Your strengths are ultimately the keys to your success.
Understanding, and playing to, your greatest strengths creates an important reinforcing cycle :
- by enjoying what you do you’re motivated to learn and gain more experience
- which leads to gaining recognition and praise for your performance
- for which you ultimately get rewarded for!
Developing your strengths is more productive than correcting weaknesses; it’s the most powerful means you have of moving your career forward.
Most people have a rough idea of what they are good at, however Career Navigator identifies between 5 and 7 of your greatest strengths and describes each in detail. Being able to clearly identify and articulate your strengths in relation to a job or career makes:
- your CV stand out with a clear and concise personal statement, providing greater credibility and demonstrating self-awareness
- job interviews more comfortable and less stressful, as you can give examples of previous achievements that utilised your strengths
- exploring and matching suitable career options easier to evaluate
