Strengths Utilized? Then You’re Engaged!

Are your Strengths recognized, valued, and utilized at work?  If so, that will keep you more engaged, fulfilled, and happy.

Workshop Presenters for the Merced College Customer Service Academy took the Gallup Strength Finders 2.0 Survey. Out of 34 Strengths the survey gives the survey-taker their top five. My five are below and numbered in order.
