21 Jul You May Not Know This…
You may not know this, but our founder Scott Dinsmore was a huge fan of the StrengthsFinder 2.0 test. In fact, he mentions how much he loves the book and the test at the 3:58 mark of his amazing TED talk.
As a fun walk down memory lane and to see how powerful this stuff is, here were Scott’s Top 5 Strengths. See if they resonate with you.
People who are especially talented in the Achiever theme have a great deal of stamina and work hard. They take great satisfaction from being busy and productive.
People who are especially talented in the Positivity theme have an enthusiasm that is contagious. They are upbeat and can get others excited about what they are going to do.
People who are especially talented in the Maximizer theme focus on strengths as a way to stimulate personal and group excellence. They seek to transform something strong into something superb.
People who are especially talented in the Input theme have a craving to know more. Often they like to collect and archive all kinds of information.
People who are especially talented in the Discipline theme enjoy routine and structure. Their world is best described by the order they create.
Wow, that gives us chills with how well it described Scott. You can see how those strengths combined together to form such a powerhouse! His Top 5 strengths were in complete alignment with his mission of spreading the Live Your Legend message around the world! Truly Pillar 4 work!
Changing the world is the result of first knowing who we are and where our strengths lie. The foundation of all things Live Your Legend!
Remember the Live Your Legend 4 Pillar Framework? Here’s a quick reminder.
Pillar 1. Become a self expert.
Pillar 2. Do your impossible.
Pillar 3. Surround Yourself With Passionate People
Pillar 4. Do Something That Matters: Lead, Give, Serve
Knowing where your strengths lie is firmly in the Pillar 1 bucket of living your legend.
Have you ever taken the StrengthsFinder test?
Of the 34 unique strengths they identified, do you have an idea of what your top 5 are and how to use them to live your legend?
If not, we highly recommend taking the test. Let’s be real. Changing is hard to do. Trying to fix our weaknesses is even harder.
But what if we skipped over those weaknesses and focused more on contributing with our strengths?
StrengthsFinder identifies where we shine as individuals so that we can build our life and career around our natural strengths. That’s far easier and more effective than fixing our weaknesses. We also begin to appreciate the natural strengths in others and how we complement each other. That’s when the magic happens!
We have no affiliation with Gallup or StrengthsFinder. We just think it’s one of the most valuable data sets to support your Pillar 1 progress.
If you’ve already taken the StrengthsFinder test and know your Top 5, we have something special for you! And if you haven’t yet, the offer still stands. 🙂
After taking the StrengthsFinder test, most people are amazed by how well their results describe how they feel inside. But there are often some lingering questions:
What do I do with this knowledge?
That’s where StrengthsEngage comes in.
StrengthsEngage is an online coaching package that helps you answer the “Now what?” question. It helps you dig into deep specifics around your individual Top 5 strengths and how you can use them more effectively to make your specific mark on the world.
Individual coaching to explore your Top 5 Strengths typically runs about $200 per hour for a dedicated coach. It usually takes a couple hours to do a deep dive on your particular strength profile and how you can apply them, so you’re looking at a $400 bill to make this kind of progress.
The ingenious thing StrengthsEngage has done is use technology to dramatically lower the cost of gaining these insights.
StrengthsEngage typically sells this coaching package to large, Fortune 500 companies for $179.00 per person.
But because we’ve made friends with their team and they believe in the Live Your Legend mission, they’re offering us something special.
We talked them down to only $119 for the exact same coaching package the Fortune 500 companies pay way more for!
It’s like we’re sneaking you backstage and you’re paying less than the big boys. 🙂
