JOB SEARCH TIP: What can you do better than 10,000 people? Insights on strengths from Dr. Clifton

15 Aug


As referenced in prior posts, Dr. Donald O. Clifton identified five indicators that can help you determine if you have strengths which you could promote and apply to a new job. The fifth and final is the total performance.

Are you better than 10,000 people? This seems like a provocative and perhaps audacious question, but we all have strengths, and some of those can be so profound we can be better than 10,000 people.

If you’re that good, folks will hire you for that talent.

If you have not found that yet, use the previous four indicators to determine if you’re on the right track. If you make it into a role where you are seeing evidence of the first four indicators, you may be on your way.

Louis Pasteur said that “genius is one or two talents maximized.” Find those talents, work to develop them, for they could make you exceptional.

The posts for the next couple weeks are inspired by a man who inspired me, Donald O. Clifton.

There are training videos on the web site of my faith community and a handout. This content is free:
