These are the results of the Leadership Strength Finder test that I took. Very interesting! I agree with the overall picture it gives me as a someone who is relational in my leadership style, a connector, empathetic loves developing ideas and is adaptable to situations.

Strengths-Based Leadership Report
SURVEY COMPLETION DATE: 12-28-2010
Leader:David McKinney
Gallup found that it serves a team well to have a representation of strengths in each of the four domains of leadership strength: Executing, Influencing, Relationship Building, and Strategic Thinking.Instead of one dominant leader who tries to do everything or individuals who all have similar strengths, contributions from all four domains lead to a strong and cohesive team. This doesn't meanthat each person on a team must have strengths exclusively in a single category. In most cases, eachteam member will possess some strength in multiple domains. According to our latest research, the 34 Clifton StrengthsFinder themes naturally cluster into thesefour domains of leadership strength. See below for how your top five themes sort into the four domains. As you think about how you can contribute to a team and who you need to surround yourself with, this may be a good starting point.
