we went through the top strengths of each generation during the workshop, employees noticed the similarities and differences and begin to understand how to tap into the strengths of the other generations.
Why Your Business Needs an Actionable Mission Statement
Does having an employee with the CliftonStrength called Futuristic mean they can see the future? Of course not! But it does mean you have someone on your staff who’s forward thinking, who sees the business as it could be, not just as it is today. When you tap into this strength you gain insight into ideas and possibilities for new products and growth that you may not consider otherwise.
How to Consistently Accomplish Your Goals
Millennial Guru helps companies develop mission statements based on their employees’ strengths. Doing so is powerful because when you capitalize on their strengths, you get the best of the people who are working to make your business better—to fulfill your mission—every single day.
Why do we so often start with great intentions, chasing our goals enthusiastically, yet reach the end of the calendar year and realize we’ve yet to see them through?
I believe that part of the reason is process and part of the reason is that if you want to reach your goals, you need to tap into your natural strengths.
