One of my favorite clients walked into a recent coaching session with a gift bag in hand and a huge smile on her face. She ceremoniously presented me with this very fun gift (ha ha, now you know why she’s one of my favorites – thank-you Julie!)! As a strong-ever-developing-constantly-growing CEO she has taken to heart many of the models and assessments we’ve used, continuing to evolve and challenge herself in the area of leadership on a daily basis through her heightened sense of awareness, mindfulness, intentionality, strategic thinking, etc., etc. – Bravo! This cool gift takes that mindfulness and sense-of-self to a new level. Yep…she brought me a mug featuring my Top 5 StrengthsFinder attributes – available through www.StrengthsMugs.com. I can tell you, having your Top 5 stare you in the face everyday REALLY gives you an opportunity to embrace and leverage! And in some crazy way, excite!! Gallup’s research states that if you are not working in your strength zone, you are SIX times less likely to be engaged (!!)…and a strengths-based approach impacts things like direction, confidence, and hope. I’m fortunate, my business totally “embraces and leverages” my strengths and allows me to work “in the zone” on a daily basis, which is a blast!!!
What would you be doing if you were working in the zone every day?! Maybe it’s time for you to get mugged!
