Three Questions to Assess a Person’s Strength

The strength is not equal to linear skills, it's the good combination of character, talent, mindset, knowledge and expertise.

Every person is unique and we all have our own strength and weakness. Knowing who you are or being self-awareness, allows you to become a better person or a higher quality professional. Knowing who you are and how you react and respond in different situations can help you understand and improve the cognitive, relational and assertive actions you take on a day to day basis, understand your strength also helps you to unleash your full potential and better manage your career path and professional life in the long run. What are insightful questions to assess your (or others) strength, not for making a pure self-judgment, but to understand yourself (or others) in profundity?


Do you have a self-aware mind with introspection, awareness of self? Awareness is the light that makes this process easy and smooth. Introspection means "the examination or observation of one's own mental and emotional processes." Introspection is nothing but "Self-analysis." And the capability of being humanity starts with being able to really look and feel inside, "who am I really," this is a not an easy task, but will bring inner peace and from that stage, you are more comfortable to be yourself with independent thinking without following others blindly. We all have the strength within, be self-aware, be able to see our strengths and weaknesses without self-judgement is possible and healthy. Through introspection, we begin to appreciate and love our own inner qualities that were perhaps not recognized before except in times of extreme duress. But often we need an outside incident or influence to help bring it out. Then again without that push, we may never need to know. We never know how strong we are until being strong is the only choice we have. From talent management perspective, discovering a person's strength is neither just about the quantitive numbers such as years of experience or based on the static certificate only, social analytics helps pinpoint to who knows what within or even beyond your organization, based on social influence and action rather than assertion, allow organizations to identify the strength of talented people, and enable companies to target top influencers, high professionals or thought leaders, and build the digital talent pipeline to put the right people in the right positions.


Shall you focus on strengthening your strength or strengthen your weakness? Our strengths are where our natural talents lie, they energize us and point to where we can be most successful - so the trick is to know what your strengths are (realized and unrealized). Until you begin to look inside self to value the strength you never knew you had, you would ponder around: where does such inner strength come from, your mind or your heart? inside-out or outside-in; should you focus on practicing the strength; or strengthening the weakness? It depends on your context whatever pragmatically you think would make the biggest impact. You can't put your blinders on and not identify and own your weaknesses. It is more impactful to work on improving your strengths as this is where you can work in your sweet spot. Strengthen Strengths, and be keenly aware of, weaknesses. Self-awareness mind helps you build on your strengths and improve on your weaknesses. It also allows you to leverage that knowledge to increase the influential outreach for the betterment of others.


Are you making a continuous check to ensure you are on a path to a "better" version of yourself? Continuous "checking" in of oneself so that you can offer the best version of yourself to your workplace or community. A simple question to ask self: What have I learned today? How can I be better tomorrow? It is crucial to getting to understand yourself and how others perceive you. Additional, carve out time with some regular cadence to reflect on what, and how, you have been doing lately. The examination or observation of one's own mental and emotional processes. The cognitive abilities, emotional awareness, and physical realities are the dimensions on how we relate to and  how we view each part of the process, continue to optimize the process and shape the better version of self. In the world of self-help, self-awareness, self-change, there is always one clear issue: the issue of self, you. To be of the balance with our footprint, to create the realities of one’s life journey; it is marked by one’s ripples, reflected in the realities of others. If we really want to know what the inner world is about - to begin with, introspection does help us check on our weaknesses and strengthen our strengths.


The strength is not equal to linear skills, it's the good combination of character, talent, mindset, knowledge and expertise. From talent management perspective, are you on the way to recognize the best of the best, and blend the variety of perspectives into the new ideas and solutions? From self-improvement perspective, self-awareness mind provides clarity, versatility, gives you directional opportunities for personal growth, helps you build on your strengths and improve on your weaknesses. It also allows you to leverage that knowledge to increase the influential outreach for the betterment of others. Focus on practicing your strength, on the other side, you need to strengthen your weakness, if it becomes the obstacle to stop you from moving forward. If you truly want to expand and discover the talent and strengths, and then nothing beats the ritual of us getting out of the comfort zone, strengthen the strength and work on the weakness, improve yourself every single day in the area of expediting of your own choice and become the better version of yourself.
