Strengths Finder 2.0

Based on a 40-year study of human strengths, Gallup created a language of the 34 most common talents and developed the Clifton Strengths Finder assessment to help people discover and describe these talents. The research proves that you succeed when you focus on what you do best. When you identify your talents and develop them into strengths, you are more productive, perform better, and are more engaged. These five items are Jeremiah's strengths according to the Clifton Strengths Finder assessment.

 

Input

Jeremiah is inquisitive and a collector. He reads to add information to his archives. He needs to be intentional about sharing and take action with the information gathered. In a role, Jeremiah would lean towards one that supports acquiring new information each day.

Learner

Jeremiah loves to learn and enjoys the process more than the result. He is energized by the steady and deliberate journey from ignorance to competence. He is a catalyst for change and his willingness to soak up this newness can calm the fears of others and spur them to action. In a role, Jeremiah leans towards one with technical competence in a career field with changing technology or regulations, possibly a consultant. His goal is to take one new class a year, but schedule learning sessions on his own for reading, webinars, and the like.

Futuristic

Jeremiah sees in detail what the future might hold and this detailed picture keeps pulling him forward, into tomorrow. In a role, he would be interested where he can contribute ideas about the future. Apparently, he should read more about technology, science, and research.

Focus

Written SMART goals serve as Jeremiah's compass, helping him determine priorities and make the necessary corrections to stay on course. His focus is powerful because it forces him to filter and evaluate whether or not a particular action will help him move towards his goal. Unfortunately, a lack of focus is frustrating and he does not like delays and obstacles. In his roles, Jeremiah is able to function independently and with little supervision. He keeps everyone on point by getting work done as a priority over people’s feelings.

Intellection 

Jeremiah loves to think and engage in mental activity. He takes time alone to muse and reflects and with this introspective, he strives to improve himself. Thinking energizes him, and he takes the time to think and write. Apparently, he should read about philosophy, literature, and psychology.
