Gallup - Strength Based Coaching

What is CliftonStrengths assessment all about?

For decades, the CliftonStrengths assessment has helped people excel in their field of work, by simply helping them understand their talents and strengths.

The formula Talent x Investment = Strength captures a profound concept in a simple fashion.

​Talents, Clifton wrote, are your "naturally recurring patterns of thought, feeling, or behavior." They're the innate, natural abilities you can productively apply. To turn those talents into strengths, you must invest in them -- practice using them and add knowledge and skills to them.

The formula Talent x Investment = Strength is at the core of every strengths-based development product, service and solution Gallup offers.

As per research done by Gallup - data shows that people who have the opportunity to use their CliftonStrengths are six times as likely to be engaged in their jobs and to strongly agree that they have the chance to do what they do best every day.

Plus, people are more confident and more likely to achieve their goals. They're more likely to report having ample energy, feeling well-rested, being happy, smiling or laughing a lot, learning something interesting, and being treated with respect. And they're less likely to report experiencing worry, stress, anger, sadness or physical pain.

​No wonder people who use their CliftonStrengths are three times as likely to report having an excellent quality of life.

What happens in the test?

The test is a timed test of 177 questions with multiple choice answers. You just have to be yourself and respond to the best choice. There are no wrong options, you just got to selected the one which defines you the best.

You have to give the test online from the comfort of your home. Once you are done with the test, you will get a report within a short time listing your strengths. At the time of this writing, it is a 25-page report which you need to review.

What do we do during the Coaching session?

  • Instructions will be provided once you enroll. You will need to do your homework so that we can manage the timeline. The initial session is roughly between an hour to two hours.

  • During the initial session, the need to follow up sessions will be agreed upon, it depends on your GOALS and the assistance you need from your COACH.


Is this the right time for me to begin Coaching?

If you feel like you are ready to make some important changes, the time is right for you. If you are extremely busy and cannot imagine taking on another thing, then the answer is ‘probably yes.’  The first thing you and your Coach may want to explore is what to remove from your busy schedule to make your life feel simpler, more in balance and manageable.

During your coaching, you will be invited to look at old situations in new ways. You will be offered new concepts and different ways to approach things. If you are willing to try out new possibilities and stretch your creative side, you will get a large return for your investment. If you are a person who vigorously defends your old perspectives, you will still get much value from committing yourself to a specific course of action.
