Team & Talent Development

Lead and Contribute Authentically

The CliftonStrengths initiative provides a starting point for students to develop strengths within various roles and serves as a foundational resource to build effective teams. Over 90% of Fortune 500 companies utilize CliftonStrengths and associated resources. Through the Clemson Strengths Portal, students in the College have exclusive access to use the tool.

Developing your leadership abilities begins with a focus on your natural skillset and investing in those talents. Your strengths are the keys to your innate potential. When you know your strengths, you act with more confidence, inspiration, and direction. Focusing on strengths in team-based environments is a powerful formula for high performance and effectiveness.
