The Harmony Strength may be the most misunderstood of all the Strengths. People typically perceive someone with this talent theme as a "softie" or afraid of confrontation. Men we’ve worked with have even called this a “wimpy” strength. We’re here to set the record straight and show the practicality of the Harmony strength.
How do they think?
People with the Harmony talent see conflict and confrontation as useless and unproductive. They believe a lot of time is wasted by people trying to impose their views on others.
How do they feel?
Tension and friction are like sandpaper to someone with Harmony. They feel like the way to come to consensus is to discuss practical matters and finding a common ground. They are not afraid of conflict; they just don’t see the point in engaging in it if there is a better way. And they will usually find a better way to bring people together.
How do they behave?
Individuals high in Harmony can be described as the peacemakers and will work tirelessly to enhance collaboration in the midst of conflict. They are great at being bridge builders between differing points of view. They are not people you will find that are willing to debate but will find consensus between any areas of friction. In a team environment they will be the people that will let opinions be heard but never let it turn into an argument or lead to idea clashing. They will quickly help the team see each other’s side and draw people together.
