Gallup's Strengths

I have had the privilege to have taken the Gallup StrengthsFinder assessment. I believe that this tool has changed my life. After learning about my top 5 strengths, I have felt full of life in all aspects. I have provided a brief description of each strength in the right column of this page. I have explained how each strength has affected me and how I use my strengths on a daily basis in the 'My Top 5 Themes' tab of this section.

I first became passionate about strengths while working at Camp Metigoshe in the summer of 2011. We took the assessment and I have continued to use my strengths ever since. By maximizing my strengths, I am developing in to the leader I have always dreamed to be.

"Enter every activity without giving mental recognition to the possibility of defeat. Concentrate on your strengths, instead of your weaknesses... on your powers, instead of your problems." - Paul J. Meyer 

My Strengths Distribution

Gallup has grouped the 34 strengths/themes in to four different groups. Those groups are: Executing, Influencing, Relationship-Building, and Strategic Thinking. I have three strengths in relationship-building, one in influencing, and one in strategic thinking. With out any strengths in the Executing category, I have learned to surround myself with people who have an executing strength when working on projects. I understand that I can become competent at executing skills but it does not come naturally.
