Gallup Created
the Science of Strengths

For decades, the CliftonStrengths assessment has helped people excel. From top business executives and managers to salespeople, nurses, teachers, students, pastors, and others, millions of people have realized the benefits of leading with their strengths.

Additional research finds people who know and use their strengths every day are more likely to experience positive emotions (energetic, well-rested, happy, respected) and less likely to experience negative ones (stress, worry, anger, sadness).

Achieving these benefits and more starts with the 177-question online CliftonStrengths assessment. In less than 30 minutes, people who take the assessment receive:

  • A measure of their natural talents within 34 themes
  • A life-changing lens for self-awareness
  • A language to more accurately describe what they do best
  • Action items and in-depth information to use as they set out to accomplish their goals

Individuals, teams and organizations alike use CliftonStrengths to empower personal growth and boost business outcomes. And they’ve been doing so since 2001, thanks to Gallup and its former chairman Don Clifton.

Starting the Strengths Movement

The strengths movement began in 2001, when Gallup introduced the world to the original CliftonStrengths assessment in Now, Discover Your Strengths. The book became a New York Times bestseller and sold 2 million copies.

Its author and creator of the CliftonStrengths, former Gallup chairman Don Clifton (1924-2003), was honored by the American Psychological Association with a Presidential Commendation as the Father of Strengths-Based Psychology.
