Introduction to CliftonStrengths

Ready to uncover your Top 5 Strengths? Register today to take Gallup’s CliftonStrengths Assessment and explore your Top 5 Strengths with Bob Just, Gallup-certified Strengths Coach. This introductory workshop will allow you to explore your unique talents, learn about the talents of others, and identify how to apply your talents toward your educational, career, and personal goals.

Pre-Workshop Requirements

  1. Once registration closes, participants will receive a confirmation email with instructions for how to complete the CliftonStrengths assessment.
  2. The assessment takes about 45 minutes to complete.
  3. Assessment results will immediately generate upon completion.
  4. Prior to the workshop, all participants must download a copy of the "Signature Theme Report" and highlight sentences that resonate with them and include comments with personal examples. 

In total, there is about 60 minutes of advanced work required, which is why registration closes one full week before the workshop. 

Why attend the workshop?

The introductory workshop provides invaluable knowledge that properly contextualizes the meaning of your results in relation to others. Workshop participants gain experience with the following: 

  • History behind why and how the assessment was created,
  • Enhanced understanding of the role talents play in our everyday lives (professionally & personally), 
  • Discussing your Top 5 Strengths with another USF student (and learn about theirs) #Networking,
  • How to manage your "weaknesses" to improve your relationships with others (professionally & personally), 
  • Identifying strategies to practice/apply their talents, and 
  • Opportunities to further learning through the Gallup Access App. 

In addition, people who attend the workshop will receive the following resources: 

  • Personal Insights Card 
  • Bring - Need Sheet (for those who complete the post-workshop survey)

In the past two years, 100% of workshop attendees have found the workshop to be informative, effective, and engaging (both in-person and virtually). Here are some testimonies from past workshop participants about why you should join: 

“The personalized report was very insightful and helped me see potential in myself that I had never realized before. The atmosphere was fun and welcoming, which kept me engaged and entertained throughout the whole seminar.”
- July 2020 virtual participant

"I would definitely recommend this. Unlike the personality test, I think this really applies to teamwork, which is something prevalent in university. By knowing your talents and how it impacts the team, it could make a difference in how things play out."
- June 2020 virtual participant

“This workshop is applicable to both our professional lives and personal lives. Knowing this helps one understand how we react to things and knowing that there is a way to use our strengths to their full potential.”
- July 2020 virtual participant
