I’m really excited for our guest today, Sarah Marie Liddle. Sarah is a certified life and corporate coach with a specialization in positive psychology. Positive psychology is the scientific study of human flourishing and an applied approach to optimal functioning.
As part of this functioning, Sarah and I talked about finding and leveraging our strengths. We so often are focused on our weaknesses and how we can improve them that we completely ignore our strengths. I believe that each one of us has unique strengths that we can leverage at work.
I used to think that if I was going to get a job or a promotion that I had to know every part of the job description. And if I had a weakness, I had to fill the gap so I was “well rounded”. What an error in my thinking! To be great, we need to know where we shine.
Sarah and I also talked about various strengths assessment tools so you can learn more about your strengths right after this podcast. If you haven’t taken a strengths test, I highly recommend that you do this! There are so many options out there, and many of them are free. Take this time and invest in yourself! I promise it will make a difference.
