She has witnessed the power of a Strengths-based approach and has helped organizations, individuals, managers, teams and students become the very best they can be.
Strengths-based coaching has been around for decades. First developed by Gallup scientist Don Clifton (and later renamed Clifton Strengths), this approach for development is used by more than 450 of Fortune 500 companies. But it’s not just for big companies. Maggie’s focus is Management in small to mid-size companies. Why Management? Because managers have the most difficult job in any company and their ability to develop their teams are directly related to a company’s success.
