What is StrengthsFinder?

UNL Clifton Strengths Institute

The Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment was created under the leadership of educational psychologist Donald Clifton. He wanted to identify the skills of the best of the best of the best, and to capitalize on them. Thus the StrengthsFinder assessment, a revolutionary tool for measuring talents, was first introduced to the world.

The Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment helps identify the areas where you (or team if being used in that context) have the greatest potential for building strength. It measures recurring patterns of thought, feeling, and behavior. From your assessment you will receive your top five signature themes in ranked order. Knowing your top five themes is just the starting point; researching what they mean and attending various workshops can then help individuals, teams and organizations leverage their Talents, and turn them into sustainable Strengths.

Here at UNL we are privileged to have our very own Clifton Strengths Institute located in the College of Business. They are a great resource for learning more about StrengthsFinder, and we are super excited to be partnering with them this fall to bring StrengthsFInder workshops to RSOs and RSO Advisors!
