How to identify your strengths in work life?

Knowing your strengths is essential when looking for a new job. Every successful job performance is based on strengths and knowledge on how to handle your weaknesses. Few simple exercises that help you understand your strength and their relation to your performance:

1. Exercise feedback analysis based on your results and actions

Answers to these questions will give you ideas what your strengths may be.

2. Ask feedback from others and observe in which activities people especially rely on you or ask for your help

Feedback from others is useful for understanding your strengths. However, keep in mind that one person’s perspective is only one perspective, not the whole truth. If you ask feedback, ask it from multiple sources and look for patterns.

3. Take high quality work related psychology tests and surveys

There are many ways to discover your strengths. Whatever method you will use you should assess them regularly (yearly), because our personality, motivation and skill levels will change over time.
