What is CliftonStrengths (StrengthsFinder)?

This performance tool was developed by Gallup through decades of research. It all started with one question by psychologist Don Clifton: “What would happen if we studied what is right with people versus what is wrong with people?” Through years of studying some of the brightest and most successful people in the world, they discovered patterns of talents which led to the highest achievements.

When people know their own talents, they can begin to flourish in life and in work. Gallup developed an assessment to uncover talents, measuring patterns of thoughts, feeling, behaviors. Since 2001, this 177 questionnaire, known as the CliftonStrengths assessment or StrengthsFinder, has helped over 20 million people find what makes them uniquely exceptional. By developing your talents, you discover how to live your best life through your Strengths!

Why CliftonStrengths?

People who use their Strengths, also known as CliftonStrengths, are:

  • 3x as likely to report an excellent quality of life
  • 6x more likely to be engaged at work
  • Show an 8%-18% increase of performance
  • 7.8% more productive in their role

Is it a Personality Test?

No. This assessment won’t tell you if you are introverted or extroverted. It will, however, teach both introverts and extroverts what they need to succeed and help them understand how they interact with others.

Shouldn’t I Fix My Weaknesses?

Weaknesses can be addressed, but it isn’t by fixing them. Problems and challenges are more productively approached through the lens of your Strengths.
