Word clouds visually show frequent words or CliftonStrengths themes for a group of people. The more often a word or themes occur, the bigger the word appears in the cloud.
Some teams like to display a collection of their strengths themes. It provides a sense of identity as it visually shows which themes they represent.
Several tools are available online to generate word clouds with a range of styles and features. Some only work with specific computer systems. Try them out to see which one works best for you and your computer.
