I find myself missing strangers as our country reaches an epic milestone – one year of social distancing. How about you? As a medical reserve volunteer in emergencies, I get deployed to PODS, point of dispensing centers. These are places in the community where medical countermeasures, such as vaccines, are used during a public health emergency. I have been volunteering in the medical reserve corps as a public health professional since Superstorm Sandy. This interest in strangers and the volunteer work is aligned with my strength, identified by the Clifton Strengths assessment, Woo. Woo stands for winning others over. “People exceptionally talented in the Woo theme love the challenge of meeting new people and winning them over.” I am especially tuned into my strengths because I use the Clifton Strengths Finder assessment to coach clients to achieve peak performance. What is so incredible here is how I serve as an outstanding team member. When the roles are being given out at the POD, “Ok, who would like to greet and direct people as they come in?” My hand goes up so fast because I know this is me. Woo is here!  The future is uncertain. To give you some semblance of control over the rest of your life, use your strengths. Transform your great potential in only a few hours, discover your strengths and learn how to use them so you can thrive.  I can help.
