A StrengthsFinder 2.0 Example - Learner
Uncovering my top five strengths via this assess-
ment was a joy because, as I discovered, my top
theme is Learner. The steady and dependable process
of learning, combined with the knowledge and often
skills mastery that accompanies learning, elicits a
"natural high" for me. The Learner strength is not
necessarily driven by the subject matter learned, but
rather the energizing process of attained competency
and enlightened knowledge. Of course, learning about
a passionate interest, as in my case a lifelong interest
in careers and career development, increases the
pleasure and satisfaction tremendously.
Some Learners refine their learning process through
teaching and presentations. That is certainly true for
me. Other Learners may gravitate to quiet reflection
as a means of integrating new learning. In either
case, Learners soak up "newness" and are often the
early-adopters of cutting-edge technology, informa-
tion, and trends.
What Are Your Strengths?
Professional growth is key to career development
is this new world of work. Self-awareness is the first
step in determining what direction that professional
growth could take. By gaining insight into your
strengths, you can equip yourself to make the most
of your natural talents as you either look for a new
career or job, or enhance the job you already have.
So why not start today?
The access code for this easy-to-take online assess-
ment is available in the back of the StrengthsFinder
2.0 book. Your assessment results are delivered via
the StrengthsFinder 2.0 report, which includes per-
sonalized Strengths Insight descriptions, 50 Ideas
for Actions based on your top five themes, a
Strengths-based Action Plan, and numerous online
Knowing your strengths will lead you to a more
satisfying job in this job search and will help you
find your best career fit for long term job and career
As you search for a new job, the choices available
are both mind-boggling and confusing. Hopefully,
your next job will advance you another step in the
best career direction for you, but how do you know
which direction to choose now? Focus on your
Your strengths play a key role in determining what
careers may be best for you, as well as for your career
growth. Without a clear understanding of these
central assets in your career life, you could end up
totally disenchanted and disengaged from your job.
That would not bode well for your career future, or
for the future of our society.
According to studies by Gallup conducted over 10
years, as cited by Tom Rath in StrengthsFinder 2.0
(Gallup Press, 2007), only one-third of employees
surveyed "strongly agreed" that "At work, I have the
opportunity to do what I do best every day."
The two-thirds of the workplace who do not feel
this way are at a significant disadvantage in both
their career and personal lives. Again, according to
Gallup's studies, those workers who are able to use
their strengths every day are "six times as likely to
be engaged in their jobs and more than three times
as likely to report having an excellent quality of life
What Is the StrengthsFinder Assessment?
Your strengths are your natural talents multiplied
by knowledge, skills and practice gained over time.
This is the definition according to Donald Clifton, a
pioneer in the Psychology of Strengths and the creator
of the Clifton StrengthsFinder (precursor to Strengths-
Finder 2.0). Using Gallup's research database, Clifton's
team of scientists identified 34 strengths themes and
developed the first strengths instrument to assess
"By gaining insight into your strengths, you can
equip yourself to make the most of your natural
talents as you either look for a new career or
job, or enhance the job you already have."
