Then, briefly describe two core values, two strengths, and two characteristics that you would like to strengthen based on the results of your StrengthsFinder assessment.

Answer:

Dicussion 1

I have the five main strengths of Relator, Learner, Discipline, Intellect, and Futuristic. I was surprised by a couple of these strengths but overall these did fit my personality, work ethic, and behaviors. Discipline really stood out to me, I felt drawn to this strength. I love a world where it is predictable and I can make small goals towards a larger goal. I don’t like unexpected changes and prefer plenty of advanced notice of timelines. I enjoy checking off the boxes, always keeping my end goal in sight, and feeling pride in my accomplishments. Relator also stroke a cord in myself. I very much enjoy having a small group of very close friends. I feel out of sorts in large crowds and have to really go against the grain to small talk. However, meeting people and having a network of people to rely on is important to me personally and professionally. Learner is a clear strength as I do find myself always looking for something to help me grow and I enjoy the process of learning. Intellect is interesting to me as I was a little surprised. I actually do not like to have banter with people over various subjects. I prefer to introspectively have a dialog with myself than with others. However, maybe this is a part of the Intellect strength but in a different perspective. Lastly, futuristic is my final strength. I love to plan the future and make goals towards that future I envision. However, I have learned that all plans work out exactly as planned and I have grown to embrace the variances rather than feel disappointment.

I want to focus on the strength of Communication. The idea of bringing ideas to life and making them stick in people’s minds translates to making a lasting impression on people. I could develop this as a leader and leave people with a better understanding of my visions and hopefully inspire others. I don’t necessarily want to be the one that talks all the time, but the one who listens to others, digests that information, and people listen to when speaking. Communication goes beyond a conversation or well written email, “Leaders communicate in speech, writing, actions, body language, and even in silence. Effective communication begins with an awareness of your own style, of how others respond to you” (Broome, and Marshall, 2021). In a leadership study conducted it was found, “the research demonstrated that, for leadership styles, leaders’ communication, emotional intelligence, decision-making, and personal characteristics are important” (Lorber et.al. 2015). Developing this strength would help me become a transformational leader who develops and inspires others through self-awareness of my own communication style and how this affects others perception of me as a leader.

The second strength I would like to develop is Arranger. Arrangers can see a complex problem and figure out how to rearrange that problem into an intricate and well-oiled solution. An Arranger can see the micro and macro elements of a problem. I would like to develop this strength as it would help both at an intimate level of management and as a leader who can not just have a vision of the future, but can see how to rearrange things to make that vision come to life. It would go hand in hand with my Futuristic strength, as well as my Discipline strength. The idea of finding a better way and not being intimidated by the unexpected is a welcome challenge to me.
