The Impact of the Miller Success Factors Assessment (MSFA)

Success Coach MSFA

One of the key components of the Success-Minded Leader program is the Miller Success Factors Assessment. I’ve included the actual results from my assessment in this blog post for reference (see below). To read more about my overall experience with the Success-Minded Leader program, check out this blog post!

Completing the Miller Success Factors Assessment (MSFA) was an eye-opening exercise for me and as you can see from my results in this blog post, I over-indexed in positive thinking while also under-indexing in passion. This was a surprise to me. I truly felt like passion was a main driver of my day-to-day activities both personally and professionally; and now I see that my vision was the true driver of my actions.

In a previous blog post I talked about the importance of connecting emotions with actions. As you can see here, a lack of passion denotes a lack of emotion, which may undermine the effectiveness of certain professional and personal activities. I did recognize that I scored highly in all categories and seeing that made me recognize that I pull from these different mindsets consistently. Outside of passion, the other eye-opening element of this assessment was the fact that perseverance, seizing opportunities, creativity and self-motivation were all outweighed by my compassion.

The identification of compassion as an important mindset, and one that I leverage regularly, truly helped me see the benefit and the value in connecting my emotions with my actions. After recognizing through the assessment, that my vision and compassion were strong mindsets for me and having that confirmed in my coaching interactions with my cohort, I began to look at myself differently – and in a very positive way. As referenced in previous blog posts, my DiSC style DC tends to get me focused on results without a sense of emotions or compassion –  or at least I thought so. Today, I understand the importance of reflection, identifying how emotions are driving actions and most importantly leveraging different mindsets to get me through life. Although strengths are great, over-leveraged strengths become weaknesses. The MSFA helped me identify where I could turn my weaknesses into strengths and avoid my strengths becoming weaknesses.

If you’re looking for an additional layer of self-awareness and to dive deeper into who you are both personally and professionally to drive success in your life, I encourage you to check out more about the Success-Minded Leader program.
