Strengths Finder 2.0
Posted on Saturday, December 19th, 2015 by Kallie Eberling
At the end of the week, before I left for home, the advisor of the Orientation Committee, that I serve a part of, Amanda Pieters, gave each of the committee members a book titled Strengths Finder 2.0. The book was created by Gallup, a company who focuses on research and global performance.
The book includes a specific code which allows the owner to log into a website and take a personality type test. The assessment is made to help people uncover their talents. After the 35 minute test is completed the user will be given their top 5 strengths. Each of the 34 strengths are listed in the book along with a description of what exactly possessing that particular strength means. The book also describes ways to utilize the strengths.
I am excited for after break when the Orientation Committee will get back together. We will all have taken the test and then can share our strengths with each other. This way we will be able to notice each others strengths and help each other to build upon them.
