O'Fallon, Missouri, USA

As your coach my desire is to consider ways to build you up in your strengths to the good work you are called to do throughout your community. As Donald Clifton once said, when you discover your talents you begin to discover your calling. When you invest in those talents to become strengths, and begin using those strengths, you fulfill your calling.

My story is unique, involving seminary, international missions, new church plants, with a great mix of the corporate world. As I discovered my own talents through Gallup’s Clifton Strengths, I realized I was empowered to succeed in a variety of work environments. In other words, my calling (from a great Greek word, "kaleo") had to do with the positive application of my strengths instead of a job title.

I am passionate about coaching people to understand how the calling in your life begins with what is right about you; i.e., your natural talents. I have coached both teens and adults in one on one coaching sessions, or in group workshops. Regardless, my strategy begins by interpreting your Clifton Strengths results, diving into coaching sessions to understand how your talents have been influencing your patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving, then carving a plan to aim those talents at your goals for providing a good work in your community. My clients include high school students, church staffs, and chiropractic teams.

My name is Travis Guse and my passion as a coach is to empower emerging adults and the organizations they work for to be their best through Strengths-based coaching solutions.

My primary focus is working with organizations that are seeking to better engage both Millennials and now Gen Z for the sake of their mission and purpose. With our growing economy, retaining employees is becoming more challenging for organizations. With more jobs, employees have more choices for work than they did a decade ago. As a result, employers face increasing competition for high-talent performers. Emerging adults are seeking for organizations to invest in their development in a holistic approach both personally as well as professionally. Those organizations that make this a priority will find that emerging adults with be significantly more engaged in their work, especially when they can discover how the best of who they are connects with the organization's mission. Not only that, they will have a better chance of retaining them. To this end I offer Strengths-based leadership development coaching, team-building workshops, training managers to be effective coaches, and assisting in career direction.

As an ICF certified Life and Executive Coach and a Gallup Strengths Coach, I have been coaching individuals and organizations to discover and live out the best of who they are in life since 2008. I also offer ICF certified coach training to raise up internal coaches within organizations. Currently I am earning my doctorate in the field of Coaching with a focus on empowering Millennials to discover and live out their meaning and purpose in life. I have also contracted with government organizations to do Strengths team-building workshops, and currently have SAM & DUNS registration.

Maggie Harris

HENDERSON, Nevada, USA
Looking at what's great about people to grow successful Marketing organizations
Show Maggie Harris's bio

We are all familiar with the phrase "When a door closes, a window opens." For many, it’s just rhetoric - usually from some well-meaning friend or family member. For me, it is the absolute truth that led me to become an inspired and transformational coach.

I’d always been that kid in whom others could confide and I remember being astonished when people would share their fears and insecurities. I saw (and see) so much in people – things they don’t see are haven’t ever realized. And I told them so!

Fast forward to college where I majored in Communications and then onto a career in Advertising and Marketing. Somewhere along the way, I realized that the part of my job that I loved the most – and where I was most successful – was in relationship building and talent development. In fact, it sometimes felt as if I was the only person who realized how critical the people were to the success of the organization.

So, in 2016 I left a 29-year career in Marketing and Advertising and decided to do what I loved more than anything and I became a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach and Consultant.

I was first introduced to Strengths in 2002 when I was part of a team who brought it to the Advertising agency where I worked. I fell in love. I worked with Strengths for the next 14 years and when I left the agency world in 2016, I knew that it was my calling.

My consulting and coaching focus is in three areas:

1. Leadership (Individuals): I work with leaders of organizations to understand their talents and help them turn those talents into Strengths. Each client is different and requires different approaches. Strengths is the cornerstone, along with creating positive habits and incorporating the principles of Emotional Intelligence. 2. Leadership (Teams): The very best leaders know their strengths and their limitations. The most effective leadership teams are made up of individuals who complement each other and are not only self-aware but know how to self-regulate. The beauty about working with Leadership teams is the positive effect the work can have on an entire organization. 3. Organizations with 10-150 people: From my early years of working with Strengths, I have been worked with teams. Team dynamics is one of my passions and I have been successful at working to identify team strengths and how people can not only be aware of what others bring to the table but accept and embrace the differences. I help create highly engaged teams which lead to higher productivity, positivity, and profit.

