my StrengthsFinder themes analyzed
Joseph Dworak of Leadership Vision has graciously read my palm, er, analyzed my StrengthsFinder themes. I’ve found this to be the most helpful personal assessment tool to date, b/c it not only tells me how I might do something stylistically, but it describes what I actually prefer to do and do well. And with this brief analysis, I’m one step closer to understanding how to better use my strengths in a leadership and/or teamwork context. Here’s his analysis:
DJ Chuang is the next on the list to be profiled / analyzed based on his Gallup StrengthsFinder test results. DJ is someone I have met through the blog-world. His strengths are Input, Ideation, Strategic, Adaptability, and Woo. He is a dominant thinker, Input, Ideation and Strategic – who can research, come up with ideas (fueled by his input) and a plan to boot. This plan will probably be very fluid – (Adaptability tends to be like that) and changing as things come up. DJ is a good leader in the moment. His Woo as we have discussed will help people get on his side and get going with his ideas.
I see him as someone who might get off track as things come up and take him in a another direction. His Woo/Adpatability combination will help him get people on task with him, especially during events. When things go wrong, he will be like – I expected some things to come up, no big deal. Great to have in youth ministry which I believe DJ is in.
Other things – since he is such a heavy thinker he may have trouble developing people – others may help him with the handholding aspects of ministry. Also, he would need people on his team who are hard workers who can get his ideas done in a disciplined way. He may seem like his head is in the clouds at times, with all that thinking going on – not a big deal but this is where teaming will really help him out.
Add to the discussion about what you think about my StrengthsFinder profile, and how I can best serve as a leader and contribute to a team.
