Episode #127: What’s Your Superpower?
The “what” is easy. Craftwork is a specialty coffee shop and vibrant membership-based workspace with locations in Fort Worth (Camp Bowie, Magnolia) and Austin (Domain). We serve craft coffee and are a connected coworking space. But you knew that already. Our “why” is our heart – we desire to create spaces and places where our members and customers experience connection and community.
Have you ever thought about it – what’s your superpower? If not, please do. The world is made better when you are applying your strengths. By knowing and using your unique strengths, you can make bigger impacts in the areas that mean the most to you.
What’s Your Superpower? We’re often taught to work on our weaknesses in order to become a more well-rounded leader. But, what would happen if we focused just as faithfully on our strengths? What if we showed up daily with these strengths to positively influence the world around us?
Take the time to write down three superpowers you have and come up with a name for these unique qualities you have. Follow each superpower up with a simple “I will be a ____ by ______,” statement. This statement will serve as a commitment to take action using your strength and provide some context as to how you are going to do so.
For example, if your superpower is being a “competitive deliverer”, your statement might be “I will be a competitive deliverer by going above and beyond on a commitment I’ve made, being 1% better than I was when I made the commitment.”
We know by now you may have quite a few things taped to your mirror if you’ve been following The Advocate for a while, but we encourage you to look at these statements and remind yourself of the power that lies within you. We believe that the world will be a better place when we each show up fully with our individual strengths. After all, we are one of a kind.
