How CliftonStrengths Helps College Students Thrive

CliftonStrengths Isn't Just for Your Students
No matter the type of workplace, a strengths-based approach is essential for greater engagement and wellbeing.
If your faculty, staff and leaders aren't thriving and engaged, how can you expect your students to be?
Consider the following quote from Don Clifton, the inventor of CliftonStrengths:
As an educational leader, that's your responsibility. You can't deliver on it if your employees aren't engaged and thriving in their work.
We help educators everywhere create cultures that weave strengths-based development into every corner of their school or university system.
Supporting thriving students starts with engaged faculty, staff and leaders who know their own CliftonStrengths and how to develop those of others:

Coach and Develop Leaders & Their Teams
Help faculty, staff and others learn how to use their CliftonStrengths with students and in their roles.
