Would you like it all to make sense to you?
I know this feeling and I have some good news!
WOWZA! This book is amazing. It is a small book with small pages (always a plus for a busy one such as myself). Anyway, the way it works is that you read the first 30-34 pages of introduction and then you have a private access code in your book that allows you to go online and take the Strengths Finder 2.0 quiz. . The quiz has a series of questions which you answer. Caution, each one is timed at 20 seconds so if you tend to vascillate, be aware there is no time for indecision.
After you take the quiz, you get a printout of your top 5 areas of strength, an explanation of each area, ways to apply your new knowledge of yourself, and steps you can take to leverage your talents for achievement. (I’m being brief here there’s a little more than this included.)
The point is I took this quiz and read my results with my mouth hanging open! I kept thinking, “I’ve said those things. I love that about my life. I think these people have been watching me…”
My next step is to spend some time really digesting the information and considering how to leverage my strengths. I love the idea of capitalizing on my strengths and enlisting the help of others to cover my weaknesses. Isn’t this what team work is really all about?! Putting together all these folks with different strengths so a job gets done well.
No more trying to do it all myself. I’m going to organize my tasks into my work and the work I need others to do.
I’m totally convinced we should all be working/playing to our strengths. That’s why I’m investing in this for my oldest son and my husband too:)
Want to play along? Your next step- get the book! And, please come back and share your strengths and experiences with us!
