At Western, we have a team of Gallup CliftonStrengths coaches available to support Western students using the Gallup CliftonStrengths assessment to help identify the areas where an individual has the most significant potential for building strengths. Students receive their top five talents, a measurement of a naturally recurring pattern of thought, feeling, or behavior that can be productively applied. Using this assessment, students can focus on what they naturally do well. They can use that information in many ways – finding a job, managing their time, building relationships, etc. We have found that the assessment is valuable in facilitating student conversations in many ways.

How Gallup CliftonStrengths Coaches Can Support Faculty:

  • Presentations: Our team will meet with you to understand your needs and customize our presentation accordingly. We have facilitated CliftonStrengths coaching in the classroom, implemented strengths in a resume, and used strengths in an interview.
  • Class Assignments: Assign your students to a 1:1 coaching session with our team.
  • And more! This is a flexible process – reach out if you have a new idea that you want to try out!


  • If you are interested email Career Services at and let us know what class it is for and how many students you have.


  • “I initially found the results of the Strengths Finder very confusing, and I didn’t really know what it meant. However, after the meeting with the trainer, I found that my strengths really did describe me. She helped me find ideas on how to use my strengths for good especially my strength of harmony.”
  • “I was not really shocked much with my results because all those are very true about myself and when I went over them and talked to the trainer and really went farther into what they mean they just all made sense, and I thought was really helpful to talk to the trainer and have her explain them way more and really go deeper into the meaning of them.“
  • “When I first took the assessment I kinda saw how they related to me, but when I talked to the coach, she went more in-depth about what each strength meant. She asked me questions about my life, and she brought up examples in my life that reflected those strengths that I never noticed. In my previous jobs it was easy for me to get along with coworkers and fit in. The coach told me that brought out my adaptability and includer.”
