Why Knowing Your Strengths Is Important

According to the 2016 Gallup State of the American Workforce Report:

  • Employees who are supervised by highly engaged Managers are 59% more likely to be engaged than those supervised by actively disengaged Managers
  • Just 29% of Managers in America are highly engaged
  • Only 3 in 10 American employees are engaged
  • There is a 21% greater profitability from engaged business units
  • The cost of disengagement could be as high as $300 million annually in lost productivity
  • The world’s best organizations have an employee engagement rate of 7 in 10

Let's work together to increase engagement.

Ongoing Management Coaching

People leave managers, not companies. Or to put it another way, organizations do not have a culture; each manager does. The goal is to transform managers from “Boss” to “Coach." Employees value someone taking an interest in their development, yet only 3 in 10 strongly feel that is encouraged at work.

Individual coaching starts with exploring the employee’s strengths and helping increase his or her understanding of them. The coach will work with the employee to leverage those strengths in a journey to excellence.

Understanding Your Strengths: Individual

Self-awareness is the pathway to personal and professional improvement. I will take you from learning about your strengths to aiming them for success. You will leave with an individualized development plan we create together.

Understanding Your Strengths: Team

The first step towards high performance with each other is understanding how our strengths can work together for the greatest success. This engagement focuses on the Team and the Manager. All members will learn their strengths. The Coach will meet with the entire group, with the Team without the Manager, and with the Manager for an individual session. The goal is to jump-start the team members into using their strengths to maximize their effectiveness.
