Clifton Strengths Finder Survey Reflection

$9.00

From Clifton Strengths Finder Survey, there are a number of things that I have discovered about myself that I never knew before. This survey is a like a self-discovery journey through which I have come to know more about my strengths through the key theme ranked in my results (Rath, 2007). My top talent themes include intellection, consistency, futuristic, deliberative, and responsibility, which are some themes that I have never through about in my life. I have discovered that these are key strengths that I can build on to prepare well for my future, considering that the themes show I have a critical consideration about my future. I consider my five strengths as a part of my arsenal to confront the challenges of the future and strengths to exploit opportunities that come my way.
