DescriptionExplore StrengthsFinder’s approach utilizing the assessment for talent development through one-to-one coaching. Strengths coaching offers professionals the opportunity to fully understand and invest in their talents with the primary purpose of stimulating, motivating, and facilitating the growth, development, and performance of the individual, partner or team.

Coaching has a purpose and supports people to reach their goals and potential by helping them understand who they are and where they want to go. Strengths coaching guides and empowers professionals on their developmental journey, when the support of an alternative perspective or a broadening of their own outlook will make them more effective - even better than they are today.
