Thrive in College Using CliftonStrengths

CliftonStrengths for students navigating their present and charting their future.

Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach, I help high school and college students develop and discover their strengths. Using the CliftonStrengths Assessment (included in the price of coaching) find out how knowing how you think, feel and behave will aid in your success in college and in life and help you maximize your potential.

According to Gallup’s research, people who know their strengths and use them are three times more likely to report having an excellent quality of life than those who do not know their strengths; people who use their strengths at work are six times more likely to be engaged in their jobs. Knowing and using your strengths contributes to positive emotions, personal engagement and increased productivity.

However, independent researchers and federal agencies who funded the original assessment of QPR have suggested that the QPR intervention could be useful in far broader applications as well.
