Self Assessment

Flaticon Icon Take a moment to review the actions associated with each behavior. For each statement, ask yourself: Does this sound like me?


  • I reflect on new information and seek the positives

  • I recognize that it is my choice to be optimistic

  • I make time for others and the people


  • I always ask ‘why?’ until I have a full understanding

  • I involve myself in activities that matter to me

  • I challenge the status quo and make sure there is purpose to everything I do

Own it

  • I understand and embrace my strengths

  • I set achievable goals, and take time to celebrate success

  • I take the time to learn from my failures and missteps


  • I take time to foster meaningful relationships

  • I take time to understand others perspectives

  • I share good news with others, and celebrate their success

The statements that sounded like you are your strengths. Anything that didn't sound like you is an opportunity to become more resilient.
