So if you recall our talk on manifesting change, we started with creating a vision (see earlier posts). The next step in creating that change is to gain a solid, documented understanding of your strengths.
Their are many ways to do this but the following is a list of possible tools you can leverage:
- VIA strength inventory (google it . It's a free survey)
- Cultural Index, Myers Briggs, DISC or any other personality assessment you may have done at work
- 360 reviews or employee assessments
- Journal about times you have succeeded or have overcome obstacles. Indicate what strengths you had demonstrated in those examples
- Interview people that know you and ask them what strengths they think you exhibiit
- write a list of people (real or imaginary) that you admire. What strengths do you like about them
So pick one, two or three of these exercises and do them. When you are complete, write a list of all the strengths that came up from them. Prioritize them in order of "heat". Which ones resonate the most for you.? Distill your list down to the top 3 or 4. This is your strength assessment.
We will use this as we move through this change process. See the complete methodology here: www.enlivenretreats.com/methodology
Have a great day!
The one constant in life is change. How we navigate that change is who we are. Creating sustainable change is a more deliberate action and gives us the life we want. This is what my practice and my life mission is all about. All of my life experiences, work history and spiritual journey have lead me to this path - to help others create transformation in their lives and live lives that they love.
