In the coaching process, you dive deeply into exploring how each of your talents shows up in your life and how you can apply them more intentionally moving forward.
You become a detective of your own life, studying how and when you’re using your talents, what really energizes you, when you’re in the zone, and what you’d like to do more of. The process creates a lot of self-awareness, and it’s fun.
One thing that I take my clients through is creating a collage, tagline, and personal playlist. It’s fun, and you’ll be blown away at how awesome you are. How’s that for a change? It beats putting yourself down, doesn’t it?
A blindspot with a purpose
Embracing your greatness, talents, and strengths could potentially be intimidating, but in this case, since it’s your hardwiring, it’s talents that you use all the time that you didn’t even think of. It’s a blindspot in a sense, all that comes so easily for you. And why not do more of that?
There are also scenarios where you may think you have talents that you don’t.
Sometimes it’s a talent combo that looks very similar to that and comes from a different perspective and with different driving forces.
Your talents are grouped into different domains;
- Strategic thinking
- Relationship building
Depending on your lineup of talents, you can be a strategic thinker living in your head or come from a heart-based or influencing approach.
Others simply achieve by doing.
In other words, there simply is no right or wrong way to achieve your targets, only your way.
And yes, we all have blind spots. When you own who you are, delegating what you’re not good at becomes really easy and enjoyable.
Creating a life with intention
Another thing you learn in deep-diving is what to pay attention to with your dominant talents especially.
There’s a penthouse mode and a party pooper version for all, and it’s your responsibility to manage them if you want to create a life that nurtures you and the people around you.
Becoming aware of when you’re at your best vs. not is powerful. When you’re aware of what’s helping or stopping you, you can do something about it.
To quote Marianne Williamson “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?”
In the strengths process, you focus on what you have going for you, and while you’ll be stretched, it’s a painless journey when you focus on turning your talents into strengths.
