StrengthsFinder (Gallup Organization) captures personal motivation, interpersonal skills, self-presentation and learning style to equip individuals to have an awareness of developing their existing strengths. Strength is something we enjoy doing. We do it well naturally, and practice it constantly. We are considered to be working in an area of strength when near perfect performance is observed.
Society, individuals, schools and work environments have focused on fixing our weaknesses to the point that we have difficulty even describing our strengths. Gallup has spent the last 30 years researching and has discovered that the most successful companies and individuals are those developing the strengths of their team members and speaking in a common language about those strengths. While the majority of us focus primarily on strengthening our weaknesses or pointing out the weakness of others, studies show that the most successful individuals and teams focus on making the most of their strengths and managing around their weaknesses.
Strengths, like all forms of power, when overused becomes a problem. For example, someone who is good at analysis may be more associated with over analyzing and under achieving, rather than achieving well-reasoned and effective results. The term good analyst can then become code for low achiever. Strengths provides a language and description of how it can be used to be generative to the individual and team. Individuals are not well-rounded but teams are well-rounded.
Our driving objective in using Strengths is for each participant to achieve an individual understanding of their personal Strengths Finder themes and strengths-based behaviours and begin to apply this understanding in their work and home environment.
