About the tool

Strengthscope® is a world leading, online strengths assessment system that measures an individual’s work-related strengths-underlying characteristics that energise a person, enabling them to achieve their best performance at work.

Understanding of individual strengths can increase self-awareness, improve performance and help to target development. We have a number of trained Strengthscope Practitioners at the University of Bath who can provide a tailored debrief session to explain an individual profile and explore how to apply strengths to meet goals.

Types of profiles

The tool can provide the following types of profiles:


  • An individual report showing your full strengths profile, your significant 7 strengths, and your strengths in overdrive.


  • An individual report as above, incorporating feedback from stakeholders/colleagues who you nominate. This provides feedback on how effectively you are using your strengths, risks to your performance and recommendations to strengthen your performance.


  • Individual profiles are collated in order to provide a picture of strengths at a team level. This can help to identify how to make the most of strengths within a team, to improve team relationships and to increase performance.
