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).

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.

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. Yet, I need to learn how to prioritize certain goals and put things to the

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.
