Unlocking Your Designer DNA: The unique talents and strengths you bring to the table.

1 week ago by

The ‘Discover your Designer DNA’ workshop series with Leadership Performance Coach, Jason Biggs, is happening in March 2023 this year across Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch. In this workshop individuals will discover how to deeply understand and apply their individual CliftonStrengths assessment in order to achieve their personal and career goals.


Have you ever struggled to describe your innate, natural talents… your strengths?

What does that even mean when it comes to the day-to-day anyway? Aren’t *talents* just those fluffy words we reserve for the ‘About’ section of our resumes?

Based on 30-years of research by Gallup, the developers of the CliftonStrengths assessment, ‘talents’ are our innate and unique ways that we show up in the world, “your natural way of thinking, feeling, or behaving.”

By investing time to understand and develop our talents, we turn them into ‘strengths’, “Your cutting edge. They set you apart and are versatile enough for you to shape and develop them into your secret advantage.”  

Think about the best day at work you ever had. What were you doing? Who were you working with,or were you working by yourself? This is a sign of you working in your strenghts zone.- Design Assembly x Jason Biggs: Discovering your Designer DNA Workshop.

The strengths we’re talking about are the behaviours that support your technical skills and encompass things like:

  • “Adaptability, your ability to be flexible and quickly respond to unexpected circumstances that upset or intimidate others”
  • OR “Input, your natural pursuit to seek and store information which empowers you to make credible and well-informed decisions.”
  • OR “Restorative, you love to solve problems. Whereas some are dismayed when they encounter yet another breakdown, you can be energised by it.
  • OR a number of other top strengths which are found within the 31 other CliftonStrengths themes  
We are most successful when we are able to identify our natural patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving that we can further cultivate into strengths - using and keeping them in mind every day to achieve our personal and professional goals. - Design Assembly x Jason Biggs: Discovering your Designer DNA Workshop.
One way to do this is to ask yourself and/or chat with a colleague through the following questions and choose work that enables the following to occur: 
  1. What do you know you can do well, but haven’t yet done?
  2. What have you done well that you didn’t need explained?
  3. What have other people told you you’re great at doing?
  4. What sorts of activities do you finish and think, ‘I can’t wait to do that again’?
  5. What are you doing when time seems to disappear?

In March 2023 we’ll be running the “Discover Your Designer DNA” workshop with Leader Performance Coach, Jason Biggs in Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch. You’ll uncover your own unique talents and strengths, what they mean, and how to develop them into something you can depend on at work, at home, and in every relationship you have.
