Discover Your Strengths

Understanding your strengths unlocks your potential and leads you to greater performance.

Discover your strengths by completing a CliftonStrengths assessment to gain insight into your top 5 personal strengths. Learn about new areas of development and use your strengths to your advantage inside and outside of the classroom.

Gallup’s CliftonStrengths is a tool used to help you uncover your talents. When you know your strengths, it becomes easier to identify the classes and craft the careers that allow you to do what you do best.

During this 30 minute assessment, you'll see 177 paired statements and choose which ones best describe you. The assessment measures your talents -- your natural patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving -- and categorizes them into the 34 CliftonStrengths themes. The top 5 themes are available to you for free.

Contact for instructions on how to access the CliftonStrengths Assessment.

Finishing the assessment is just the start of fulfilling your purpose.

Your customized CliftonStrengths reports and guides help you chart your course to accomplish great things using the true north of what you naturally do best.

Now it's time to aim your CliftonStrengths at anything that comes your way.

Use your customized dashboard on the Gallup Access platform to find resources and tools that will help you learn how to do more of what you naturally do best.

“One piece of learning I took away from attending a CliftonStrengths workshop is that it is very important to identify what we need to be at our best in a relationship and work environment. Identifying our needs will help us connect and work better with those around us.“
