I was inspired to create a list of things that engage and energize each theme. This idea came from a conversation I had with my brother. His #1 is Communication. While we were talking, I could tell he was in a low moment and feeling overwhelmed. He said he didn't want to talk about it (but I could tell he needed a shift in his energy) so I hacked into his themes without pushing. I merely laid out the bait and said "okay, we can talk about it later, but just give me a few highlights of what's going on." Within minutes his energy mounted as he articulated what was going on. When our call ended (an hour later) he was in a much different place--full of energy, optimism and resolve. It made me realize that with our themes, we often just need to lead them to water and they will drink on their own. Themes are abundant sources of energy if we can tap into them. So, this list is my attempt to articulate the water for each theme. This is just a first draft and I welcome insights to make the statements as accurate as possible. I'm happy to share the revised version with anyone who wants it. (Disclaimer: these are not Gallup sanctioned or endorsed interpretations, but merely my interpretations).
One of the many benefits of taking StrengthsFinder is that we can identify those areas that energize us. But identifying them is not enough. That's why taking the assessment is just the beginning of the journey from talents to strengths. We must learn to organize our lives so that we maximize the exposure of our greatest qualities and minimize our exposure to our lesser qualities. Our programs and materials are designed to help people do just that.
