On Their Top 5 CliftonStrengths
In the College of Business
Five-Year Impact Report, 2020 Flipbook | PDF
On the campus where strengths-based psychology first started, you’ll see the power of understanding and using your top five CliftonStrengths. As a student, you’ll take the CliftonStrengths assessment in the Investing in Strengths (BSAD 111) course and receive one-on-one coaching to achieve individualized academic, personal and professional success.
First-year business students learn how to develop and apply their strengths for success in college and beyond in this interactive course. After identifying their strengths through the CliftonStrengths assessment students learn how to leverage their strengths for specific outcomes including academics, major and career awareness, and engagement and well-being in college.
Selected for their ability to develop others, student strengths coaches mentor first-year business students in Professional Enhancement I: Investing in Strengths (BSAD 111). The coaches lead team meetings of up to 10 students once a week and facilitate two one-on-one strengths coaching sessions tailored to each team member to help them recognize and maximize their potential.
Selected for their high leadership and entrepreneurial potential, Clifton Builders are challenged to create, disrupt and manage effectively. By choosing to pursue a Clifton Builders management major or minor, students learn how to build successful businesses, teams and communities and achieve higher levels of employee engagement to apply in their future positions of leadership.
