Discovering my Strengths

I have signed up for an initiative by the school that is in alliance with a consulting company that will help me work on the strengths I have.

I took a battery of tests based on which my key strengths were identified.Over the next few weeks, I will work with my coach to see how I can further leverage on these traits of my mine.

The Senior Principal of this Consulting firm was here at Queen's to make a presentation. Some interesting thoughts,points made:

"Do not try to teach a pig to sing- it wastes your time and annoys the pig"

"Each person's greatest room for growth is in the area of his or her greatest strengths"

"Weakness fixing prevents failure.Working on Strengths is the way to road to success"

"Talent reflects who you are, not what you know.
Talent is the capacity for consistent, near perfect performance"

"Strength= Talent + Skills + Knowledge"
