Recently, our team at Webflow was asked to conduct a Strength Finder workshop via gallupstrengthscenter.com. This was my first time filling out something like this and I found the results really interesting! I think frequent introspection and learning about one’s self is a healthy and insightful practice.
Here is a description of the assessment from the gallupstrengthscenter.com:
During this hour-long online assessment, you’ll see 177 paired statements and choose which one best describes you.
The assessment measures your natural patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving, so when you’re done you’ll have discovered your talents.
After we filled out the assessment we were asked to write up our first impressions.
1. Developer (Relationship Building)
2. Belief (Executing)
3. Restorative (Executing)
4. Harmony (Relationship Building)
5. Connectedness (Relationship Building)
I was a little taken back by the heavy Relationship Building trend but after some introspective time and discussion with my wife I think StrengthFinder got it right. Over all I found the results accurate and fascinating.
I place a strong emphasis on Relationship Building and maximizing the Development of others. I’m also adept at dealing with problems and resolving them.
I’ve considered myself a very strategic and analytical thinker throughout the years. I spend quite a bit of time researching, evaluating, contemplating, and writing out my thoughts before making a decision. The StrengthFinder test does reflect this but not to the level I would have thought. However, I do think it got it right as I care very much for the well-being of others (Relationship Building) before many other things.
Strategic, Input, Analytical, all Strategic Thinking.
I presented my results to two co-workers and had good discussions. One mentioned in the little time we’ve known each other that he feels my 5 Signature Themes are fairly prevalent. We also discussed how our lesser strengths aren’t necessarily weaknesses, but compliment our greater strengths in some way.
I believe my motivation to progress in life derives from Beliefs and core-values. Staying centered is important in making sure I’m sticking to priorities and allocating time to what matters most. Some of my other top strengths are Learning, Positivity, and Empathy in which I feel play a huge contributing factor in helping me get to where I am today.
I feel my 5 top themes are accurate!
