As a Gallup-Certified® Strengths coach using the Clifton StrengthsFinder 2.0® assessment, I have coached thousands of people in using a Strengths-based approach to help enable effectiveness, increase productivity, and find their happy. I am a teacher at heart, and have spent the past 25 years educating, managing, and leading people of all ages to improve their performance through innovative professional development and strategic talent solutions. Raised in Boise Idaho, I dream of one day living in Ireland. I love to travel, outdoor adventures, live music, my three daughters, and helping others find their power within.
I recognize, appreciate, and share with listeners, that leadership is a moment-to-moment choice and not about title, tenure or position. Leadership is for everyone, every day. It's how we should live our life and I wholeheartedly believe in the phrase "Lead by example." I am passionate about inspiring people to lead at every level. I consider myself a builder of happiness in the workplace and have an unwavering belief that it is possible for everyone to love what they do. Business begins and ends with people. This truth allows me to make shifts in culture that positively affect not only the business itself, but the greater community. When teams are able to communicate with authenticity and trust, high performance is a by product. Finding what individuals are the best at and creating teams that leverage those strengths on a daily basis is what I do best. Cultivating internal leaders, partnership alignments, professional wellness, performance coaching, succession planning, and ultimately creating cultures where employees thrive is my ultimate goal.
My ability to provide coaching and strategic solutions in the areas of Strengths-based performance, leadership development, and organizational effectiveness. I have had the honor to work with such clients as: Skanska, Micron, Hewlett Packard, The Gap, Sensus Engineering, ESI Construction, ZGA Architecture, Downey Unified School District, Pomona Unified School District, Anthropologie, multiple Boards of Directors, private schools, various state departments and a variety of businesses ranging from the sole proprietor, non-profit organizations, start-ups, to fortune 500 businesses.
Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach with over 17 years’ experience using StrengthsFinder in the workplace. CEO of Every Strength Counts providing 1-1 coaching with C level execs and managers. Additionally, helping teams and emerging professionals to make the most of their careers, teams and resolve personnel issues.

My secret sauce? Yep. I have one...
1- My team strengths and expertise in different areas.
2- 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.
3- I have learned how to access my "inner-tools." As a Mindfulness practitioner and my own personal journey to enhance my health, energy, and performance, 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. I bring those tools to a robust and whole-self training program that will shift a person and a workplace environment.
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.
My business mission statement:
To provide our corporate and individual clients with an innovative, science-backed and applicable strengths-based development program improving ROI, relationships, and well-being to boldly influence, execute, and purposefully live.
Bottom line: I facilitate a more effective leader, interdependent collaborative team, and company-wide strengths-based culture shifts, including diversity and inclusion initiatives, that improve engagement, retention and a happier more productive workplace environment.

“How you see the world is how you sell to the world” It also is a HUGE factor in what kind of a referral business you are building. Would you like to earn MORE referrals? Would you like to sell BETTER and EASIER?
A. Referrals have a 70-90% closing ratio….and a 92% retention rate, generally spending 5x more than other methods of gaining business
B. Most salespeople say that referrals are their favorite way to get new business…yet most do not have a system!

LONG TERM EFFECTS OF TRAINING APPLICATION IN THE FIELD

Thrive with Strengths
When not working, you can catch me THRIVING WITH STRENGTHS as I read, travel, and dream of snowy slopes where I can ski with my husband and 3 adult kids.
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.
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 work with new and seasoned managers helping them develop positive and successful teams.
As an experienced trainer of employee and leadership development programs 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.

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."
You are a leader whether you lead an organization, a team, or your career,
and you are ready to take things to the next level.
You have talents to offer like no one else. Knowing your unique set of strengths is the first step,
and learning to use them in a focused way will empower you to achieve your dreams.
It won't be easy but you are not afraid of hard work.
There are many coaches you could choose from, stop and take a look before you decide.
