Strengths key to success in orgThe power of Strengths is the key to success in any organization. In her latest article, How Employees’ Strengths Make Your Company Stronger, Susan Sorenson illustrates the link between use of strengths on the job and employee engagement. It’s true — employees who use their strengths are more engaged, perform better, are less likely to leave — and boost your bottom line. More than three decades of Gallup research confirm that building and focusing on employees’ strengths is a more productive approach than trying to improve their weaknesses. Read Susan’s article here.

Our Funhouse Mirror: the Power of Perception — 1

by Rosealee Lee

Perception is that simple, yet powerful influence that is embedded in all of our actions and interactions. looking_in_mirror_successful_400_clr_5648 We usually don’t think much about it. Perception is much like a mirror at a carnival funhouse.  You can see yourself in it, but the image you see is distorted.  And, after years of looking in that mirror, you convince yourself that the image you see is true.  The funny thing is that others who view (or perceive) you, are seeing someone much different.  And, their perception becomes their reality. You’re looking thru the funhouse lens and they’re looking thru their own lens.  All too often, no one is looking at the genuine, authentic YOU.
