Happen To Your Career

The feeling you get when you discover your strengths then gain enough clarity on how to apply them in a career that fits, is like opening up a portal to knowing exactly what you want.

You could even say it’s like doing self reflection -> exactly how Kirby Verceles described it

In this HTYC episode, Scott Anthony Barlow chats with Kirby about how she went from feeling stuck and having to do some soul searching by asking herself the tough questions, to finally gaining clarity on how to apply her signature strengths. The result? The feeling of happiness coming to work every morning (Kirby’s definition of success).

What to Listen For

  • Find out specifically how Kirby learned her strengths (and began to use them)
  • Learn how to think about Strengths and weaknesses in a way that benefits your entire life
  • How to use your signature strengths to make work feel different (and not so much like “work”)

Alissa knew she had to make a change when she could no longer see anything. 

Not in a metaphorical sense. Nope. The doctor had confirmed that her periods of temporary blindness were work-stress induced. And as it turns out, Alissa was unwilling to give up her eyesight for her job!

Alissa’s career began in Human Resources. She worked her way up to Director Level HR roles in municipalities! That’s where she started experiencing stress like she’d never experienced before. 

She also knew that there had to be a different way to do work! A way that fit her. That’s when she began thinking about opening her own consulting business!

What You’ll Learn

  • What worked (and didn’t work) as Alissa started her consulting business
  • Why she started thinking about consulting as career in the first place!
  • How she went from temporary blindness to much more fulfilling work (and what were the hardest parts along the way!)

Wondering how to use the Clifton StrengthsFinder Assessment? Is it accurate, Will it tell me what type of career I should focus on? How do I use it outside of my work? 

All good questions: We thought it would be better to show you how people can use strengths, what they are, how they work, even how to incorporate them into things like interviews. We also thought it would be best if we showed you this real time.
