The book display on "strengths" provides several books about positive psychology.  SWOSU will be starting the "StrengthsQuest" program from Gallup, Inc. soon.  Finding your talents and developing your strengths provides the path to excellence in life and work.  The Strengths program is all about helping students, faculty and staff achieve academic, career, and personal success.
List of Talents
When a person takes the Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment, he or she may download a report that identifies their top five talents.  Talents are the ways in which your naturally think, feel and behave.  However, most people have not recognized their talents and often wander in life with little focus.  So, the Strengths program provides a starting point for a person.  Once a person knows his or her top five talents, the goal is to add skills and knowledge to turn those talents into strengths.  You were born with talents, but strengths are earned.  A strength is defined as the ability to consistently provide near-perfect performance in a specific task. Finding and developing your strengths is the desired outcome of the StrengthsQuest program.  So, check out this library display today and find out about your strengths - your path to excellence in life and work.
