Applying your Strengths in College
According to the StrengthsQuest book by Donald Clifton Ph.D., Edward “Chip” Anderson Ph.D., and Laurie Schreiner Ph.D., they suggest the following to develop your academic strengths in college:
- Define college success in terms of maximizing your talents through strengths development. Defining your college success in terms of identifying and building upon your greatest talents emphasizes building yourself into a person of excellence.
- Select classes on the basis of your talents and strengths. By asking yourself (a) Which of my talents will I be able to apply in the class? and (b) What strengths will this class help me create?
- Consider your talents when selecting extracurricular activities. Seek opportunities to build on your talents in strengths development such as forming relationships with professors and students who share your talents.
- Choose your college jobs by considering the opportunities they provide to develop strengths by following your talents. Employment during college presents opportunities to build on your talents.
