On this episode, we sit down with Keith Hall, Chief Diversity Officer at Azusa Pacific University, to talk about how he utilizes strengths-based leadership to lead teams based on where people are strongest and compliment each other. The heart of strengths based leadership is seeing others’ strengths as assets and unique—affirming them. The 3 strands in the strengths philosophy are self awareness, others awareness, and collaborative engagement (we awareness). He sheds valuable light on how to lead on your own strengths, your team’s strengths and the importance of being in communication with people with lived experiences of the problem you want to solve.
“It’s not enough to have someone at the table, there need to be opportunities to redistribute power.” – Keith Hall
