What is the best way to build a successful career?
In my experience, one of the best ways to build a successful career is to build it on your Strengths.
In this video, I share with you a powerful 5 step process to identify and use your Strengths to build a successful career.
For me, a successful career means that I am working on things that I love, I am great at it and I am rewarded well. Most importantly I am HAPPY.
First, what are Strengths?
“Underlying qualities that energize us, contribute to our personal growth, and lead to peak performance.”
– Brewerton & Brook at Strengthscope
Unfortunately, the traditional way of personal development ignored Strengths and focused on fixing weaknesses.
Recall your school/college days or even the last performance appraisal discussion. If you are lucky, the boss may spend initial 2 minutes on things you did well, your Strengths but most part of the discussion would focus mostly on weaknesses and improvement areas. If that happens, how do you feel at the end of the meeting?
That’s why focusing on your Strengths is important and building your career based on things you enjoy doing. This way you can build your career on your Strengths and not waste your time and energy on fixing the weaknesses. This will enable you to operate in the zone of Peak Performance. I talk about it in more details in the video.
The 5-step process to make use of Strengths to build a successful career:
1. Identify your Aspirations and goals
2. Become Aware of your Strengths by using a scientific instrument such as Strengthscope
3. Take Action based on the awareness of your Strengths
4. Be Agile about how you can use a combination of your Strengths.
5. Achievement and upgrade your Goals
