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 34 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 Achiever theme helps explain your drive. Achiever describes a constant need for achievement. You
feel as if every day starts at zero. By the end of the day you must achieve something tangible in order to
feel good about yourself. And by “every day” you mean every single day—workdays, weekends, vacations.
No matter how much you may feel you deserve a day of rest, if the day passes without some form of
achievement, no matter how small, you will feel dissatisfied. You have an internal fire burning inside you. It
pushes you to do more, to achieve more. After each accomplishment is reached, the fire dwindles for a
moment, but very soon it rekindles itself, forcing you toward the next accomplishment. Your relentless need
for achievement might not be logical. It might not even be focused. But it will always be with you. As an
Achiever you must learn to live with this whisper of discontent. It does have its benefits. It brings you the
energy you need to work long hours without burning out. It is the jolt you can always count on to get you
started on new tasks, new challenges. It is the power supply that causes you to set the pace and define the
levels of productivity for your work group. It is the theme that keeps you moving.
You love to learn. The subject matter that interests you most will be determined by your other themes and

experiences, but whatever the subject, you will always be drawn to the process of learning. The process,
more than the content or the result, is especially exciting for you. You are energized by the steady and
deliberate journey from ignorance to competence. The thrill of the first few facts, the early efforts to recite
or practice what you have learned, the growing confidence of a skill mastered—this is the process that
entices you. Your excitement leads you to engage in adult learning experiences—yoga or piano lessons or
graduate classes. It enables you to thrive in dynamic work environments where you are asked to take on
short project assignments and are expected to learn a lot about the new subject matter in a short period of
time and then move on to the next one. This Learner theme does not necessarily mean that you seek to
become the subject matter expert, or that you are striving for the respect that accompanies a professional
or academic credential. The outcome of the learning is less significant than the “getting there.”
You love to solve problems. Whereas some are dismayed when they encounter yet another breakdown,
you can be energized by it. You enjoy the challenge of analyzing the symptoms, identifying what is wrong,
and finding the solution. You may prefer practical problems or conceptual ones or personal ones. You may
seek out specific kinds of problems that you have met many times before and that you are confident you
can fix. Or you may feel the greatest push when faced with complex and unfamiliar problems. Your exact
preferences are determined by your other themes and experiences. But what is certain is that you enjoy
bringing things back to life. It is a wonderful feeling to identify the undermining factor(s), eradicate them,
and restore something to its true glory. Intuitively, you know that without your intervention, this thing—this
machine, this technique, this person, this company—might have ceased to function. You fixed it,
resuscitated it, rekindled its vitality. Phrasing it the way you might, you saved it.
Your world needs to be predictable. It needs to be ordered and planned. So you instinctively impose
structure on your world. You set up routines. You focus on timelines and deadlines. You break long-term
projects into a series of specific short-term plans, and you work through each plan diligently. You are not
necessarily neat and clean, but you do need precision. Faced with the inherent messiness of life, you want
to feel in control. The routines, the timelines, the structure, all of these help create this feeling of control.
Lacking this theme of Discipline, others may sometimes resent your need for order, but there need not be
conflict. You must understand that not everyone feels your urge for predictability; they have other ways of
getting things done. Likewise, you can help them understand and even appreciate your need for structure.
Your dislike of surprises, your impatience with errors, your routines, and your detail orientation don’t need
to be misinterpreted as controlling behaviors that box people in. Rather, these behaviors can be
understood as your instinctive method for maintaining your progress and your productivity in the face of

life’s many distractions.
“Where am I headed?” you ask yourself. You ask this question every day. Guided by this theme of Focus,
you need a clear destination. Lacking one, your life and your work can quickly become frustrating. And so
each year, each month, and even each week you set goals. These goals then serve as your compass,
helping you determine priorities and make the necessary corrections to get back on course. Your Focus is
powerful because it forces you to filter; you instinctively evaluate whether or not a particular action will help
you move toward your goal. Those that don’t are ignored. In the end, then, your Focus forces you to be
efficient. Naturally, the flip side of this is that it causes you to become impatient with delays, obstacles, and
even tangents, no matter how intriguing they appear to be. This makes you an extremely valuable team
member. When others start to wander down other avenues, you bring them back to the main road. Your
Focus reminds everyone that if something is not helping you move toward your destination, then it is not
important. And if it is not important, then it is not worth your time. You keep everyone on point.
