#StrengthsFinder #Developer at #Singapore #NightFestival 


If people were liken to incomplete buildings that are a work-in-progress, Developers would totally enjoy being part of that journey.

Kind of like these little Eskimos that were “building” the wall of the National Museum.

They really look like they are having fun! In many ways Developers do derive a huge amount of purpose and fulfillment in building people’s “buildings”. They have a genuine care and concern for the growth of people around them. And once they see a little progress, they can’t wait to give encouragement to motivate others up another notch.

Like how the definition of StrengthsFinder Developer puts it: People exceptionally talented in the Developer StrengthsFinder theme recognize and cultivate the potential in others. They spot the signs of each small improvement and derive satisfaction from evidence of progress.

I have been on the nurturing end of Developers before and I must say that they have a unique patience towards growth that is quite enchanting.

Jason Ho StrengthsFinder Coach Strengths School™ Singapore

Just did a StrengthsFinder workshop for Adobe legal department and it was serious…. Seriously fulfilling! 
Victor, my partner in Strengths School ™ is also in the group photo standing on the extreme right. 
Looking at the photos, I just have to say that I’m proud to wear my StrengthsFinder strengths on my company polo :) And if I had a dollar everytime someone wanted to buy my corporate polo shirt with their name and top 5 strengths on it…. I’d be a wealthy man. I even have to clarify, you mean you are personally fine with wearing a company’s logo out? Majority would say they don’t. 
It was great to hear that their boss Joe, gave us a very positive and esteeming testimonial! 
Looking forward to impacting Adobe with more great StrengthsFinder workshop!

(Page 2 of 2) Let’s examine some definitions:

Talent:  Talents are naturally recurring patterns of thought, feeling, or behavior that can be productively applied. (Gallup) ‘Practice’ or Investment:  Time spent practicing, developing your skills, and building your knowledge base (Gallup) 'Perfect’ or Strength:  the ability to consistently provide near-perfect performance in a specific activity (Gallup)

Using the Strengths formula:
Talent X Investment = Strength

Let’s say talent is represented numerically:
1 = a person who is NOT talented
1,000 = a person who IS talented

To simplify this, let me give an analogy. So in the field of soccer where I will compare Cristiano Rinaldo and myself. Both of us have the opportunity and free time to practice soccer for 10,000 hours. 
Using the strengths formula above:

Jason Ho:
1 x 10,000 hours = 10,000 result

Cristiano Rinaldo:
1,000 x 10,000 hours = 10,000,000 result

For me to reach Rinaldo’s standard, I would have to spend an additional 9,990,000 or 9.9 million hours of practice in the field. Assuming that I practice for 10 hours a day (8am to 6pm with no lunch nor toilet breaks and no football club supporting my income) I would need 999,900 days or 2,736 years to reach his level of 'Perfect’ (success) results. 
By understanding the different results, there should be a consideration of talent involved - how we naturally think, feel and behave. This way, we can be more targeted toward achieving the level of excellence and success in a more effective and efficient manner. Where Rinaldo should continue leveraging on his talent and practice practice practice. While I find an area where I have a 1,000 units of talent and start practicing.

I’ll have a lot more success in the latter and not to mention a more fulfilling journey. 
In the end, I feel the quote should look more like this: “Practice using Strengths, makes Perfect” (Page 2 of 2)

(Page 1 of 2) Practice makes perfect.

It’s been an age long mantra for self-improvement junkies and sportsmen alike.

I took this photo from Pitch Premier Singapore - a football training school. They use this as their company solgan and personally I love it! I enjoy logos and mottos due to my StrengthsFinder strength of ‘Ideation’. But does this hold true for personal development?

I shall attempt to deconstruct. What this motto means is that if anyone puts in the element of 'practice’ in any area, be it in sports, music or even business, you can attain the level of 'Perfect’ or success. And potentially join the ranks of a Michael Jordan, Yo-Yo Ma and Trump. 
But when I consider the philosophy of StrengthsFinder and understanding that each person has different top 5 strengths, I feel the motto should be tweaked. (Page 1 of 2)

Got invited to Gallup to speak with potential StrengthsFinder coaches and share with them my strengths journey.  
Met many educators which was a great encouragement as the future of Singapore children and youth are greatly moulded by them.  
If they can bring back this StrengthsFinder philosophy back to their school, it would be extremely exciting!  
For my organization Strengths School ™, we live our vision: “Seeing every generation live out their full potential”
