Be an Arranger

By: Ashley

Hello fellow blog followers! It’s great to be back and into the full swing of things. So for my first post of the semester I have chosen to talk about one of the strengths that we weren’t able to get to last semester, so if you have Arranger as one of your top 5 strengths and was like “No fair, mine wasn’t listed,” do not fret, I am here to shed some light on this most interesting strength.

Arranger

On the StrengthsQuest website it says that “People who are especially talented in the Arranger theme can organize, but they also have a flexibility that complements this ability. They like to figure out how all of the pieces and resources can be arranged for maximum productivity.” So, basically, you like getting things done, efficiently and in an effective manor, but are unafraid to switch up your routine if it is more successful in producing your desired results.

It is also said that people with Arranger as a top theme are able to take a complex situation with many challenges and accomplish their goals in a productive way. To put it simply, Arrangers like to get stuff done, and like to do it right. My favorite quote from StrengthsQuest site about Arrangers is the saying “You are a shining example of effective flexibility.” In other words, you are very good at producing desired results and are willing to change the way you do things to keep the process as efficient as possible. You are not afraid to jump into challenging and often confusing situations because of your flexibility, ability to multitask, and willingness to look for new ways of doing things.

Arrangers also have the ability to orchestrate people and resources for maximum effectiveness. So I would peg Arrangers as being leaders, people who can direct others but seem approachable and less intimidating because of their flexibility. You would be happiest when you are part of good team of people, who get the project done, your organizational and arrangement skills help keep your project flowing towards your end goal. It might help you to challenge yourself by finding ways to make these arrangements more efficient, because even the best systems can be improved. One great way to challenge yourself is to organize a huge event because the large-scale effort will make your Arranger skills shine even brighter and help you hone this strength.

Some careers that would engage your Arranger strength and build off it are positions that allow you the freedom and flexibility to work with others while also being able to plan events. Some careers such as event planners, travel agents, city managers, case workers, and supervisors are just some of the careers that Arrangers would flourish in.

I guess the best advice for people with Arranger as a top strength would be to maintain that flexibility that Arrangers are famous for and explore all possible career paths after all even the most well laid plan can be strengthened and improved.
