Strengths

The other day I got to catch up with a dear friend Becky (K) and she is always so insightful and I value her opinion greatly…she has a way of telling me about myself and getting me to see things differently. She was telling me that at a work conference her group took this course Gallup Strength Finder plus the Test….her results were dead on. I was intrigued and so yesterday I took the test to find my Top 5 strenghts. The test is only $10 and takes about 40 minutes but you get real reports on your top strengths and how to better use them. There are 35 total strengths that could be your result….. here is how it works….

YOUR STRENGTHSFINDER RESULTS

Decades of Gallup research has proven that when individuals have the opportunity to discover their natural talents and purposely develop them into strengths, the effect on individual and organizational performance is transformational. Your personalized reports and guides will populate in the sections below once you have completed a strengths assessment. Learn more about your strengths and the strengths of others by reviewing your reports today.


You can check out the website and take the test for yourself HERE!

I thought I would share with you my strengths and a little description of what they mean to me and yes, I thought they were very accurate. I also would have never picked out a few of these for myself but after reading about them it was like unlocking part of me. Each strength has pages on applying it and highlighting it in your life which was really neat to read. 

Here are mine ranked in Order:

1. Empathy
Shared Theme Description
People who are especially talented in the Empathy theme can sense the feelings of other people by imagining themselves in others’ lives or others’ situations.

2. Activator

3. Communication

4. Woo

    Just from know you online, I agree that it sounds like you. I will try to sit down soon and take it too. I am curious. Years ago I took personality profiles. One when I was in early twenties and then early thirties for a Client Service Rep at my last company. They were both totally opposite but, I knew I had changed a lot due to life experiences. So, I am really interested in what this will say, at this stage of life. LOL

    I'm so glad that you took this assessment and are embracing your strengths. It's been so much easier for me to focus on what comes naturally as opposed to trying to develop characteristics that just "aren't me".
