Develop Thriving Students & Engaging Schools

Every student deserves the opportunity to learn what they naturally do best.

They deserve the chance to apply their strengths to become more engaged students and thrive at school and in all areas of their lives.

And they deserve educators who can help them discover their talents and develop them into strengths.

Because a strengths-based approach is essential to empowering your students to learn, grow, and succeed in and out of school.

Why Schools Should Use a Strengths-Based Approach

More than 700,000 students each year get the opportunity to discover and develop their strengths.

That's because more than 1,000 educational institutions know that a positive, strength-based approach to student development:

  • increases engagement
  • improves wellbeing
  • fosters greater academic achievement
  • creates an exceptional campus culture

Educational leaders at these schools understand it is important to focus on what's strong with students, not what's wrong.

They see firsthand how giving students the chance to turn their talents into strengths:

  • transforms the way students experience their education
  • sets students up to succeed far beyond the classroom
  • develops engaged faculty, staff and leaders, too

Join us as we help millions more students reach their full potential and thrive using their strengths.

How CliftonStrengths Helps College Students Thrive

For decades the best leaders in higher education have used a strengths-based approach to create thriving universities that:

  • retain students
  • engage students
  • improve student wellbeing

First, they used a program called StrengthsQuest to help students identify their unique talents using the CliftonStrengths assessment.

Now that solution is called CliftonStrengths for Students, and it's used by colleges and universities to help students:

  • improve their self-awareness and teamwork
  • deepen their engagement on campus
  • chart their right path postgraduation

CliftonStrengths for Students is also a great solution for pre-college students who are preparing for the transition to life on campus.

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:

"Our greatest contribution is to be sure there is a teacher in every classroom who cares that every student, every day, learns and grows and feels like a real human being."

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:

Start With CliftonStrengths

Encourage every faculty and staff member to complete the CliftonStrengths for Students assessment.

Coach and Develop Leaders & Their Teams

Help faculty, staff and others learn how to use their CliftonStrengths with students and in their roles.

Improve Engagement & Wellbeing

Commit to measuring and managing improved engagement and wellbeing in your workplace.
