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.
Thank you for stopping by and inquiring about the possibility of us working together. I am an international executive, business and leadership coach, strategist, advisor, consultant, facilitator, and speaker committed to developing high performing leaders from fast-growing startups to Fortune 500 companies.
My passion for helping others succeed, lead, and thrive is reflected in my work with some of the most talented global leaders committed to making a difference and impact globally.
My dynamic worldview after living in six countries (Europe & the USA), speaking six languages, traveling to 47 states and over 40 countries, and working with highly diverse teams from over 100 countries allows me to generate tremendous value and results to my clients and audiences. This would be impossible without my Master of Science in Leadership and Organization from the University of Denver with a focus on Strategic Innovation & Change and Organizational Development & Training and undergraduate degrees in Business & Global Business Management and Education.
Further, I am the published author of #1 International Best Selling book, The World Messenger: From Fear To Greatness: Business, Sports & Life Lessons and Founder of Legacy Leader Institute, a premier leadership coaching platform that is highly respected by academics, athletes and business leaders worldwide. In addition, I am Forbes Contributing Writer & Coaches Council Member and board advisor for several non-profit global initiatives.

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.

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.

As Director of Global Education, she helped build and maintain Bumble and bumble University, among the "best in class" in corporate education programs, attended by top-level executives and small business owners alike.

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.

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.
My effective zones:
1. Strategic Operations Management - I am likened to a ship’s rudder, a gatekeeper, a litmus filter. I steer conversations and discussions, and regularly challenge decisions and action plans. However, this is not with intention to be a pain to disrupt or create contention. Rather, it is with the aim to harness collaborative synergy of thoughts and perspectives to arrive at the most appropriate (quality) course of action.
2. Human Entrepreneurship. It is my innate desire to identify, establish and activate a person’s intrinsic potential (a talent scout/director). It is to encourage the individual to develop his/her strengths zones and so become more effective, engaged, and productive at life. Like fire starters, an enzyme binders, I seek out the best in each person, identify their unique talent zones, bring these individuals together and fuse them into high energy teams.
3. Calibrator – Barometer – Pole Vaulter: The images are chosen to reflect my propensity to qualifying work and services from the point of quality and meeting expectations. It is a statement of my commitment to upholding the professional integrity of delivering on quality. Much like a pole-vaulter, there is always another notch higher for the reach. Likewise, there is an inner element which propels me to pursue and bring out the next best in the individual and the organisation.
Life gave me opportunities to work in diverse fields from engineering to sales and marketing; from insurance and banking to retail operation and education.
With more than 20 years of work experiences, I have identified and established that my core effective zone is in harnessing the efficiency and effectiveness of individuals and processes. The outcome of identifying, understanding and empowering personal core effective zones fuels the individual to gain greater confidence in themselves. The collaborative sum of these effective individuals will form a highly effective team.
Certified both a Gallup Strengths and a Prepare-Enrich Coach, contact Eric establish if there is an appropriate match of core competency to help you or your organisation become more effective and productive.

Through the process of my own journey, I’ve had amazing shifts in my own life and have been able to connect the pieces to who I really am and what I need in order to be my very best.
After coaching more leaders like you, it has become clear that discovering your talents and strengths is critical to take you to the next level in your business and relationships. And unlocking your potential will increase your energy and confidence and allow you to soar to new heights.

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!

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.

Lorraine is a 30-year business veteran in financial services with a Master's in Organizational Dynamics from Penn. When she launched her coaching/consulting firm, she looked back at the development she had received over the years and realized that Strengths was the only assessment that she had taken where the results were still relevant to her daily life. Her passions are coaching and advising emerging leaders--the high-performing leaders that companies want to retain--and helping people in transition regain their confidence through Strengths coaching. She also thrives on seeing teams come together, bonding over the common language of Strengths. Lorraine currently publishes a weekly blog on Strengths-based Followership and talks to groups about how to build Trust in the workplace.
One of Lorraine's clients, a business owner, gave the following testimonial:
" Lorraine McCamley has helped me better understand my Strength Themes and put a plan in place to better express these themes. I really like how Lorraine uses her past work experiences and perspectives to provide advice that comes from the 'trenches.' In a world where 'everyone' seems to be a consultant, it is refreshing to work with one who has actually been out in the work force 'taking arrows' and then calling on those experiences to bring the CliftonStrengths tools to life. Thank you Lorraine!"
In addition to her business coaching, Lorraine provides community education to teens/college students who need to understand their Strengths to get pointed in the right direction and leads Strengths workshops for various community groups.

