The Unleash Your Strengths Session
With Deirdre Danahar
To Start Making the Best of What’s in You
Your strengths are the foundation for building your best career. They are there when you most need hope. They offer you perspective when chaos erupts. They guide you as you lead with fairness, humility and by example. They are the good in you.
The Unleash Your Strengths Session is a 3-part personalized coaching package designed to help you quickly tap into your strengths to resolve some of your most perplexing professional challenges.
The Unleash Session is especially effective if you are . . .
- Exploring a career transition and struggling to find an ideal fit
- Starting a new business with a partner and need to make decisions about roles and responsibilities
- Working in a family business and want to add value to your role
- Stepping into a leadership role and need to define your leadership style
- Re-visioning your work and want what you do to be centered around your strengths
- Longing to bring more depth and meaning to a career you love
Unleashing Your Strengths
Transforms Your Work
Anyone who has prepped for a job interview knows they need to formulate an answer to the question “What is your greatest strength?” But what about your other 23 strengths? The ones that, for most of us, fly under the radar of self-awareness.
24. That’s the number of character strengths you have, according to research conducted by a wealth of psychologists and human development experts.
I call the 24 character traits your best-of-self strengths: the qualities that make you who you are at your core (versus skills you acquire over time). For example, fairness, leadership, forgiveness, curiosity, critical thinking, humor, humility.
All 24 are beautiful, hope-filled, full of possibility.
Knowing your greatest strength is informative.
Integrating your best-of-self strengths is transformative.
- Shape your career around who you are versus shaping yourself to a job
- Build a business that is deeply rooted in who you are and what you do best
- Infuse an increased sense of authenticity into your management style
- Create more ease walking your talk at work
- Make wise decisions about roles and responsibilities in a business
When you use your strengths in strategic, informed ways at work, those strengths and insights come forward in your personal life too. I’ve seen it time and time again in my 12 years as a business, career and life coach.
- Shift from a “what’s wrong” to a “what’s strong” way of living your life
- Acknowledge problems without getting lost in them
- Focus your mind and efforts on what is best and good
- Develop more confidence and push yourself to evolve as a person
- Feel energized and enterprising
- Connect with others, creating mutually supportive and meaningful relationships

Part 1: A 30-Minute Assessment Finds What's Best about You
The free 30-minute online assessment is designed to measure your character strengths - what's best in you. The assessment is a well-studied, scientifically validated, respected test that has been taken by more than 2.5 million people in over 190 countries.
Knowing your strengths is the essential first step you take on the path to grounding your insights, strategies and actions in a strengths-based approach - building on a strong foundation of what's working, not what's lacking.
Part 2: An Assessment Review Helps You See Beyond Labels
I will review your assessment and create a personalized structure that will help you see beyond the descriptions and categories within the assessment results. We'll look at how your 24 character strengths rank and cluster.
Learn How Your Strengths Are Ranked
Ranking gives you a deeper understanding of your strengths, helping you be more mindful about which strengths you are using, along with an awareness of the strengths you might not otherwise tap into and bring forward.
- Top-level traits are the 3 to 7 traits you use so innately and effortlessly, you often take them for granted as personality traits, not the high-level character strengths they truly are.
- Middle-level traits are the next 5 to 8 traits you can easily and reliably call upon when needed.
- Lower-level traits are the remaining 5 to 8 traits you call upon least often and take the most effort for you to do so.
Learn How Your Strengths Are Clustered
Knowing how your strengths cluster helps you understand what gets in your way, where you get stuck and how you can avoid these booby traps. It also helps you understand how your strengths can be used to complement each other.
- Self-Focused Strengths
- Perseverance, Curiosity, Open-Mindedness, Social Intelligence and Self-Regulation
- Other-Focused Strengths
- Forgiveness, Leadership, Kindness, Honesty, Bravery, Love and Teamwork
- Strengths of Mind
- Love of Learning, Perspective, Critical Thinking, Humility, Prudence, Creativity and Fairness
- Strengths of Heart
- Hope, Spirituality, Appreciation of Beauty and Excellence, Zest and Gratitude
Part 3: A 75-Minute Private Phone Coaching Session Transforms Insights into Action
This is where the real magic of the Unleash Your Strengths Session happens. Together we transform the insights from the assessment into practical, useful and meaningful action.
In a private 75-minute coaching session we'll take a clear-eyed look at how your strengths are (and are not) showing up in your life, and I'll help you create personalized strategies you can use immediately to tackle some of the most difficult challenges you face in your work.
