Lisa Cummings: Lead Through Strengths Lisa Cummings is the CEO of Lead Through Strengths. She’s also the host of the podcast by the same name. Key Points Understanding another person’s strengths can help you work better with them. CliftonStrengths (formerly StrengthsFinder) conversations should not just happen one day a year, they should be discussed and thought about often. Ask employees, “How did you use your strengths yesterday?” Think of a CliftonStrengths (formerly StrengthsFinder) session as a starting point for an ongoing conversation, not just a one-time event. Partner with people who are strong where you’re weak.
