What is Strengths?
Using CliftonStrengths will help you discover and develop your greatest talents. Participating in CliftonStrengths enables you to measure your talents -- your natural patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving -- and categorizes them into 4 domains and 34 talent themes. Getting involved with Strengths will empower our managers, maximize our employee performance and, in the process, boost our productivity and morale. Our goal is to have you:
- Discover what you naturally do best
- Learn how to develop your greatest talents into strengths
- Maximize your potential through strengths
