Strengths-based development starts with understanding what strengths contribute to performance. Every team is the sum of its parts, and different challenges call for specific abilities. Some teams need conflict resolution and some need help staying on task, while others need help aligning their work with the organization’s purpose.
Use Strengths to Boost Performance
The CliftonStrengths assessment identifies a person’s natural talents and capacities to perform at excellence. It’s a development tool – the more you use your strengths, the stronger they get – and a means of tailoring talent to task and improving performance.
