StrengthsFinder: Choose five different strengths. Using the information in your motivation chapter, discuss how to differentially motivate these individuals.

Using a strengths-based philosophy, Karly’s counsellor used the SFA to focus on her strengths and uncover her unique talents, knowledge and skills. By taking the SFA, Karly can see how her strengths can be applied in her work, daily life and how she relates to people. From a Positive Psychology perspective, the SFA will help Karly see her talents and make connections between her themes and past and present behavior (Workuno, 2014) The dominant themes will help Karly to see how they impact her behaviour and performance and how she can use those to her advantage when she returns to work. Focusing on strengths, Karly and the counsellor can look at ways she can practice her strengths in an optimal and accelerated way, possibly in a new
The StrengthsQuest assessment allows individuals to identify their core strengths based on the answers to the questionnaire. After taking the assessment, my five themes include: adaptability, responsibility, strategic, relator, and maximizer. After better understanding these themes and how they relate to my life, I can connect them with my personal and work life. Adaptability
According to the Gallup findings on my Strengths Finder Assessment, I tend to go with the flow and take things as they come (adaptability), and enjoy life and the beauty in it, as well as avoid unnecessary stress for self and others (Gallup). I remember once in a social assignment that I was heading, where I was required to lead a team to come up with ideas on how to improve a church outreach program. As the leader, I wanted everything to work out well in consideration of timeliness, quality, and in involving all team members to feel ownership and participation throughout the process. By identifying these three characteristics (timeliness, quality, and involvement), my strengths of adaptability, strategy, relator,
Nevertheless, it is the way that friction is approached that makes a difference. By applying my positive attitude and sense of finding a common ground among coworkers, it will enable me to apply this strength to my daily life. Lastly, the strength of achiever was a lesser theme for me compared to my other top strengths. I sometimes take on too many tasks and want to accomplish many things in order to make me feel good about myself. I am extremely committed to everything I do and influence others to succeed in what they do.
Are your strength or problem-focused? I considering myself a strength focus (strengths-bases approach), because the person or an organization is presented with a problem that need to be solve. Therefore, for strengths-based approaches or strengths-based approaches is the best method since it concentrates on the inherent strengths of individuals, families, groups, and organizations, deploying personal strengths to aid recovery and empowerment. To focus on health and well-being is to embrace an asset-based approach where the goal is to promote the positive (Toner, 2016).

Introduction “Soft skills get little respect, but will make or break your career.” This popular quote from Peggy Klaus certainly gives an idea of the importance of these soft skills in one’s career. Also in Stephen Covey’s book ‘The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People’ he states that in his career spanning more than 25 years in business, university and other fields, he has come in contact with several individuals who have achieved pinnacles of outward success but somehow have found themselves struggling with an inner hunger which includes a need for personal development and developing a healthy as well as effective growing relationship with people, (Covey, 1989). Directly or indirectly he explained the importance of these skills. One may question what does actually mean by this term, well soft skills can be defined as personal characteristics that enable an individual to interact effectively and harmoniously with other individuals.
