Strength Finders Assessment: Focusing on What’s Right with People
What are your top 5 strengths? Would you be able to guess if you had to? If you haven’t explored this question before, you may have to do some deep thinking to come up with an answer. Yet, knowing where you excel and what your strengths are is critical to your professional development. Why?
Everybody has strengths–that unique combination of talents, knowledge, and skills that allow us to excel in certain areas of our lives. Our strengths are innate traits and abilities we use everyday to complete work and navigate our way through life. They help us to relate with others and to achieve our goals.
Your ability to effectively utilize your strengths, while empowering those around you to do the same thing, is directly related to the success of your entire organization. Did you know:
- People who have the opportunity to focus on their strengths every day are six times as likely to be deeply engaged (and satisfied) in their jobs.
- Satisfied team members are more productive–both individually and in teams.
- People are three times as likely to say they have an excellent quality of life when they do what their good at.
Recognizing your strengths allows you to focus on what you’re really good at. By concentrating on your core strengths you maximize the return on your time and can clearly understand what you should be delegating. Operating in what you might call your “strength zone” gets you closer to a high performance life where you are constantly growing towards your purpose and potential.
Knowing your team’s strengths provides the people you lead with an unprecedented level of self-awareness. When you understand your team better you can help them discover and develop their strengths–leading to a more productive organization. Leading with strength allows you to maximize your team’s full potential, making you a better leader and your organization more profitable.
The Strength Finders Assessment allows us to identify your strongest qualities through a series of question and answer responses. The results are incredibly accurate and provide us with a strong base of skills to hone. When we know what works, it’s easy to improve.
