- Gallup Called to Coach Webcast Series
- Season 2, Episode 14
- Learn about a way to approach your Top 5 talent themes: by owning them one at a time -- the top one first, and moving on to the next one when you're ready.
On a recent Called to Coach, we featured Jamie Librot, Gallup Senior Learning Solutions Consultant. Since joining Gallup in 2005, Jamie has consulted with external clients in a wide range of industries on various workplace issues. What follows are some of the highlights from the webcast.
When you first discover your strengths, it can often feel overwhelming as you dive into this language with which to describe yourself. Jamie suggests that if you do feel as though it is too much information to take in at once, you approach it one strength at a time. There is no prescribed length of time that you should invest into each strength, but try owning your top strength first, and then moving on to the next one when you're ready.
Jamie works frequently with Gallup-Certified Strengths Coaches, who proudly display and market their certified status upon completing coaching courses, an exam, and receiving positive feedback from references. Gallup-Certified Strengths Coaches also get their profile listed in the Coaches Directory, which encourages lead-generation and new clients.
Secrets From the Post-Show
One of the benefits of watching Called to Coach live is having real-time access to additional insights from our guests outside the allotted show time. During the post-show, Jamie told us one of her secrets to working with clients: know what their strengths are. It's certainly important to be able to leverage your own strengths, but when you know the strengths of your clients, it gives you the ability to direct the conversation in a way that is comfortable for them.
