SMP070: A Follow-Up Interview with Jim Collison

SubscriptionMaker Podcast

Today, we are talking with Jim Collison. Jim is the Director of Talent Acquisition and the CliftonStrengths Community Manager. He’s also the first person I’ve asked to join us a second. He gave us so much to think about I had to ask him back for more. I am your host Zachary Alexander, Subscription Service Designer at SubscriptionMaker.net. Please hit the subscribe button wherever you get your podcasts so that you won’t miss any new episodes. We are talking with Jim because there’s never been a greater need for effective communication. It looks like the lockdown may be lifting. And our teams need to assess the agree upon the new normal. We are talking with Jim because everyone communicates differently, and I believe CliftonStrengths provides a guide for ensuring no one’s feelings get hurt. Big Takeaway It’s not bad. It’s not good. It’s just different. Jim Collison suggests that this is the best mindset to approach the post-lockdown world. There has already been a lot of hyperbolic talk about our current situation. Jim reminds us that we should settle into the new normal play to our strengths. –Zachary Alexander The post A Follow-Up Interview with Jim Collison appeared first on SubscriptionMaker.

IE74 - Jim Collison | CliftonStrengths Community Manager Gallup

inspired energy

In this episode, I chat with Jim Collison, a powerhouse Talent Acquisition and CliftonStrengths Community Manager at Gallup. Jim brings his incredible knowledge of people, podcasting, and purpose to this discussion. He has facilitated and been featured on over 1000 podcasts and generously shares his top tips on the podcast process - including how to make other experts look even better and the keys to being a pro-interviewer. We also discuss his journey of Strengths discovery, the impact it's had on his relationships, the positives from the pandemic, and how to start being a better leader by shining the light on others. Key episode highlights include: It’s all about the person you’re interviewing, it’s not about you. Make other people the big deal. The less the agenda is about you and the more the agenda is about your kids/spouse/team members/employees, the more effective it is. When you find the thing that inspires you, boundaries don’t matter. What matters is the flow. Strengthening partnerships starts with one simple question: What can I do for you today? You can discover the work Jim does at Gallup by heading to Gallup - Coaching, tuning into The Average Guy Network, and Ask the Podcast Coach. #podcast #leadership #cliftonstrengths #strengths #covid19 #leadership #culture #employeeengagement #technology #gallup
