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!
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.

ITS YOUR TIME!!!
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.

Brent is described by his clients as purposeful, engaging, courageous, invigorating, & transformational in his coaching and speaking style.
Much of his work and life wisdom comes from being a business owner since 1993, being married to his college sweetheart 34+ years, launching two children into adulthood, and being a grand daddy. He’s an entrepreneur with zest, team tennis player, golfer, travel and foodie junkie with his wife, and giver to non-profits.
A recent organizational client shared, "I have never been a part of an exercise that seemed to get people more excited and willing to commit than Brent’s CliftonStrengths-StrengthsFinder Coaching program. I was quickly amazed at the things we were all learning about, not only our fellow managers, but also about ourselves. The most common expression from the group was "Ahaaaa! Now I understand.
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.
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 have a passion for developing talent, creating leaders, and bringing out the best in people. With over 15 years leadership experience, I have successfully transformed cultures, built sustainable leadership networks, and consistently delivered outstanding results.
With a background in leading production and engineering operations, site strategy, new product introduction, team leadership, performance management, and employee career development, my experience brings a real-world perspective to organizational development, executive coaching, and leadership training.
As a Gallup-Certified Strengths coach, I’ve logged over 200 hours of coaching and delivered over 1,000 hours of training to bring out the very best in people, create highly engaged teams, and achieve top-tier performance for my clients to gain a competitive advantage in their industries. By focusing on natural talent and strengths, I’ve partnered with leaders to reach that new level of performance. I've completed Advanced Clifton Strengths Training and Builder Profile 10 (BP10) training to help entrepreneurs, small business owners, and ‘intrapreneurs’ innovate and create customer energy.
Finally, with experience as a US Army Ranger, Company Commander, and Infantry Officer, I thrive in a high-stakes environment where successful performance leads to meaningful impact, and know how to coach others to perform under pressure.
My ideal clients include: 1. Leaders in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries 2. Small business owners or growing entrepreneurs 3. Veterans who are planning or going through a career transition in to Corporate America 4. People seeking coaching in major life changes or new career paths
TOGETHER WE WILL MOVE FROM THE PATH OF POSSIBILITY INTO PROBABILITY & PROFITABILITY.
Driven to create lasting, positive results for coaches and other service-based business providers. I am most deeply motivated by and inspired to work with disruptors, innovators and creative leaders to realize their potential, solidify their brand and to create a contagious message that will connect with those who need to hear it most. By using innovative strategies and cutting edge talent tools, we take the blinders off, remove the barriers standing in your way and accelerate you to your success.

The question I am most often asked is, "Why do I do what I do?" The most honest response I can give is that I wish there had been a me for me when I was starting out as an entrepreneur back in 2007. I spent a lot of money on all the wrong things thinking it would magically give me the answers – or at least get me a bit closer to success. Frankly, it was frequently the opposite. And even though I knew my CliftonStrengths, I wasn’t making the most of them or using them to their advantage.
In 2015 I had a revelation. I was 42, still no closer to knowing what I wanted to be when I grew up. Couple that with a cancer scare along and a one year old little boy and whoa! It was my wake-up call, my big A-HA! I knew I had to make a change. With a good bit of reflection and honesty (with myself most of all), I realized the one thing that had stayed constant was my love for Strengths. I picked up the phone, called Gallup and 8 weeks later was in Mexico City certifying (in Spanish!) as Peru’s first and only Gallup Certified Strengths Coach.
I dream of creating a world where everyone can live to their full potential, talents aren’t wasted and happiness is contagious. As a mompreneur and expat living in Peru, I understand the challenges and rewards that both entail. When I’m not helping others boost their confidence, craft their message and create extraordinary lives, I am often found at the sewing machine, at the movies, enjoying a glass of wine with friends or horsing around with my terribly precocious little boy, affectionately known as O.

