Gallup provides the “StrengthsFinders” profiling/assessment process. It’s one of the, if not THE, best such tool available, in my opinion. This leads them to other interesting perspectives, as in a recent article in their Business Journal, “The End of the Traditional Manager”,where they make the important point that the most powerful tool a manager has,is meaningful conversations. Conversations that become performance focused,using a person’s strengths, and the application of those strengths to the tasks @ hand. This is especially true ,now, they point out, that so many staff positions [ 74%] have the ability to locate elsewhere to work, and even more [84%] are matrixed into many work directions.
Though most of us believe we are adequate if not good conversationalists, using that simple leadership capacity, consistently as useful in organizations. Can you be a superb conversationalist and lead those conversations to appropriate ends!Think of bringing an easy, everyday conversation, along, to make a business point,when necessary…try it…….
