What Are Strength Roles?

Some people call them hard skills and soft skills. We prefer mechanistic skills and humanistic skills. A strength role is a humanistic skill that is more intuitive than it is learned. Defining your strength roles helps categorize how you think, how you approach your work, and how you relate to and collaborate with your team members. The more you use your humanistic skills, the more engaged you are. As your engagement increases, so does your productivity and general happiness. That’s definitely a win for you, but your employer will be grateful too.


What’s In My Report?

Think of your report as your career coach, guiding you through a process to bring clarity to your job search. It guides you through a series of reflection questions, and gives you the confidence to start your career search. The first step is showing you in detail what your strength roles mean and how they are displayed in a work environment. Just as importantly, we provide insight on how to identify the other strength roles, allowing you to be a better collaborator. We ask you targeted questions to help you build a framework for your career search and give you tips on how to seamlessly weave your strength roles into your resume. The report culminates with impactful and straightforward ways of searching for a more fulfilling career.


How Many Strength Roles Are There?

There are nine different strength roles. Seem arbitrary? It’s not. We did a meta-analysis of all the character traits exhibited in the workplace environment and identified 110 different attributes. We distilled these into nine categories, which became the basis for our strength roles. They are Analyst, Architect, Conductor, Counselor, Developer, Educator, Producer, Renovator, and Salesman. Our assessment questions measure how strongly you associate with individual roles and identify if you prefer certain strength roles over others.


Why Do I Need An Assessment To

Tell Me My Strength Roles?

Strength roles are more intuitive than mechanistic skills, thus they are also more difficult to define. It takes serious reflection to identify and label those things that engage us without external help. Career coaches are expensive, and other personality assessments don't give you specific application for a career search. Our assessment is the simplest way of identifying how you’re engaged at work and how to conduct a career search based on that.


Why This Assessment And

Not A Different Personality Test?

Other personality tests do a great job of telling you what you’re good at. They even go so far as to tell you how you fit in the workplace and give great tips to leverage your personality at work. What they don’t help you with is actually searching for a career. If you’re already stuck in the wrong job, no amount of leveraging your personality will make that job better. We give you the confidence to make a career change by providing practical guidance for conducting a career search to find positions that align with your strength roles and priorities.
