Cog Wheels with Collaboration and Trust WordsNo matter their size, non-profits are routinely asked to do more with less…that’s just a given! Non-profits are often under-staffed and overworked, with high staff turnover.

To fulfill their missions and operate effectively, non-profits need to build strong teams! And one of the fastest, easiest ways to do that is to use StrengthsFinder® as a team building tool.

Challenges Of Team Building Within A Non-Profit Organization
Team building within a non-profit presents unique challenges, shaped by circumstances that can include: limited resources, uncertain funding, mission misalignment, burnout, and a diverse workforce comprised of full-time staff, part-time workers, volunteers, and interns.

With a scarcity of resources, it’s imperative that teams operate as effectively, efficiently, and harmoniously as possible.

StrengthsFinder® As A Team Building Tool For Non-Profit Teams
One of the best ways to build a strong team is to use StrengthsFinder®. Developed by the Gallup® organization and now known as CliftonStrengths®, StrengthsFinder® is a personality test that identifies a person’s top 5 strengths (out of 34 possible strengths). The online test takes just 35-45 minutes to complete, and the results are easy to understand and easy to share with other people.

Better Understanding Leads To Better Stronger Teams
Once everyone on a non-profit team understands their own StrengthsFinder® strengths, and the strengths of the other team members, they’re more likely to communicate and collaborate more effectively. They also might be more inclined to ask for help and offer help. And, as importantly, this newfound awareness can help encourage team leaders to assign roles more strategically and less randomly – harnessing the collective power of each individual’s strengths to build a stronger, more productive team.
