Part I: Identifying Your True Strengths
This section begins by explaining the tremendous power of playing to your strengths, defines what strengths are, what the 3 elements are that make them up (and the important characteristics of each), and how to identify and describe your unique strengths.
1 - Why Strengths?
This module presents the foundational law that drives the tremendous power of playing to your strengths. Once you understand this law and how it applies to your strengths, you'll know what most never realize...and it's the basis that drives the entire strengths-based performance model. (video: 11 minutes)
2 - What Are Strengths?
This module provides a valuable 'working' definition of a 'strength' and the 3 key elements that make them up. It also provide the critical characteristics of each element. Once you understand these components you can not only clear define your current strengths, but also 'manufacture' new ones. (video: 14 minutes)
3 - What Are Talents?
Talents - the first ingredient of a strength. Our talents define us; they tell us who we are; they are core to our personality. They also define our personal 'strategic advantage' - something that others simply cannot copy. (video: 17 minutes)
4 - Discover Your Unique Talents
Here we start doing the work. In this module you'll take the StrengthsFinder assessment and review your Signature Themes report to understand your 'top 5' talent themes and what they say about you. (video: 1 minute)
5 - Personalizing Your Talents
Here's where your journey continues on where all others leave off. Who says we have to simply accept what StrengthsFinder say about us. Being 1 in 33,000,000 is great...but we can do better. Instead, let's do a little work and be '1 in the history of the world'! In this module you learn the 4 step process of 'personalizing' your top 5 talents themes so they completely and uniquely describe you. (video: 5 minutes)
6 - Identify/Define Our Strengths
This module takes you from your 'personalized' talents (adds knowledge and skills) to your truly unique personal strengths. There's a little magic involved, but understanding and being able to describe your strengths and the value you bring to others is tremendously important. And something very few people can actually do. (video: 10 minutes)
7 - BONUS: 5 Strategies to Mitigate Weaknesses
Strengths are the focus of 'strengths-based performance', but weaknesses were never intended to be ignored. This module covers our weaknesses, almost never addressed in strengths training. It presents the 5 strategies to effectively mitigate your weaknesses so they don't negatively impact your results and will no longer hold you back. It's far easier than most people imagine. (video: 6 minutes)
8 - Part I: Wrap-up
This module summarizes what you've learned and done in Part I, before moving on to Part II. You've already gone well beyond where all others leave off. Now catch your breath and let's continue on. Part II is absolutely amazing! Note: There is not a worksheet for this review module. (video: 2 minutes)
Part II: From Strengths to Superpowers & Mission
This section goes far beyond anything you've learn before about strengths (and adds quite a bit of fun!). Here you'll learn how to develop your strengths way beyond anything you currently imagine - the 4 strategies to transform strengths into real world superpowers - as well as adding how your strengths are the basis for identifying your potential, your purpose (superhero mission), and even your 'sweet spot'. It even covers how to create your (real world) superhero identity and anthem (a.k.a. tagline). It's really your personal branding - your 'highest distinctive value'.

What good is it to be great at something, if you're not getting rewarded in a way that is meaningful (and worth it) to you? This module covers how to ensure you're getting what you really want from what you do...so much in fact that it creates that 'behavioral craving' to continue doing what you do. (video: 3 minutes)
14 - Aliases & Anthems
Okay, this is just Super Fun! This module present the final two pieces around superpowers - coming up with your superhero 'alias' (a.k.a. superhero identity) and your anthem (or tagline). It's also surprising the dramatic positive impact on your self-image and self-esteem that these two things have. (video: 7 minutes)
