StrengthsQuest

Thanks to Duke TIP, today I got to take the StengthsQuest Analysis! The Gallup Organization has prepared a Strengths Finder that is focused on highlighting individuals' strengths so that they can develop strategies and meet demands in life. 

The StrengthsQuest isn't free... so if you work for an organization that is interested in team building
check out this site! The site is really easy to use and the results are fairly accurate. 

My Results/ Themes: 

1) Developer- "You see the potential and the good in others.When you interact with others, your goal is to help them experience success. Over time many will seek you out for help and encouragement because on some level they know that your helpfulness is both genuine and fulfilling to you." 

2) Positivity- "You are generous with praise, quick to smile, and always on the lookout for the positive in the situation. You celebrate every achievement. You find ways to make everything more exciting and more vital. Somehow you can't quite escape your condition that it is good to be a life, that work can be fun, and that no matter what the setbacks, one more never lose one's sense of humor"  

3) Discipline- "Your world needs to predictable, ordered, and planned. You set up routines and focus on deadlines. Faced with the inherent messiness of life, you want to feel in control. The routines, structures, and timelines help create the feeling of control."

4) Responsibility- "Your Responsibility theme forces you to take psychological ownership for anything you commit to, and whether large or small, you feel emotionally bound to follow it through to completion. If for some reason you cannot deliver, you automatically start to look for ways to make it up to the other person"

5) Empathy- "You can sense the emotions of those around you. You can feel what they are feeling as though their feelings are your own. Intuitively, you are able to see the world through their eyes and share their perspective. 

So, for those of you who know me personally... I would say those describe me pretty accurately. I love having an orderly way of life and responsibilities. I also love people and seeing the good in people, in the world, and in life in general. Can't wait to debrief this exercise and learn what all the other staff members' strengths are! Thanks Duke for providing me with this excellent opportunity.
