Engaging employees through engaging strengths.

Levels of EngagementEveryone has strengths. Recognizing and tapping into them to reach larger goals can lead to increased job satisfaction, performance, productivity and success.

Based on a 40-year study of human strengths, Gallup created a language of the 34 most common talents and developed the Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment to help people discover and describe these talents. In 2001, the initial version of this assessment was included with the bestselling management book Now, Discover Your Strengths.

Columbus State has embraced the Strengths model and is offering classes and coaching to help employees at all levels work to their full potential by cultivating their talents into strengths and complimenting the strengths of their colleagues.
