Focus on your Strengths!

What do YOU do best?  Learn about your Strengths and what you do best by taking the 30 minute online assessment called the Clifton StrengthsFinder.  After completing the assessment you will receive a list of your top 5 talent themes which is the first step in developing your Strengths.  

You will also receive a customized report listing your top five talent themes and giving you action items in each of the themes to help you develop them into Strengths.  Your talents and Strengths can be applied to every area of your life to help you achieve personal, academic, leadership and career success!

What are the benefits of knowing my top 5 Strengths?

Focusing on what you do best allows you to further develop and learn how to use your Strengths in:

  • Job Interviews
  • Resumes
  • Leadership settings
  • Group projects
  • Personal goals
  • Academic goals
  • Career goals

Why do they only give my top 5 Strengths when there are 34?

StrengthsQuest™ is an assessment based in positive psychology.  The point is to focus on your Strengths, not on areas of potential weakness.
