What is Gallup StrengthFinder?
Donald J. Clifton, the father of strengths-based psychology, collaborated with with Tom Rath and a team of scientists at Gallup to create the online StrengthsFinder assessment. In 2004, the assessment's name was formally changed to "Clifton StrengthsFinder" in honor of its chief designer.
In 2007, building on the initial assessment and language from StrengthsFinder 1.0, Rath and Gallup scientists released a new edition of the assessment, program, and website, dubbed "StrengthsFinder 2.0." Rooted in more than 40 years of research, this assessment has helped millions discover and develop their natural talents.
In "Engage Your Strengths," the American Bible Society combined this Strengths-based approached with Biblical references to show that our God-given strengths are areas where we can be most effective and successful, in our pursuit of God and ministry. The military Chaplain Corps has adapted this publication to empower soldiers as they tackle the arduous task of leadership under difficult and stressful conditions.
Matt and Corie were selected and certified by Gallup as StrengthsFinder Trainers, able to raise up and lead coaches within the military who then go on to coach others in their Strengths. Their desire to see others flourish and thrive in their "sweet spot" perfectly complements the straightforward and empowering methods employed in the StrengthsFinder assessment.
