Strengths-based Development

"The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away."

- Pablo Picasso

How often did you bring home a report card full of A's and B's but, sadly, were told to improve a lone C? Now imagine a world that focuses on highlighting and developing your strengths rather than fixing your weaknesses. Imagine a culture that magnifies your A's and doesn't worry about the C's.

Talent + Time Investment = Strength

A strength is the ability to consistently provide near-perfect performance in a specific activity. Talents are naturally recurring patterns of thought, feeling, or behavior that can be productively applied. Talents, knowledge, and skills -- along with the time spent (i.e., investment) practicing, developing your skills, and building your knowledge base -- combine to create your strengths.

Better performance comes from doing what you naturally do best. Strengths-based development using Clifton StrenthsFinder® and a Gallup® Certified Strengths Coach is the key to unlocking the awareness of your unique talents. Its not just about identifying talents and strengths, its about helping people recognize and develop their talents and strengths and learning to apply them to accomplish goals.

The Science of Strengths

What is Gallup®?

Gallup® Inc. is a research-based, performance-management consulting company founded by George Gallup® in 1958 when he decided to group all of his polling operations under one central organization. Today, Gallup® Polls are regularly conducted in over 140 countries, representing 95% of the world’s adult population. The results of these polls are internationally regarded as an objective measurement of public opinion. They serve to capture the attitudes and behaviours of employees, customers, students and citizens more accurately than any other organization in the world.

The Clifton StrengthsFinder® Assessment is a proven way to achieve this clarity of focus, and consistently results in positive outcomes for participants.
