“After serving almost four years on the church board, I had yet to fully know or understand those with whom I was working. The extent of our personal knowledge about one another went little beyond being asked to ‘share your favorite movie.’At the initiation of a new church board chair and a new executive pastor, we underwent strengths coaching, both individual and team. Everyone engaged in the process, and I learned more about my teammates in one evening than in all my previous years on the board. It was the most meaningful and significant times we’ve spent together.” Church Board Member review
 
A local church offered a class involving this book. It has been a life-changing experience for me and I highly recommend it to you all. Buying the book gives you an access code to take a test (I love tests). THIS is one I doubt you can figure out and “cheat” on. You have 20 seconds to answer a question, the two answers for which are not necessarily related. Your answers are compiled and you get a list of your top five “Strengths”. I though it was ridiculous until I actually did it and saw the results. Try it for yourself. I think you’ll be amazed. Alyce Faye Sproul
 
 
Very helpful in looking at parts of me that I never thought of as strengths. This is not an abilities finder but helps you to discover and think about your core personality. I wondered why I seemed to always be thinking about all kinds of things and sometimes wondered what good it was. One of my strengths is Intellection which means I like to think about things. It may seem silly but that helped me realize that it is not a quirk but a strength that I use everyday and can consciously use it to prepare for speaking meetings, and more. Amazon reviewer
