People exceptionally talented in the Activator StrengthsFinder theme can make things happen by turning thoughts into actions. They are often impatient.
“When can we start?” This is a recurring question for Activators. People with strong Activator talents are impatient for action. They may concede that analysis has its uses or that debate and discussion can occasionally yield some valuable insights, but deep down they know that only action is real. Once a decision is made, they must act. Others may worry that “there are still some things we don’t know,” but this doesn’t seem to slow Activators down. They make a decision, take action, look at the result, and learn. The bottom line is this: Activators know they will be judged not by what they say or what they think, but by what they get done. This does not frighten them. It energises them.
Its Power & Edge
Activators are catalysts who get things started. They naturally see how to turn ideas into action. As a result, they make things happen. Their energy can be contagious and engaging. If you have an important project or talented group that simply needs a “jump start,” find an Activator — they will bring energy and instant momentum.
