Idea to Action is the well-worn path of an activator. As someone with a trend toward action, you may already be the one running with an idea even before the meeting concludes.
“When can we start?” is the question the activator is always asking.
Delay is the enemy as you find yourself wondering, “What are we waiting for? Let’s get started.” Some may interpret this as impatience, but you know that action is how important things will get done.
SterengthsFinder is an assessment based on strengths psychology. The fundamental premise is you will get farther by maxing out your strengths rather than trying to improve your weaknesses.
I’ve seen numerous leaders grow as they identified their talents and turned them into well-developed strengths. But you don’t have to be a leader to benefit from StrengthsFinder; it can be applied to more than just work.
Understanding your strengths and weaknesses helps you better understand and live out your unique design.
Activator is just one of the 34 different strengths measured by StengthsFinder. When you take the assessment, you will get back your top 5 strengths. You can pay for an ordered list of all 34, but I wouldn’t recommend that the first time you take the assessment.
Focus is critical to developing your strengths. Keeping just your top 5 in view helps you make meaningful growth in the areas of your life with the highest leverage and impact.
Learn to recognize behaviors when you're over-leveraging your strengths to the point that they become liabilities. And discover the path back to health.
