Do you know your strengths? Have you heard people talking about their top five and wondered what they were talking about? In this episode of The Pursuit of Purpose, we’ll uncover the importance of your top five – your Strength Finder’s top five.
What’s the top five?
If you’ve taken the CliftonStrength’s profile, the top five strengths identified of the 34 ranked are your signature strengths. Approximately 1 in 33 million – that’s roughly the odds that someone shares the exact same sequence of the top five as you.
Your greatest opportunity for professional development comes from knowing your strengths and improving upon them rather than focusing on your weaknesses. My guest on this episode – Arica Ohloff – has built her coaching business around helping her clients understand how to maximize their strengths and understand how your strengths work with others in your life – whether it be family, friends or colleagues.
Arica helps me understand how my key strengths influence my life and fulfill the HOW in my WHY Golden Circle. Additionally, we talk about how our strengths can be perceived negatively by others who are not strong in those same areas – and how those responses can result in us trying to hide those traits.
