Strengths-Based Development

Gallup Engagement Survey

Focusing on our strengths activates engagement and helps us perform at our best. Through the lens of the world-renowed Gallup CliftonStrengths assessment, we can leverage individual talents and understand the talents of our colleagues toward personal and professional success.

Why Strengths?

International research by Gallup proves a strengths-based approach activates success. At UCSF, the more we understand our strengths, the greater our team engagement scores.

Strengths-based development helps:

  • identify what we do best
  • discover our greatest opportunities to contribute
  • use our talents in work and life to accomplish what is important to us
