    Many years of research conducted by The Gallup Organization suggest that the most effective people are
    those who understand their strengths and behaviors. These people are best able to develop strategies to
    meet and exceed the demands of their daily lives, their careers, and their families.

    A review of the knowledge and skills you have acquired can provide a basic sense of your abilities, but an
    awareness and understanding of your natural talents will provide true insight into the core reasons behind
    your consistent successes.

    Your Signature Themes report presents your five most dominant themes of talent, in the rank order
    revealed by your responses to StrengthsFinder. Of the 3


    themes measured, these are your “top five.”

    Your Signature Themes are very important in maximizing the talents that lead to your successes. By
    focusing on your Signature Themes, separately and in combination, you can identify your talents, build
    them into strengths, and enjoy personal and career success through consistent, near-perfect performance.

    Your Responsibility theme forces you to take psychological ownership for anything you commit to, and
    whether large or small, you feel emotionally bound to follow it through to completion. Your good name
    depends on it. If for some reason you cannot deliver, you automatically start to look for ways to make it up
    to the other person. Apologies are not enough. Excuses and rationalizations are totally unacceptable. You
    will not quite be able to live with yourself until you have made restitution. This conscientiousness, this near
    obsession for doing things right, and your impeccable ethics, combine to create your reputation: utterly
    dependable. When assigning new responsibilities, people will look to you first because they know it will get
    done. When people come to you for help—and they soon will—you must be selective. Your willingness to
    volunteer may sometimes lead you to take on more than you should.

    Balance is important to you. You are keenly aware of the need to treat people the same, no matter what
    their station in life, so you do not want to see the scales tipped too far in any one person’s favor. In your
    view this leads to selfishness and individualism. It leads to a world where some people gain an unfair
    advantage because of their connections or their background or their greasing of the wheels. This is truly

    offensive to you. You see yourself as a guardian against it. In direct contrast to this world of special favors,
    you believe that people function best in a consistent environment where the rules are clear and are applied
    to everyone equally. This is an environment where people know what is expected. It is predictable and
    evenhanded. It is fair. Here each person has an even chance to show his or her worth.

    Relator describes your attitude toward your relationships. In simple terms, the Relator theme pulls you
    toward people you already know. You do not necessarily shy away from meeting new people—in fact, you
    may have other themes that cause you to enjoy the thrill of turning strangers into friends—but you do
    derive a great deal of pleasure and strength from being around your close friends. You are comfortable
    with intimacy. Once the initial connection has been made, you deliberately encourage a deepening of the
    relationship. You want to understand their feelings, their goals, their fears, and their dreams; and you want
    them to understand yours. You know that this kind of closeness implies a certain amount of risk—you might
    be taken advantage of—but you are willing to accept that risk. For you a relationship has value only if it is
    genuine. And the only way to know that is to entrust yourself to the other person. The more you share with
    each other, the more you risk together. The more you risk together, the more each of you proves your
    caring is genuine. These are your steps toward real friendship, and you take them willingly.

    You are careful. You are vigilant. You are a private person. You know that the world is an unpredictable
    place. Everything may seem in order, but beneath the surface you sense the many risks. Rather than
    denying these risks, you draw each one out into the open. Then each risk can be identified, assessed, and
    ultimately reduced. Thus, you are a fairly serious person who approaches life with a certain reserve. For
    example, you like to plan ahead so as to anticipate what might go wrong. You select your friends cautiously
    and keep your own counsel when the conversation turns to personal matters. You are careful not to give
    too much praise and recognition, lest it be misconstrued. If some people don’t like you because you are not
    as effusive as others, then so be it. For you, life is not a popularity contest. Life is something of a minefield.
    Others can run through it recklessly if they so choose, but you take a different approach. You identify the
    dangers, weigh their relative impact, and then place your feet deliberately. You walk with care.

    You live in the moment. You don’t see the future as a fixed destination. Instead, you see it as a place that
    you create out of the choices that you make right now. And so you discover your future one choice at a

    time. This doesn’t mean that you don’t have plans. You probably do. But this theme of Adaptability does
    enable you to respond willingly to the demands of the moment even if they pull you away from your plans.
    Unlike some, you don’t resent sudden requests or unforeseen detours. You expect them. They are
    inevitable. Indeed, on some level you actually look forward to them. You are, at heart, a very flexible
    person who can stay productive when the demands of work are pulling you in many different directions at
