Transcript of CMC StrengthsQuest

StrengthsQuest @ CMC
discover and develop your strengths
positive psychology
the study of positive emotions & character traits
focuses on what is normal about a person
What if...
We focused on what's RIGHT with you instead of trying to fix what's "wrong" with you?
"To produce excellence you must study excellence.
-Donald Clifton
StrengthsQuest is based on psychological, social and organizational theories. It looks at your talents and strengths.
Let's look at the role "talents & Strengths" play in leadership development and self-assessment.
Self-assessment:
an opportunity for self-reflection and understanding
develop a language to talk about ourselves
looks at interests, personality, skills and strengths, values
does not give us a "magical answer"
talents
a major part of what makes you a unique person...
... direct connection between talents and achievements
"a naturally reoccuring pattern of thought, feeling, or behavior that can be productively applied"
34 Talent Themes
a group of
similar talents
talent x investment = strength
"Developing our strengths rather than our weaknesses will result in a more productive and meaningful life."
Larry Braskamp

with brillance after they have been cut
and polished
