Knowing Your Strengths

Coach James Eves on the importance of knowing your strengths


Knowing your strengths is the first step in being able to sell yourself through your CV, and then in interviews.  Gallup certified strengths coach James Eaves and I discuss how to identify and sell your strengths in this video interview.

If you’ve been brought up not to brag about your strengths, it can be challenging to step into the mindset where you are openly discussing your skills. Instead, we often find it easier to focus on our weaknesses and how we can improve them.

However, in this very competitive job market, we need to be able to sell ourselves.
