Building your strengths profile

This questionnaire is the first step in building your strengths profile. It is based on the work of Mike Pegg, founder of the Strengths Academy.

Please fill it in as if you are observing yourself from the outside.

Also, please ask 2 people whom you respect to fill it in.

If possible, your profile writer will speak to these people before writing your profile.

When filling in the profile, please:

  1. Be honest!
  2. Do not feel anxious if some of the answers seem to be contradictory, in fact feel pleased! Research shows that peak performers combine widely differing skills. Clarifying yours will help you to communicate your unique contribution.
  3. Put aside at least 30 minutes to complete this exercise. It may not take that long, but it is quite a big commitment.
