The StrengthsFinder coaching session with Jason allowed me to better understand my strengths, how I have subconsciously leveraged on some of these strengths in the past and how I can more deliberately use these key strengths to drive desired behaviors and successes for future performance.
Coming from a background in psychology, I have done many psychological evaluations. While many have been illuminating, none have made me walk away feeling empowered to deal with the challenges life brings. During my session with Jason, I felt assured about my next career move and enlightened about how to use my strengths to overcome difficulties I have in areas where I am lacking. I highly encourage everyone, even those who think they are self-actualized, to invest in a StrengthsFinder coaching session with Jason.
Victor asked thought-provoking and insightful questions, leading me to realize so much about myself. The 1-on-1 coaching sessions with Victor benefitted me hugely, allowing me to gain an increased sense of confidence, knowing that I could be successful and lead others out of my strengths.
The coaching conversation with Victor was intellectually stimulating to say the least. He didn’t “spoon-feed” me with answers when we were talking about how to push myself to my fullest potential. Instead he dropped prompts along the way to help me through the thought processes. I was able to come to terms with my StrengthsFinder top 5 - that they weren’t “lousy” strengths, and that they have contributed to making me who I am today. I remember going home that evening, feeling like I can truly own this journey of honing my strengths to be an even better version of myself than I already was.
Meiling possesses the ability to advise and highlight the strengths and blind spots I have, and suggest methods on how to overcome these blind spots with my strengths. She is sensitive and sharp at the same time in that she linked situations I’ve described to her to the strengths that I did not realise I had. She also advised me on how I could enhance my overall behaviour towards work, and to adjust my inner expectations. Overall, I feel satisfied that I am able to have a clearer view of my strengths and apply all of the new insights to my work life.
My coaching session with Victor helped me to better understand and value the strengths that I have. He helped me to appreciate that leadership is multi-faceted and multi-dimensional compared to my previous understanding of good leaders possessing certain specific traits/strengths. Victor’s detailed explanations and suggestions of ways I can further develop my strengths and leverage them for success at my workplace, have shed much light for me. I now no longer focus on what I do not have. Rather, I yearn to be more conscious and sensitive to my strengths and my instinctive ways of thinking and interacting with others. Personally, I would say that his coaching has also made me a more positive person, as it helps me to recognize potential in others, instead of their lack.
The StrengthsFinder coaching session with Meiling helped re-align my heart and direction in life. Meiling is an individual who invests in a deep connection with the people she coaches. The authenticity in our discussions and heartfelt conversations really struck me. I’m glad that the entire session felt like I was speaking with my elder sister. I enjoyed the sharing of personal stories in relation to the strengths we touched on. I love how it was a 2-way thing. I especially enjoyed it that there was lots of communication going on, and that there was a special connection that was really genuine! 10/10!
Understanding StrengthsFinder and the interpretation is not an easy task. But after a session with Meiling, she distilled it into something that was easy to comprehend even for the untrained. Her friendly and caring personality eased the setting, allowing my wife and I to open up about ourselves freely. Her explanation of our StrengthsFinder profiles helped us understand our strengths better and how it could be used to improve our relationships both at home and in the workplace. Meiling is a good listener and has a good grasp of how the different strengths fit well with one another and when conflicts could arise. The way she packaged and delivered the findings to us was simple to understand, yet very insightful. 9/10!
