I help people experiencing Life’s Big Changes and Challenges develop their strengths and increase their resilience
Show Julie Wechsler, Ed.D.'s bio

Whether you’re a student making a big decision about your future, or someone who’s a little farther along in life and dealing with change or an unexpected health issue, you have the opportunity to thrive.

Maybe you’re not sure what’s unique about you, or how best to use what you have to manage the experiences you’re having. Maybe you just want more out of life but aren’t sure what it is or how to get there.

I help people assess their wellbeing, identify and develop their strengths, and create action plans and accountability systems to move from just surviving to thriving.

I’ve had the opportunity to work with lots of people using this strengths-based approach to wellbeing. Over a five-year period, I provided strengths coaching to more than a hundred students. Many of these students started college not knowing what was special about them, but at our college they were given the opportunity to discover and develop their strengths. Retention and student success improved, and many of these young people are now attending graduate school, working in meaningful careers, and experiencing high levels of wellbeing.

I've also worked with cancer survivors, and other people dealing with a big change like retirement or the loss of a job. By identifying and developing their strengths, and clarifying their goals, I’ve seen people experiencing health challenges and big changes begin to thrive through a focus on their strengths.

And lastly, here’s a story about how a strengths-based approach to wellbeing worked for me. In 2015, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and I spent the next year in treatment. At first I couldn't imagine how I would manage. But because of my experience as a strengths coach, I knew that I'd be more powerful more engaged if I used my strengths. So I created a plan to use my Relator, Futuristic, and Maximizer strengths to build relationships with other patients and the nurses in the infusion room, and together we designed our healthy futures. It wasn't always easy, but I know that I was stronger and more resilient throughout that year because I focused on using my strengths. Twelve months later, the Doctor described me as NED - no evidence of disease - and I was free to resume my life. I'm different now, and much more clear about my life. As a result of my cancer journey, I've also become very clear about the power of using our Strengths to experience wellbeing.

If you're experiencing changes or challenges in your life, or aren't sure about what's next for you, I believe I can help you with your next steps. Here are a few of my qualifications:

Coaching Credentials: Certifications from Gallup and the College of Executive Coaching Education: Ed.D. Educational Leadership, M.A. Communication, B.S. Business Administration Experience: IBM, Organizational Development, Training and Facilitation, 12 years in the Maricopa Community College System. Regular presenter at regional and national conferences on the topic of strengths and wellbeing Personal: Wife, Mom, Step-Mom, loves yoga, the outdoors, and the beauty of Arizona

Please contact me for a conversation about how I might help you. I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

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 journey with strengths began in the fall of 2000 when I came to Omaha for Strengths Coach certification training at Gallup. My graduate education research path had been drawn toward training first-time college students in the use and application of their identified strengths. The Gallup organization and Dr. Edward Chip Anderson, graciously partnered with me on the project, and provided in-house support, mentoring and guidance along the way.

During the exit interviews with each of the students at the end of their first semester, I asked them for a takeaway or a realization from the semester training sequence they had completed. One young lady looked at me and said...for the first time in my life, I feel like it's okay to be ME! From that moment on, I was hooked on the power of the strengths approach. I knew that for this kind of impact to be made in the few weeks I had worked with her, that many more were seeking ways to understand themselves better and leverage their greatest strengths.

In the 18 years since, my focus is using my strengths to help grow, mentor, and invest in others. Maximizers love to help others achieve excellence, and sharpen their focus and clarity in their work and lives! My joy and passion is in seeing people realize how much they are capable of, knowing they were meant for more, and helping them build for that future. Whether it is a phone call, a video call, or a one-on-one connection in person, the journey we can forge together will be a game-changer.

Expertise Areas: Strengths Training, Leadership Training & Development, Mentoring & Coaching Early Career Professionals, Executive Coaching, and Teaching.

Specialties: Trained 600-700 leaders in business & graduate education on their Top Strengths. SAOL certified Executive Coach & Consultant, Rubi Ho Group. Corporate training and team-building.

My greatest joy as a Maximizer is connecting with and coaching others in a way that challenges and inspires them to become the best version of themselves.

Strengths University was co-founded by Anne Brackett and Alicia Wojciuch in 2017. Our team has combined 30 years of experience training, coaching, and supporting students, faculty, and staff. Both Alicia and Anne are Gallup Certified Strengths Coaches and are committed to helping you develop your talents into Strengths. Strengths University specializes in education. Whether you're a High School/college student or an administrator/staff/faculty member at a High School or college/university, we want to partner with you to develop a personalized plan to help you reach your goals and be the best you you can be. We do individual coaching, as well as group training.

We empower people. We believe that everyone benefits when individuals understand, appreciate, and develop their own unique set of talents. When people know who they are and what they do best, they are happier, more productive, more engaged, more successful, and treat others with respect and compassion.

Anne's Bio | I have worked in Higher Education for almost 20 years. I've seen so many students, faculty, and staff struggle because they haven’t found their voice, discovered their strengths, or how to use them. Over the years, I have trained and coached students, student leaders, administrators, faculty, and staff about assertiveness, interpersonal communication, engagement, teamwork, and anything else I thought would help them better manage the issues they faced. I empower people by giving them the skills they need to develop their talents, advocate for themselves, and better understand others. Once people know who they are and what they can do, they treat others and, often more importantly themselves with the respect they deserve.

Alicia's Bio | I have always been dedicated to serving others, especially those who have faced significant challenges in their lives. I have worked in Higher Education for the past 10 years. In every facet of my career, I’ve advocated for the people I work with to make sure they had their best chance at overcoming any obstacle and being successful. When I discovered Strengths almost five years ago, I knew my approach to coaching and supporting others would never be the same. Now when I work with students, staff, or faculty, I use my knowledge to help them discover their own talents and the talents of those around them. I am energized when I’m helping someone navigate and develop their talents to become the best and most authentic version of themselves. The best part of my day is seeing someone’s reaction when they discover something new about themselves, their abilities, or their lives. My passion is helping other people find theirs.
