Strategy for Strengths

Do you know what your strengths are? Have you taken Gallup’s Strengths Finder 2.0?  It’s less than $15 at Amazon; that’s too cheap to pass up.  Go order it now (and that’s not an order, but a strong suggestion).

If you take the assessment and you’re looking for someone to talk you through what it really means for you, just let me know at engineforchange@gmail.com.  I love helping people come up with strategies for how to take advantage of their strengths.

If you’ve followed this blog for a while you’ll know I’m a fan of Gallup’s Strengths Finder 2.0 assessment.  See previous posts here, here and here.

One of my top five strengths is Strategic and I’ve had the privilege of playing to it a lot lately.  I feel energized after I hold a strategy session with someone who is trying to solve a problem and is looking for some ideas for how to solve it.  I throw out a lot of suggestions and allow the person to choose for themselves which solutions work best.

Over the years of focusing on my strengths I’ve learned that any day that has one of these strategy opportunities is going to be a great day.  Today was no exception.

Thank you to my friends and coworkers who let me play to my strengths and assist them through their task challenges.  I wouldn’t be as energized without you.

    I just read this and wanted to say that I really enjoyed the Strengths Finder 2.0 assessment and feedback, but mostly I wanted to say that even though it energizes you to be helpful with looking over strengths it is still appreciated. Have a great day.
