Grow Your Strengths!

Strengths are your areas of opportunity.

While the results of your greatest strengths report might appear simple, they were considered against a series of seemingly opposite traits which are in fact complementary.  We call these paradoxical pairs of traits.

Harrison Assessments™ is based on Paradox Theory and each of your greatest strengths can be measured on one of our 12 Paradoxes.  Within each Paradox, there are two complementary (paradoxical)  traits.  One trait is a ‘dynamic’ trait such as authoritative, while the other is a ‘gentle’ trait such as collaborative.

By uncovering the traits that make up each of your greatest strengths, you have the opportunity to further develop these traits and grow your strengths.  We’ll give you the road map to do so.

We’ve packaged our strengths development packages to include development opportunities for each of the traits that make  up your greatest strengths.  Learn More >

helpful-tips
Before you pick a development package, let’s jump into a strength so you can understand our development recommendations.


Strength:             Engaging in Participative Management
Paradox:              Delegation
Traits:                   Authoritative, Collaborative

The paradox on this page is called Delegation which we describe as how you approach self-responsibility and collaboration.   This paradox is made up of the following complementary traits:  authoritative (the desire for decision-making authority and the willingness to accept decision making responsibility) and collaborative (the tendency to collaborate with others when making decision).  So in order to grow this strength, it is important to develop the traits that make up this strength.

“Never hesitate to take counsel from appropriate people, but always take full responsibility for your own decision.”

Even small growth of a trait can create significant improvement.
