Discover Your Talents!


“There is no more effective way to empower people than to see each person in terms of his or her strengths.”     – Don Clifton

Don Clifton was the author of the CliftonStrengths assessment and father of strengths psychology. CliftonStrengths uncovers your top five unique talents. Students can take the assessment at the MU Career Center and talk with a Career Specialist about their results.

Your CliftonStrengths themes are your “talent DNA”. They explain the ways you most naturally think, feel and behave.  Research shows that people who know and use their CliftonStrengths are:

  • more engaged at work
  • more productive in their roles
  • happier and healthier

As a student, our staff can help you think about leveraging your talents to be a better learner, teammate, leader and employee.  So what’s keep you from knowing your natural talents? Take the CliftonStrengths assessment today – connect with our staff online to get started!
