Strengths Finder

What Is Strengths Coaching and Why Is It Important?

In Gallup’s research into human potential over the past 30 years—including interviews with more than 8 million people—the evidence is overwhelming:  You will be six times more successful & fulfilled in whatever you do by building your life around your greatest natural abilities (strengths) rather than your weaknesses.  Your strengths should be your primary focus. 

The problem is that most people don’t even know what their greatest strengths are much less how to use them so they can be more fulfilled and effective in their lives.

According to Gallup’s latest study, over half of churchgoers say they don’t get to do what they do best in their congregations. Many remain disengaged as a result.

Fortunately, Gallup’s research led it to developing one of the most effective tools for discovering and utilizing a person’s top strengths, called StrengthsFinder.  This assessment tool identifies a person’s natural preferences – your brain is wired with these specialized ways of doing what you do best.  And when you use them, you are far more fulfilled, productive, and energized; and far less stressed, drained, and disempowered.

And when used in a congregation, this discovery has the potential of unlocking a congregation’s most powerful resource:  people and their God-given strengths.
