Your Strengths

Decades of research has shown that when employees are given the opportunity to do what they do best every day, the effect on individual, team, and organizational performance is powerful. The problem is that most people aren’t able to accurately identify their own strengths and therefore can’t intentionally use them.

Let me help you become more effective, efficient, and engaged in your life!

It was a natural progression for me to think deeply about Gallup Strengths through the lens of my faith, and soon I recognized that the heroes of the Scriptures were operating in God-given Strengths!

People who are especially talented in the Focus theme can take a direction, follow through, and make the corrections necessary to stay on track. They prioritize, then act. 

Focus is my #3. It allows me to have long periods of time with high concentration. The down side (as my family can attest) is that once I'm in "the zone", I may not know anything that is going on around me. My daughters have gotten into the habit of saying, "Mom, look at my eyes!" That's my cue that whatever I'm working on is not nearly as important as what my precious children are going to tell me. It's also an effort to pull away.  When I hear the words, "Mom, did you hear me?" or "Look in my eyes." then I know I've been focusing for a very long time! 

That intense ability to focus and prioritize works very nicely with my Achiever. These two themes sharpen each other. Once my Achiever creates a list, my Focus immediately starts prioritizing what I have to do, and how long I need to do it. 

In a child, you will also see similar traits. I often got completely centered on homework or playing games. I also asked "Where are we going?" many times... and not just in the car. I wanted to know what the family's plans were for the day, where we were headed in projects, etc. Just tell me the path and I'll go for it! 

When I think of Focus, I think of "The Eye of The Tiger"- those intense eyes that can zero in on what it needs. Once that tiger gets his eyes on his pray, they don't leave until he gets what he wants. 

I hope you are enjoying these sketches. I know that I am learning more and more about each theme as I draw them.  Rock Your Strengths! ~Carol Anne
