We are delighted to announce that Gallup has acquired Cascade from Releasing Strengths to include in their Gallup Access platform.
This exciting development is the culmination of a long-standing partnership between Gallup and Releasing Strengths, which has grown deeper over time. Both organizations share a similar vision to enhance the coaching community and advance the strengths movement.
Cascade will carry on seeking to be the most trusted, and engaging source for innovative strengths reporting on the market. Leveraging Gallup Access data and analytics it will be able to provide even better reporting materials for delivering coaching sessions and team workshops.
Richard Sterry, Cascade creator, will continue to be integral to Cascade’s operation. Richard will work closely with the Gallup development teams to expand the resources for the coaching community. He will also remain in close contact with the coaching community providing an avenue for feedback to Gallup. Collectively, this will enhance the services offered to coaches.
Richard says: “Since its early conception, Cascade has consistently provided coaches with practical tools for delivering coaching sessions and workshops. The Cascade Community currently includes several thousand members across 70 countries worldwide. It is now time to take Cascade to the next level, and with Gallup Access, more coaches can benefit from the Cascade reports and worksheets.
I am delighted to work closely with Gallup who have been incredibly helpful to find a way forward. Our increased collaboration will benefit the coaching community and the Strengths movement.”
More information will be available through Gallup’s communication channels. A special Called To Coach podcast was recorded on Tuesday August 9th. In the meantime, here are the answers to some immediate questions.
