What makes LIFO different?
1. Strengths Based
The LIFO method focuses on strengths, on what is right about leaders, teams and individuals. This approach is not about changing oneself. Rather it promotes positive behavioral change by providing strategies for managing strengths effectively, resulting in greater versatility and productivity. This approach also encourages appreciating and working with others whose strengths are different. Accepting people for who they are also reduces friction and allows teams to make the most of everyone’s strengths.
2. Not A Typecast
The LIFO method identifies behavioral style preferences, not personality types. It is “what we do”, as opposed not “who we are”. All styles have the ability to do everything, it is just a question of approach. Understanding one’s preferred style and strengths opens doors to exploring and rethinking how to approach different situations, assigned tasks, desired goals, etc. To reiterate, everyone has all the strengths, it is how one uses these strengths, their preference, that makes them different from another. How much a person uses each strength, the specific ratio and combination of strengths, is what makes each person unique.
3. Multifaceted Application
The LIFO Method can be/and has been used in training, coaching, consulting, organizational development as well as a tool for personal development. Here are some examples:
