Do you have the opportunity to do what you do best every day?
That’s the key question asked by the Clifton StrengthsFinder program, which is the culmination of more than 50 years of work by Dr. Donald O. Clifton, known as the father of strengths-based psychology. The program he developed has helped millions of people around the world to discover their strengths.
Dr. Donna VanNatten, a StrengthsFinder practitioner, recently visited Future Foundation and walked our staff through the process, using Clifton’s StrengthsFinder 2.0 assessment and strength-based approach for leadership.
Most of the Future Foundation staff took the StrengthsFinder survey to learn more about their personalities, what their five main strengths are, how the strengths relate to each of their personalities and how they use them to contribute to the organization.
“We’ve completed individual assessments and will be starting to see shared traits and unique traits from the team,” said Donna, who completed her StrengthsFinder dissertation using school principals and successful schools. “The goal is to advance Future Foundation’s 2013 People Development Initiative and help the staff work more effectively within the foundation and community.”
