Last night was our 3rd AHPR meeting. Corinne McElroy from Edge of Change put on a great strengthfinders workshop for all of us. (Thank you to our firm advisor, Kelli Matthews, for inviting her to come). Using the StrengthsFinder 2.0 book and assessment, we each took individual tests before the workshop. My top five strengths are;
Here is a summary I gave about the workshop – “At the workshop we learned that it is ok to have things we are not the best at. I am a maximizer too and I learned a lot about how to capitalize on it instead of letting it get the best of me. I also learned how to focus on what I do good instead of what I cannot do all that well. It was great to get to talk with others and find out how we can all work as a group to unitize each others strengths too. I think we have a great group and that it will be an excellent year!”
It was really fun to see what everyone else’s strengths are and to see how much we are alike even though we all are so different. It was a lot of fun and am so happy we got the chance to participate in this opportunity.
This is one of the slide images and quotes that Corinne left us with…. it has stuck with me ever since. It is so true and hits home for me.
