My Dream: Strengths Coach

I am excited to share my dream of becoming a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach.

 Back in January 2017, my life changed while in my doctorate class-- I took the StrengthsFinder Assessment 2.0. The assessment  not only allowed me to “discover” my top five talents, it also showed me how I  could further invest in my talents to develop them into strengths.


 I am such a believer that focusing on strengths leads to overall success that I knew I needed to share it with my KHEAA outreach colleagues. Next thing you know, I was helping to facilitate my colleagues taking the assessment and being trained on why and how to use their strengths personally and professionally.

By this time I was hooked!

 I read everything I could about strengths. I read the Strengths-Based parenting book and even gave my daughter a Strengths Explorer assessment so she could gain more confidence about her natural abilities and talents and I could be better equipped to raise her and help cultivate her strengths.

I recently learned that Gallup offers training to those who want to become certified Strengths Coaches and as you can probably tell, the lightbulb went off for me a while ago:  I saw myself as a Strengths Coach—where I could encourage and coach others (Something I do now, every single day)

The training is 4 ½ days,  June 4-8 in Nashville, TN.  and the registration is $7500. I know this is a part of what I am purposed to do, and I believe God.  So, I am asking you to sow into good ground.

Becoming a Gallup-certified Strengths Coach will allow me to impact people’s lives by helping others discover their talents and develop them into strengths that contribute to moving their lives  and communities forward.

Please pray for me in this journey and thank you for your love and support!
