Strengths Resources – Get involved

Strengths Resources

The new Strengths Resources website is a community project to promote resources for Strengths coaches. It’s designed by coaches, for coaches, and will help you find exactly what you need to enhance your coaching business.

The Strengths Resources toolkit arriving in 2023 will be a central hub of information for both new and experienced coaches. To give you an idea of what this site will offer…

  • We’ll be adding links to the best Strengths-related resources recommended by coaches, and provide information on where to get help and find exactly what you need.
  • By sharing profiles of the many Strengths communities around the globe, you’ll be able to discover and join relevant online and regional groups.
  • We’ll showcase Gallup Licensed products so you can see the range of books and merchandise available.
  • There will also be sections for you to receive help on specific coaching topics, and tips for setting up, running and expanding your coaching business.

It will not be a discussion forum, there are enough of those already, so we want to help you find the best places to ask your questions.

This is a collaborative project. So we’d love you to be involved! We’re looking for contributions from coaches to help build the collection of resources, under the following main sections:

Why get involved? Every contribution will be credited. So by letting others in the coaching community know about your groups, products or services, you’ll not only be helping other coaches but will benefit from increased engagement, audience and connection yourself.


Strengths Community

You may belong to several groups online or in person to talk about Strengths and coaching aspects. As a new coach, it can be quite difficult to find the best groups, and overwhelming to know which groups to join. So we’d like to help coaches, new and old, with this by providing a directory of Strengths groups. Each group will have its own page on the site with basic information and links to join, get in touch etc.

Do you manage a Strengths-based group that you would like us to feature on Strengths Resources?

If so, we’d love to hear from you. The best way to do this is to either contact us or better still, book a time in Richard’s calendar to have an initial conversation. We’d also suggest having a read of the criteria and summary of the information we’d like you to provide in order for us to feature your group.
