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.
I have over a decade of leadership experience with non-profits in East Asia, and my passion is to see people discover and live out their core identity and uniqueness, fulfilling their life purpose with vitality. Having overcome extreme adversity that led to clinical depression while living in Asia, I have found complete freedom and wholeness and am now known for my joy and vitality for life. I bring this same experience of breakthrough to my clients, helping them find joy and personal and professional development in the midst of the challenges and adversities they face. I live in East Asia with my wife and our four young daughters.

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.
If we could meet over a cup of coffee instead of here online, I would be thrilled. Meeting new people is so much fun for me! One of my greatest joys and passions is connecting with people on a personal level. For now, though, we’ll settle for a virtual tour.
Here are a few quick facts about me:
I’m an author, speaker, and life coach whose goal is transformation of the mind, body, and spirit.
I'm an author coach that specializes in helping aspiring authors finally write their book, while simultaneously growing their platform so they have a ready audience once it is published.
I’m a book launch expert who helps authors connect with readers and maximize their reach by harnessing the power of social media.
I’m an avid reader whose personal growth journey has been shaped by an arsenal of books.
I'm a memoirist as well. My book, The Polygamist's Daughter (Tyndale, 2017) is in it's third printing!
I’m a mom to five grown kids with my first grandchild arriving in May 2019! I live in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
My name is Anna, pronounced "Awe-nuh" like the girl in the Disney movie, Frozen!
Now it’s your turn to introduce yourself and tell me how I can help you!
Our secret sauce?
My leadership training and employee development programs consider the symbiotic nature of the mind-body connection and its impact on performance, leadership, and decision making. Because of this, I can guarantee that transformation in relationships, results, and revenue will happen.
How would you answer these questions?
If life is a game, how do we play it?
If life is a challenge, how do we meet it?
If life is an opportunity, how do we capture it?
If life was meant to be meaningful, how do you step up to lead self and others, and live with purpose?
The answers to these questions are unique to you. I have answered these questions for myself (and facilitated others) by learning how to access my "inner-tools." As a Mindfulness practitioner and my own personal journey to enhance my health and energy, I understand how to "hack" our biology and psychology to meet the challenge of living a "productive" life, fight back the effects of stress, and self-lead to become an effective leader. The quality of the journey we experience is truly up to us.
As a Team Performance Specialist and Strengths-based Human Potential Coach to businesses, organizations, Fortune 500 companies, and Leaders engaged in their self-development, I facilitate a more effective leader and company culture shifts improving engagement and retention.
All training, coaching, and retreats for Strengthen-TheTeam™ | StrengthenHER™ | Strengthen-TheLEADERSHIP™ | Strengthen-TheSalesTeams™ and LeadershipBIOHACKING™ integrate evidence-based strengths psychology, emotional intelligence, health and wellbeing principles, alongside the neuroscience of multiple brain integration, and mindfulness.

It's Monday morning and instead of being excited for the week, or even excited to get out of bed, you're wishing it was still the weekend. I too have struggled with this feeling but it doesn't have to be that way. I understand what it is like to be in a job you dread...I've been in that exact position! You may think..."the problem is my manager", but sometimes it can be the way we're approaching our job responsibilities.
Allow me to coach you through your StrengthsFinder assessment results and help create a path on how to achieve your goals, whether that is becoming more engaged in your current role or starting to look for positions that align better with your talents. As a coach with Developer in their Top 5, I can see the potential in others and get excited when they overcome challenges. I would love the opportunity to not only be your coach but also your cheerleader!

Workshop attendees have described his unique blend of professionalism and charisma as captivating and valuable. Jonathan goes above and beyond with all clients, ranging from the organizational level down to the individual.

