Strengths-Based Coaching

(7.5 ICF training hours)

Wouldn't it be great if coaching flowed more effortlessly? If clients discovered ways that were natural to them to move forward quickly?

Assessments like StrengthsFinder are great tools, but this course doesn't teach StrengthsFinder. This course goes beyond assessments, to equip you with techniques to coach to people's strengths.

Strengths-based coaching shows you how to coach from your personal strengths. It also teaches coaches how to overcome resistance and help coachees build and expand on experience, gifts, and qualities they already have. It makes coaching a breeze.

  • Break out of the mindset that people's problems need to be fixed and your coaching is going to do it.
  • Stop trying to motivate others, and instead tap into their own internal motivations.
  • Move coachees from "I can't" to "I could."
Knowing how to skillfully discover and utilize your own strengths and those of your clients will energize your coaching!

Course Objectives

You will discover…

  • A new way to build motivation and energy.
