In my current journey to living the life I want and destined to have, I’ve been focused on my unearthing my passion and strengths. Some people tend to focus more on their weaknesses, by either trying to strengthen it or dwell in it. Even I’m guilty of doing this myself, deep in my heart and mind, I knew that wasn’t the right area to focus. However, I didn’t know how to find, focus and increase my strengths.
So, when I saw Strength Finder 2.0, it instantly spoke to me and urged me to buy it.
To help people uncover their talents, Gallup introduced the first version of its online assessment, StrengthsFinder, in the 2001 management book Now, Discover Your Strengths.
Loaded with hundreds of strategies for applying and finding your strengths, the book is set up as follow:
StrengthsFinder: The Next Generation
- I: Finding Your Strengths
(A 30-page overview of strengths psychology and how the Gallup system works)
- II. The StrengthsFinder (www.StrengthFinder.com)
(If you haven’t taken it before, the code to take the test is provided in a packet inside the book. You actually have to buy the book to take the test)
- III: Applying Your Strengths
(After getting the results from your online assessment, there are 150 pages outlining each of the 34 themes including what people with that strength look like, how to manage them, and ideas for action if you have that strength).
This book is an easy read with informative and information that creates a guiding light to the path you need to find and focus on your personal strengths to, ultimately, lead you to the life you want and deserve.
