STRENGTHS SELF DEVELOPMENT - ADVANCED
As you further invest in developing talents into strengths, consider using Gallup’s Theme Insight Cards to enhance your understanding, awareness, and appreciation of your talents; the ways you naturally think, feel and behave. Although primarily used in coaching individuals in strengths, we believe these cards are an invaluable self-help tool for examining the subtle similarities and differences of your CliftonStrengths® Themes. While not a substitution for the more detailed theme definitions that come with your Top 5 (your Signature Themes Report), these cards are a convenient tool that tells you something about:
Who a person is [I am (being)]
What a person will naturally do [I will (doing)]
What a person might contribute [I bring (contribution)]
What a person might need [I need (requirement)]
What a person is likely to value [I love/I hate (value)]

Theme Insight Cards
When you receive your Theme Insight Cards, refer to the cards of your Top 5 Signature Themes - or your Top 10 if you purchased all 34. Read the statements on each card and write down the statements you feel best describe this talent in you. Then, write down the 'barrier label' statements. Place this list where you will see it on a regular basis, such as your phone, desk, edge of computer screen, etc. Referring to this list will help you be more cognizant of how you use your talents. Using these cards will help you see the multiple dimensions of each theme and become more cognizant of how you use your talents and develop them into strengths.
One of the great ways to gain insight into your talent themes is by visiting Gallup’s Strengths Center YouTube page and viewing the webcast series videos about each of the CliftonStrengths® Talent Themes. They have a number of terrific webcasts but we recommend you start with the following Lab Practicums and work your way up.
