CliftonStrengths®: Woo® – The Social Networker

by | Feb 10, 2019 | Strengths

Gallup® defines this theme as: “People exceptionally talented in the Woo theme love the challenge of meeting new people and winning them over. They derive satisfaction from breaking the ice and making a connection with someone.”

You promote

There are no strangers in the world of Woo’s, and you work a crowd like no other. As a result, you have a big network of people in your roster from all walks of life.

You’re a natural promoter of anything that you’re interested in, network with ease, and often have communication skills to match your charm.

Creating a game where you track the number of people you talk to each day or week could be fun and energizing for you as you need to interact with people daily.

Groups energize you

The size of the group can range from 30-300,000 or more. The crowds tend to energize you more than 1-on-1, yet for some, one person at a time could be just the strategy to spread the word.

Like a butterfly flying from flower to flower, you can be seen talking to most, if not all, in the room at a party, function, or at your local grocery store.

People in the community often know you, of you, or recognize you. You tend to stand out.

You’re charismatic

You naturally charm small to large groups of people. Being on stage energizes you big time, whether it’s speaking in front of a group, performing, or hosting a webinar.

It’s important for you to engage in activities where there are people involved; you need them.

Creating a network with different people that you continually grow is important too. With your often large network, you’re a natural connector that could function like a matchmaker and connect people, like an offline Facebook.

You’re outgoing and friendly

You have a need to be liked yet are also generous with your words and praise. Finding a balance is key.

Creating a game where you deliberately go out and engage with new people can be fun for you, using any tactic necessary to win them over, charm and questions being two of them.

For you, it’s more about impacting many and you’re fearless when it comes to connecting with new people and starting up conversations.

For you, there are no strangers, only friends you haven’t yet met. Use these talents to warm up the crowds and bring out the best in people.
