- Season 4, Episode 34
- Learn how a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach takes Q12 and then CliftonStrengths to dispersed teams, to bring clarity and effective coaching to team roles and processes.
On a recent Called to Coach: Australia Edition we spoke with Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach Deon Rademeyer. Deon's coaching focus is on using a strengths-based approach to improve team collaboration and development.
Deon has worked in the field of technology and project management for most of his career. A few years back he left his corporate life to focus on his passion for people and coaching with CliftonStrengths, primarily working with groups and teams. After attending the 2016 CliftonStrengths Summit, Deon's strengths coaching took on a new shape. He realized lots of people were coaching teams, and he was asked if there was more of a niche where he saw a need. When he reflected on his time coaching teams, he realized dispersed teams could really use strengths to be more successful. He was so pleased with the CliftonStrengths Summit that he booked and paid for the 2017 Summit as soon as the invite came out!
Deon knows how important understanding people is in order to achieve better processes. With teams, Deon uses Gallup's Q12 as the baseline, then introduces CliftonStrengths. This helps him understand how people on the team operate, and knowing the "how" of performance helps teams answer the question of "who" to use for processes.