Too many people focus on fixing what's "wrong" with themselves, instead of appreciating and leveraging the unique, innate talents they already possess. However, research clearly shows the fastest, most effective path to success is focus on strength, not weakness. So, I guide individuals and teams into their "strengths zone" - their personalized path of greatest potential.
Using the power of CliftonStrengths, we: 1. unlock the unique greatness of each person 2. learn how to build talent into strength 3. leverage those strengths for greater success and overall well-being
MY COACHING PROMISE As your coach, I promise to offer the best of me to help you love your talents as they are, but to love yourself too much to leave them there. Your growth is my goal. Together, we will work to uncover and empower your most authentic self - for your good, and the good of others. I promise.
Biography: How I serve clients: As a Dreambuilder Coach and Life Mastery Consultant certified through the Life Mastery Institute, I can help you design and manifest a life that’s in harmony with your soul’s purpose. For over 30 years I have been a professional nurse serving individuals, families and communities in varied settings and organizations, guiding and accompanying them in achieving their holistic health and life goals. I have offered my skills, presence and support which have enlivened US military soldiers and officers, congressman and senators, faith community, business and cultural leaders, students in higher education, and many individuals and families in all walks of life, guiding them through normative life transitions and through life crises. My greatest growth and joy has been in the parenting of six beautiful children, now grown and living meaningful lives, contributing their unique gifts to life!
My journey in becoming a transformational life coach and LifeMastery consultant: In my life I have journeyed through many transitions, both joyful and painful. In contemplating the meaning and purpose in all of it, the question has been the most powerful in helping me to integrate and move forward in my life has been: "Who Am I?" This question leads to more questions and ultimately to connection to true purpose and meaning.
I believe life is fully lived in asking and living the questions, making intentional life-empowering decisions, then setting new and amazing goals and taking action! In asking myself powerful questions throughout my life and experience and learning teachings given to me through the Life Mastery Institute, I have become clear that I am a healer and guide for others through life transitions, and leading them to new possibilities.
I know the power of God (Spirit, LIFE, infinite intelligence, love) in me and through me. I know, as my mentor Mary Morrissey says, "that each one of us is far more powerful and contains more potential than any circumstance, situation or condition." I am. And you are. As a life coach and professional educator and speaker, I offer inspiring workshops to audiences around the country as well as transformational in-depth coaching programs that help clients achieve new heights of success, meaning and spiritual aliveness. I would LOVE to serve YOU! I am thrilled as I witness amazing transformations in my clients' lives!
Combining this background with the proven DreamBuilder technology, I am now helping clients anywhere they are in the world achieve extraordinary results, accelerating the manifestation of their vision! I work with people over the phone and through teleconferencing to transform their lives and close the gap between the life they were living and the life they LOVE living.
I help get desired results by magnifying potential and shattering the limiting beliefs or habitual thinking which holds businesses, teams and careers back! I have guided businesses from a drought to reaching monthly grosses in a week and professionals connect with their dream jobs in a matter of months.
I focus on teaching habits which strengthen a process of positive change, driven by worthy goals designed to inspire and deeply motivate. Through this process, I believe all business and people can unlock passion and unlimited potential.
I help facilitate this process by building a strong relationship of trust and an intuitive understanding of your needs and how you think. I will respectfully challenge your thinking and paradigms, while building your confidence and dignity as we work together to identify and overcome barriers. I patiently influence this change by believing in all you are capable of, so you can make the most out of the opportunities in your business and your life.
While coaching, I engage you in critical conversations and empowering invitations to accept accountability for your learning and success. My clients have remarked, "[Todd] was the best coach I could have asked for;" and "If it wasn’t for Todd, I would not have followed through with my ambitions!"
In business, I am a proven, natural leader who is driven to make ideas a reality and talented in communicating with C-Suite Executives and other stakeholders. Continually, my supervisors have observed, "Todd has quickly become an excellent resource and a natural leader;" "Todd is leading the team" and "at the top of his game!"
Team members comment: "I admire [Todd’s] character and integrity to do what is right despite popular opinion;" "[Todd] inspires people to have confidence in themselves;" and "Todd is a great force to have in your corner when promoting winning ideas."
I believe we all have greatness in us. That's why SkyLimit Coaching's tag line is "Find Your Greatness!" But what exactly does that mean?
Albert Einstein once said, "Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree it will live its whole life believing it is stupid." You have the answers in you to overcome any obstacle, change any situation and reach every single goal you have wanted to accomplish. Let me help you discover your best self and find your greatness. I promise it's there!
As a coach, I work with people to help them discover and use their strengths, to find their power and to believe they can make a difference in this world. I'll be your thought partner, accountability partner and encourager.

