Leading Through Strengths

Track Info

Note: Participants will receive a code to take the CliftonStrengths assessment and must complete it in advance of the conference. Failure to do so will result in a reassignment to a different conference track. If you have taken the CliftonStrengths Assessment already, please choose a different training option.

Students who participate in this track will learn about their Top 5 Talent themes from the CliftonStrengths assessment and how those themes can be used to be a better leader on campus and beyond.

"Use the CliftonStrengths assessment to transform the way you experience college. When students learn to use their CliftonStrengths, they thrive. They identify the classes and craft the careers that allow them to do what they do best. They develop deep, meaningful relationships with friends and mentors that can transcend their time on campus. They learn to live within their means now and plan for their financial future. They discover how to live healthy lives, both physically and emotionally and they leave a positive impact on their campus by applying their talents in leadership roles and in clubs and organizations. Thriving students are engaged in their schools because their schools deliver on the promise of helping students live a better life, on campus and beyond. For students, living a better life starts with using their CliftonStrengths (Gallup, 2017)."
