As noted on Gallup’s home page, the Clifton StrengthsFinder identifies what we naturally do best. It provides customized results that name our unique talents. It shows us how to succeed by turning our talents into strengths.  Here are the “power and edge” of my talents, according to the StrengthsFinder:

Achievers love to complete tasks, and they derive fulfillment from their accomplishments. Putting it simply, people with high Achiever have a strong inner drive — an innate source of intensity, energy, and power that enables them to push hard to get things done. As a result, they often set the pace and define productivity levels for the people around them.

Those individuals exceptionally talented in the Futuristic theme are visionaries. Their emotional anticipation and visualization of a better future can inspire them and others to make that dream a reality. Their vision of tomorrow can push them and others to new heights.

Those with Analytical talents have valuable insights because they are able to uncover the essential facts needed for excellence in any endeavor. This type of thinking helps them and others become clearer about what excellence is and how it can be attained.

While others start to wander down divergent avenues, people with strong Focus talents stay on the main road. They help others avoid time-consuming distractions and keep everyone on point.

People with strong Competition talents have the ability to stimulate themselves and others to a higher standard of performance. They can raise a group’s achievement level by creating a culture of winning and an aspiration to be the best.
