Gallup’s Strengths Quest Profile:
Positivity: A positive attitude: Always looking for the positive in every situation, Optimistic and Enjoy encouraging co-workers.
You are generous with praise, quick to smile, and always on the lookout for the positive in the situation. Some call you lighthearted. Others just wish that their glass were as full as yours seems to be. But either way, people want to be around you. Their world looks better around you because your enthusiasm is contagious. Lacking your energy and optimism, some find their world drab with repetition or, worse, heavy with pressure. You seem to find a way to lighten their spirit. You inject drama into every project. You celebrate every achievement. You find ways to make everything more exciting and more vital. Some cynics may reject your energy, but you are rarely dragged down. Your Positivity won't allow it. Somehow you can't quite escape your conviction that it is good to be alive, that work can be fun, and that no matter what the setbacks, and one must never lose one's sense of humor.
Woo: Enjoy the challenge of meeting new people and winning them over: Face to face communication.
Woo stands for winning others over. You enjoy the challenge of meeting new people and getting them to like you. Strangers are rarely intimidating to you. On the contrary, strangers can be energizing. You are drawn to them. You want to learn their names, ask them questions, and find some area of common interest so that you can strike up a conversation and build rapport. Some people shy away from starting up conversations because they worry about running out of things to say. You don't. Not only are you rarely at a loss for words; you actually enjoy initiating with strangers because you derive satisfaction from breaking the ice and making a connection. Once that connection is made, you are quite happy to wrap it up and move on. There are new people to meet, new rooms to work, new crowds to mingle in. In your world there are no strangers, only friends you haven't met yet -- lots of them.
Context: Researching for results: Research previous history to understand and overcome current obstacles.
From your vantage point the present is unstable, a confusing clamor of competing voices. It is only by casting your mind back to an earlier time, a time when the plans were being drawn up, that the present regains its stability. The earlier time was a simpler time. It was a time of blueprints. As you look back, you begin to see these blueprints emerge. You realize what the initial intentions were. These blueprints or intentions have since become so embellished that they are almost unrecognizable, but now this Context theme reveals them again. This understanding brings you confidence. No longer disoriented, you make better decisions because you sense the underlying structure. You become a better partner because you understand how your colleagues came to be who they are. And counterintuitively you become wiser about the future because you saw its seeds being sown in the past. Faced with new people and new situations, it will take you a little time to orient yourself, but you must give yourself this time. You must discipline yourself to ask the questions and allow the blueprints to emerge because no matter what the situation, if you haven't seen the blueprints, you will have less confidence in your decisions.
Adaptability: Adaptable to change, modify to meet the demands of the environment.
You live in the moment. You don't see the future as a fixed destination. Instead, you see it as a place that you create out of the choices that you make right now. And so you discover your future one choice at a time. This doesn't mean that you don't have plans. You probably do. But this theme of Adaptability does enable you to respond willingly to the demands of the moment even if they pull you away from your plans. Unlike some, you don't resent sudden requests or unforeseen detours. You expect them. They are inevitable. Indeed, on some level you actually look forward to them. You are, at heart, a very flexible person who can stay productive when the demands of work are pulling you in many different directions at once.
Relator describes your attitude toward your relationships. In simple terms, the Relator theme pulls you toward people you already know. You do not necessarily shy away from meeting new people -- in fact, you may have other themes that cause you to enjoy the thrill oftuming strangers into friends -- but you do derive a great deal of pleasure and strength from being around your close friends. You are comfortable with intimacy. Once the initial connection has been made, you deliberately encourage a deepening of the relationship. You want to understand their feelings, their goals, their fears, and their dreams; and you want them to understand yours. You know that this kind of closeness implies a certain amount of risk -- you might be taken advantage of -- but you are willing to accept that risk. For you a relationship has value only if it is genuine. And the only way to know that is to entrust yourself to the other person. The more you share with each other, the more you risk together. The more you risk together, the more each of you proves your caring is genuine. These are your steps toward real friendship, and you take them willingly.

It gives me great pleasure to have this opportunity to highlight the professional and moral character of Steve Sanon. I've known him now for more than two years, and he has shown himself to be an upstanding gentleman with a solid moral, ethical, and professional focus. He consistently presents a very pleasant disposition, and he sets an excellent example for his peers. Steve is a faithful member of Timmons Temple Church of God In Christ, and he actively participates in church affairs with a special emphasis and talent for teaching Sunday School. He has a keen interest in the development of youth, and he possesses a wealth of "world" knowledge and experience which can facilitate youthful awareness. Additionally, I believe that Steve would be a real asset in any position or assignment he pursues. Professionally, he maintains a keen focus, and does not allow time-on-task to be hindered by trivial distractions. I have the utmost confidence in Steve's skills and abilities, and I know that he can always be counted on to accomplish any task he is given
Pastor Timmons Temple
I am writing to recommend Mr. Steven Sanon for employment with your business or organization. I have known Mr. Sanon since he matriculated at Evangel University in August 2003, and can attest to his good character, leadership ability and completion of his Bachelor of Business Education degree conferred on May, 2, 2008.
Evangel University maintains high standards for student character and conduct, and Mr. Sanon has been exemplary in complying with these expectations. I believe this reflects well on him personally and will serve him well professionally in your organization.
During his enrollment at Evangel University, Mr. Sanon demonstrated fine teamwork as a member of the varsity basketball team, and provided excellent leadership for two years as the president of a student organization that promoted racial integration and diversity within the university community. This organization thrived under his leadership as indicated by increasing multicultural awareness, participation in events, and fund raising.
I believe his academic, athletic, and leadership experiences qualify Mr. Sanon for consideration as an employee, and serve as an indicator of his potential success as a member of your team. Please contact me if there is any further information that I may provide.
