#163) Let’s Talk About Your Strengths
Today, we’re going to talk about your strengths.
Listen: I don’t care who you are or where you’re at in your career. You have so much value to offer the world–and an incredible amount of potential based on your gifts. You have the chance to step into a role that fits you, one that you love, and one that you can thrive in. If any of that interests you, then you need to learn from this episode, where we tap into the concept of professional strengths.
Today I brought on a legendary individual by the name of Kris Holmes. Kris is an executive recruiter and partner at O’Connell Group, a leading executive search firm in consumer marketing and market research. She also wrote the newly released book, Ignite Your Career: Strategies and Tactics to Unleash Your Potential.
With more than twenty-five years of experience, she is also a member of the Pinnacle Society, the premier consortium of industry-leading recruiters in North America. Kris has placed over 1,000 candidates in new jobs, and counseled more than 20,000 others at all stages in their careers in setting goals and leveraging their strengths. Before shifting to recruiting, Kris worked for a decade in consumer marketing with major corporations like Johnson & Johnson, Kraft Foods, and Ralston Purina. She’s a graduate of Tufts University and has an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern.
Kris is going to be just awesome, and this episode is going to really help you become the best professional version of yourself.
