App Store Description
This Pocket Guide provides a convenient summary of Opposite Strengths theory and how to apply it in daily life. The app is primarily intended as a handy reference for people who have attended Opposite Strengths seminars or coaching sessions, who already understand the underlying theory and know which of the eight patterns of opposite strengths are theirs.
For those unfamiliar with Opposite Strengths theory, the app can serve as a succinct introduction which may stimulate them to learn more. In addition to the overview of theory, the app includes eight case studies that illustrate how the theory applies in daily life. (Complete information on the theory and how it improves lives as well as the short questionnaire used to identify the eight patterns of strengths is available on the Opposite Strengths desktop web site, http://oppositestrengths.com.)
The Pocket Guide helps people discover who they really are in terms of:
- personality characteristics
- vocational talents
- relationship behaviors
- what they want others to do.
The app suggests appropriate strategies for balancing, reinforcing, and optimizing people’s own natural strengths depending upon whether they are:
- inclined to action vs. thought
- practical and fact-oriented vs. interested in general principles
- self-sufficient vs. inclined to seek out and consider the views of others.
