Today we are talking about the StrengthsFinder® assessment and how it can help you in your career. My good friend Becky Hammond, Founder of Isogo, gives me a mini-coaching session and I promise you that you are going to learn so much! The most important thing about today is that you remember that the only way to move forward is to look inward first. So carve out some time and self-reflect. You will learn how you can develop your strengths more in your work and life.

In the interview above, you’ll see how I didn’t even know how important my strengths were in my work before this session. It was such a lightbulb for me during this mini-coaching session with Becky because I realized that I am drained when I am not using my strengths. Everything I have done in my career to date has been to make the changes I need so that I can be in more aligned to my strengths on a daily basis. I didn’t even realize it and I wish I would have had this resource many years earlier.
I hope you enjoy the interview!
Once you have your assessment results, look at your past roles and successes and identify where you can tie in your strengths. Think about how you specifically use your Strengths in your present role or daily activities.
Then, identify how you can add more opportunities to use your Strengths on a daily basis in your career.
Finally, think about what drains you about your current work. Which of your Strengths are not being used in your current work situation. What needs to change to get you in a spot where you can use all of your strengths on a daily basis?
Also, make sure you check out Becky’s website, www.isogostrong.com, which has a ton of information on how to develop your strengths more in your work and life.
