There are a variety of good tools out there to assess individual strengths. One of the most utilized in recent years is the Strengths Finder by Gallup. It is worthwhile to review results from time to time and create action plans for strengthening each of these characteristics. Today, I will provide a brief overview of my results but over a number of days will show how to create an achievable action plan for each of these strengths.
Competition – People who are especially talented in the Competition theme measure their progress against the performance of others. They strive to win first place and revel in contests.
Self-Assurance – People who are especially talented in the Self-Assurance theme feel confident in their ability to manage their own lives. They possess an inner compass that gives them confidence that their decisions are right.
Activator – People who are especially talented in the Activator theme can make things happen by turning thoughts into action. They are often impatient.
Command – People who are especially talented in the Command theme have presence. They can take control of a situation and make decisions.
Arranger – People who are especially talented in the Arranger theme can organize, but they also have a flexibility that complements this ability. They like to figure out how all of the pieces and resources can be arranged for maximum productivity.
Look for each of these to be explored in the coming days.
