What are Strengths?
Talents are a naturally recurring pattern of thought, feeling, or behavior that can be productively applied.
Strengths identify as an ability to consistently produce a positive outcome through near-perfect performance in a specific task. To finish with strength, start with talent.
Strengths show up as a combination of talents, you will see this after you discover your Top 5. Strengths combine Talents, knowledge and skills that every person possesses. People use these innate traits and natural abilities in their daily lives to succeed in their work, relate with others, and to achieve their goals, true story!
Themes are neutral
No one theme is better than another, kind of like super heroes. One might be strength of fire while another may have a strength of sensory knowing how to read people and how they may respond.
Themes are not labels
labels typically lead to a negative connotation and Strengthsfinder is founded on the guideline of positive pursuit of natural ability
Lead with positive intent
Living in the balcony of your talent / theme is rewarding when done with positive intent
Differences are an advantage
support and aligning with our team mates to bring a full compliment of talent to any given situation is what makes a team strong over all
People need one another
to be able to work together and bring success to the team and organization.
