THE CLIFTON STRENGTHSFINDER

As you may know, the Clifton StrengthsFinder measures the presence of talent in 34 categories called "themes." These themes were determined by Gallup as those that most consistently predict outstanding performance. The greater the presence of a theme of talent within a person, the more likely that person is to spontaneously exhibit those talents in day-to-day behaviors.Focusing on naturally powerful talents helps people use them as the foundation of strengths and enjoy personal, academic, and career success through consistent, near-perfect performance.

Below are our top five themes of talent, ranked in the order revealed by our responses to the Clifton StrengthsFinder. We love that our strengths compliment one another so well and we feel like we make a wonderful team.
