about the real talent of the candidates.
This is the section that HR executives should take into careful consideration.
When it combines with many other parts of information such as education
or working experience, it explains clearly how the candidates achieve
their success. And please also note that the strengths that the candidate
chooses are usually in-line with their personality, interest and hobbies.
There are 74 choices of strengths and only 5 will be chosen. Emphasis
is also placed on the strengths that were not chosen. Those unselected
strengths may give a hint of a weakness. However, if employers are uncertain
about a candidate's potential because of the missing strength(s) that
the employer finds desirable, the employer can cover and assess this problem
during the interview.
The chosen top 5 are just enough to describe accurately the candidates'
personality. For example; if candidate A chooses;
2) Good looking,
3) Good interpersonal skills,
4) Good presentation skills,
tends to be a good sales-person.
If candidate B chooses;
3) Positive Attitude/Optimistic,
He/she can be a good creative
in the advertising agency.
If candidate C chooses;
1) Able to set priority,
2) Able to work under pressure,
3) Action oriented,
5) Good leadership skills,
He/she can be a good manager.
If you try our strength list with your co-workers, you will be surprised
that the chosen top 5 strengths of your friends can clearly explain their
talent and personality.
In our Individual Development Program, we also use the strength list in
the Super Resume to find our employees' strengths and weakness for future
individual training and development. Some of the strengths are derived from
our seminar course " Romance Of The Three Kingdoms At Work", where
we learn to describe people's talents. We encourage every HR personnel to
make use of these top 5 strengths so that we can learn more about candidates'
HR executives also have to be careful; sometimes different people may choose
the same strengths, but with different meanings. For example, if a CEO chooses
his top 5 strengths;
1) Able to commit,
4) Positive Attitude/Optimistic,
5) Pleasant personality.
HR executive will know that he is really a good CEO. But if the strengths
are chosen by a candidate who has just started working, it will be interpreted
differently. Most of the time, the beginner level's job requires a more
active type of strength.
of the strength is also important because it can help understand the candidate's
management style. So, by reading it carefully. HR executives can trace the
perception of the candidates and understand their management style that
they lead their life to success. HR executives can also learn the attitude;
what the candidates put first in their rank, and why.
