Tapping Our Natural Talents

March 2, 2012

We live in a world that focuses on fixing our weaknesses – just think of all the self help sites, books and programs. LCWA decided to turn things around and look at the strengths of each individual in the firm.

We embarked on a journey using StrengthsFinder 2.0 from Gallup Press to uncover each person’s talents. All of us took a short, online survey to discover our own personal strengths and how to best use them. This week, we shared them as a group to see how we can maximize personal strengths on our client account teams.

We have almost all of the strengths covered, which is great because it shows that we have diverse teams that can provide many talents to our client work. We also found that many of us have strengths defined as Achiever, Responsibility, Strategic and Relator. These traits tie directly to our client drivers – Refreshing, Reliable, Results. Our teams are looking forward to being more aware of individual strengths to provide results for our clients.
