In addition to learning about himself, his own Strengths and how he could fine-tune his Strengths, an interesting realization came to Bob this week. This is what he shared:
“I fully expected to learn quite a bit about myself but what I didn’t see coming was how much I’ve learned about everyone else around me. I now find myself in meetings and conversations where I’m able to get a much quicker handle on other people, who they are, and what’s making them tick. In many cases I’m able to make an assessment of who I’m dealing with and adjust my expectations accordingly. It’s actually reducing my frustration level and in some cases has helped me make better connections with clients and peers while giving me a better understanding of why I may not be making the progress I’d anticipated. In certain situations and I’ve been able to make some adjustments.”
I look for results everywhere with my coaching clients. The results Bob is reporting is his new-found ability to understand people more quickly because he now understands his own unique wiring and he is beginning to see the unique wiring of everyone around him.
By understanding the wiring of people around him, Bob is now able to tailor his communication to each unique individual he approaches in his audience.
How much more effective might you be if you intimately understood your own unique wiring and you learned to understand the unique wiring of people around you at work, at home and at play?
