Your Top Five are NOT (yet) your STRENGTHS

Your Top Five are NOT (yet) Strengths

I know a couple of folks who have listed down their Signature Talent Themes as their Strengths, in interviews and self-appraisals.

I mean, why not, right? The report did say these are your Top Five.

As much as I love StrengthsFinder and the Strengths Movement, I am really frustrated at the terminologies used. Let me repeat the title, your Top Five are NOT(automatically) Strengths. In Gallup, Strengths is the ability to consistently produce a positive outcome through near-perfect performance in a specific task.

Your Top Five are your Signature Themes. These are your talent themes that have the most potential to become strengths.

So what do you need to turn them into Strengths? To finish with strength, start with talent but a crucial element is still missing… that’s where INVESTMENT comes in.

TALENT x INVESTMENT = STRENGTH
Your Top Five are NOT (yet) your STRENGTHS

By investing time (practice) and effort (developing skills andaccumulating knowledge) on your Signature Talent Themes, you can turn them intoStrengths.

 

Good luck on your Strengths Journey!
