I’m always amazed that what appears to be so obvious, and in plain sight, seems to be invisible to many. Especially those who are responsible for leading corporations, managing teams and coaching athletic teams. Are you wondering what am I referring to? Good you should be.

The unfair advantage you have are the people you lead or coach. Why? Because as you already know, together they can be a powerful force to achieve everything and beyond what you would like them to. However, your challenge is figuring out the code to unlock your team’s full potential. I have figured out how to do this, and repeatedly.

What I am amazed by is why more people are not asking me to help them with this method of unlocking their team’s potential. Perhaps they aren’t convinced this is possible. Even with data. Maybe it’s because they do not consider investing in discovering their team’s greatest abilities as the investment that keeps on providing an ROI beyond their imaginations? Or, worse? Perhaps they don’t believe their team’s collective strength has the power to go beyond their current achievements?

I’m certain there are numerous reasons teams are overlooked from an investment perspective.  What if they weren’t? What if their leaders and coaches invested in them, and capitalized on their collective abilities on a daily basis, and saw results within days? Yes, this is possible.  The best part is that as time progresses, the teams which have had their strengths unlocked, continue to steadily increase the results they were initially expected to deliver.

So, are you wondering how I go about unlocking team’s potential? I do so by what I call an exercise named Team Strengths Reveal (TSR)Ô. Via a series of steps, with the first one identifying what each team members top (5) strengths are. I then focus each team member on leveraging their top strength to contribute to the team’s performance. I also borrow from a categorization concept outlined in Destination Unstoppable by Maureen Monte. What happens is that I assign each person on the team a role which is aligned with their top strength, and teach them how to leverage it.

Aligning a person’s top strength with how they can contribute to the overall team strength is part of what gives a team an unfair advantage. Why? Because other teams can’t see this invisible strength the team has. The TSR team is also capitalizing every day to hit performance metrics, but much more.

Some of the other unfair advantages the teams I work with have are that they are more motivated, united and engaged than they were prior to and after I have worked with them. By having leaders and coaches understand how to leverage each team member’s strengths, and teaching them how to harness them collectively, is what separates them from teams who do not know one another’s strengths. When a team is focused on leveraging their collective strengths, it’s equivalent to having a new formula for success you did not know existed.

When you observe a team that is working or playing together who is capitalizing on their strengths, you will notice they interact differently than other teams. Their leaders and coaches will also tell you the effects of a team leveraging their strengths is unlike any other methods they have seen applied, with such successful outcomes. Teams who are aware of one another’s strengths have a different level of respect and understanding of each other. The outcome is they interact together in a way they wouldn’t be able to achieve without this awareness.

Beyond the work or sports team the individuals are on, the people who know what their strengths are, find they are more focused, happier and productive in their lives outside of their respective teams. Their families and friends notice this too. How do I know? They tell me, and it’s one of the best feelings to know you have made a sustainable and lasting difference in someone else’s life.

Are you ready to give your work or sports team an unfair advantage? When you are, please let me know, and we will begin making this happen for them.

      Hello. Arlene.

      I am the author of this website and all of its content, and I’m glad your cousin suggested you take a look at my content. Thank you for your kind comment, and I hope that my content continues to be helpful to you. My other content site has more of my articles. I’ll send you an invite to become a follower to make it easier for you to take a look at my published content.

      I’m also a Certified Gallup Clifton StrengthsFinder Coach, TV Host, author, and have published two books which are focused on virtually mentoring people. They are available via Amazon and called: Wisdom Whisperer (Book #1), and Evolve! With the Wisdom Whisperer (Book #2).

      While I am sequestered like many other people, I’m in the process of creating a new on-line, low-cost course that you might like. My current course is found on Mighty Networks, and is under the brand of Wisdom Whisperer. I’ll send you an invitation to check out the course. It may be what you are looking for, or perhaps you know someone one could benefit from knowing about it, or taking the course. It’s called “Get Unstuck”.

      Thanks for your note, and stay healthy.

      -Kathleen

      Hello. Thank you for your inquiry. I designed the first version of my website on my own, but then hired someone to lay it out in its current version. I believe they used WordPress graphics and templates. Good luck with your project, and thank you for following my blog. – Kathleen
