As we begin our coaching journey, there are guides along the way that are very helpful. Gallup Strengthfinders is a proven method for learning to identify your strengths and determine the best career path as well as brand and value proposition. I encourage all of my clients to take either the Strengthfinders 2.0 or Strengths Based Leadership (for leaders).
Here are the links for these. In addition, you can bypass the books and take the Strengths assessment directly.
Finally, I provide an assessment to discover the best career options for you. Career Fitter is an effective way to determine what other careers may be out there that would align with your interests and strengths.
All of this work helps to ensure we are meeting your needs to move forward.
From the Publisher
In StrengthsFinder 2.0, Gallup unveils the new and improved version of its popular assessment, language of 34 themes and much more. While you can read this book in one sitting, you’ll use it as a reference for decades.
Loaded with hundreds of strategies for applying your strengths, this new book and accompanying website will change the way you look at yourself — and the world around you — forever.
“There is no more effective way to empower people than to see each person in terms of his or her strengths.”
From the Publisher
In Strengths Based Leadership, #1 New York Times bestselling author Tom Rath and renowned leadership consultant Barry Conchie reveal the results of this research. Based on their discoveries, the book identifies three keys to being a more effective leader: knowing your strengths and investing in others’ strengths, getting people with the right strengths on your team, and understanding and meeting the four basic needs of those who look to you for leadership.
Find Your Purpose
Sometimes you just need a change of career. You’ve been in the same career for a while and crave change, or perhaps you’re just curious what else might be out there. The Career Fitter assessment will identify career fields that you should consider, as well as many other interesting factors.
