Strengths Coaching

"Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you
did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming."


The Program

We are all unique and possess very particular sets of talents, or strengths. When we use our strengths often—in our studies, work, and daily life—we tend to find more fulfillment, success and happiness. Unfortunately, many people live much of their lives without using their strengths, or even being aware of them.

The Stephen R. Covey Leadership Center has created a strengths coaching process to help you uncover and apply your personal strengths. This high impact process will help you become more self-aware, develop your strengths, and find ways to live a more meaningful life. 

Brief overview of the strengths coaching process:

  1. The Reflected Best Self Exercise (RBSE)The Reflected Best Self Exercise gives you the opportunity to solicit input from those around you concerning who you are when you’re at your best.
  2. Coaching Session 1: Strengths Reflection – You will gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of your strengths through reflection with your coach. 
  3. Coaching Session 2: Strengths Application – You will look at each of your strength themes with your coach and plan how to apply them in your most important relationships and challenges at school, home, and work.
  4. Coaching Session 3: Follow Up – After two weeks of strengths application you will meet with your coach to follow up on your progress.
