What is Gallup’s CliftonStrengths®?

The CliftonStrengths Assessment is an online assessment measuring individuals’ talents—natural patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving—and categorizes them into the 34 CliftonStrengths themes.

Each person’s top five strengths are different. The chance that two people share the same top 5 in order is 1 in 33 million. But these millions of people all share something in common: they have a starting point for talking about what they do best.

More than 90% of Fortune 500 companies have used CliftonStrengths to bring the power of strengths-based development to their workplace. It is considered to be a global standard in strengths assessment and has been completed by over 29 million people.

    We would have moved directly into action but it was great to have Centauric with us to help us make the path, find what projects were most important and helped us challenge our assumptions.

    Vicki Poponi, VP Honda Consumer Journey Experience

    I really liked the simplicity of the framework. Streamlined but powerful. The facilitators were very likable, articulate and created a sense of camaraderie even in a virtual group. The framework that they present is different from other leadership programs in that it’s simple, easy to implement and it’s effective. As a leader, that’s what you’re looking for, and I think the program accomplished that.
