  • Learn how strengths sparked a Roman Catholic community to greater volunteerism and community involvement in this recap of a CliftonStrengths Summit 2016 session.

On a recent Called to Coach: CliftonStrengths Summit 2016 Edition, we spoke with Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach Stephanie Moore. These webcasts will highlight some of the best and most popular sessions from the CliftonStrengths Summit.

Stephanie Moore is a codirector with Catholic Life and Faith, a partner with Bridges Leadership development process and a founding member of Catholic Strengths and Engagement Community. Stephanie led a session at the 2016 CliftonStrengths Summit on being a steward of your strengths. Stephanie asked Father Bill Hanson to join her on this episode of Called to Coach to share his story that led to Stephanie's learnings about CliftonStrengths. Father Bill Hanson is pastor at St. Gerard Majella in Port Jefferson Station, N.Y. He was first introduced to strengths in 2002 when invited to a Gallup conference to learn about congregational engagement. At the time, Father Bill's congregation was wondering why new people weren't joining the church and why the members weren't staying or getting involved.

After he introduced strengths to his church, their measurement scores went through the roof -- and his people were getting connected with their God-given talents. By 2015, he had annual operating surpluses over 100k, no problem rallying volunteers and a wonderful welcoming spirit at his church. They achieved their mission of contributing to society and giving life back to the community. He's discovered earning money for doing a task doesn't make as much of a difference to people as he had previously thought, instead, his volunteers look forward to doing what they do best in a community of people who know their strengths.
