Know your strenghts and focus on them


One of the personality tests I recommend is Strengthsfinder (by Gallup, now called CliftonStrengths). I agree with the principle that you should leverage your strengths instead of trying to fix your weaknesses. This method will give you great insights about how others may perceive you as well and the blindspots you may need to be aware of. 

I am happy to share my strengths with some key points I have reflected on:

  • Strategic
    • I am able to sort through the clutter, synthesize a large amount of information, and find the best action plan. I can see patterns where others simply see complexity and build a long term vision  
    • This also mean that I don't like paying too much attention to details and I like to surround myself with people who do
  • Activator
    • I excel at turning thoughts into action. I believe in achievement, through small steps, towards a bigger goal that is always in sight. I bring in resilience and never give up on reaching the impossible
    • In order...

Great lessons from a great book

balance coaching Mar 25, 2021

I just finished a classic book that was recently recommended to me (I cannot believe I hadn't heard about it yet). The Four Agreements reminded me of many principles I have learned over time:

✅ Be impeccable with your word: integrity is a key foundation to living a fulfilled life
✅ Don’t take things personally: people have a lot of things going on that are not under your control
✅ Don’t make assumptions: we are human and tend to make crazy stories about many things. Just ask when you need an answer.
✅ Always do your best: life is short and don’t regret that you could have tried a little harder to accomplish your goals

Why formulating a problem statement is a top critical thinking skill

How to formulate a problem statement is an essential skill to build. A problem statement doesn’t necessarily mean that there is a “problem” but it describes what you are trying to achieve, which can be an improvement, a problem to solve or a new and different way of doing things.

What can be challenging about creating a problem statement is to be able to lead with abstract thinking, instead of creating a solution before understanding the potential scope of what you are dealing with. The difference between creating the problem statement and finding the optimal solution can be seen as strategy vs. operations. If you are operation-driven, you may be in the habit of basing your performance on quantity (how much we do); if you are strategy-driven, you want to “think first” before going into action so that you can ensure you are on the right direction and could create a new way of doing based on quality, leading to better outcomes. You may still want to be...

Start with WHY

strategy Nov 05, 2020
I believe in keeping a strategic mindset in everything we do. We need focus and discipline to reach our goals. A first step to think about our goals and keep us motivated is to be clear about our Why:
Why are we doing what we are doing?
It seems trivial but I will challenge you to consider may things you do on a daily basis that may not be in line with the Why.
  • Your Why helps you prioritize your tasks
  • Your Why helps you set your goals and how to measure them
