Years ago I decided to become the global evangelist for the strengths movement.
I worked for Gallup in Washington, DC from 2012-2017. I got to know dozens of top Gallup strength experts and hundreds of the best strengths coaches in the world.
Since that time, I've spread the strengths message to audiences, large and small, in hundreds of locations.
My wife Christy became a Gallup Certified Strengths coach.
All 8 of my kids know their strengths and talk about them with each other (and their friends) all the time.
Like Graham Weston, former Chairman of Rackspace, I want to get to the point in my life where I don't know anyone who doesn't know their strengths.
I genuinely love the pioneering work of Don Clifton, acknowledged by the American Psychological Association as the "father of strengths psychology and the grandfather of positive psychology."
He spent more than 50 years of his life studying what is right with people--not what is wrong with them.
His work to create a taxonomy of human talents and an online assessment to help anyone discover their "signature strengths" has the potential to change the pace of human development around the world.
To me, strengths is about seeing the value that is inherent in every human being--the greatest of all creations.
Peter Drucker said if you ask the average American what their strengths are, they'll answer with a blank stare or answer in terms of subject knowledge--which is not the right answer.
One reason I'm a strengths evangelist is that I think it can play a role in reducing deaths of despair. If people find out what they were born to be, what they were designed to do, and can find joy in doing that, then they'll be less likely to want to escape life.
Another reason I'm a strengths evangelist is that I believe a focus on strengths is the best way to accomplish Dr. King's vision of a country (or world!) that judges people based on the content of their character and not on the color of their skin.
I've seen a huge impact on diversity & inclusion from a strengths-based approach.
I've seen relationships improved. I've seen ex-offenders rehabilitated. I've seen "average" employees become exceptional by finding a different role--one that fits their strengths.
I've seen leaders and organizations go from good to great.
I've seen companies grow by billions of dollars in value by being strengths-based organizations.
I've seen the future. But it's not very evenly distributed.
And I want to spread this positive future to more cities, states, and countries.
Please contact me if you'd like to discuss a keynote speech, a conference, or any other event where I can share powerful stories and statistics about the positive impact of a strengths-based approach on individuals and organizations.
