StrengthsFinder Coaching with C3

StrengthsFinder is a tool that I have been using to help people understand their strengths. Developed by Gallup, it is an assessment that identifies naturally recurring patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that can be productively applied; Gallup identifies these as talents. When a person invests (or gains knowledge and skills) in their talents, they become strengths. A strength is the ability to provide consistent, near-perfect performance in a given activity.
I had the opportunity to do a coaching session with volunteers from C3. C3 stands for Community Culture Change. They are a nonprofit based in the East Los Angeles community that wants to engage local culture and inspire systemic and personal change (www.c3center.org). I worked with a handful of their volunteers to highlight and encourage them in their personal strengths. It was blessed time of clarifying strengths and brainstorming strategies to develop their talents into strengths.
Scripture highlights that we are, “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). In Ephesians 2:10, Paul describes us as, “God’s workmanship.” The English word translated as “workmanship” is actually the Greek word “poiema”. That is where English gets the word, poem. We are God’s poem. We are God’s beautifully and masterfully crafted poem. StrengthsFinder asks us to embrace our strengths and find environments where you can consistently and frequently use your strengths. Scripture asks us to embrace our identity as God’s creation and become stewards of our abilities and resources. When we overlay the two, we see the principle of stewardship and the practical expression of strengths; we receive clarification on our earthly calling.
If you are curious what your strengths are, contact me and I can send you a purchase link that will generate a personal code to access the assessment. If you need more clarification after you take the assessment, we can set up an appointment for personal StrengthsFinder coaching.
