CliftonStrengths for Students Training

Clubs and Leadership Development in the Division of Student Life, and the University of Guelph-Humber, are offering a professional development opportunity for staff curious to learn more about CliftonStrengths for Students. The intention is for staff to strengthen their understanding of the philosophy, discover more about the 34 CliftonStrengths, and receive tips and information about best practices and the benefits of using CliftonStrengths with students. Prior to training days, staff should have completed the inventory, read their “Strengths Insight Report”, and have personally reflected on their own CliftonStrengths.
