Gallup's Called to Coach is a live Webcast that targets current and prospective coaches to interact with Gallup experts and independent strengths coaches who have found success in strengths-based development.
On a recent Called to Coach, we spoke with Kristin Barry, Portfolio Director for Talent-Based Hiring at Gallup, about Gallup's talent-based hiring (or selection) assessments and the CliftonStrengths assessment, including their history, the differences between them, and why Gallup doesn't recommend using CliftonStrengths as a hiring tool. Kristin discussed how Gallup's selection assessments are designed to measure talent intensity relative to the best in a specific role, while CliftonStrengths is an aid to understanding a person and to developing them in their career. She also fielded some great questions from the chat room.
