Strengths Coaching Empowers Results
Studies prove that Strengths Coaching is the most effective method for optimal performance. Research shows that developing our natural abilities (our strengths) more than overcoming our weaknesses propels personal growth. In a society that promotes fixing our vulnerabilities presents a severe challenge to reverse thinking towards positive thought.
The Key Benefits of Strengths-based Leaders:
- Higher performance
- Improved teamwork
- Increase in energy
- Self-awareness & acceptance
- Significant clarity
- More confidence
- Greater work fulfillment
- More collaborative communications
- Learning to manage both strengths & weaknesses
Many misinterpret that we shouldn’t focus any energy on weaknesses and accept them as who we are. On the contrary, by focusing on our natural strengths, our positive attributes far outweigh our limitations. We still strive to become better in certain areas that are logical. However, forcing ourselves to become better at an activity that we know we will never succeed or enjoy is meaningless. For example, a person who struggles in math but thrives in English most likely will not make a good accountant. However, they could very well become a famous author.
The CliftonStrengths (FKA StrengthsFinder) assessment unlocks and reveals a person’s talents. We call this their strength DNA. Adding strengths coaching expertise equips leaders with profound intelligence, resulting in greater success at work and life.
Workplace Benefits of Strengths Coaching
In addition to the benefits mentioned above, there are countless workplace rewards by implementing a strengths-based culture. Strengths coaching for teams in the workplace is the ultimate diversity and inclusion solution on top of team building and employee engagement. Even further, we find studies showing a 26%-72% reduction in turnover rates.

“Taking the Gallup StrengthsFinder 2.0 assessment (re-branded today as CliftonStrengths) dramatically changed my life. Upon receiving my top 5 assessment report, I could see my unique design. It validated certain personality attributes that drive my behavior. In 2011, I led a team-building and employee engagement initiative using Gallup StrengthsFinder assessments with the IT department. Amazingly it broke down personality differences. By applying strengths coaching and training, we improved performance, team camaraderie, and overall loyalty. As you can imagine, I was an immediate believer in the methodology and positive psychology science. Understanding the diversity of our strengths make-up empowers us with personal intelligence to pull from for ourselves and leverage the strengths of others.
