Utilize Your Strengths
Increase Employee Productivity, Motivation, and Innovation thru the CliftonStrengths® Assessment
(formerly called StrengthsFinder)
CliftonStrengths is the Assessment
that helps employees do what they do best.
What is CliftonStrengths?
The CliftonStrengths assessment identifies natural areas of talent so people can do more of what they’re good at. Working from areas of strength is a best practice that fuels employee engagement, productivity, satisfaction, and more.
Formerly called StrengthsFinder®, the CliftonStrengths assessment provides a ranking of 34 different areas of talent like Responsibility®, Empathy®, Command®, and Strategic®.
The idea is to identify your talents, apply them toward work, and grow your talents into strengths. CliftonStrengths was developed by human behavior and organizational experts from the Gallup Organization.
The assessment has been taken about 30 million times in countries across the world and is being used by organizations of all sizes. Taking the assessment is just the first step. Training, coaching, and ongoing reinforcement can build a strengths-based culture.

Unfortunately, the majority of employees aren’t using their strengths regularly at work.
They’re working harder—not smarter—and leaving a lot of value on the table. But there’s a better way. Research shows that employees who regularly work in their strengths show an increase in:
Positive interactions with coworkers
Creativity and innovation
Product or service quality
In today’s dynamic job market, a strengths-based culture can be a competitive advantage. That’s why organizations from Fortune 500 companies to educational institutions to small businesses are creating people strategies around strengths.
My Expertise With Strengths:
When I became Chief People Officer for EnergyCAP in State College, PA, the first thing I did was roll out a strengths program. I was eager for our company and employees to experience the benefits of strengths
I became a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach, administered the assessment to our employees, began holding training sessions, and coached employees around strengths. We were on our way to building a strengths-based culture
Gallup invited me to speak at their Strengths conference and I found myself leading about 50 workshops a year. I decided I wanted more time for strengths, so I resigned from EnergyCAP to focus on serving other organizations
Our family moved to Charlottesville, VA and now I’m a full-time consultant helping to strengthen workplaces.
What Customers Are Saying:
Wow—I feel like it was so much great information. I need to stop focusing on my weaknesses and focus on the many strengths and how to grow from them.
It reinforced that we all bring something to the table to contribute and that everyone has different strengths that can be used to be successful.
The information was very practical. It gave me a better understanding of talents versus strengths and how our team members can work better together.
