Your Leadership Profile

Do you believe you have the traits to be an effective leader? Perhaps
you are already in a supervisory role, but as has been discussed
previously, appointment does not guarantee leadership skills.

How can you evaluate your own leadership skills and behaviors? You
can start by analyzing your performance in specific areas of leadership.
In this Discussion, you will complete Gallup’s StrengthsFinder
assessment. This assessment will identify your personal strengths, which
have been shown to improve motivation, engagement, and academic
self-conference. Through this assessment, you will discover your top
five themes—which you can reflect upon and use to leverage your talents
for optimal success and examine how the results relate to your
leadership traits.

Many years of research conducted by The Gallup Organization suggest that the most effective people
are those who understand their strengths and behaviors. These people are best able to develop
strategies to meet and exceed the demands of their daily lives, their careers, and their families.

A review of the knowledge and skills you have acquired can provide a basic sense of your abilities,
but an awareness and understanding of your natural talents will provide true insight into the core
reasons behind your consistent successes.

Your Signature Themes report presents your five most dominant themes of talent, in the rank order
revealed by your responses to CliftonStrengths. Of the 34 themes measured, these are your “top

Your Signature Themes are very important in maximizing the talents that lead to your successes. By
focusing on your Signature Themes, separately and in combination, you can identify your talents,
build them into strengths, and enjoy personal and career success through consistent, near-perfect


The Strategic theme enables you to sort through the clutter and find the best route. It is not a skill that
can be taught. It is a distinct way of thinking, a special perspective on the world at large. This
perspective allows you to see patterns where others simply see complexity. Mindful of these patterns,
you play out alternative scenarios, always asking, “What if this happened? Okay, well what if this
happened?” This recurring question helps you see around the next corner. There you can evaluate
accurately the potential obstacles. Guided by where you see each path leading, you start to make
selections. You discard the paths that lead nowhere. You discard the paths that lead straight into
resistance. You discard the paths that lead into a fog of confusion. You cull and make selections until
you arrive at the chosen path—your strategy. Armed with your strategy, you strike forward. This is
your Strategic theme at work: “What if?” Select. Strike.


Relator describes your attitude toward your relationships. In simple terms, the Relator theme pulls you
toward people you already know. You do not necessarily shy away from meeting new people—in fact,
you may have other themes that cause you to enjoy the thrill of turning strangers into friends—but you

do derive a great deal of pleasure and strength from being around your close friends. You are
comfortable with intimacy. Once the initial connection has been made, you deliberately encourage a
deepening of the relationship. You want to understand their feelings, their goals, their fears, and their
dreams; and you want them to understand yours. You know that this kind of closeness implies a
certain amount of risk—you might be taken advantage of—but you are willing to accept that risk. For
you a relationship has value only if it is genuine. And the only way to know that is to entrust yourself to
the other person. The more you share with each other, the more you risk together. The more you risk
together, the more each of you proves your caring is genuine. These are your steps toward real
friendship, and you take them willingly.


You like to think. You like mental activity. You like exercising the “muscles” of your brain, stretching
them in multiple directions. This need for mental activity may be focused; for example, you may be
trying to solve a problem or develop an idea or understand another person’s feelings. The exact focus
will depend on your other strengths. On the other hand, this mental activity may very well lack focus.
The theme of Intellection does not dictate what you are thinking about; it simply describes that you like
to think. You are the kind of person who enjoys your time alone because it is your time for musing and
reflection. You are introspective. In a sense you are your own best companion, as you pose yourself
questions and try out answers on yourself to see how they sound. This introspection may lead you to
a slight sense of discontent as you compare what you are actually doing with all the thoughts and
ideas that your mind conceives. Or this introspection may tend toward more pragmatic matters such
as the events of the day or a conversation that you plan to have later. Wherever it leads you, this
mental hum is one of the constants of your life.


You love to learn. The subject matter that interests you most will be determined by your other themes
and experiences, but whatever the subject, you will always be drawn to the process of learning. The
process, more than the content or the result, is especially exciting for you. You are energized by the
steady and deliberate journey from ignorance to competence. The thrill of the first few facts, the early
efforts to recite or practice what you have learned, the growing confidence of a skill mastered—this is
the process that entices you. Your excitement leads you to engage in adult learning
experiences—yoga or piano lessons or graduate classes. It enables you to thrive in dynamic work
environments where you are asked to take on short project assignments and are expected to learn a
lot about the new subject matter in a short period of time and then move on to the next one. This
Learner theme does not necessarily mean that you seek to become the subject matter expert, or that
you are striving for the respect that accompanies a professional or academic credential. The outcome
of the learning is less significant than the “getting there.”

You are generous with praise, quick to smile, and always on the lookout for the positive in the
situation. Some call you lighthearted. Others just wish that their glass were as full as yours seems to
be. But either way, people want to be around you. Their world looks better around you because your
enthusiasm is contagious. Lacking your energy and optimism, some find their world drab with
repetition or, worse, heavy with pressure. You seem to find a way to lighten their spirit. You inject
drama into every project. You celebrate every achievement. You find ways to make everything more
exciting and more vital. Some cynics may reject your energy, but you are rarely dragged down. Your
Positivity won’t allow it. Somehow you can’t quite escape your conviction that it is good to be alive,
that work can be fun, and that no matter what the setbacks, one must never lose one’s sense of
