CVG applies strengths methodology to architecture and design firm management.
The Gallup CliftonStrengths (StrengthsFinder) assessment was developed by scientists and psychologists to identify your top five strengths from a list of 34 potential talent themes.
CVG has assembled the largest database of strengths results from architecture and design firms in the country.
CVG has built a special expertise applying CliftonStrengths to architecture and design firms. We provide a comprehensive strengths analysis that includes:
All of your employees taking the CliftonStrengths questionnaire
One-on-one reviews of their results with each of your people
A group workshop to discuss how your team’s strengths impact your firm’s work and culture
Comparison of your team’s results with our database of strengths results from other architecture and design firms
Discussion about how CliftonStrengths can be used to improve your project teams, business development, hiring, and more
We begin by granting your staff members access to the CliftonStrengths assessment, which they then complete online. CVG’s Strengths Expert will then schedule a one-on-one review with each person to share and discuss their results. Following that, our Strengths Expert will debrief your firm’s leadership on collective strengths trends, then she will meet with everyone for a team workshop to do the same. You will also receive a written report and summary that can be used for future coaching.
The initial strengths questionnaire is taken online. The one-on-one reviews are completed via web meeting. The leadership debrief and team workshop can be completed via web meeting or via live meetings at your office.
Benefits to Design Firms
Investing in the CliftonStrengths assessment and workshop can lead to gains in employee engagement, productivity, and well-being while preventing burnout or worse. CVG finds that architecture and design firms often engage in our services because they want to be more aware of themselves and use the information to improve their collaboration internally, with their partners and with their clients.
