Unlocking Productivity with CliftonStrengths: How Understanding My Top 5 Strengths Boosted My Work and Life Satisfaction.

I've recently gotten back to working more on my strengths.


I hadn't had as much enthusiasm for my business and for life in general.

I've long been a student of knowing myself, so I've taken multiple personality assessments. One of my favourite ones is the CliftonStrengths.

Invented by Don Clifton, the CliftonStrengths assessment gives you your unique ranking of the 34 strengths that he identified.
- they are your talent DNA, and explain the ways you most naturally think, feel, and behave.

When you take the normal assessment, you get your top five, but it can be helpful to get all of them.

The idea is that, once you discover these, and work more on those strengths, you'll be more productive, happier, and more engaged at work and in life.

My top five strengths are as shown on the mug in the picture at the top of the post, given to me by Keith Baldwin, a certified StrengthsFinder coach.

As you can see, my top strength is "Learner". And I've gotten back to doing this and making it a part of almost every day. How?

  1. Being intentional about having that strength more prevalent in my life and business.
  2. Putting Learning more into the culture of Pro Website Creators and leading the way by dedicating part of our meetings to this and making sure I show up with things I've learned.
  3. I started to mentor some folks in the area of leadership, requiring me to learn how to be a better leader.
  4. Creating a long list of items to learn about in our project management system.
  5. I look at problems more as opportunities to learn since I'm passing along the solutions.

Because I'm doing this, the benefits to me are EXACTLY what Don Clifton said - more enthusiasm, energy, excitement, and the increased ability to bring value to you, a trusted client.

Follow my steps above and you'll also enjoy the same benefits! Of course, you'll have to take the assessment first...let me know if you need a link to it. Highly recommended it, even though it costs a little bit.
