Why CliftonStrengths®?

CliftonStrengths® is a science-based tool for you to utilize on your journey of purpose. Learning your top strengths will give you insight into your unique talents, to help you learn more about what you’re naturally good at. Your talents are naturally recurring patterns of thoughts, feelings and behavior. The CliftonStrengths® Assessment will give you the opportunity to learn more about yourself and how you work and interact. By leaning into your strengths, you’ll be able to grow and develop your skills to help you continue to pursue the things you're passionate about as you build community.

Getting Started

To utilize CliftonStrengths® on your journey, email to take the assessment and meet with a certified Gallup® Strengths Coach. The online assessment takes about 30 minutes and is provided at no charge for WVU students, faculty and staff.

You’ve taken your strengths, now what?

If you’ve already taken your Strengths assessment or are interested in learning more, there are many options available to continue using Strengths as a tool to explore what you're good at and the impact you can have both as an individual and on a team. Much like purpose, Strengths show up holistically and we can invest in them through academics, careers, wellness, and social interactions.
