Michael Dauphinee helps leaders navigate their greatest challenges.
After finishing college, a stint working in juvenile drug rehab and six years with Hewlett-Packard convinced him he had to work for himself. Founding the Dauphinee Group in 2005, Michael became one of the world’s most
sought-after strengths consultants, training and coaching at com- panies like Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, The Detroit Lions, the US Olympic Committee, Upside Travel, Kaiser Permanente, Chick-fil-A, and United Way Worldwide.
In 2010, Michael expanded into international development, specializing in security, governance, and justice in fragile and conflict-affected environments. He currently coaches entrepreneurs, embassies, universities, and governments in Nigeria, Honduras, Costa Rica, El Salvador, and Afghanistan.
Inspired by his trek through Torres del Paine in Chilean Pata- gonia, Michael founded Dauphinee Adventures in 2013. Clients have trekked hundreds of miles with him in Chile, Peru, and Nepal while wrestling with their most significant questions.
Always looking for ways to inspire others to navigate their lives courageously, Michael is a sought-after keynote speaker and shares daily inspiration online.
As a Gallup-Certified® Strengths coach using the Clifton StrengthsFinder 2.0® assessment, I have coached thousands of people in using a Strengths-based approach to help enable effectiveness, increase productivity, and win at life. I am a teacher at heart, and have spent the past 25 years educating, managing, and leading people of all ages to improve their performance through innovative professional development and strategic talent solutions. Raised in Boise Idaho, I dream of one day living in Ireland. I love to travel, outdoor adventures, live music, my three daughters, and helping others find their power within.
I recognize, appreciate, and share with listeners, that leadership is a moment-to-moment choice and not about title, tenure or position. Leadership is for everyone, every day. It's how we should live our life and I wholeheartedly believe in the phrase "Lead by example." I am passionate about inspiring people to lead at every level. I consider myself a builder of happiness in the workplace and have an unwavering belief that it is possible for everyone to love what they do. Business begins and ends with people. This truth allows me to make shifts in culture that positively affect not only the business itself, but the greater community. When teams are able to communicate with authenticity and trust, high performance is a by product. Finding what individuals are the best at and creating teams that leverage those strengths on a daily basis is what I do best. Cultivating internal leaders, partnership alignments, professional wellness, performance coaching, succession planning, and ultimately creating cultures where employees thrive is my ultimate goal.
My ability to provide coaching and strategic solutions in the areas of Strengths-based performance, leadership development, and organizational effectiveness. I have had the honor to work with such clients as: Skanska, Micron, Hewlett Packard, The Gap, Sensus Engineering, ESI Construction, ZGA Architecture, Downey Unified School District, Pomona Unified School District, Anthropologie, multiple Boards of Directors, private schools, various state departments and a variety of businesses ranging from the sole proprietor, non-profit organizations, start-ups, to fortune 500 businesses.

In 2010, I attended a workshop on the Gallup Campus as part of the Special Olympics National Youth Activation Summit. Having taken the CliftonStrengths assessment prior to attending, I was already amazed at how accurate it was and how well it described me. During the workshop I had the opportunity to understand even more about the assessment, about the potential impact, and how it could be used for individuals as well as teams.
Being so impressed by my experience there, I purchased a dozen StrengthsFinder 2.0 books and passed them out to my team at Special Olympics North Carolina. All of my staff and interns took the assessment and we started our journey into being a strengths-based team. We began to work together more effectively and not just meet but surpass goals year after year. After seeing the success with my team, the rest of the Special Olympics North Carolina staff took the assessment as well as the statewide Youth Council.
In 2013 I was one of the first 100 students in Gallup's Accelerated Strengths Coaching class and earned my certification as a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach. I've had the pleasure of working with clients of all ages - teens to adults - and all professions - from front line and technical staff to executive teams and boards. In 2018, I was also trained in Employee Engagement using the Q12 assessment and process as well as the Builder Profile 10 for Entrepreneurs.
Moving to Colorado in 2016 I started Pikes Peak Coaching & Consulting to spread the benefits of strengths based teams and coaching to the Pikes Peak Region, Colorado and the rest of the mountain states.

