Founder of StrengthsBase, StrengthsFinder Expert

Dan believes that everyone brings a unique set of talents and strengths.

However, it's not enough to simply understand that everyone is different. The truly great organizations, teams, and individuals learn how to capitalize on these differences.

Based on more than four decades of research, the Clifton StrengthsFinder® is the greatest tool for helping people find the source of their natural talents. However, simply taking the assessment is not enough.

That’s why I created StrengthsBase, and this course on Udemy.

This course was designed to efficiently lead you down a path of self-discovery and to help you truly unlock your greatest potential.

Studies have shown that individuals who focus on their strengths are 6x more likely to be engaged in their careers.