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 just got to be real….small business development is my JAM! True Strengths is the 3rd company I have started since leaving the USAF in 1992. We started off developing our first business, a small commercial sign company in 1992 and grew it to 2 locations with clients both in and out of St. Louis. I then had an opportunity to work with what was a newer company at the time, BNI (Business Network International) and grow a region (the Central and Southern Missouri area) that had 2 developed chapters in Columbia, Missouri to chapters in Lake of the Ozarks, Springfield, Joplin, Branson, and Cape Girardeau. We grew it to the point where, in 2009, it had the second largest net growth for a BNI franchise, a number that stands to this date. We also purchased the Arkansas franchise and took it from the bottom of the US franchises to #1 in the US…twice! What was the most rewarding part of this journey? Being able to work with small business owners and see them grow and develop their business and revenue! We found that as they grew themselves as leaders, their business grew as well
We sold our portion of the franchises in September of 2018 , and launched True Strengths with a passion….and a mission
To help Entrepreneurs and small business owners answer the question “What does a best day at work look like?”
What is the answer we are seeking? Profitable…..inspiring….fulfilling….ENGAGED! A place where not only do the employees want to be there- but so do the owners!
This is what business builders and entrepreneurs are going up against in the United States:
-U.S. Economy needs 1 million successful start ups annually to remain an economic leader -40% of start ups shut down in the first 3 years -50% of start ups do not make it past 5 years -Entrepreneurship has been in slow decline for the last 30 years -The US ranks 12th among developed nations in terms of business start up activity
How do we counter these sobering stats? Designing our business to work in our STRENGTHS!
How are you wired? That is what the Clifton StrengthsFinder Assessment and Gallup Business Profile 10 (BP10) , along with our coaching, is designed to help you out with. Not only will it influence WHAT you build but HOW you build it!
The next BIG THING could be….and should be YOUR THING! What are YOU going to build?
Some of the programs that we offer:
Right Company BP10- The Right Company BP10 program uses the Gallup BP10 Builder Assessment to help companies determine what talents are brought to the workplace by each individual in the company- 10 business building talents (essential for any successful business) and 3 key roles (Rainmaker, Conductor, and Knowledge). The Right company Course is available in a classroom setting as well as at your company or organization
Clifton StrengthsFinder- People in the workplace want to be developed on what they naturally do best- A Gallup survey showed 85% agree with this statement…..Do YOU? The True Strengths program helps TEAMS and companies answer (2) very important questions: 1. How do I pinpoint what I do best? 2. How do I use my natural talents and abilities every day to be more successful?
What does the workplace HUNGER for? To be understood and appreciated for who they are and what unique contributions they bring to the team. The language of ENGAGEMENT is the language of STRENGTHS. We help companies and individuals SPEAK THE LANGUAGE! We have several company training offerings- custom fit to match your needs- give us a call to have a conversation today!
Gallup Q12- Would you like to see EXACTLY what your engagement numbers are as an organization? How does your company or organization stack up against others companies across the US in engagement? And most important, what ACTION can we take to IMPROVE ENGAGEMENT? True Strengths can help you get the survey started, and help your TEAM go to the top!
What would happen if we took our new company, and wired engagement from the BEGINNING; not when we grow and reach DISENGAGEMENT? True Strengths can help you, along with BP10 and StrengthsFinder, do just that

