“I don’t need CliftonStrengths because the validation of each other’s strengths is already ingrained in our culture”.

Another major concern is that CliftonStrengths is not accurate. Some would go so far to say that it is not backed with legitimate research.

Among all the reasons laid out, I consider this to be the most compelling. It is undeniable that other profiling tools possess their unique strengths and advantages (e.g., ease of understanding, price-points, usability….) and I do not want to claim that CliftonStrengths comes out on top, without first addressing the 5 other reasons.
