Leverage Your Strengths to Fascinate Your Audience with Sally Hogshead

89 comments

Want to build a life and business around doing what you love? Me too. Let’s connect.

What if someone could tell you exactly how to be the most fascinating person in the room?

What if you could go into a huge pitch in front of important clients and feel extremely confident?

What if you knew yourself so well that you could step into your greatness in every conversation?

It’s possible 🙂

Today’s guest on The School of Greatness shares some POWERFUL insight into how to play to your strengths.

Sally Hogshead is a remarkable woman for many reasons (mother of 8 children, award-winning copywriter and advertising executive, best-selling author) but why I love her so much is because she brings amazing energy and passion to every conversation.

She understands that passion is one of her greatest strengths and she shares it all the time.

We met a few years ago at an event and she helped me figure out my personality strengths right away (and she was spot on).

I’ve been excited to re-connect with her on this episode to share with you her powerful fascination advantage assessment so you can get the same insight for yourself.

Listen up, take the assessment and play to your strengths with Sally Hogshead Episode 179.

The School of Greatness Podcast

Sally Hogshead on the School of Greatness

“Different is better than better.”

Some questions I ask:

  • Why did you decide to start this fascination movement (how old were you)?
  • What does fascination mean to you?
  • How do you communicate your message simply, but still make it land with your audience?
  • Don’t we sometimes need to shift our way of being to respond to who we’re talking to?
  • What are some ways you can increase your value before you communicate?

In This Episode, You Will Learn:

  • How to attract the right kind of client by being a strong version of yourself
  • Why clients will pay up to 4X more for your services if you fascinate them
  • The average attention span today is only 9 seconds – so fascinate fast!
  • The power of being authentic in a first impression (versus false or polished)

“The goal is not to change who you are but to become more of who you are at your best.”

  • The story of how she booked out her speaking gigs as a new speaker
  • Sally’s assessment of my strengths
  • #1 Advertising Question to Ask: How are you the perfect solution to your prospect’s problem?
  • What differentiates high performers from the rest – they have a specialty
  • How to compete by showing up with a different advantage
  • How to use Sally’s advantages assessment to build your confidence
  • The most and least common personality strengths
  • Plus much more…

“You don’t learn how to be fascinating – you unlearn boring.”

It's amazing how we find things just as they are needed!!  I am launching my wellness coaching business and am eager to connect with those who need my services.  Just listened to this podcast and loved taking the quiz.  Found I was the Royal Guard archetype which is right on.  Thanks for making it free and interactive.  We all love to explore our favorite subject, ourselves!   Well done, Sally and Lewis!

I may have already commented when this first came out, but I've just listened to this episode (again) to help me work out my strengths going into a meeting with a potential sponsor.
Thanks Lewis & Sally - great work

Thanks @LewisHowes for your passion and dedication to find such amazing guests! I just took the test and came up with The Catalyst, and watching Sally's video I'd have to say it was spot on. Thanks @sallyhogshead for sharing all your great work and wisdom with us!

Hey @LewisHowes Sally. Took the test and came up with The Mediator, Alert and Trust being my two Advantages, Power being my Dormant Advantage and my three adjectives were: Steadfast, Composed and By-The-Book. And from what people have said to me in the past, it can all be wrapped up in me being a 'Nice' fella. I think I need to unlearn Boring! *LOL*

Is "schoolofgreatness" the code?  It's not working for me.  I type it and it disappears. 

please let me know.

THANKS!

I took the test. Interesting results, compared to a dozen (ish) MBTI type tests I've taken so far.

Some pro tips: Make sure you are entering the code as: SchoolOfGreatness (no quotation marks)


Also, using Google Chrome or Firefox as your web browser is recommended. 


Hope that helps!

Hi, I am having trouble with the promo code to take the assessment. I've used Schoolofgreatness and greatness with no luck. Can I have some help? Thanks!!

This episode was awesome. I took the test and it described me to a T :)


Now I just have to learn how I can apply my skills/personality into looking for a better career for myself.

Enjoyed the show but was unable to access the assessment. When I put Schoolofgreatness in and hit apply it would just disappear No one else has seemed to have a problem. Any thoughts?

I did the test (thanks for the code Lewis!) So weird yet so accurate! I dont comment on post usually but seriously, I encourage everyone to listen to the podcast and do the test. Everything makes sense now. I was not using my strength and now I will. I'm pretty sure it will make all the difference. Mind blown!

What a great interview!


I took the Fascination Advantage test a few months ago and got the Coordinator. I definitely see how this fits aspects of my personality, and in fact, as a wellness coach, I think it's a critical skill to be able to look holistically at someone's life and pick out the big wins and potential problems they might have as they make a journey towards health. 


However, as an entrepreneur building a blog and platform, I feel like the "Coordinator" suggests that I should stay in a rigid box, or not try to express my creativity and personal connection with people.


My question is - how can I express this creativity and confidence as a Coordinator? Thanks!

I thoroughly enjoyed this interview and got a huge amount of value from it, thank you.  I would like to ask Sally a question, please?  She talked about helping people unlearn boring.  I would really like to learn about this skill in more depth, as the idea really resonates with me.  Could Sally please direct me towards some reading or material that could help me in this endeavour?  Thank you so much.

Great show and great guest.  Took the personality test, did something similar tho less specific and got Maestro on it, thought it would be same again, but got Secret Weapon, which seems to suit me.  I was 2% or less apart on 5 of the 7 advantages so imagine a different question or answer could easily change results. Terrific info and interesting podcast, as usual.  Thanks again for the "not the usual b.s." kind of content you share. Loving it!

Another great interview. I liked what Sally had to say...being a huge fan of Carl Jung, the concept of archetypes resonates a lot. 

I took so many personality tests in my old career as a management consultant, so was interested in seeing the flip side...how other people see me. 


My answers are so often "it depends" on these "tests". Really appreciate the free code! But wanted to take it again as my results didn't resonate with me. I wish they did, I got ROCK STAR! 


Grateful for the opportunity and food for thought either way. Thanks to you and Sally!

Hi Lewis. First of all, congratulations. I've been listening to your podcast for a few months and I must say yours is one of my favorite.


What I find most useful about this podcast is the archetipe concept. There's a lot to ponder. I'm surely going to apply these principles to my speaking business.


Again, thanks a lot for such great value. Best regards from Mallorca, Spain.


P.S. I had dinner with a friend of yours from Barcelona the other day.
