CliftonStrengths® defines the Developer® talent theme as people who “recognize and celebrate the potential in others. They spot the signs of each small improvement and derive satisfaction from the evidence of progress.”
You are committed to people
You see the smallest ways people improve and celebrate every step of the growth journey.
You have patience and have a need to invest your time in someone, and are generally accepting of others.
Seeing the growth of others brings you satisfaction.
You can help others improve
And that includes projects too. With your keen eye for small improvements, you have a natural ability to empower people that may go unnoticed and bring value to contributions to various product developments and services.
You can initiate a platform for recognition, whether a morning powwow to get the day started in a powerful way or a weekly meeting where each team member is recognized for where they have improved or brought.
Imagine the impact this can have on a team and how would energize you to contribute this gift to others.
Help people set targets
Ask them about their targets and strengths with your gift to invest time in people.
You can help guide them in areas where they have existing natural talents that they can develop further and also share the potential you see in them.

You are patient
With your focus on small steps to progress, you have the patience that few share. Your encouragement is an investment that will increase engagement and interest.
You see all growth as good growth.
You focus on the steps between now and moving forward, what can be and how things or people can improve.
You’re born to coach
You’re a natural coach, teacher, or people manager.
You invest and believe in people.
Writing a note or email to people to fill their bucket could be a natural expression for you to spot and express the recognition of talent.
