Expanding Your Strengths

Theme dynamics: A deeper dive into your talent themes and how they influence each other

Expanding Your Strengths

Wouldn't it be great if everyone knew and understood their strengths so we could all work together more effectively? Now you can take the next step to advance the strengths mission. Expanding Your Strengths introduces you to theme dynamics and includes access to an interactive Web app you can use with the people you manage and coach. The portability of the Web app allows you to pull it up on your desktop, phone or tablet or on third-party devices. Access the Web app anywhere -- from your own office to a client's conference room to a college classroom -- for coaching sessions, one-on-one discussions or high-level meetings.

This powerful resource allows you to dynamically select theme pairings, see how different talent themes combine and complement each other, and explore the StrengthsFinder talent themes one by one. Take your relationships to the next level. Use this book and Web app to create stronger teams, coach friends and associates, and develop your employees.

To get the full benefit of this book and accompanying Web app, you will have already taken the Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment and received your results. If you haven't taken StrengthsFinder and would like to purchase a code to take the assessment, go to the Gallup Strengths Center.
