Helping business leaders, managers, and employees improve their performance and effectiveness


A Strengths-Based Approach

High performing teams possess a combination of mutual trust and respect, clear expectations, and most importantly, talent alignment: everyone doing what they do best.

In order to create and sustain an engaged, Strengths-based culture within an organization, we utilize the research-based platform of Strengths-Based Development and Employee Engagement.  Research from Gallup indicates that:

  • People who use their strengths every day are six times more likely to be engaged on the job.  

  • Teams that focus on strengths every day have 12.5% greater productivity.

In order to facilitate Strengths-based conversations, we utilize Gallup’s Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment, an online assessment that measures a person’s natural talents within 34 themes, then identifies the Top 5 most dominant themes (areas of strength) for an individual. By revealing the ways in which each person most naturally thinks, feels, and behaves, StrengthsFinder helps individuals discover and build upon the areas in which they have the most potential to develop and succeed. 

As a former Gallup consultant, founder Erin Passons is an expert in coaching and facilitating workshops using StrengthsFinder, and has certified over 300 coaches in the Strengths-based approach.

What Clients Are Saying

“5 out of 5 across the board. Content and delivery were all personalized for the group. Workshop was very informative and useful for me. We all got so much more out of the experience face-to-face than the book alone. Erin has a real mastery of the materials and methodologies she presents. Well done!”

“The structure of the meeting was very comfortable & informative. Open dialogue was encouraged and refreshing. Answers to our questions were easy to understand and apply to real-world scenarios. We were provided with guidance on how to incorporate what we'd learned on a day-by-day basis as well. Erin had a wealth of knowledge about StrengthsFinder, its origin and how to best apply the results of the assessment. I would recommend this workshop to anyone interested in building/playing up their strengths or those who may be seeking to gain better relationships with their peers/managers. The workshop was extremely eye-opening, brought clarity and challenged our thinking :-) Thank you!”

Ideal for managers for who want to get a deeper understanding of their team's core strengths! Insightful and revealing, loved it!  Highly recommend.”
