Strength – Futuristic

In the ongoing series of strengths this week’s topic is the characteristic of Futuristic. Tom Rath in his book Strength Finders 2.0 describes the traits a person who is inclined toward future-thinking as one who looks beyond the current conditions.

The future is fantastic to this person; projected as though on a wall the possibilities, details and potentials keeps pulling them toward tomorrow. The exact content of the picture depends on the individual’s other strengths and interests – a better team, life, product, or better world. Sometimes considered a dreamer, their visions are cherished and motivating. When the present condition is too frustrating and people around them too pragmatic this person is energized by the conjured visions of a future condition.
