I love giving presents to family and friends. I think it’s a great way to express my love and appreciation for them and all that they do for me in my life.
Recently, I gave my brother his birthday present… Normally it would be a gift card to Chili’s or an iTunes card, but this year I wanted to make a positive impact on the rest of his life. So, instead I gave him a copy of Clifton StrengthsFinder 2.0 and a coaching session to go over his results.
At first there was a bit of hesitation, but once I explained why I love the Clifton StrengthsFinder so much, he was on board and excited to move forward with taking the assessment and the follow-up coaching session.
During the coaching session, we had an enjoyable time exploring what his strengths mean for him on a personal and professional basis. It was actually quite fun for me to understand his strengths and then to reflect back on our childhood. I kept thinking “No wonder he was acting like that when we were kids!”.
One thing he mentioned is that the conversation about how to apply the strengths to his life was far more helpful than just taking the assessment. I agree! You can take assessments all day, every day, but it’s the guidance from a career coach that will help to know how to apply the information to your life and career. I love my family and want them all to be the best in their careers!
If you love your family and want to make a positive impact on them, gift them a coaching session where they will benefit from one-on-one time with me. Send me an email to set it up! I’d be honored to help your family members do better in their careers.
