Do you know your Top 5 Talents?

Strengths Zone is a Gallup Certified Training & Coaching organization. Our professional services are well-suited for individuals and teams seeking to uncover and refine their natural talents. Gallup-based research has shown that traditional approaches to personal development are incomplete. We apply Strengths-based development that is unique in its approach and outcome.

It is based on the notion that once natural talents are precisely identified, we can graduate to creating strategies and solutions rooted in one’s greatest areas of potential—not in shoring up weaknesses.

Gallup® – The Strengths Based Science

Decades of Gallup® research has proven that when individuals have the opportunity to discover their natural talents and purposely develop them into strengths, the effect on individual and organizational performance is transformational. People who focus on their strengths are more engaged, more productive, and happier. Also, people who have the opportunity to focus on their strengths every day are six times as likely to be engaged in their jobs. They are more productive, too, both individually and in teams. And they are more than three times as likely to say they have an excellent quality of life.

What is CliftonStrengths?

CliftonStrengths is a Web-based talent assessment instrument from the perspective of Strengths Psychology. Through a secure connection, CliftonStrengths presents 177 items to the user. The user is given 20 seconds to respond to a given pair of descriptors before the system automatically presents the next pair.

Is CliftonStrengths Meant to be a Work-Related Inventory, a clinical inventory, both or neither?

CliftonStrengths is an omnibus assessment based on Strengths Psychology. Its primary application has been in the work domain, but it has been used for understanding individuals in a variety of roles and settings – employees, executive teams, students, families, and personal development. It is not intended for clinical assessment or diagnosis of psychiatric disorders.
