How to Uncover Your Strengths and Weaknesses
Most people cannot openly tell you what their natural strengths and weaknesses are regarding their personal performance. Sure they have some thoughts about themselves based upon certain assumptions and concepts – but do they truly know for certain?
Enter assessments! Good assessments can put objectivity into knowing what makes a person tick. Assessments can uncover traits about a person like how they communicate, what personal preferences they have, what motivates them, what influences decisions and choices, how much of their potential are they using, and do they have balance for improved decision making?
Assessments can answer all these questions and give more valuable insight into your preferences for life. When a person understands the natural traits they possess – they can then make choices leading to more success in their lives. The unfortunate truth is many individuals have no clue regarding their natural strengths and weaknesses. Then they take jobs whereby they are attempting to be successful – USING THEIR WEAKNESSES! This is the major reason for poor performance, burn out and depression.
Using several key assessments can undercover the natural strengths and weaknesses of an individual. We refer to these as the “how, why, will and can” a person perform in a certain position. This insight has opened the eyes of individuals and their managers as to what was wrong and could it be repaired? Insight is the term I prefer to use in describing the benefits of personal assessments. If a person is lacking this insight into what makes them go everyday, then how will they accurately make decisions and choices to improve their results and performance. Chance or Certainty? Which would you want to use everyday?
