CliftonStrengths for Individuals


What is the CliftonStrengths assessment?

The CliftonStrengths assessment measures the presence of talent in 34 general areas, or themes.  Once someone has completed the assessment, they get a report of their top 5 CliftonStrengths themes.  

Human Resources purchases the code for new, benefits-eligible staff members within their first six months.  Current staff, faculty, temporary, or intermittent workers are able to take the assessment and participate in the classes but the cost of the assessment would come from the department's budget.

Why CliftonStrengths?

Gallup's research shows the most effective way to develop and empower people is to help them discover and use their strengths.  Strengths-based development is about helping people recognize and develop their talents and strengths - and appreciate others' strengths too.  Read what others have said >>
