Strengths@Massey consists of an online talent assessment developed by Gallup followed by a short series of face-to-face workshops run on campus by experienced facilitators.

Working through the Strengths programme will help you identify areas in your life where you hold the most potential – your key talents. Once you have identified your talents, you will learn how to understand them, grow them into genuine strengths, and intentionally leverage them in your life to achieve your goals.


Success: Better performance comes from doing what you naturally do best. Research has shown that successful people know and build on their talents, apply their talents in daily life and are able to make the most of their uniqueness.

Knowledge: Knowing your natural talents, and how to maximise them, you will be able to identify courses and craft a career that allows you to do what you do best.

Self-Development: Strengths is a journey where you will discover, develop and apply who you truly are. As you do this, your self-identity and personal values should become clearer, and as a result, you will likely become more confident, optimistic, and focused.
