Coaching that Connects

We train managers to build productive coaching relationships, deliver effective feedback and inspire peak performance.

When managers are great people developers, they get better engagement and performance from teams.

Our solutions give managers and coaches the tools they need to help people identify, develop and live out their strengths.

Core Strengths leadership training allows managers to build productive coaching relationships, deliver effective feedback and inspire peak performance.

Use Relationship Intelligence (RQ) to Have the Coaching Conversations that Matter

When managers need to talk about challenging topics, our coaching solutions give them the language.

It can be challenging for managers to bring up delicate topics surrounding performance or development.

You don’t want to jeopardize your relationship with the employee, but if you only talk to people about what they’re doing right, they won’t grow.

Relationship Intelligence (RQ) gives you the insight to communicate with people across a diverse spectrum of personalities and experiences.

We’re getting ready to launch an all-new coaching solution that teaches managers how to develop people more formally and effectively.

The outcome? More people in your organization will have a thorough understanding of their strengths and how to use them productively.

Managers and coaches will learn how to:

  • Lead powerful coaching conversations for development and performance
  • Deliver effective feedback
  • Be fluent in the language of the SDI 2.0 assessment
  • Keep people engaged with their strengths while working remotely

Core Strengths leadership training allows managers to build authentic relationships with their teams based on a holistic approach of their strengths and motives.

The Core Strengths Approach to Coaching

We believe in human potential, not pigeonholing people.

We don’t believe in assessing someone’s strengths and telling them which roles they would be a good fit for.

We do believe in giving people more power through a holistic understanding of their strengths and motives.

We also believe that growth happens in authentic relationships. Change isn’t about command and control, it’s about helping people find their own motivation to change.

Our strengths assessment and coaching solutions give people the freedom to make choices and achieve different results–while staying anchored to who they are at the core.

When you coach people as their manager, you show them that their place of work supports the areas where they want to grow.

Xylem used the SDI 2.0 to support manager development through better coaching conversations.

Amazon used the SDI 2.0 as part of one-on-one executive coaching to improve communication and defuse conflict.
