My kid's vice-principal and teacher came to our house yesterday. It's not what you think.
We go to a small school and when kindergarteners enter the school, it's like entering a family. They came to visit to get to know us. The kids made signs for their arrival, showed them their rooms and bounced around like little bunnies with excitement.
But what stuck were the intentional questions they asked. Most poignantly, "What strengths do you see in your son?"
And it was such a good reminder to take time to SEE him. So often, I am consumed with the day-to-day wrangling, schedule and instilling civility that I don't take time to reflect on his strengths.
Have you taken time to reflect on YOUR strengths? Because they come so naturally, we often don't see ourselves accurately. Use your eyes in new ways today to actually SEE yourself and others!
P.S. Job seekers, your strengths are part of your branding toolkit to set yourself apart from other applicants. Don't miss the opportunity to talk about what you naturally bring to the table!
