Strengths Finder 2.0 is a fantastic book designed to help individuals and teams discover their untapped talents.
The StrengthsFinder book is complete with a unique access code, which allows you to take a 30-minute online assessment. The results of the assessment will reveal your top 5 strengths.
After discovering your strengths, you can flip through the book and read more in depth about each one. The book is filled with strategies and insights for maximizing each of your strengths. It also reveals the specific skills you should look for in partners based on their compatibility with your individual talents.
This book is a fantastic resource for getting to know your employees’ and coworkers’ talents on a deeper level than their current job function. StrengthsFinder is also great for learning how to communicate and motivate your team.
Our team’s top 5 strengths:
Nicole- strategic, futuristic, relator, learner, activator
Peter- activator, focus, learner, maximizer, significance
Alyssa- achiever, belief, communication, competition, strategic
Kristin- analytical, relator, futuristic, individualization, maximizer
Mieka- futuristic, achiever, responsibility, empathy, arranger
As you can see above, the five of us have several strengths in common. Out of 34 possible themes, we represent 18 of them. It’s pretty cool that we can work in partnership sharing some of the same strengths. However, it’s equally as interesting to look at the different themes that compliment each other best. For example, activators and strategic people partner well with futuristic and analytical people.
You can purchase the StrengthsFinder 2.0 book on Amazon for only $13.70 (cover price is $24.95) which is such a small investment for the amount of valuable information you will get out of the assessment.
