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.

Hi! My name is Kallie Eberling. I’m excited to be continuing my education this year at Concordia! I have finally decided, after changing my mind multiple times, on an English Education major. I hope to obtain a minor in Political Science, and I am thinking about law school upon graduation.

I’m from the small town of Plentywood, Montana. It’s located about 10 minutes from Canada and 15 minutes from North Dakota. We only have one stoplight, but we are the biggest town in our county!

At Concordia, I am involved in the forensics team and various clubs. I participate in policy debate in forensics, and really enjoy it!

I’m happy to share my experience here at Concordia, and I hope you can find some useful tips from my blog!
