CliftonStrengths for Students (StrengthsQuest)

Dates for Fall 2018 will be released in August! 

About CliftonStrengths for Students 

Several years ago, Donald Clifton, Ph.D., asked one question that sparked the birth of Strengths Psychology: “What would happen if we actually study what is right with people?” In partnership with Gallup, the CliftonStrengths assessment was created from the perspective of Positive Psychology. Strengths research was conducted over 3 decades, spanning 30+ cultures, leading to 430+ talents, which were condensed to 34 themes and 4 domains. Everyone may embody all 34 themes, but 5 rise to the top. 

If you are wondering what your Top 5 Strengths are and how to utilize them in your daily life, join us for a CliftonStrengths Open Workshop in partnership with the Office of Greek Life and Career Center. You can also request a personalized workshop to benefit your student organization, staff, or executive team! We ask that requests are made at least 3 weeks prior to your preferred workshop date. Please contact Krystal Clark at krystal.clark@vanderbilt.edu with any questions. 

 

Intro to CliftonStrengths for Students Workshop
Participants will be provided a FREE StrengthsQuest code so they can complete the inventory on site!

Gallup studies indicate that people who have the opportunity to focus on their Strengths are 6x more likely to be engaged and 3x more likely to thrive on campus and beyond. Come learn about your Strengths and how to apply them in your daily life. Self-awareness is at the heart of good leadership and CliftonStrengths is a great way to develop this skill, while also gaining a deeper awareness of others.
