Episode 74 – Jim Collison | CliftonStrengths Community Manager Gallup

In this episode I chat with Jim Collison, a powerhouse Talent Acquisition and CliftonStrengths Community Manager at Gallup.

Jim brings his incredible knowledge of people, podcasting and purpose to this discussion. He has facilitated and been featured on over 1000 podcasts and generously shares his top tips on the podcast process – including how to make other experts look even better and the keys to being a pro-interviewer.

We also discuss his journey of Strengths discovery, the impact it’s had on his relationships, the positives from the pandemic, and how to start being a better leader by shining the light on others.

Key episode highlights include:

  • It’s all about the person you’re interviewing, it’s not about you. Make other people the big deal.
  • The less the agenda is about you and the more the agenda is about your kids/spouse/team members/employees, the more effective it is. 
  • When you find the thing that inspires you, boundaries don’t matter. What matters is the flow.
  • Strengthening partnerships starts with one simple question: What can I do for you today?

You can discover the work Jim does at Gallup by heading to Gallup – Coaching, tuning into The Average Guy Network and Ask the Podcast Coach.
