Amid global economic stagnation, a new class of entrepreneurs, or - more broadly - of "builders," could potentially emerge to create jobs and revive economies. The term "builder" encompasses a variety of people who are engaged in the process of building something that creates economic energy where none existed before. For example, builders use their talents to create new products, services, opportunities and - more importantly - jobs.

Gallup has discovered the rare talents that the most successful builders possess. Based on a study of more than 4,000 builders, Gallup identified 10 talents that business builders use to start and grow ventures with economic value. From this research came the Builder Profile 10 (BP10) assessment. It is designed to help people discover and develop their venture-building talents.

The Coaching Builder Talents course provides coaches with what they need to support current and future builders in understanding their talents. They can use this knowledge to develop and direct their builder talents to achieve greater effectiveness and success.

During this course, you will learn to:

  • describe the value of the BP10 assessment as an effective measurement of the 10 talents needed to meet the demands of building businesses
  • compare and contrast the CliftonStrengths assessment and the BP10 assessment
  • deliver effective coaching conversations to help individuals understand, develop and apply their builder talents to increase business success
  • assist small groups in learning to discover, develop and direct their builder talents through the Discover Your Builder Talents workshop
  • support the development of builders in your community
