Personal Insights

Do you share the Theme Insight or Theme Discovery cards when coaching? The Personal Insights report in Cascade shows the theme information for the top 5 on one page. It is an excellent takeaway for your clients.

For each theme it covers;

Cascade Personal Insights CliftonStrengths theme dynamics
  • Descriptive words
  • The role I play – words describing who I am
  • I am – being
  • I will – doing
  • The value I bring
  • The needs I have – give me
  • Metaphor / Image
  • Barrier label
  • My motivators
  • My demotivators

To see the Theme Insights for a different person, select their name from the yellow drop-down box. The selection in the Team page determines the names available in the list.

Cascade Personal Insights CliftonStrengths Theme Comparisons

Using the option at the top of the page, it is possible to replace the Metaphors and Barrier Label rows with the Theme Comparisons. (This is just for the reports in English).

Two sets of Theme Comparisons compare their top 5 themes with other similar or contrasting themes. This helps to build an understanding of how the themes are similar, yet different.

Coaching Questions

  • Which characteristics of the themes resonate with you, or help you make sense of the way you think and feel?
  • What new revelations or discoveries does this information provide?
  • What other words or scenarios can you add to any of the categories?

Some coaches show the Personal Insight report to their clients at the outset to see what resonates. Others like to save this report to the end of the conversation. It is a comprehensive set of information for the client to take away and explore in their own time.

The Value you Bring

Working with engineering-minded professionals in the B2B Technical Service Industry, often they are challenged to find the adjectives and adverbs that define who they are and what they do.

I encourage them to identify the words that best describe themselves from their specific Personal Insights Report. Not all words resonate, but a large number of them do. We then work on an Authentizity-developed exercise that asks them to use “their words” to answer four questions about their profession. This enables them to Identify, Hone, and Articulate™ (IHA) the value they bring to their company and their clients. None of this would be possible without the rich and reliable information that is derived from Cascade’s Personal Insights.

If only I knew about this sooner!

I cannot believe how much time this tool have saved me, I run strengths workshops every week, now I can run a whole host of reports for my clients with the data I already have. Talk about playing to strengths and leveraging those of others around you. Richard clearly has an abundance of talent in areas I do not, a genius and an excel wiz. My clients love the info provided and pretty sure they too will be signing up to the tool as there is SO much you can do with it. The desk tents, Summary data and strengths insights are my favourite.