I am obsessed with 3 things: strengths, teams and tacos.
With over 10 years of experience working with Gallup’s strengths materials and training thousands of people, I’ve built a reputation as a master at helping individuals, teams and entire organizations align their talents and strengths to achieve peak performance.
My bold and insightful coaching style helps individuals to not only maximize their strengths, but leverage the strengths of those around them. I have helped teams set aside stifling problems and generate possibilities that combine their unique strengths, achieving more than they imagined possible together. At the organizational level, I help leaders embed the strengths-based philosophy into their culture, management training and all aspects of the employee life cycle.
On a personal level, I passionately live out my strengths with my husband and three kids in our beloved state of Texas. We are five bookworms that love to travel, fish and root for the Texas Aggies.
My Top 5 Strengths
Strategic – Idea Generator. I get a thrill out of discovering people’s ambition and helping them plan to make it happen.
Input – Born Collector. I have a crazy, good memory for people and their uniqueness.
Learner – Growth Minded. I love challenges that require me to learn something new. I often read > 3 books at a time and share what I learn with others.
Belief – Purpose Driven. I have a strong desire to see others leave a legacy of value and worth – to live a life that matters.
Maximizer – Talent Obsessed. Every person has excellence in them, I love to find it.
I love to help individuals, families, and work teams connect using the Communication Cure, the CliftonStrengths assessment, and other powerful tools. I am particularly passionate about digital wellbeing, because of the key role that healthy tech habits play in our connection with others. I encourage you to connect through my coaching, retreats, social media and other communication channels.
As a coach and communicator, I draw from my many roles, including wife and mom, serial entrepreneur, home educator, and even a (no longer practicing) lawyer. I am of course drawn especially to the super mamas who long to keep their relationships close and real, while balancing all that we expect of ourselves. However, the solutions to that yearning can also engage and supercharge anyone from professional work teams, to students, to couples, to multi-generational families.
As a Soar Strengths Evangelist I help professional coaches scale their business and impact through community, masterminds. and workshops.

I am a Gallup -Certified Strengths coach whose Top 5 Themes are Connectedness, Belief, Relator, Individualization, and Futuristic. I tap into each of these Talent Themes (Strengths) to help people develop the skills they need to communicate more effectively and to lead with greater confidence.
Connectedness allows me to see the big picture, to see the ways in which we are all inextricably linked, to passionately believe that when we combine our strengths, we can do amazing things! My Belief and Futuristic themes fuel me in pursuing my life's purpose; to help others identify and leverage their strengths, to visualize the possibilities, and to get to that "sweet spot" where they focus on their passions, use their innate talents, and contribute in meaningful ways. My Individualization theme helps me focus on every person's distinct attributes and needs, with my Relator theme driving my commitment to their success.
As a Gallup-Strengths coach, I work with motivated individuals who not only want more satisfaction out of their careers, but are ready to take action; who are open to a process of continuous learning, reflection, and growth.
As an educator, I help working adults pursuing an undergraduate degree to develop, refine, and apply their behavioral leadership skills, promoting their engagement and effectiveness in the workplace. I also coach individuals embarking on Graduate and Ph.D studies, as well as junior faculty who are transitioning into a new professional role and identity.
Whatever YOUR goal; leadership coaching, self-discovery, or pursuing a degree, I am committed to support you in a process of self-discovery and powerful transformation. What's your sweet spot?
Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach
Myers-Briggs® Certified Practitioner
Coaching leaders, team members and whole organizations is a passion of mine cultivated by close to 30 years of study, practice and service. As both a graduate and faculty member of the United States Military Academy at West Point and a retired commissioned officer in the United States Army, I have a very unique perspective on leadership and development that has since been refined through my work as a campus leadership educator as well as my continuing education at the College of William and Mary and the University of Kansas. In addition, I serve as the President of the National Collegiate Boxing Association which requires significant volunteer effort in non-profit leadership and athletics.
My leadership philosophy is shaped by theory, which I have both studied and taught, and by significant experience. I believe in leveraging talent to maximize success and engagement and therefore prefer to coach using a lens provided by the Clifton StrengthsFinder Assessment. I am Gallup Certified since 2016 but coaching with Strengths for many years prior to that. In addition to a Strengths-based approach to leadership, I also formulated the Mission First, Team Always (MFTA) Leadership philosophy which seeks to balance the competing demands of orienting to results versus people. Therefore, my coaching will focus both on individual self-awareness and improvement as well as increasing organizational performance through a culture of excellence and engagement.
I am also very passionate about athlete and team leadership development. I coach a collegiate boxing team and lead a non-profit collegiate athletic governing body. In addition to that, I am a leadership coach for several intercollegiate athletic teams and use Strengths/MFTA coaching as a tool to increase athlete and team engagement and performance. Our athletes are better prepared to handle the rigors of practice and competition while also preparing them for a life beyond their sport in which they immediately step comfortably into leadership roles and make significant impacts to their new organizations.
I offer a wide variety of coaching opportunities that range from individual calls or in-person sessions to team/organizational workshops and seminars to creation of organizational leadership development strategies and keynotes. I bring to bear Strengths and Mission First Team Always approaches to development of leaders and groups.
