Day 8: What are your strengths?

41d+2MQkK3L._AA160_As we continue on the journey to discover your calling, it’s time to shift into a discussion about your strengths. We began to scratch the surface of your strengths on Day 5 when we asked the question, “What are you good at doing?” Today we’re going to join the millions of people who have used the Clifton StrengthsFinder to help them understand their talents and strengths.

I have used the online StrengthsFinder assessment for 8 years now in my classes on discovering your calling. It is a proven, valuable tool, and most people find their results fascinating. Here is what the Gallup organization has to say about their StrengthsFinder test:

Gallup research proves that people succeed when they focus on what they do best. When they identify their talents and develop them into strengths, people are more productive, perform better, and are more engaged.

Gallup’s Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment is the first step in helping people identify their talents. Clifton StrengthsFinder results give people a way to discuss and develop their unique combination of skills, talents, and knowledge — also known as strengths.

Gallup created the science of strengths. From more than 50 years of research to our bestselling books, Gallup’s StrengthsFinder assessments have helped millions of people discover what they do best. Start using your strengths today.

So, let’s do it! Find about a half hour of quiet, shut your door, and take the online StrengthsFinder assessment. Click here to get started.
