What is the CliftonStrengths assessment?
The CliftonStrengths assessment, formerly known as the Clifton StrengthsFinder, was created by educational psychologist Donald Clifton. He wanted to identify the strengths that made top performers stand out.
In the 1990s, under Clifton’s leadership, The Gallup Organization created the CliftonStrengths assessment. The goal of the assessment is to help individuals identify and build on their greatest strengths.
The assessment can help teams work together more effectively and improve engagement. It can also help managers clarify their roles and understand how to lead their team better.
All Members of the Holy Trinity Parish Pastoral Council are required to complete the CliftonStrengths assessment. This helps us know each other's strengths, and helps us build a strong team.
