CliftonStrengths, from Gallup, is based on the work of Don Clifton, and focuses on discovering the talents that excite and engage people with their work, each other, and their lives.
Don Clifton believed that the key to engagement was helping people discover the talents that come naturally to them. For many of us, 70% of what we do comes intuitively to us, while 30% of what we do requires significant focus. Clifton wondered if we could leverage our natural ways of seeing (or talents) to make 100% of what we do intuitive. That means, by aligning your teaching with your natural strengths and talents – you can improve your teaching and engage in fulfilling practice.
