Your Signature Themes
Your Signature Themes
Many years of research conducted by The Gallup Organization suggest that
the most effective people are those who understand their strengths and
behaviors. These people are best able to develop strategies to meet and
exceed the demands of their daily lives, their careers, and their families.
A review of the knowledge and skills you have acquired can provide a
basic sense of your abilities, but an awareness and understanding of
your natural talents will provide true insight into the core reasons
behind your consistent successes.
Your Signature Themes report presents your five most dominant themes of
talent, in the rank order revealed by your responses to StrengthsFinder.
Of the 34 themes measured, these are your "top five."
Your Signature Themes are very important in maximizing the talents that
lead to your successes. By focusing on your Signature Themes, separately
and in combination, you can identify your talents, build them into
strengths, and enjoy personal and career success through consistent,
Relator describes your attitude toward your relationships. In simple
terms, the Relator theme pulls you toward people you already know. You
do not necessarily shy away from meeting new people—in fact, you may
have other themes that cause you to enjoy the thrill of turning
strangers into friends—but you do derive a great deal of pleasure and
strength from being around your close friends. You are comfortable with
intimacy. Once the initial connection has been made, you deliberately
encourage a deepening of the relationship. You want to understand their
feelings, their goals, their fears, and their dreams; and you want them
to understand yours. You know that this kind of closeness implies a
certain amount of risk—you might be taken advantage of—but you are
willing to accept that risk. For you a relationship has value only if it
is genuine. And the only way to know that is to entrust yourself to the
other person. The more you share with each other, the more you risk
together. The more you risk together, the more each of you proves your
caring is genuine. These are your steps toward real friendship, and you
take them willingly.
Your Achiever theme helps explain your drive. Achiever describes a
constant need for achievement. You feel as if every day starts at zero.
By the end of the day you must achieve something tangible in order to
feel good about yourself. And by “every day” you mean every single
day—workdays, weekends, vacations. No matter how much you may feel you
deserve a day of rest, if the day passes without some form of
achievement, no matter how small, you will feel dissatisfied. You have
an internal fire burning inside you. It pushes you to do more, to
achieve more. After each accomplishment is reached, the fire dwindles
for a moment, but very soon it rekindles itself, forcing you toward the
next accomplishment. Your relentless need for achievement might not be
logical. It might not even be focused. But it will always be with you.
As an Achiever you must learn to live with this whisper of discontent.
It does have its benefits. It brings you the energy you need to work
long hours without burning out. It is the jolt you can always count on
to get you started on new tasks, new challenges. It is the power supply
that causes you to set the pace and define the levels of productivity
for your work group. It is the theme that keeps you moving.
“Where am I headed?” you ask yourself. You ask this question every day.
Guided by this theme of Focus, you need a clear destination. Lacking
one, your life and your work can quickly become frustrating. And so each
year, each month, and even each week you set goals. These goals then
serve as your compass, helping you determine priorities and make the
necessary corrections to get back on course. Your Focus is powerful
because it forces you to filter; you instinctively evaluate whether or
not a particular action will help you move toward your goal. Those that
don’t are ignored. In the end, then, your Focus forces you to be
efficient. Naturally, the flip side of this is that it causes you to
become impatient with delays, obstacles, and even tangents, no matter
how intriguing they appear to be. This makes you an extremely valuable
team member. When others start to wander down other avenues, you bring
them back to the main road. Your Focus reminds everyone that if
something is not helping you move toward your destination, then it is
not important. And if it is not important, then it is not worth your
time. You keep everyone on point.
The Strategic theme enables you to sort through the clutter and find the
best route. It is not a skill that can be taught. It is a distinct way
of thinking, a special perspective on the world at large. This
perspective allows you to see patterns where others simply see
complexity. Mindful of these patterns, you play out alternative
scenarios, always asking, “What if this happened? Okay, well what if
this happened?” This recurring question helps you see around the next
corner. There you can evaluate accurately the potential obstacles.
Guided by where you see each path leading, you start to make selections.
You discard the paths that lead nowhere. You discard the paths that lead
straight into resistance. You discard the paths that lead into a fog of
confusion. You cull and make selections until you arrive at the chosen
path—your strategy. Armed with your strategy, you strike forward. This
is your Strategic theme at work: “What if?” Select. Strike.
Your Responsibility theme forces you to take psychological ownership for
anything you commit to, and whether large or small, you feel emotionally
bound to follow it through to completion. Your good name depends on it.
If for some reason you cannot deliver, you automatically start to look
for ways to make it up to the other person. Apologies are not enough.
Excuses and rationalizations are totally unacceptable. You will not
quite be able to live with yourself until you have made restitution.
This conscientiousness, this near obsession for doing things right, and
your impeccable ethics, combine to create your reputation: utterly
dependable. When assigning new responsibilities, people will look to you
first because they know it will get done. When people come to you for
help—and they soon will—you must be selective. Your willingness to
volunteer may sometimes lead you to take on more than you should.
