Strengths Finder
Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What's a sundial in the shade?
-Ben Franklin
Using our strengths in 2014
At work, I have the opportunity to do what I do best, every day.
Often, we take the path of MOST resistance.
We do it because we love watching:
That #13 beat the #4 on NCAA Thursday
George Bailey go from suicide to incredible happiness
A 5'6 runt, play a single snap for Notre Dame

If you have a dominant strength in the executing domain, you are good at implementing a solution. You'll work tirelessly to get something done. You have an ability to take an idea, and transform it into reality within the organization that you lead.
