No matter who you are, there are times you either have used or will use one of the Forté strengths.
Forté offers a unique three-dimensional insight into the strengths of Conformity (high attention to detail) and Nonconformity (big picture vision) to accomplish goals in both our professional life and our personal life.
Forté identifies one or the other as one of your four primary strengths and measures how the details or the big picture is playing a role over the most recent 30-day period.
Individuals with Nonconformity as one of their primary strengths tend to see themselves as:
- Very independent
- Unconcerned about the tried-and-true ways
- More concerned with the big picture
Individuals with Conformity as one of their primary strengths see themselves as:
- Expected to be disciplined
You can probably recall situations in which you felt your message or needs could not have been expressed more clearly, when in fact, others misunderstood. Leaders and their teams, share their strategies from page 9 of their Forté reports among themselves as one way to accomplish higher levels of productivity and avoid the potentials for misunderstanding or miscommunication.
When others understand the level of detail you need or if you are really seeking a new and better way to accomplish something, goals are met sooner rather than later.
We’ve now had an opportunity to look at the Forte strengths of Dominance/Non-Dominance, Extroversion/Ambiversion/Introversion, Patience/Impatience and Conformity/Nonconformity.
