“Ignite Strengthsfinder Talents - Your Top 5 Strengths.” Lead Through Strengths, 4 Nov. 2022, https://leadthroughstrengths.com/talents/.
Yucks: Potential Soul-Sucking Tasks and Situations at Work
Lack of diligence or hard work around you; when there's no finish line in sight because it's too far away or it keeps getting moved
Yays: Find Work You Love
Completing lots of milestones, tasks, projects, or to-dos; checking items off the list — you worked hard and got things finished
Blind Spots: How Your Talents Could be Perceived as Your Weakness Zone if Your Strengths are Overused or Misapplied
Work seems more important to you than people do; you might go into "heads-down" mode and become withdrawn from peers; not interactive with team because you're so focused on "get 'r done" mode
Feeding Strengths: How You're Perceived at Work When Feeding Your Strengths
One of the hardest workers on the team; a pace-setter to show others the outputs that are really possible if they get in their flow; diligent employee and teammate who focuses on the accomplishment of goals
Honored: Situations and Cultures that Feel Aligned with You at Your Natural Best
Being given the freedom to control the pace of your work; opportunity to see things through to the end
Insulted: How You Might Get Insulted at a Values Level
Things not getting to the finish line — you get satisfaction when things are complete, so every "restart" can feel like a punch in the arm
