YOUR PERSONALIZED STRENGTHS INSIGHTS

 

What makes you stand out?

 

Driven by your talents, you occasionally pinpoint the unique qualities, motivations, strengths, limitations, preferences, or attitudes of certain people. Perhaps you look for one or two good things in each person. Maybe this information permits you to set up opportunities for particular individuals to cooperate. You might compliment those who freely share bits of their knowledge, skills, or talents with their teammates, classmates, colleagues, coworkers, friends, or family members. It’s very likely that you may be willing to juggle multiple tasks at the same time when it helps a person or a group handle a complicated project. Perhaps individuals who do their best work when they can concentrate on one activity appreciate having you as a partner. Instinctively, you occasionally lighten others’ loads by taking on part of their burdens. Maybe you are more likely to help individuals who speak candidly to you about your shortcomings because you feel their comments are helpful rather than harmful. By nature, you sometimes marvel at your ability to personally sense the feelings of other people and experience situations from their perspectives. Perhaps you feel good about yourself and life in general when you put aside your opinions, biases, or preferences. Maybe your satisfaction comes from figuring out why someone behaves, feels, or thinks differently than you do. Chances are good that you sometimes ask people questions so you can collect background information. Maybe the insights you gather make it a bit easier to pinpoint what makes this person totally different from everyone else. You might be fascinated by the diversity of human beings. You might amass enough facts about specific individuals to prevent others from stereotyping them. Because no two people are the same, you try to decipher who works well with whom.

Input

 

SHARED THEME DESCRIPTION

 

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.

 

YOUR PERSONALIZED STRENGTHS INSIGHTS

 

What makes you stand out?

 

It’s very likely that you periodically give yourself credit for being well-read. You might peruse — that is, studiously examine — written materials because you want to, not because you have to. In the process, you may accumulate facts, data, information, background, or insights into various subjects or a favorite topic. Instinctively, you may be drawn to certain types of books, research reports, journals, or printed material that appeal to a select group of individuals. Over time, you might add uncommon words to your vocabulary. Perhaps you feel joy when you read. You may experience satisfaction when using complicated terms in conversations or correspondence. When you speak the language of thinkers, sometimes you can comprehend parts of their theories, concepts, or philosophies others cannot. Chances are good that you may be able to compel some individuals or groups to move into action by using official-sounding words. Your extensive vocabulary might contain hard-to-understand terminology that sets you apart. Perhaps you speak with an air of authority that you fail to hear. So, if you display impatience and say, “Let’s get started right now!” people might refrain from questioning your order. Because of your strengths, you may long to gather certain types of information about specific individuals. Perhaps your “need to know” is rarely satisfied. The more facts you gather, the easier it might be for you to understand someone’s strengths, limitations, interests, likes, dislikes, or goals. You might be inclined to study human beings one by one. To some degree, your ongoing observations of selected individuals provide you with interesting insights into human nature. By nature, you occasionally wade into the middle of certain thought-provoking conversations. Perhaps you speak theoretically — that is, talk about things that have not been invented, proved, produced, or put into practice. Parts of your vocabulary may be as complicated as your thinking. This might explain why you consider at length specific insights, concepts, or philosophies. Maybe you prefer talking with individuals who instantly grasp the meaning of your sophisticated words.

NURS 6053 week 5 discussion, Topic: Discussion 2: Your Leadership Profile

Leadership Profile

Results from the StrengthsFinder assessment

Every person has identifiable leadership strengths, areas in which a person thrives or excels. But people usually fail to identify these strengths. Consequently, many times, people use their strengths ineffectively or fail to use them at all.  Completing a Gallup strength finder assessment can help individuals recognize their areas of strength. An individual’s strengths are key to the personality of the individual (Northouse, 2017). After completing the Clifton strengths finder assessment, the top 5 signature themes of talents that emerged were achiever, empathy, responsibility, positivity,   and harmony NURS 6053 Your Leadership Profile discussion essay.

ORDER A PLAGIARISM-FREE PAPER HERE

The achiever theme assists me to explain my drive. Being an achiever, I always make a tangible achievement at the end of the day to feel good about myself. Empathy means that I can sense the emotions of the people around me and help them express their feelings. Harmony means that I am talented in living in agreement with other people. In my view, nothing good can be gained from friction and conflict, so I seek to hold conflicts at a minimum. Positivity means that I lookout for the positive in any situation and try my best to avoid negativity no matter the setbacks I encounter.   The responsibility theme compels me to take ownership of all the things in commit to and I feel psychologically bound to follow them through to completion NURS 6053 Your Leadership Profile discussion essay.

Strengths, core values, and characteristics I would like to strengthen

The two strengths I would like to strengthen communication and relator.  Strengths are derived from possessing particular talents and then additionally developing these talents by attaining additional practice, skills, and knowledge (Northouse, 2017). I can strengthen the talent of being an excellent communicator by learning about the difficulties of effective communication and seeking the help of a communications expert to assist me develops public communication skills. When one possesses the strength in relator, they have a profound relational capability to develop relationships with all people. I can achieve this by creating a space for the formation of strong relationships. By strengthening the relator theme, I can create the appropriate environment for members of the team to form close, trusting and honest relationships.

Communication and relationship building are two characteristics that I would like to strengthen.  A nurse leader I must be capable of and managing relationships with numerous persons because teamwork and collaboration are essential in the delivery of quality care. Effective communication is essential to the management of any relationship, but they are in particular crucial to a nurse leader who is required to engage in a wide range of relationships. According to Yoost and Crawford, (2015 communication is the basis of the practice of nursing. Communication skills are crucial for the work of the nurse and any other nurse.  NURS 6053 Your Leadership Profile discussion essay. Through the development of good communication skills, the nurse can get information, convey a plan, assign, and asses a care plan. The nurse interacts and develops relationships with co-workers, patients, and their families as well as other healthcare professionals and leaders. Both relationship building and effective communication are important for moving toward and achieving a common goal as well as resolving conflicts.

The two core values I would like to strengthen are altruism and human dignity. Altruism means being concerned about the well-being and welfare of others. Altruism in professional nursing practice is reflected by the nurse’s advocacy and concern for the wellbeing of patients, colleagues as well as other providers. Integrity means acting per the code of ethics and standards of practice (Murray, 2017).  When I strengthen my core values of altruism I will offer support to my followers and encourage act ethically when providing care and to develop caring relationships with each other and with the patients.
