Coaching What's Strong Versus What's Wrong

Purchase the Recording

Join us as we welcome strengths expert Jennifer James, who brings a corporate coaching background in many industries to her strengths-based coaching.

If you've never attended a CTL workshop, you are in for a treat! You'll walk away with practical tools you can use with clients – backed by neuroscience and sure to change your client outcomes.

Jennifer shares a holistic strengths model, tools (including and beyond the Gallup Strengths), and practical strategies to guide clients in identifying their strengths.

When you purchase this session, you get an 11-page handout full of tools they can use right away with clients plus insights on incorporating tools like Clifton Strengths and VIA into your work.

Jennifer also helps you understand the balconies and basements of strengths and teach coaching techniques to uncover causes behind basement behavior. Then, she shares how we can leverage their strengths to get clients back on track.

The tools and session include:

  • A holistic strengths model and brain-based foundation for strengths coaching
  • Coaching questions to guide people in using their strengths
  • Tools and questions to integrate strengths into everyday life (I love this as sometimes strengths can seem abstract to clients!)
  • Coaching strategies for helping people out of the "basement" related to their strengths
  • Plus a list of other tools and coaching questions (which your colleagues will add to during the session)

Set aside time to enjoy this reflective session and walk away with personal insights and a spark of energy in addition to these tools for your clients.

You'll get immediate access when you purchase the session -- including lifetime access to the recording, handout, and community of fellow career service providers.
