About StrengthsFinder

Strengthsfinder is a tool developed by Gallup University to identify an individual’s Signature Themes of Talent.

In the early 1950s Donald O Clifton began the study to determine the most natural thoughts, feelings and behaviours of “the best of the best”

He quickly discovered that our talents do more than make us unique individuals.  Our greatest talents also serve as our best opportunities for excellence when they are followed.

Sure, skills are important and knowledge is vital but Strengths requires something more important and powerful than skill and knowledge combined - Talent.

Once we discover the talents in individuals we begin to recognise where investing time and energy, skills and knowledge are best placed to develop that talent into a Strength.  A Strength delivers a consistent near-perfect outcome and when individuals get to do what they do best, they are not only more efficient, but their engagement to their organization increases and the quality of their work increases.

How can we develop the people in our organisations?  How should we manage them?   - By discovering their talents and creating opportunities for them to understand their most natural thoughts, feelings and behaviours, we also. discover ways to understand their unique contribution and greatest potential for Strength.

The real tragedy of life is not that each person doesnt have enough strengths, its that we fail to use the ones we have. Benjamin Franklin.
