Your Whole Person Strengths
These are your starting top 5 Whole Person Skills, measured before coaching

Thriving as an Individual

You have the ability to get “in the zone” at work. Balancing your skills with the challenges you take on allows you to become fully immersed in your work, be creative, and love what you do. Those with a flow as a strength:

Can focus for long periods of time on a single project
Might lose track of time when they’re particularly absorbed
Enjoy periods of uninterrupted work
Inspiring as a Leader

You guide and support others’ development. You have the ability to provide insight and resources to support the growth and development of others, guiding, correcting and encouraging so they can be their best. The best managers are great coaches, so you’re well placed to lead a team. This might mean you:

Provide opportunities for others to learn and develop
Encourage others to set performance and career goals
Ask open-ended questions to stimulate others’ thinking
Inspiring as a Leader

You’re motivated by your work, and your passion is contagious. Your ability to get others excited about their work helps keep your team moving towards their goals. Some common skills of strong motivators include:

Express energy and passion for your work to others
Communicate an inspiring vision for the future
Share the core values that drive your behavior and decisions
Inspiring as a Leader

You provide constructive and accurate feedback in a way that supports growth. You understand that people are motivated to perform better when they receive regular feedback that focuses on opportunities. Others may depend on you to:

Provide regular, actionable feedback that helps improve team member performance
Help others identify and leverage their strengths
Help your organization or team track progress toward goals
Problem Solving
Inspiring as a Leader

You are able to look strategically at problems and identify the best path forward, balancing tradeoffs and incorporating varied perspectives. This makes you a valuable planner, and indispensable when your team veers off track. Those strong in problem solving typically:

Encourage open discussions to find the best possible solution to problems
Develop an effective strategy to achieve results
Collect all relevant information before making decisions
Tip: Consider how you use your strengths. Do you need to dial them up or do you over-rely on them? Discuss this in session with your coach.

How to Interpret Your Whole Person Strengths Report
Thriving as an Individual
The psychological resources that help you learn, adapt, and connect with others.

Inspiring as a Leader
Leadership skills that have been shown to help you drive innovation, employee engagement, and business results.

Scores are based on a standardized 60 point scale, with 60 being the highest and 30 the average.

41-60: Strength
21-40: Potential strength
0-20: Development area
What is the origin of these 25 skills?
The concepts included in the Whole Person Model were derived from decades of academic research in the fields of organizational, developmental, and positive psychology. BetterUp’s Science Board identified the top 25 concepts with the strongest research evidence for supporting personal Thriving and Inspiring others. We believe that everyone is a whole-person no matter where they score in these 25 areas. Rather, the term “whole person” is a reference to our belief that sustainable personal growth comes from changing your attitudes and beliefs, and not just your external behaviors.

Can I trust my results?
Self-reported assessments, when controlled through statistical tools for distorting incentives and properly validated items (i.e., questions), have been shown to be effective in a wide range of disciplines including health sciences and social sciences. It’s important to take these results for what they are – one additional perspective on your progress toward your goals. There are certainly factors outside of BetterUp that may impact your results and we encourage you to use them as a self-awareness tool to continue to strive for lasting positive changes in your life.