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 collaboratively helping clients learn to discover knowledge, rather than relying on a training model or rote learning, and strive to accomplish learning objectives within an environment of mutual respect and dignity. I look forward to partnering with you to achieve your goals!

Grow with Strengths - Growing People Growing Companies As an HR professional of a rapidly growing company in 2010, I fell in love with the philosophy of Strengths. I decided to lead the efforts in building a Strengths-based organization and never looked back. I was surprised at some of the things I saw early on in the process. Very quickly, people built strong relationships at work where they gave each other the benefit of the doubt. Over time, they challenged and supported each other more. We wove Strengths into the onboarding, performance systems, and everyday conversations and meetings - people and teams grew stronger, listened more effectively, and asked for help more. We built a culture that was so strong and obvious, both internally and externally. It helped our recruiting and retention. Managers became Coaches for their teams and gave feedback in real time.
What I believe to be true: When we pause to give each other the benefit of the doubt, we open up the opportunity to connect, understand and find the true value in ourselves and others.
I take the time to get to know each individual on the team - and we all dive in together. My style is energetic and thoughtful. I believe that we learn through practice and we have a lot of fun while we’re learning. I’ve been fortunate to do work that I’ve really loved for over 30 years in HR, talent development, coaching, employee engagement, and wellness.
Here's what I do well - please let me know if I can help you and your business. 1. Develop managers into great coaches that win. 2. Build a nimble organization poised for growth and change. 3. Build the culture you want to get the results you want. 4. Keep the great talent that you worked so hard to acquire.
Here's what people are saying about working with me as a coach or facilitator:
Cindy and I worked together from 2013-2017. In that time she exposed me to the wonderful world of StrengthsFinders. It was part of our on-boarding to take the assessment and learn about our strengths. As I learned more about the strengths I have, Cindy was there to help guide me and my team through team building workshops to see how these strengths worked together across the team. Cindy is very knowledgeable in StrengthsFinders and the work we did in her workshop changed the course of our team dynamic for the better. We were able to communicate more kindly to one another and utilize our strengths appropriately in the tasks and projects we were assigned. Cindy's work is beneficial to any team whether they are in rough waters or not. They will come out better than before with Cindy leading the boat.

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.

I really like how Lorraine uses her past work experiences and perspectives to provide advice that comes from the 'trenches.'

I am a career coach certified in both the CliftonStrengths and MBTI. I coach professionals in the healthcare industry and college students to leverage their unique talent themes to reach their professional goals with clarity and productivity. My expertise is in building bridges in organizations and maximizing individual's talent themes for meaningful success and well-being.
While innovation and technology are influencing all sectors of the economy, my mission is to help teams and individuals maximize the best of who they already are and deliver their unique contributions to build a trusting and effective community engagement. I believe innovation is most valuable when the the outcomes deliver a positive impact for humanity, not just individuals. To achieve this, I help individuals develop their raw talents to a mature level of performance that's beneficial to all.
I have been honored the 2016-2017 Woman of the Year Award with NAPW because of my commitment and leadership to my profession.
My deep passion to become a CliftonStrengths coach evolved from my first career as a school psychologist. As a school psychologist, I routinely saw students disengaged from their educational programs, which resulted in my concern for their transition to college and later employability. Therefore, to help all professionals increase engagement and students to attain their educational goals, I furthered my education in Career Education and Counseling. I also became certified in CliftonStrengths, MBTI and the Strong Interest Inventory to create the most positive impact in my coaching sessions with professionals and students. I should also note that I am an avid painter.
With Maximizer being my first theme on the StrengthsFinder, I am hard-wired to leverage on your talent themes. I am energized by helping both professionals and students achieve professional breakthroughs through the lens of Strengths. This insightful discovery occurred when I received a customized report, igniting a transformation in my personal development, my career, and my purpose. I look forward to your transformation with CliftonStrengths.
