Does anyone have information, research, etc. on how knowing your strengths can help with motivation?
I am specifically looking for a link between students' motivation to do well in college, complete school, or even come to class. Does knowing and using your strengths affect motivation?
You may want to check out Dr. Shane Lopez' GALLUP STUDENT POLL NATIONAL REPORT. It comments on such measures as Hope, Engagement and well-being. The poll was conducted with students in grades 5-12. You might also want to check out Dr. Michelle Louis' A SUMMARY AND CRITIQUE OF EXISTING STRENGTHS-BASED EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH UTILIZING THE CLIFTON STRENGTHS-FINDER.
These and more are available from the Clifton Strengths School site under Research. I have also attached these two items here.
