Top 10 StrengthsFinder Questions & Answers | The Best of Isogo TV Season 1 All in One Place {5 of 5}

StrengthsFinder 5 of 5 Q&A

The StrengthsFinder can be both elating and dumbfounding—providing answers to your greatest unknowns and bringing up questions you had never thought to ask. Over the past 10 years or so, I have been hit up with a variety of questions about the StrengthsFinder, Clifton Strengths, and the Strengths perspective.

Many of the same Qs come up time and again, and I love hearing the process evolve for each person whose life has been changed (or is about to be!) by uncovering this language for their most natural Talents.

This past year, as we shot the Isogo TV | Live & Work Your Strengths Video Podcast, I have answered many of these questions, in addition to the new ones I have heard from you along the way.

Today, in our final Round-Up of the Isogo TV First Season, we are putting all of your Qs in one place and giving you the Top 10 most frequently asked Qs about StrengthsFinder and the Strengths perspective.

These are typically shorter vids that jump right into answering that Q for you. So choose those of your own quandary…and enjoy! See the Top 10 here or jump down below for the details about each episode.

  1. How do I know my Strengths?
  2. Will my StrengthsFinder results change?
  3. What if I have been told these “aren’t strengths”?
  4. Does the Order of my StrengthsFinder Top 5 matter?
  5. What if I don’t like my StrengthsFinder Top 5 Strengths?
  6. Is StrengthsFinder a Hiring Tool?
  7. Can my StrengthsFinder Strength also be my weakness?
  8. Are my StrengthsFinder 28-34 my weaknesses?
  9. Isn’t StrengthsFinder an excuse to suck?
  10. What if one of my weaknesses gets in the way of using my Strengths?

Of all the questions I have been asked, the one I answer in this first video below is my favorite. It was new to me this year and made me laugh and reflect on the power (and struggle!) of StrengthsFinder in a team.
