StrengthsQuest

StrengthsQuest

Your StrengthsQuest journey begins with a 30-minute online assessment, the Clifton StrengthsFinder. This assessment has helped more than 8 million people around the world discover their talents.

After you take the Clifton StrengthsFinder, you'll receive a customized report that lists your top five talent themes, along with action items for development and suggestions about how you can use your talents to achieve academic, career, and personal success.

StrengthsQuest can help you develop as a leader by:

  • increasing your self-awareness. Effective leaders know what they do well, and they find ways to apply their talents authentically and productively. Understanding your talents is an important step in cultivating self-awareness as a leader.
  • deepening your knowledge and appreciation of others' talents. As you learn more about your own talents, you will begin to see the unique talents in others. You'll also appreciate others for the different perspectives they offer because of their talents. The best leaders understand that teams with a diversity of talents achieve the best outcomes.
  • forming and maximizing teams. Although leaders need not be well-rounded, teams should be. Understanding each team members' talents is crucial to getting the most out of a team -- and in a way that honors the contributions each person can make. Understanding each team members' talents will give you new insights into how the team can perform to its full potential.
  • helping others to affirm, develop, and apply their talents. As a leader who understands your own talents and how to apply them productively, you can lead others to develop and apply their talents.

In addition to providing access codes needed in order to complete the on-line assessment, the Center for Leadership Development offers individual consultations, as well as specialized group programming around topics such as “Introduction to Strengths”, “Further Developing and Utilizing Your Strengths”, “Strengths-Based Leadership”, “Strengths and Group Development”, “Strengths-Based Advising and Supervision”, and more.
