Challenge 1: Say it, See it, Slay it
I really want you to become one with your reports: Say it – Know your talents, See it – Envision how your gifts show up for you, and Slay it – Do what you do best (literally).
Review your Clifton Strengths report (use the Insights Report if you have your Top 5 and use the detailed pages about your first 5 strengths if you have the fully ranked report with all 34). Highlight or underline the attributes that resonate most for you. What do you notice? Which details stand out? What are you drawn to do more (or less)?
Send me an email message with your thoughts (a paragraph or two will suffice) by midnight ET on Sunday, August 9th, and I’ll randomly pick a winner for the week. Because #moreprizes.
Challenge 2: Where There’s a Will, There’s a Way
I want you to know that there is always room for growth when it comes to your strengths and you can practice whenever you choose.
Choose 2 strengths from your Top 10 — 1 strength that you easily, comfortably use and 1 strength that you may recognize, but not actively leverage day-to-day. Think about a task or activity that you can engage in at work during the week ahead to flex both of these strengths (safety first in these COVID-19 streets if it involves other people, of course).
You can absolutely focus on your 2 selected strengths separately (i.e. you don’t have to come up with a single plan to use both at the same time).
How does it feel to use these strengths? How easy or difficult was it to come up with something to do? How much did you enjoy the process?
Send me an email message detailing what you did and how it went (a paragraph or two will suffice) by midnight ET on Wednesday, August 19th, and I’ll randomly pick a winner for the week. Because #yesanotherprize.
Challenge 3: Release and Renew
In a society that touts ‘practice makes perfect’, it’s no surprise that we often think that we need to become good at everything. Not true. And frankly speaking? #issatrap Our best opportunities to rise and shine will come when lean into our natural talents.
What do you want to release as you consider your ‘lesser’ strengths? Review your bottom 5 strengths (30- 34) and identify at least 3 work activities that you’re willing to let go (or simply let be) as a result.
Send me an email message detailing what you have in mind by midnight ET on Wednesday, August 26th, and I’ll randomly pick a winner for the week. Because #stillmorestuff.
