The Clifton StrengthsFinder tool from Gallup is an online personal growth resource first introduced in the 2001 book "Now, Discover Your Strengths." Gallup later released a new and improved version of the popular assessment in the 2007 publication "StrengthsFinder 2.0."
Rather than focusing on developing personal weaknesses, the Business Week, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller includes hundreds of strategies for identifying the unique strengths, or skills, talents and knowledge, of an individual. StrengthsFinder is geared towards refining these strengths for increased production, better performance and more engaging effort. Within the resource are a personalized Strengths Insight Report, Action-Planning Guide and web-based Strengths Community.
