I love taking any kind of quiz that gives me insight into myself: Myers Briggs, DiSC, or even the latest Oprah.com poll. One of my favorite tools has been the Strengths Finder assessment. I was going through my bookshelves recently and came across the five strengths that came up for me the last time I took the assessment over 4 years ago.
Reading through the results, I was intrigued by how accurately those five strengths reflect how I currently think and operate. What’s interesting is that when I got the results 4 years ago, I had no idea how much these strengths would drive where I am today. Back then, all I knew was that I was in a corporate job that did not support my strengths and left very little opportunity for me express who I was and contribute in a way aligned to my purpose and passion. The six-figure job gave me financial prosperity, but with little passion and no alignment to my purpose, it was one of the most frustrating situations I’ve experienced.

I took some time to reflect how each of these strengths has shown up in my current path and how they help me serve the brilliant women messengers I teach and coach.
