Strengths Finder Results

SURVEY COMPLETION DATE: 10-04-2016

Your Theme Sequence report presents the 34 themes of talent, in the rank order revealed by your
responses to StrengthsFinder. Your Signature Themes, the five most dominant, are listed first.

Your Theme Sequence can be helpful to you in exploring beyond your Signature Themes. By
leveraging the themes of talent toward the top of your sequence, you can enjoy personal and career
success through consistent, near-perfect performance.

The themes toward the bottom of your sequence are likely to be less apparent in your day-to-day
behaviors. Sometimes they reflect what people don't enjoy or think about very much.
