CliftonStrengths Top 5

Living your best life begins when you tap into your unique talents. CliftonStrengths is a tool designed to do just that — help you live your best life.

The CliftonStrengths assessment is a web-based personality identification tool. The assessment presents you with pairs of potential self-descriptors, such as “I read instructions carefully” versus “I like to jump right into things.” You choose the descriptor that best describes you, and identify how strongly you believe that option is descriptive of you.

The choices are visible for only seconds, so you need to respond quickly. It is designed to capture your “gut” response, not a reasoned answer.
