Why You Should Become a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach

The CliftonStrengths assessment (formerly StrengthsFinder) is just the start. The real improvement happens when people develop, not just discover, their talents.

You're the key to making that happen.

You're the type of person who the best teams and organizations rely on for leading employees to accomplish great things.

You might go by a different title in your role, but that doesn't really matter. Deep down, you're a coach.

Gallup-Certified Strengths Coaches help people accomplish great things by doing what they naturally do best.

As a certified coach, you'll learn how to lead the right conversations, ones focused on helping people achieve their purpose using their CliftonStrengths.

In the end, you'll learn to lead people to live their best lives, at work and everywhere else.

If that's your purpose, your calling, then it's time to become a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach.

Our community of coaches includes professionals from:

  • human resources
  • organizational development
  • learning and development
  • education
  • counseling
  • independent coaching
"It's the best investment that someone could make. If I could do it again, I would have skipped all of the other certifications I have and just do Gallup's."
-Nicole Seichter, Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach
