Discovering My Strengths

“God gives talent. Work transforms talent into Genius”

                                                                     – Anna Pavlova

With our Personal Strengths Discovery session, you will be able to:

  1. Recognize how to multiply your time by developing your dominant talents as opposed to spinning your wheels trying to be something you’re not
  2. Articulate how your dominant talents work together to give you a very personal purpose and mission
  3. List areas where you may self-sabotage your dominant talents
  4. Identify areas where you need to partner with someone who compliments you, not competes with you
  5. Create an action plan with solid next steps to focus on your areas of strength

 

If you were anywhere on the planet in 2010, you probably remember the night that Susan Boyle appeared on Britain’s Got Talent. What was supposed to be a forgettable performance became so memorable that over 24.5 million people have viewed the video on YouTube since that night:

Susan Boyle was blessed with a natural inclination (propensity) toward singing. If she had taken a strengths assessment as a young person, she may have discovered a strength for expression or empathy. In the video, Ms. Boyle said she had been singing in front of people since she was 12 (she was almost 48 at the time of her appearance on television). That was 36 years of performing at family gatherings, singing in front of the bathroom mirror, and having her mother be her champion to turn her strength into a talent. When her night came to perform in front of that large an audience, she could probably have performed “I Dreamed A Dream” from Les Miserables in her sleep. What makes this performance even more miraculous is the fact that Susan Boyle has Asperger’s Syndrome, a form of autism that (among other things) causes people to have significant difficulties with social interaction. While it is possible Ms. Boyle was a nervous wreck that night, one thing she was sure of – she could SING. What are the strengths you are absolutely confident of?

As a result of my research and interviews with my own study subjects, I observed that inclinations toward one’s strengths:

  1. Show up relatively early in life (under 10 years old). What did you to to occupy yourself when you were very young?
  2. Appear in forms of play when we are young. When you played with others, what role did you assume? Were you the leader, or were you a follower?
  3. The inclinations don’t change significantly over time. What makes an inclination into something useful as a strength is the amount of time devoted to it. What gets the best of your time?
