Is it easier to make a list of your shortcomings or rattle off your top 10 strengths? Most of us focus more time trying to fix our weaknesses than developing our strengths. Are you a great learner or skilled at making friends? Do use your competitive nature to fuel your motivation and get satisfaction from your achievements? Do you make decisions slowly and thoroughly or do you do like getting things done quickly? And how do you use these traits to be the best that you can be in the field of your interest?
By studying hundreds of successful people – those who know what their strengths are and thus use them efficiently – Gallup developed an assessment to rank your top 5 strengths and encourages you to take action by using them in relating with others, team building, leadership and more. What’s great is that you don’t need a particular set of strengths in order to be a successful lawyer or teacher; your strengths will merely determine how you can leverage your talents. It’s intriguing to learn not only your own strengths but that of your family, friends, and co-workers.
Read the book to learn more about each of the 34 talent themes. Each book comes with a code that you can enter once registering on their site to assess your top 5 strengths.

Moreover, schedule a session for your employees or leadership team to better position yourselves for increased productivity and success!