WHAT I BELIEVE:
I believe when we are clear on our natural talents, our confidence is bolstered, and we become more willing to take risks in service of that which is more important to us than our irrational doubts and fears.
...Because we all have doubts. ...Even highly confident people do. We are, after all, only human.
I believe barriers and conflict between people melt away as they begin to truly appreciate their own unique talents as well as seeing value in the natural gifts of others.
I believe that maximized talent appreciation and workplace application of those talents exponentially increases our impact -- both individually and as a collective.
First and foremost, I believe in positivity, kindness and personal responsibility.
I spent nearly 30 years in the corporate world, in both the advertising and pharmaceutical sectors prior to officially becoming a strengths-based executive coach and leadership development facilitator.
I know what it's like to be an advertising professional servicing clients, as well as what it's like to wear the client-side hat, and the challenges that come with each. I also understand that the pharmaceutical industry comes with unique challenges due to FDA regulation and restriction, having worked on both OTC, DTC and animal care product initiatives. I have worked with brand management marketing professionals to help them up their own professional game, and have helped to develop their staff to become stronger, confident leaders.
While not a requirement, I think it's a tremendous benefit to work with a coach or leadership development facilitator who has firsthand experience in the day-to-day and/or bigger picture challenges of their clients for two reasons:
1) Minimal time will need to be spent explaining the client's environment, and,
2) The coach/facilitator will likely to engage with their client in a much more relevant, contextual way.
Major companies with whom I have worked include: Johnson & Johnson, Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, Coca Cola, Molson Breweries, Lever Brothers, JVC Electronics, ZenithMedia, Saatchi & Saatchi, Moxie USA, Ogilvy Healthworld, and have had significant interaction with media companies such as Hearst, Meredith, Conde Nast, Gannett, ABC/Disney among others,
I have also been hired directly for private coaching engagements by a wide range of professional people looking to take their already solid performance to the next level..
I am passionate about finding tools which enlighten people about their fabulous selves.
CLIFTONSTRENGTHS® (formerly called StrengthsFinder®) is my favorite, as no two people's results are alike!

CONTACT ME TO CREATE A SOLUTION THAT'S RIGHT FOR YOU!
Whether you represent a company, looking to develop your employees*, or you are an individual seeking professional development, let's discuss how we might unlock and elevate all that potential. Because there's so much in there!
(*Note: Just because you are a small company, doesn't mean you can't have access to world-class employee development! We can bring in turn-key workshops and strengths-based executive coaching requiring virtually no work by you!)
Hi! My name's Missy, and I'm excited to work with you as a certified coach. I'm an educator by trade and a Christian minister at heart, so I'm thrilled to empower people from all walks of life fulfill their goals, dreams, and destiny. Because I've personally experienced the transformative power of coaching, I believe that everyone (including YOU!) can overcome obstacles in order to live the life they've always imagined.
Are you an educator or student?
I have a Master's of Education degree in higher education leadership and student development, with an emphasis in pastoral care. I'm also a few months away from completing my second master's degree in teaching.
This means that I love working with students and educators/administrators at all levels! I can coach you through 1) personal development goals, 2) career choices, and 3) any other life issue that you want to make progress with; I have extensive experience in this arena.
Are you a Christian?
I've completed two years of Bible school and am currently writing a book about how to hear God's voice. I've experienced radical healing from past emotional wounds, so I've walked the hard journey of freedom. I'm also a go-getter who's meandered through the confusion of discovering God's will for my life... and now I'm finally confident that I'm pursuing the dreams God's had for me all along.
I want to help you deepen your relationship with God as you work through any obstacles that are hindering you from hearing God's voice and fulfilling your destiny. I also want to help you discover your strengths and leverage them to achieve your goals. I can coach you through any issues related to your faith, life, and personal development.
Interested in coaching with me?
I'd love to schedule a 15-minute intro call with you to discuss your dreams and create a game plan. I can also answer any questions you may have. I'm excited to hear from you!
As a Strengths Illuminator, my mission is to help people illuminate their strengths so that can shine their light and be a beacon for others. Everyone has talents and strengths, but not everyone is comfortable with them. I help people own their talents and strengths so they can use them for higher levels of engagement and happiness. Using the CliftonStrengths assessment, which identifies your main areas of talents, I help people connect with their strengths and give them the knowledge to leverage their strengths. I don't have all the answers; I help guide people to solutions and greater self-awareness and how to connect those things to your everyday work and personal life. As we work together toward your goals, we will have routine check-ins and conversations about your goals.
As someone who has felt lost, with their light getting dim by having my strengths dismissed, I hope to help people understand how to shine their light and be a beacon for others.
Design Your MidLife & Beyond is right for you IF you are…. *Thinking of starting a business… after raising your children or following an involuntary retirement from a traditional career? *Contemplating re-entering the workforce but want a completely new career direction. *Planning an end date for your corporate career and uncertain of what’s next but you have folders filled with ideas. *Yearning for something more after trying out “retirement” but not sure what steps to take next.
EACH COACHING RELATIONSHIP IS CUSTOMIZED TO YOU, SO WE WILL FOCUS ON YOU AND YOUR SPECIFIC STICKY AREAS. TOGETHER WE’LL…. *Challenge any dysfunctional beliefs and ungrounded fears that you might hold for this stage of your life *Assess roles you’ve had in the past and determine what you need in your next role to be challenged, appreciated, and feel you are contributing. *Identify those strengths and talents you’ve always had and explore ways to use them in your new plan. *Explore those many next stage ideas you have, using design prototyping methods to determine your true fit and interest. *Explore whether your impact and engagement in the new direction is aligned with your values and lifeview. *Conclude with developing your own action plan for this next life stage.
Ladies, we are not our grandmothers or even our mothers. We are living longer, and as a result, have many more life stages. There is no longer a set age when we should sit back and consume experiences rather than actively contribute to the world around us.
Plus our talents and strengths don’t turn off when we reach a certain milestone. Happiness is generated when we continue to use our strengths to contribute to the community around us and engage in roles that energize and excite us.
Design Your MidLife & Beyond coaching makes the difference. Good design is never done in isolation and that is why coaching works. Working with me, you’ll have created and begin living your unique well-designed life that excites you and moves your happiness meter upwards.

