About the Course

What is the Gallup Global Strengths Coach course?

Return on Investment

Why? Because it works.

This course has a backbone: the CliftonStrengths approach to talent discovery and developmentCliftonStrengths talent discovery and development. CliftonStrengths flows through nearly every element the Gallup Global Strengths Coach course, and you'll learn to practice and perfect it in the real world. Why? Because it works.

Gallup's most recent meta-analysis -- a study of many studies -- analyzed 1.2 million individuals and 49,495 work units in 45 countries to understand specifically how our approach affects outcomes.

Here's what we found.

Teams that received strengths-based development have achieved:

19%

29%
increased profits

59%
fewer safety incidents

72%

In The Workplace

Your workplace issues, taken care of.

People are the heart of your workplace. Understand them, and you'll know how to solve your workplace problems, seize opportunities and outperform your competitors. The Gallup Global Strengths Coach course is the answer to some of the most important workplace questions and issues.

Engage them at work. It's not the only answer, but it's one of the best.

Gallup's most recent meta-analysis -- a study of many studies -- on team engagement and performance includes data accumulated over the past two decades.

When Gallup analyzed the differences in performance between engaged and actively disengaged business/work units, those scoring in the top quartile on employee engagement significantly outperformed those in the bottom quartile on these crucial performance outcomes:

17%
higher productivity
20%
higher sales
21%
higher profitability

Meet employees' needs as people first. Now is a good time to ask, "What DO human beings need?"

We have you covered. The Gallup Global Strengths Coach course gives you many ready-to-use tools to immediately understand your people's needs to give them what they want.

The tools and methods in this course address some of the most important human needs in the workplace. Here are a few needs you'll be prepared to meet after you take the course:

  1. 1People need a manager who understands and coaches them. The manager is the strongest factor in employees' engagement.

  2. 2People need the opportunity for development. The inability to grow at work is the No. 1 reason people leave their jobs.

  3. 3People need to know what they're good at. When employees know and use their strengths, they are more engaged -- nearly six times more -- and they perform better.

By attending the Gallup Global Strengths Coach course, you'll learn how to fulfill these basic human needs. You'll learn to meet your people where they are and coach them to where they could be.

The best managers do three things well: 1) develop strengths, 2) focus on engagement and 3) maximize performance.

  1. 1They understand and appreciate their employees' talents and strengths and use this information to uniquely set up each person for success.

  2. 2They emphasize their team's engagement to ensure that workplace needs are met.

  3. 3They set clear expectations and performance goals, provide strengths-based feedback, and make adjustments to help their team take action.

The Gallup Global Strengths Coach course teaches you the fundamentals of reshaping how you manage people.

Great workplaces develop good managers into remarkable coaches. Gallup knows more about managers than anyone else in the world. Through decades of research, we have learned that managers account for 70% of the variance in team engagement at work.

Great workplaces recognize that managers are the primary lever of change in any organization. From modeling the organization's purpose and values to coaching individual performance, managers bring the organization's culture to life and, ultimately, define how employees perceive the organization. So, if your managers don't change, nothing changes.

People come to the Gallup Global Strengths Coach course as managers. They leave as coaches.
