In 2005 my wife and I took the StrengthsFinder Assessment on our own. We shared 3 strengths in our top 5. They were Intellection, Connectedness, and Individualization. I can honestly say that although the results were interesting, it didn’t really mean all that much to us. Now, ten years later, having gone through a couple of seminars by Jennifer and engaging in her coaching and consulting services, I can honestly say understanding our strengths has had a significant impact on our relationship.
Jennifer helped us understand just what our strengths actually meant and how they interacted with each other. Although my wife and I shared 3 of our top 5 strengths, we didn’t express them the same way. In fact when my wife was acting out of a common strength, but not in a way I would act, to me it appeared wrong. I would not be doing it that way. Now I have a better appreciation as to when my wife is doing something differently than what I would do, especially when she is approaching it from her strength. Jennifer has a wonderful way of bringing these concepts alive and how to apply them in very practical ways. Jennifer is a rock star.
