In 2019, each of the Purple Ink team members selected a word of the year; mine was stretch. In 2020, we are selecting one of our CliftonStrengths® signature themes to focus on, and we’ll be sharing those with you throughout the year. I’ve selected my #6 theme, Arranger.
“Arrangers are conductors. When faced with a complex situation involving many factors, people with strong Arranger talents enjoy managing all of the variables, aligning and realigning them until they are sure they have arranged them in the most productive configuration possible. Arrangers have a natural ability to orchestrate people and resources for maximum effectiveness. They are at their best in dynamic situations. Confronted with the unexpected, they jump into the confusion, devise new options, hunt for new paths and figure out new.”
I feel as though this strength does come naturally to me, but this year I want to be better about focusing on it and using it to better the Purple Ink team. I have much more to bring to the table when it comes to this strength!
Here are some ways I plan to focus my Arranger theme this year:
If you know your CliftonStrengths®, I encourage you to join us on focusing on one of them this year.