Upon graduating from Cornell University with a degree in mathematics, I set off on the corporate path with a career that included jobs as a corporate trainer, operations/service manager, and systems designer. Along the way I added an MBA from Hofstra University to my resume. In the early 2000s I took a much needed career hiatus to care for my parents and children and to serve my community. During this time, I did something for me - I completed an MA in Theology at the Seminary of the Immaculate Conception (did I mention "Learner" is one of my strengths?).
After my break from the paid workforce, I decided to embark on a career where I could help people feel good about themselves ("Positivity" is also a strength). I wanted to set people on the path to self-awareness and personal improvement.
I am a Certified Gallup Strengths Coach and College Admissions Coach. I lead workshops and work one-on-one with individuals from high school through retirement helping them identify and leverage their strengths in their personal and professional lives. I also lead workshops and work with businesses and non-profits to build employee/volunteer engagement and increase job satisfaction and productivity.
With over forty years work experience I can say emphatically that knowing my innate talents and strengths has made the biggest impact on my life and is now my calling, both in business and personally. Knowing the how and why of my beliefs, actions, my talents and strengths has empowered me, even at this stage of life. It's never too late to gain insight and elevate one's recognition of self. With twenty-five years experience in design, real estate, sales and marketing, and twenty years in hospitality, I enjoy doing what I do best on a daily basis and I encourage others to do the same. Fifteen+ years working with Ritz-Carlton Gold Standards and my coaching experience with colleagues, clients and friends new and old, I preach life and employee engagement . It leads to customer engagement, working with a purpose and increased revenue. All of my real estate/ hospitality experience lends itself to exceeding the needs and expectations of clients, and customers, serving the community - and isn't this why we are here? To serve others. To transform something that is good to great, from strong to stronger, or to see a need and build a way to provide services needed. Personally I need to have fun along the way, and I lead with connecting others. In the past I've increased profits by over 115%, simply by doing what made sense - connecting, maximizing, having fun, being adaptable and empathetic. It works. And what a world this will be when families, educators, community and civic leaders, business and faith-based congregations can lead their lives from a position of knowing their unique innate talents and strengths.
Do what you love to do best every day. Imagine that. It's possible. Engage in every aspect of your life. Discover and deliberately live your strengths. Discover your talents and Live with purpose. It's my calling to assist you. Authentically. With caring and kindness.

I, too, am an entrepreneur and I am 100% focused on entrepreneurs and start-up businesses. After a 20-year career in corporate America, culminating in the role of SVP of People, I took my experience and skills plus an MBA from Northwestern University and charted my own course. I've launched a consulting practice where I provide fractional c-suite support to various early stage businesses, and co-founded two other start-ups of my own. I am passionate about helping people find their true calling and develop the action plans they need to bring that to life. Executive coaching and business coaching allows me to do that in a 1 on 1 format, public speaking provides me the forum to deliver those tools to a wider audience.

I can help you create the systems, processes and tools to execute effectively. I have the ability to see your business at a high, strategic view. Because of this, the entrepreneurs who engage me are able to scale and grow more efficiently, and stay energized along the journey. My favorite industries are Technology and Human Capital, though really anything SaaS based gets me super excited. I love these because working together, we’re able to impact the community around us in meaningful ways.
I also work with professionals who are looking to transition their career, and would be happy to discuss with you my process and methodology.

For almost three decades I've helped thousands of business owners and founders secure the content, capital, and connections they need to accelerate profitably.
I began my career as a credit analyst for one of the largest SBA lenders in the country at the time. However, in recent years, I've been coaching CEOs while growing business accelerators and incubators; more specifically helping companies to accelerate revenue growth and optimize their business models.
This passion for helping others has led to the founding of TechX - Mentored Acceleration, a cutting-edge program designed to help companies scale. So far, the TechX program has helped more than 100 companies increase combined revenues exceed $150+ million. Participants report more than $145 million in liquidity events of exits and follow-on capital infusions, with one company selling for 30X revenues. On average companies have experienced a valuation increased more than 17x. Participants strongly credit the program with helping them succeed. On a scale of 1-to-10, they rate the impact of the TechX program on their success as 8.3+.
Through the years, I've led several national commercial lending institutions, including franchise financing divisions. In 1996 I founded Commerce Capital Corporation; a venture lending company which provided funding for companies all over North America. Locally I've been actively involved in the entrepreneurial ecosystem; serving in a number of organizations and Boards including the Technology Center @ Novell, the Business Development Corporation of Provo, Utah Valley University's Business Resource Center, Provo Labs Incubator, Utah Valley Entrepreneurial Forum, UtahAngels, Utah Angels 2, Boomstartup, and founding utahTechX.com.
