Finding Your Strengths

By

As someone who is always trying to learn and improve the book Strength Finder 2.0 by Tom Rath was one that I had intentionally passed over.  I didn’t understand the concept since I had always seen learning as a way to improve a weak area.  I assumed that it would be a feel good book.  After reading the life changing book “Wellbeing” I decided to give this book a second look.   Early on they had me understanding their brilliant concept.  “…people have several times more potential for growth when they invest energy in developing their strengths instead of correcting their deficiencies.”

Dustin’s Top 5 Themes from Gallup’s Clifton Strengths Finder Assessment:

  • Strategic – People who are especially talented in the Strategic theme create alternative ways to proceed.  Faced with any given scenario, they can quickly spot the relevant patterns and issues.
  • Responsibility – People who are especially talented in the Responsibility theme take psychological ownership of what they say they will do. They are committed to stable values such as honesty and loyalty.
  • Analytical – People who are especially talented in the Analytical theme search for reasons and causes.  They have the ability to think about all the factors that might affect a situation.
  • Belief – People who are especially talented in the Belief theme have certain core values that are unchanging. Out of these values emerges a defined purpose for their life.
  • Intellection – People who are especially talented in the Intellection theme are characterized by their intellectual activity. They are introspective and appreciate intellectual discussions.
