Developed Strength Overview

Workshop ( 10 Minutes)

#1 Skills are Mastery, Proficiency and Competency with Methods, Steps, Sequences, Tool Use and Technology) Skills are developed through deliberate systematic effort, intentional practice and often supported by training and coaching. You want to focus on developing skills that compliment or build on your natural talent. For instance, one example of a natural talent is rhythm. Complimentary skills might be dance or drums. Another natural talent is 3 Dimensional Visualization. Complimentary skills might include architecture drafting, computer graphics animation, construction trades or automotive repair.

List some of your skills:

#2 Knowledge including General Vocabulary, Professional or Industry Specific Terminology, Rules, Regulations, Laws, Principles, Theories, Information, Facts and Understanding. You want to focus on developing knowledge in areas that compliment or synergize with both your natural talents and the subjects you’re passionate about. If I wanted to become a professional baseball player, I should get at least basically acquainted with the rule book and arm myself with an understanding of sacrifice bunts and sacrifice flies.

List some of your knowledge:

#3 Education including reading, attending lectures, classes, coursework, degrees, certifications and certificates. You’ll want to structure your education around gaining talent based skills, passion based knowledge and your education should ideally correlate with your natural Learning Style.

Try to get experience related to the career you’re passionate about pursuing but, really, your experience strengths include almost any goal oriented work that includes collaboration, taking direction and working harmoniously with other people.

The Purpose of this letter is to describe the benefits I enjoyed from my coaching experience with Dale Cobb. I had a very specific issue, which I needed help getting over the hump with. Our conversations were very helpful in keeping me on track and getting me to the finish line. I believe that Dale is a keen observer of the human condition and has the ability to reflect back an individuals thoughts and goals as one strives for success. I found the services offered by Dale to be timely and effective. In the future, I am sure I will be presented with challenges that require outside assistance. When that time comes, I will not hesitate to call on Dale for his fresh bright and insightful guidance.
