What is StrengthsFinder about?
What are your strengths?
The StrengthsFinder assessment is a personal development tool developed by Gallup Education, which provides an individual with their “Top 5” strengths. 34 different strength themes are divided into four domains of Strategic Thinking, Relationship Building, Influencing and Executing. Your Top 5 might include the Achiever strength, which helps you burn the midnight oil to get things done, Woo to help you make connections with new people, or Adaptability to help you go with the flow when life throws you curveballs.
Focusing on your strengths on a daily basis has been shown to have profound positive effects on your personal and professional well-being, and here are the “Top 5” reasons on how exactly those gains are achieved:
You will feel the flow!
When you know what you do best and you put yourself in situations to express your innate talents on a daily basis, you will feel extremely engaged. Another way to describe engagement is by “being in the flow”.
People who experience “flow” are doing something where their skill level meets the challenge and they are so engrossed in what they are doing that they lose track of time and self-consciousness. Kind of like when someone expresses their creative side in a Graphic Design Internship or editing film clips in a Film Internship. They are living in the moment and expressing their true selves!
