Hi, and welcome to the very first episode of my Maximize Your Strengths Podcast. I am Certified Strengths Strategy Business Coach Alissa Daire Nelson. As a Strengths Coach, I use StrengthsFinder 2.0—and my training in Neuro Linguistic Programming—as the basis of my own business coaching practice.

I’ll be bringing you this podcast twice a week—on Mondays and Thursdays—providing insightful interviews to help you learn how to harness and maximize your Strengths. Each episode will last only 20-30 minutes, so you can listen during your morning run, while you’re in between meetings, as you’re commuting, or even when you’re winding down after a long day.

No matter when you listen, you will gain great insight into how StrenghtsFinder 2.0 is the answer to explosive business growth and strong relationships.

The application of Strengths has the ability to boom businesses everywhere, decrease divorce rates across the globe, and create respect and community that this world has not yet seen.

Key Takeaways

  • 14 million people have taken the StrenghtsFinder 2.0 test. But most don’t know what to do with their results.
  • If you do not yet know your Strengths, it only takes a small investment of money ($15) and time (30 minutes) to identify them.
  • You are uniquely poised and wired for success!
  • Once you understand, accept, and apply your own strengths, you will also begin to cherish, rather than judge or envy others strengths and differences.
  • Follow your dreams! Just use the innate Strengths you already have to get you there.

“Your weaknesses will never develop, while your strengths will develop infinitely.”
-Donald Clifton, the father of Strengths psychology
