Respond to at least two of your colleagues on two different days by making recommendations for how they might strengthen the leadership behaviors profiled in their StrengthsFinder assessment, or by commenting on lessons to be learned from the results that can be applied to personal leadership philosophies and behaviors.



My results from the StrengthsFinder Assessment revealed that I’m an achiever, harmony, input, responsibility and ideation. Achiever describes my need to constantly achieve something new every day. Harmony describes me because I am a person that likes peace and I avoid conflict at all costs. Input describes me because I am a person that loves to travel the world. If you like to travel, it is because each new location offers novel artifacts and facts. I like to learn about different cultures and the history of every place that I travel to. Responsibility describes me because I am a person that likes to give a person my word on doing something for them and making sure it is done like I said it would be. Ideation describes me because I always want to know the why and I like to explain why things are the way they are. (Rath, 2007).

Two core values communication and adaptability. Communication, I find it easy to put my thoughts into words. I am a good conversationalists and presenters. Adaptability, I go with the flow and take things as they come and discover the future one day at a time. Two strength’s communication and achiever. Communication I am a good conversationalist and presenter. I also find it easy to put my thoughts into words. Achiever I find satisfaction in being productive and busy.  If I feel like I haven’t achieved anything by the end of the day I feel dissatisfied. Two characteristics harmony and input. Harmony, I don’t like conflict, I enjoy being able to come to a mutual agreement like adults. Input, I look for areas of agreement because here is little to be gained from conflict and friction, so I seek to hold these to a minimum.
