Please answer the following questions about your current position at work.

 
My job allows me to try new things at work.

 
I know what my strengths/ talents* are at work.


Definitions
Strength - an individual's ability to consistently provide near-perfect performance in a specific task (Gallup, 2016) such as leader, empathizer, being positive, having a strategic outlook, teacher.
Talent - an ability to do something either naturally (i.e. you were born with it), with time and commitment (i.e. time spent practicing an instrument), or with fit (i.e. ability to work with certain/ all people). (Gallardo, 2013)

 
My manager knows what my strengths are.

 
I understand how my talent has changed or grown in the last 5 years.

 
I use at least 1 of my strengths on a daily basis.

 
In one way or another, my manager allows me to use my strengths daily (perhaps by allowing me to do my job).

 
I know what motivates me at work.

 
I know my talents can be useful at my organization.

 
My manager actively encourages me to use my strengths.

 
What percent (%) of your strengths/ talents do you feel you are using in your current job?   (Note 1 = 10%, 2 = 20%, etc)

{{var_score}} out of 100. That puts you in the Blue Zone- the highest levels of engagement.

If you are in the Blue zone, you have one of the highest Talent Engagements possible as an employee.   You find yourself engaged almost 100% of the time. Every once in a while, you may find a bud of another way to build talent, but you’re an achiever, and you tend to find it quickly. You continue to find ways to get more from yourself and your company by giving more of what you’re really good at on a daily basis.  

At this level, you have achieved Level 5 Engagement (similar to Level 5 Leadership) and should look at ways to bring others on your team onto the path you have found.  

People in your Zone tend to be seen by others as overachievers, but you just want to experience more, and you’re motivated by more than just a paycheck – and you want others to see it as well. Your manager may help you at times, but there could be more that they could do, and you should look for opportunities to help them build on your strengths to help accomplish company and individual goals.

  You should focus on helping others get to the level that you have accomplished.

  Don’t stop there. Request your personalized activities, challenges and opportunities unique to a Blue Zone TE rock star like yourself.

  Either way – don’t wait. Start sharing your Talent Engagement Success with others – today.

{{var_score}}  out of 100. That puts you in the Green Zone - an above average use of your Talent Engagement.


If you are in the Green zone, you have a High Talent Engagement. You find yourself engaged the majority of the time, but find times every now and then questioning the depth of your talents and if there may be a few other ways that you can get more from yourself and your company by giving more of what you’re really good at on a daily basis.  

The good news… is there is more you can give… if you want to.

  People in your Zone tend to be seen by others as overachievers, but you just want to experience more, and you’re motivated by more than just a paycheck – and you want others to see it as well. Your manager may help you at times, but there could be more that they could do, and you should look for opportunities to help them build on your strengths to help accomplish company and individual goals.

{{var_score}} out of 100. That puts you in the Yellow Zone - the average level of Talent Engagement in Employees.


If you are in the Yellow zone, you have an average Talent Engagement. You find yourself engaged some of the time – but there are definitely pockets of your day or week that you wonder why you’re in the job you are in as it does not challenge, motivate or use what you really could or should be doing at this point in your life. You know there are ways that you can get more from  yourself and your company by giving more of what you’re really good at on a daily basis, but it is not necessarily happening a lot of the time at this point.

  The good news… is there is a lot more room to grow – for yourself, your job and the opportunity starts with you  

People in your Zone may be seen by others as go with the flow and let things happen. You may not feel like you need to bustle to get every opportunity that comes along for you, your team or your company, but by no means are you sitting back and just doing nothing. Experiences at work come along, but they don’t always come your way. Your manager is probably not going to win the “World’s Best Manager” in terms of developing you and helping you get your goals accomplished – but there could be more that s/he could do, and you should look for opportunities to help them build on your strengths to help accomplish company and individual goals.   

Don’t stop there. Request your personalized activities, challenges and opportunities unique to a Yellow Zone up and comer firefighter like yourself.  

You have it in you. Now make it happen.

{{var_score}} out of 100. That puts you in the Orange Zone, which is a lower than average Talent Engagement score.


People in your Zone tend to be seen by others as someone here to collect a paycheck – potentially not very proactive at work. You may want more out of your job, and with life, but it probably doesn’t show at work because you’re just not that into it. Perhaps it has happened over time, perhaps it happened suddenly.  

Either way, it looks like it’s time for an intervention.

  The good news… is that You are the one holding the control – for yourself and your job. The opportunity starts with you .  

People in your Zone could even be seen as lazy, but you may feel like no one gives you the opportunities to really shine. You may not feel like you need to bustle to get every opportunity that comes along for you, your team or your company because it is not appreciated. Experiences at work come along, but they don’t always come your way. Your manager could use some leadership development (as sometimes you may wonder what s/he really does all day) in terms of developing you and helping you get your goals accomplished. There could be more that s/he could do, and you should look for opportunities to help them build on your strengths to help accomplish company and individual goals. 

  Don’t stop there. Request your personalized activities, challenges and opportunities unique to an Orange Zone Jack in the Box ready to spring with potential energy.

  You have it in you. Now make it happen.

{{var_score}} out of 100. That puts you in the Red Zone, a very low Talent Engagement score.

People in your Zone tend to be seen by others as someone who’s a flight risk for the job, and/or really out of place. As in… you are in an accounting job when you really should be looking for jobs in the circus kind of out of place. You may want more out of your job, and with life, but it probably doesn’t show at work because you’re not feeling it. Not one bit.  

Either way, it looks like it’s time for an intervention.  

The good news… is that You are the one holding the control – for yourself and your job. The opportunity starts with you .  

You may feel like no one gives you the opportunities to really shine. You see opportunities but may just give up on them as they normally do not come your way. It’s probable that you’re underappreciated and you’re not sure your manager even knows you exist. There could be more that s/he could do, and you should look for opportunities to help them build on your strengths to help accomplish company and individual goals.   

Don’t stop there. Request your personalized activities, challenges and opportunities unique to a Red Zone Come from Behind player ready to swing the bat to get it started.  

You have it in you. Now make it happen.
