CliftonStrengths for Teams


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 pays for the assessment code for new, benefits-eligible staff members within their first six months.  Current staff, faculty, temporary, or intermittent workers are still 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 for teams?

As the quote above says, “...working together is success.”  CliftonStrengths can help team members understand and appreciate the unique talents each person brings to the group. Individuals who know their strengths work together to form better partnerships, and more thoughtful partnerships create stronger teams.  When team members value each other’s strengths, they more effectively relate to one another, avoid potential conflicts, and boost group cohesion. Strong teams start with strong individuals.
