Sheridan wants you to discover your ‘CliftonStrengths’

Everyone has a set of unique signature strengths. What are yours?

Sheridan’s Centre for People and Organizational Development (CPOD) wants you to discover what makes you exceptional by completing the CliftonStrengths online assessment.

CliftonStrengths is a system of tools used to identify up to 34 unique traits in individuals, like “empathetic,” “learner,” “achiever” or “communicator,” to name just a few. These CliftonStrengths are then grouped under four main “domains”: Strategic Thinking, Relationship Building, Influencing and Executing. 

By completing the survey, participants in the process gain new insights into their own attributes, and also discover how they can help others in an organization.

The system, which is offered through the U.S. polling firm Gallup, was conceived by Don Clifton, an American psychologist who is often called “the father of strengths-based psychology” and the “grandfather of positive psychology.”  

The two-hour virtual workshop, which is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Thursday, May 6, will enable participants to measure their natural patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving. Attendees will also collaboratively work to understand and develop their talents helping themselves, their team and Sheridan maximize potential.

Participants will learn the Clifton Strengths’ positive psychology model; discover, understand and build on their own unique talents; and appreciate the abilities of others. The deadline to register is April 24. Click here to sign up.
