Strengths as a 2nd Language

A 5-week deep dive into learning the 34 talents of CliftonStrengths.

It is my belief – and my mission – to help others understand the basic definition of all 34 talents. One thing 8 billion people have in common are these 34 words. Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could start to build back our communities by sharing this language and recognizing that our differences are what make us stronger?

The best way to predict the future is to create it.

Whether you think Abraham Lincoln or Peter Drucker said the above quote, one thing for me is clear – it’s true!

In fact, it sums up my mission, which is to create a Strengths-Based Generation. And the only way to do this, is to start teaching CliftonStrengths as a Second Language. The earlier we do this, the more likely those 34 powerful words become an integral part of any language!

This is the basis of the Practical Strengths Book Series, the first of which focuses on Parenting and the second of which focuses on Career Success.

Brand new resource guides for CliftonStrengths® Coaches and Enthusiasts alike.

A guide that will bring Strengths out of the professional world and into the personal one.

One that will show us how we can be our best in all areas of our lives.

Jo Self is on a mission to teach Strengths as a Second Language so we can Raise a Strengths-Based Generation. She seeks to create a world where everyone can live to their full potential, talents aren’t wasted and happiness is contagious. As a mompreneur and expat who for the past 11 years in Peru and is now located in Mexico City, she understands the challenges and rewards that both entail. When she’s not helping others create extraordinary lives, she can be found at the sewing machine, at the movies, enjoying a glass of wine with friends or horsing around with her terribly precocious little boy, affectionately known as O.

Currently she is a dedicated bilingual (Spanish & English) Gallup Certified Strengths Coach, Facilitator and Trainer who has worked with clients in over 23 countries. She enjoys working with individuals, but also serves teams of Fortune 500 companies in an international capacity.

In the past, Jo was busy developing nationally recognized and award winning employee programs for Yum! Brands, the world’s largest fast food restaurant company. And when she wasn’t leading in-house teams to discover their strengths, she was on loan to other organizations helping them to do the same – all while serving on the national board of directors for her professional organization, ESM Association.

Once she left the corporate ranks, she started her own event business, Bon Vivant Savant, and was recognized as both a “Top Female Under 40” influencer in the community by Louisville Woman Magazine and also as a leading entrepreneur in the “40 under 40” list by Business Week Magazine.

After leaving the States in 2010 and moving permanently to Peru (eventually becoming a citizen as well), her entrepreneurial spirit continued with a tourism start-up that won a government grant as well as being recognized by ADEX as a top 50 start-up in the country. But that dream wasn’t fulfilling her spirit and a health scare led her to her true calling, being a Strengths Advocate.
