Strength-based coaching for businesses, government agencies, community agencies, school divisions, nonprofits, and faith-based institutions using the CliftonStrengths assessment is available through the Center for Leadership.
There are many leadership programs and tools available so why CliftonStrengths? The assessment measures the presence of 34 naturally recurring patterns of thought, feeling, or behavior that can be productively applied. The assessment is rooted in more than 50 years of qualitative and quantitative research and, as a university center for leadership, this research base is important.
All individuals in an organization have a unique set of talents and strengths. The CliftonStrengths Assessment helps team leaders create or reinforce a strengths-based culture in their organization. Training can be provided around the top five talents of team members or around the entire 34.
Clifton Strengths training helps individuals discover their own talents and learn how to develop those talents into strengths, how to work more productively as a team, and how to increase engagement. They will discover “blind spots” or “edges” around their strengths so they can ensure their strengths are not misinterpreted. In addition, team members will identify their own weaknesses and lesser talents and how to manage them.