Shortly after an honorable discharge from the U.S. Marine Corps, I was set on a path to becoming a certified Life Coach (Feb. 2015), I've been a student of self-development and life's mysteries, such as the Law of Vibration and the Law of Attraction, for more than 10 years. I am currently a Ph.D. candidate (June 2019) with a specialization as a Holistic Life Counselor with the University of Sedona. I'm also a Reiki practitioner currently pursuing a certification as a Reiki Master (June 2019).
It is my belief that self-fulfillment comes from exceeding one's own personal expectation, which is why I strive to always maintain a reach that's further than my grasp. It's my life's purpose to show others how to inspire themselves to exceed their own expectations with the hope that by doing so, it will enhance the world's vibration for the better.
My wife & I have two jovial and insightful children, and we reside in the state of Maryland just outside of Washington, D.C.
Hi! I’m Liz! As the Chief Operating Officer of a successful Start-Up, I brought Gallup StrengthsFinder to our company to make the most of our employees and bring out their best talents. I am a firm believer that those who live and use their Strengths are happier and more productive both at home and at work.
One of my favorite activities is playing Human Tetris. I love meeting with our teams and finding out what they like and what they hate. Discovering how their talents are being utilized on a daily basis and then reassigning projects or roles based on the best use of talents, has become an enormous productivity boost in our organization.
As a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach, I know that everyone has a combination of Strengths that is unique to them. Working with a coach to understand, embrace and direct those Strengths is a powerful experience. I believe in a holistic approach that supports both your career and personal goals. Each area of happiness in your life improves your ability to be more productive in another.
A couple of summers ago, I had the unexpected opportunity to coach one of Paul Allen’s sons, (Paul was Gallups Global Strengths Evangelist). It was fun to meet his son, but I didn’t think much of our brief conversation. A few months later, while listening to a Gallup Called to Coach podcast, I was astonished to hear Paul share our story with the world.
In hearing him recount the incredible impact our, seemingly insignificant, conversation had on his son; it made me realize the power of coaching. I have since elevated my coaching skills even further by gaining certification through the International Coaching Federation and I want to bring this opportunity to individuals and organizations everywhere. Reading your strengths report is interesting, but having a Strengths Coach support you in turning those Strengths into action is a life-changing experience and the reason I became a coach.
If you are ready to transform your life or your organization, I’d love to speak with you.
