035: Seek Out Your Strengths and Discover the Best Possible You | Nikki Smith

Build on your strengths and your weaknesses will take care of themselves

untitled-design-3

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, we’ll be talking about how to discover, understand and use your true strengths. As women we’re often quick to identify our weaknesses, but are much more reserved when it comes to seeking out our strengths. The thing is, if we can play to our strengths and see them as our superpowers, we can use them to our advantage.

My guest today is SuperMum Nikki Smith

Nikki is a Psychologist and Career Coach, and the mum of two daughters who are 7 and 4.  She’s a keen surfer loves to catch the waves at the beach near her home in Barwon Heads in Australia.

In her work, Nikki focuses on helping her clients get to know their true strengths and encourages them to leverage those strengths to transform their work life into something that they’re passionate about.

In todays show, Nikki teaches us that your true strengths are activities that energise you, and that you find ease with. The great thing about understanding your strengths, is that you can employ them in all areas areas of your life, including your role as mum.

When you discover your strengths, you gain clarity, confidence and momentum in your life; and when you play to them, you double your productivity, resilience and creativity.

I’m really excited to talk to Nikki today because she will help you understand your strengths and in doing so, discover the best possible you.
