Why Gallup Strengths Coaching?

  • Have you ever wondered about whether you’re achieving your potential?
  • How often do you use your natural talents at the moment?
  • Have you lost touch with them a little?
  • Have you got more to give?


Research from Gallup ® indicates that your greatest opportunity for all round personal improvement isn’t where you’re weakest – but rather where you’re strongest!

Gallup Strengths Coaching is a comprehensive, insightful and energising framework that helps you to understand who you are, who you’re not and how you can make your best contributions inside and outside of work. Working with Gallup Strengths, you’ll be able to:

  • Uncover your true talents and develop them into strengths
  • Use your strengths to overcome your challenges and accomplish their goals
  • Capitalise on your potential and perform at your best…by doing what you do best.

Created originally in 1998 by educational psychologist, Don Clifton PhD, together with Tom Rath and a team of scientists at Gallup®, the programme is backed by more than 40 years of research.

Strengths coaching can be a stand-alone approach or it can be woven into a broader coaching programme, depending on what you’d like to achieve. Essentially there are 3 steps:

  1. Take the online Clifton StrengthsFinder® assessment, which measures your natural patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving.
  2. Review the detail of your report, which includes personalised insights on how your talents and strengths appear in your life – and where your potential might be for the future!
  3. Develop a personal action plan to build your unique talents into strengths…and become the best version of yourself! 

“Julia’s profound combination of seeing the uniqueness of each person and sensing their emotional state as well, makes her move towards potential growth with ease and grace. She has an exceptional way of navigating through the conversation, challenging people to create the best answers, without them even having realized it was a challenge. When Julia leverages her seeing and knowing talent, she is able to smoothly coordinate any kind of necessary change, transition or transformation. In complex situations she is able to juggle all the balls at the same time but when necessary she easily zooms in on the most important one. This makes Julia very effective coach in a dynamic environment or with dynamic personalities. While creating beautiful ‘lightbulb moments’ Julia will help you grow to your very best ability with ease and grace. Having been coached by Julia myself, I deeply recommend those who are eager to grow to reach out and work with her.”
