For more than 20 years, I've studied Positive Psychology. I've lived it, breathed it, can't keep my mouth shut about it! Once you discover how to relate to what's RIGHT with people (instead of being fixated on what's wrong with them), it's hard to go back.
Finally, after coaching for a dozen years "under the radar," I set out to get legit. I studied transformation under Synergy Education, Inc., and Landmark Worldwide. I was certified as a Strengths Strategy Coach in 2015 and became a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach in 2016. In addition, I'm a Certified Facilitator of Law of Attraction. I've also embarked on a Neuroscience coaching certification to be completed in late 2018.
My focus over more than two decades has been maximizing human potential. And I do it by promoting and evangelizing all things strengths! I am the original StrengthsNerd and I envision a world in which every person has the opportunity to live and work and play and serve in ways that are innate and powerful in them. And most importantly, that they are valued for their contribution.
My most powerful space is in helping people cast a new vision for their business and life through a process that by-passes old neural patterns and creates new ones. I offer digital programs + coaching that helps you move away from what's not working in your life. From there, we get clear on what you really want and then hack your brain to find new possibilities and a new path. Contrast to clarity brings vision.
I'm so excited to work with you!
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.
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.

I am a Team Performance Specialist and Strengths-based Human Potential Coach to businesses, organizations, and leaders engaged in their self-development in order to elevate their potential and transition to the next version of themselves as a more effective leader.
I am connected to my why, and help others clarify and root in theirs. My goal is to evoke the potential in others. This is why I start by hacking Talents. I was drawn to the Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment when I discovered its powers to give people a roadmap to their highest self and how to have more satisfying relationships, careers, and well-being. It is all connected, it works, and it's science-based.
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 a significant journey, how do you step up to create and live with purpose?
We need access to all our "inner-tools" to live our best life. Understanding how to "hack" your biology and psychology to meet the challenge of living a productive life, fight back the effects of stress, and self-lead is key to effective leadership and the quality of the journey. This is why my program is different.
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 to equip leaders, teams, and organizations to improved relationships, results, and revenue.
I can facilitate creating company culture shifts improving engagement and retention. In the end, I specialize in how to access your "superpowers" to elevate self-leadership and create intentional results propelled by increased well-being. If an organizations (or individual's) leadership training and development program do not consider the symbiotic nature of the mind-body connection, it will have limited results. The potential will not be achieved.
My business mission statement: To provide our corporate and individual clients with the most powerful, innovative, and applicable strengths-based development program, improving ROI, relationships, and well-being to boldly influence, execute, and purposefully live.
My personal talent contribution statement (my talent's expertise): I am a catalyst powered by the vision to create and live a significant life by making a difference in people's lives. I facilitate and equip the perseverance and clarity in others, evoking their confidence, personal truth, and creativity to clearly see their opportunities, igniting the creation of a strengths=led purpose-driven life.
I am certified as: Gallup Certified Strengths Coach Strengths Strategy Inc., Certified Strengths Coach Institute for Integrative Nutrition Wellness Coach Bulletproof™ Human Potential Coach ChFC®, Chartered Financial Consultant® mBIT Certified Coach, (Multiple Brain Integration Technique)
Our training and coaching are tailored and can include: ~ Defining personal purpose and mission ~ Self-leadership and well-being to elevate performance ~ Leveraging and growing talents to strengths ~ How to influence people via strengths ~ How to empower and develop others ~ Facilitating change and decisions ~ Assume a coaching mentality to manage conflict effectively and foster authentic high-performing teams ~ A personalized health and well-being plan using bio-hacking techniques via the latest in health, nutrition, and neuroscience.

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.
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.
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!
Jonathan is a fun, quirky character who loves helping people discover their talents and applying them in a productive way to achieve their dreams. 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. At the end of the day, Jonathan helps you focus on becoming a better version of yourself!
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."
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 am a government leadership coach that focuses on positive transformation for my executive clients.
I want to empower you to live your best life. I have been fortunate to experience the power of coaching and as a John Maxwell certified coach, trainer, and speaker I help clients and organizations find their passion, improve their performance, and unlock their ultimate potential.
My goal is personal improvement. I believe human potential is limitless and everybody has the ability to improve their life. Getting a masters degree from Northwestern University I thought that I had achieved my ultimate goal. I came to understand I was an excellent researcher, a great writer, and a work in progress presenter. When I graduated I thought I had reached the peak of my performance. It turns out, I wasn't even close.
For individuals, I am able to unlock your passion in life. I value your growth and it is my only goal to see you grow and improve your results. By attending focused coaching sessions, I can help you find your purpose in life by creating a detailed, specific plan. My goal is to get you from where you are, to exactly where you want to be.
For organizations, I grow people so they can grow the organization. The only way to improve an organization is to improve it's people. I hold 6 week sessions that will bring your team together, guide them to achieve ultimate performance, and crystalize a clear vision of what their roles are on the way to powerful career engagement.
I am so excited to be your coach, speaker, and trainer and I look forward to helping you and your organization reach the pinnacle of success.
I am a certified coach who specializes in empowering women to tap into their super powers without being super human. I help women move beyond fear and perfection, explore their strengths, and create the life or career they want.
I empower women to be comfortable in their skin, create the career that lets them forward to Mondays, and become the leader/manager everyone wants to hire.
For a long time, I did what was safe and comfortable. Everything changed the day my plane suddenly dropped 20 feet in the sky. Scared out of my mind, I asked myself, "If this plane goes down, can I honestly say that I am happy with my life?" The answer was no. I wasn't pursuing my dreams or doing what I loved.
I was an unhappy attorney. The day I walked in front of a room of 75 people, I felt right at home. I’ve been speaking, coaching and facilitating ever since. That's when I realized that I had been hiding my talents: connecting people to who they are and what they love, helping individuals understand their strengths, and empowering people and teams to feel seen, heard, and understood. I provide:
-Leadership Coaching -Personal Development Coaching -Executive Coaching
Assessments I provide: Emotional Intelligence EQ-i 2.0 , DiSC, 360 assessments, and Strength Finders (now Clifton Strengths)

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.

I promise it's there!

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!
Tailored for the workplace, real-world application is easy. Results encourage people to develop the highest impact version of themselves, especially if they have access to a Gallup-certified coach who can interpret simple results with surprising depth!

After a long and successful career in the non-profit world, I chose to use my MSW training and become a certified Transition Life Coach - in order to help people looking for a partner who guides them to greater success in their own transitions. I have lived a life of many professional related transitions and have a great deal to offer my clients. I enjoy working with non-profit professionals who are suffering through a difficult personal and/or professional transition, though my clients include people from varied backgrounds and professions.
As a Transition Life Coach, I encourage clients to begin our relationship using the ELI Assessment and Debrief. This tool measures your Energetic Profile, which is your energetic frame of reference or the lens through which you experience the world in all its dimensions – spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, etc. The assessment is an indicator of how you operate during regular situations and also how you use your energy while experiencing stress.
Understanding your Energetic Profile in day to day situations in addition to knowing your reaction to stress is the first step toward reducing the level of stress in your life. The ELI ASSESSMENT allows us to begin our coaching relationship with the following important indicators:
1. Your CURRENT potential leadership ability;
2. Your CURRENT level of engagement in life; and
3. Your CURRENT level of consciousness.
