There seems to be a lot of talk about strengths in career counseling circles and many counselors have committed to formal training in order to become a Gallup Certified CliftonStrengths Coach. If you're considering this certification or just want to learn more about StrengthsFinder and its uses, this presentation by Anne Grieves, a Gallup Certified CliftonStrengths Coach will be of interest to you.
Anne will discuss how this tool is used specifically in career counseling, how it differs from the MBTI, and why so many coaches are embracing it. The presentation will be interactive and will include an activity to assess the alignment between your strengths and your work as well as a discussion of career counseling case studies.
