Intentional Leadership: 12 Lenses for Focusing Your Strengths, Managing Your
Weaknesses, and Achieving Your Purpose
Today’s executive coaching models often emphasize using strengths to accomplish career goals. Focusing on weaknesses is considered a waste of time—we’re better off using the considerable energy it takes to “fix” a weakness to develop key strengths. This philosophy, though, fails to take into account two key factors:
At the extreme, every strength can become a weakness. Unmanaged weaknesses can derail us, in the workplace and in our personal lives. Instead of ignoring our weaknesses, we need to balance our attention between strengths and weaknesses. Instead of treating these as opposite and mutually exclusive approaches to coaching, we need to see how to work with both aspects of who we are. Psychological type, with its mirroring of opposites, is an ideal tool for bringing honesty to these reflections.
In this interactive session, participants will identify their own leadership priorities, map these onto 12Leadership Lenses that relate to Jungian preferences and Emotional Intelligence, and explore the upside and potential difficulties these priorities pose in a given situation.
