CliftonStrengths Finder

CliftonStrengths is being used as a key development tool for all conference clergy and also conference leaders. In the workshops related to CliftonStrengths a few topics have come up multiple times. Links below highlight some of those key points.

To see basic information about the four Domains of CliftonStrengths, which themes are found in each domain, and basic descriptions of each of the 34 themes, click here.

Accessing Your CliftonStrengths Reports

If you have previously taken the CliftonStrengths assessment and need to access your reports, here is how to do so.

  1. Go to
  2. Sign in is in the upper right corner.
  3. Use your email address as your user name.
  4. If you forget your password, you can ask for a re-set.
  5. That should allow you to access your results.

If you took it several years ago and do not have access to the email account you likely used when taking the assessment, use these instructions:

Contact Gallup help ( – chat or call is the most efficient) with this information:

  1. The year and approximate time of year you took the assessment.
  2. The email address you likely used when you took the assessment.
  3. Tell them your Top 5 Themes in order.
  4. Ask them to change the email address with the account to your current email address.
  5. Once that happens, you should be able to reset the password and have access to your reports.
