Leveraging Your Strengths

Warning: This eCoaching tool is going to require moderate amounts of self-affirmation. While this can sometimes feel uncomfortable at first, please do not hold back. An honest reflection of your unique qualities is crucial to getting the most out of this process. Take a breath. Do what you need to be able to be open and honest, and then let's go for it!

Great, let's do this!
No problem at all , and thank you for being honest.

It is completely normal and natural to feel a little uneasy about this. We are so used to the voices in our head and sometimes in our lives that judge and criticize, and that can make the idea of compliments and positive-self-talk is a little uncomfortable. However, it is also really important! Every single person holds valuable and unique gifts that they can use to make a really positive difference in their world and the world around them, and that is what this is all about. The objective here is to identify the unique qualities that make you who you are so that you can make a valuable impact, personally and professionally.

Perhaps try mentally reframing this activity.

Try not to think:

"This is going to be all about me and how good I am"

But instead think:

"This is going to help me make a really powerful difference in my life and in the world"

When we think about gifts as a way of helping others, it helps us to acknowledge and embrace them with a little more ease. This is not about being self-absorbed or conceited. It is about understanding who you are and what you have to offer the world!

Hopefully that helps, and you're feeling ready to do this!
