Communicating Your Strengths: A CliftonStrengths Workshop


Melissa Bostrom, Ph.D., Assistant Dean for Graduate Student Professional Development

How do you describe your five greatest strengths? How can you leverage this information to communicate your capabilities to colleagues and potential employers? Using the CliftonStrengths assessment, this workshop will help you explore a new way to talk about your skills. We will investigate strategies for communicating your strengths to others, the challenges that your strengths might pose for you, and ways you can use information about your strengths to thrive in a team setting. Our facilitator is Melissa Bostrom, Ph.D., Assistant Dean for Graduate Student Professional Development.

The online CliftonStrengths assessment is offered to all registered participants in this limited-enrollment workshop open exclusively to Graduate School students and postdocs. If you have not yet taken the assessment, please request your code by Thursday, May 16.

That experience gave me the language that I needed to articulate my strengths and identify how they’ve helped me succeed. —Lucy Chikwetu, Ph.D. alumna in Electrical and Computer Engineering, reflecting on what she learned from a past workshop
