Hi, my name’s Dr. Paul Brewerton, the strengths guy, Doctor of Organisational Psychology and founder and Chair of Strengthscope. Today I have with me Scott Christie, Strengthscope’s Head of Training and Integration, which is a very exciting thing indeed as Scott and I have a lot of conversations and now we’re going to have one that we share with you, so welcome to the podcast, Scott.
Today’s podcast I know has the potential to be super wide-ranging as you’re a true, genuine strengths advocate and user and we could talk about all sorts of different topics that are strengths-related. But what I’d like to hone in on if we could is the emerging idea of Adaptability Quotient – how this can be developed and in particular, how this can be developed using our strengths. Plus I’d like to touch on a couple of bonus topics for added pizazz if there’s time; and if there isn’t, we can definitely schedule another conversation for not too long from now. You up?
Before we get to that, I know you’re a listener to the podcast (and that’s not because it’s actually contractual lol). I also know that you like to listen to it at 1.5x speed. And I already tend to think of myself as quite a fast talker…on the podcast anyway. So tell me about that particular preference of yours if you will. Is it simply a matter of trying to pack as much learning and personal development into each day as efficiently as possible, or is there something more here?
Now as you’ll know, I often ask my fellow strengths conversationalists to give a bit of a potted life story as it can really ground the conversation and provide context for their point of view and for the topics we go on to discuss.
