2. Begin my CliftonStrengths Assessment

This inventory helps students grow confident in who they are and how they can contribute to the world by utilizing their strengths. Strengths-based leadership is the ability to identify and make the best use of your own and others’ strengths in order to apply them, delegate tasks, and understand the needs of others.
