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 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.

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.
I have coached and mentored individuals and teams for over 25 years. I'm passionate about helping individuals develop their personal goals and working together to develop strategies for you to achieve those goals. With over 25 years of management experience I strive to help individuals become trusted and empowered leaders of others. Being a manager or team leader makes such a dramatic impact on individual contributors. You have the power to make people's jobs enjoyable or miserable. I love to work with new and seasoned managers helping them to develop positive and successful teams. I offer multiple workshops from Leadership Development to Sales Development all based on Clifton Strengths. My workshops are customized for each organization based on their employee development needs. As a Certified Project Management Professional, I work with project managers to develop and strengthen their teams using Clifton Strengths. Successful projects are based on strong teams and Clifton Strengths is a perfect foundation for new and existing teams to appreciate team members individual strengths and to build and become successful teams. For individual coaching, we start with a 50 minute complementary introduction session after you have completed the Clifton Strengths assessment. We talk about ways we can work together to help you understand and develop your unique talents. For individuals trying to find the right career or individuals who are transitioning from a career to a purposeful retirement, I can help using Clifton Strengths to discover your next direction in life. I offer special programs for non-profit organizations providing workshops for your staff, volunteer board or key volunteers. I offer in person and virtual coaching programs and workshops.

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 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.

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.

I’m a speaker strategist and keynote coach committed to developing elite speakers who stand out in their industry as the "go-to experts" for major conferences and global events. I’ve worked as an executive coach, professional speaker and event organizer for over 25 years. As a corporate consultant, I’ve led over 2,750 professional development programs in public speaking, leadership and train-the-trainer to over 85,000 leaders and their high-performing employees at some of the world’s top companies (Panasonic, LinkedIn, Salesforce, Google, Twitter, Square, Art.com, Lyft).

Some of my other experiences include teaching Networking and Business Development at Stanford Law School; and Communication, Management, and Global Effectiveness courses at California State University, Long Beach. I started my career working as an international recruiter and a Business Communication teacher and coach.
My career began over 30 years ago with Hewlett-Packard, followed by stints with Nabisco, The Covey Leadership Center, Iomega and The Sales Performance Group. Determined to achieve higher results, I launched my own consulting practice in 2002. From the outset, my passion has been helping people and organizations achieve significant results. At the heart of al my work is the principle of continuous improvement.
For many years I was heavily involved in training and leadership development. I taught thousands of business professionals the key principles and tools of personal and organizational effectiveness. It didn’t take long, however, to see that the anticipated changes weren’t happening. Learning powerful principles in a classroom setting rarely translated to noticeable changes on the job. However, good training on it’s own was not enough. Something important was missing.
In recent years, I’ve added professional coaching into all my work. The results have been nothing short of phenomenal. One thing has become crystal clear. Powerful insights can be gained in large group settings but application is best done one-on-one. Professional Coaching is a catalyst for applying proven principles and powerful insights in each person’s unique situation. Without question, coaching is the most powerful change process I’ve ever utilized.

To master my strengths and contribute my highest and best, I pursued my MBA, along with certifications as a Six Sigma Black Belt, Manager of Quality and Organizational Excellence, and Open Book Leadership. I also served as a state-level Baldrige Examiner for performance excellence.
I am privileged to be nominated and awarded the Small Business Administration's 2018 Women In Business Champion for the State of Oklahoma for my mentoring and coaching work with women business owners.
Are you worried about making the numbers or that your company isn't changing fast enough? Are you worried about who the next disruptor or competitor entering your market is? Do you have an upcoming presentation in which you have to present a convincing vision and respective strategy of how to make success happen? Have you just started a new role and want to get 'runs on the board'? Is your team 'challening' and not delivering on its set targets? Is your next career move concerning you? Do you have difficulties with your manager, a peer or a staff member? Those are the precisely the problem areas my previous coaching clients have asked for help with - and which we solved successfully together.
My coaching approach is based on tried and tested models, which we together modify and apply as required. I firmly believe in having fun while growing, learning, developing and achieving! My guiding inspiration stems from the wonderful coaching clients I work with as well as from my ongoing professional development in the fields of Neuroscience, Psychology, commercial business management. I hold a Postgraduate Certificat in Organisational Coaching and Leadership (2017) and my most recent paper was at Berkely University of California: 'Mindful Awareness'.
The benefits of working with me are that 1) you and your development are always at the centre of my focus; 2) if you are genuinely committed, I guarantee that together we can help you achieve your goals; and 3) while learning often 'hurts' [remember when you learned how to roller skate?], there is plenty of enjoyment in the discovery involved too.
How much does it cost you at the moment to keep having your 'issue'? What value would you gain, if you would have that 'issue' resolved?
My professional background is in international corporate management, senior public sector roles and since about 10 years as a self-employed Coach.
It would be an honour and pleasure to assist you to reach the goals that you want to achieve.
I'm located in New Zealand and the time difference can be a real bonus. By using Skype or Google hangout our physical locations are entirely irrelevant. If you want to learn more about me, check out my website: www.turbocoach.co.nz

I believe each person is an expert in his or her life and work. And with the right support and focus, a person can identify and use his or her natural talents, thoughts, feelings, and patterns to produce extraordinary results in life, career, and relationships.
I began my career as the owner/operator of a small business which later led me to the franchise industry where I trained, mentored, and coached multiple business owners to maximize their business profitability and leadership capabilities.
I entered the medical diagnostics field in 2007 where I continued to raise enterprise-wide, organizational effectiveness for global organizations.
Coaching, performance, engagement, individual and team development are my passions and specialties.
