Talent awareness is the new currency of leadership.

We are all at our very best when we are using our unique talents and living our strengths.


But how do we get there?


Strengths Savvy is a company that provides strengths-based seminars and coaching services to businesses and individuals. Our seminars and coaching sessions revolve around the CliftonStrengths assessment which is run by the Gallup organization—pioneers in employee engagement and personal development. Strengths theory is a powerful concept that focuses on individual talents, abilities and potential instead of examining weaknesses, problems and deficits.

It has widespread application to improve organizations, company cultures, families and individual lives.

Some companies just have their employees take the assessment.  We have a unique and inspirational way of teaching people how to use it!

Our clients' employees are more engaged, inspired and happy!


People love our seminars!

We help people discover their strengths, leading to more collaborative and productive teams.

"Strengths Savvy came to our office and

the experience was life changing

for everyone in attendance!

"Many thanks for one of the

best developmental sessions

I've ever attended!"

Over 90% of

Fortune 500 companies use CliftonStrengths

to improve their organizations...

Shouldn't yours?

All of the services provided by Strengths Savvy are based on Gallup's CliftonStrengths. This is an assessment created by Donald O. Clifton, Ph.D., encompassing over 40 years of research. This assessment has been taken by over 20 million individuals worldwide, with significant results.



     Companies with highly engaged workforces outperform other                  organizations by 147% in earnings per share;


     Teams that use CliftonStrengths report 72% lower



      Workgroups that receive strengths-based development achieve an         increase in profit of as much as 29%;


      Individuals who understand and use their Strengths report being

      substantially more engaged in their work and in their lives;


     Teams which focus on Strengths are substantially more productive;


     A highly engaged workforce means the difference between a                    company that outperforms its competitors and one that fails to              grow.