My 30 years in Marketing and Advertising provide me with a perspective that many companies appreciate because I have first-hand experience of what many of them face daily. Organizations that are highly creative, high-energy and matrixed are among my most successful clients.

I have worked with Marketing, Advertising and PR companies as well as manufacturing, non-profit and higher education. I prefer small and mid-size companies where I can really get the know the people and understand the mission.

My top five Strengths are Harmony, Positivity, Maximizer, Developer, and Connectedness. I love what I do, and I am fortunate to do what I do best every day.

Show Dr. James R. Jones, Ph.D.'s bio

For a period of over 30 years, first as a corporate human resource management professional, more recently as a university professor, and now as a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach, a major part of my mission has been assisting individuals in the process of ‘learning how to learn.’ That endeavor has been characterized by a tripartite philosophy of teaching/education that views education as the key to knowledge, knowledge as the key to understanding, and understanding as the key to our continued collective existence. In service of that philosophy I take an approach to coaching that focuses on helping clients learn to discover knowledge, rather than relying on a training model or rote learning, and strive to accomplish learning goals within an environment of mutual respect and dignity.

My effective zones:

1. Strategic Operations Management - I am likened to a ship’s rudder, a gatekeeper, a litmus filter. I steer conversations and discussions, and regularly challenge decisions and action plans. However, this is not with intention to be a pain to disrupt or create contention. Rather, it is with the aim to harness collaborative synergy of thoughts and perspectives to arrive at the most appropriate (quality) course of action.

2. Human Entrepreneurship. It is my innate desire to identify, establish and activate a person’s intrinsic potential (a talent scout/director). It is to encourage the individual to develop his/her strengths zones and so become more effective, engaged, and productive at life. Like fire starters, an enzyme binders, I seek out the best in each person, identify their unique talent zones, bring these individuals together and fuse them into high energy teams.

3. Calibrator – Barometer – Pole Vaulter: The images are chosen to reflect my propensity to qualifying work and services from the point of quality and meeting expectations. It is a statement of my commitment to upholding the professional integrity of delivering on quality. Much like a pole-vaulter, there is always another notch higher for the reach. Likewise, there is an inner element which propels me to pursue and bring out the next best in the individual and the organisation.

Life gave me opportunities to work in diverse fields from engineering to sales and marketing; from insurance and banking to retail operation and education.

With more than 20 years of work experiences, I have identified and established that my core effective zone is in harnessing the efficiency and effectiveness of individuals and processes. The outcome of identifying, understanding and empowering personal core effective zones fuels the individual to gain greater confidence in themselves. The collaborative sum of these effective individuals will form a highly effective team.

I am in the superpower business. I help people name their talents, take ownership of them and then use them to do amazing things.

I am a Strengths sherpa. I help amazing people find their way by exploiting the talents they possess. I help them see the path forward, select and haul some of the tools while noting their successes and recommending ways to work past stuff that gets in the way.

I am especially interested in working with:

1. People at a transformational point who are trying to figure out what's next, like job seekers, career changers and those who feel stuck.

2. Organizations who want staff to be happier, more effective and more engaged. I have done this with government, libraries and non-profits.

3. Anyone desirous to be more aligned with their hows and whys.

I used to be a research librarian. I have a knack for helping people figure out the questions they are trying to ask and then helping find the resource that hold the answers. It's a librarian thing.

I used to be a Mariner. I have been in the middle of the ocean and found my way with the stars, a sextant and a compass. Now I help people find their way with their Strengths, desire and effort. It's a navigator thing.

So if you want to release your superpowers and you need a coach, a sherpa, a researcher, a navigator, then we need to talk.
