Testimonials

VitalStrengths’ Why?

We help leaders and coaches consistently and confidently succeed because they and their people (at work and home) are worthy of it. 

This is meaningful work to us because we’ve experienced the lonely feelings of isolation of being entrepreneurs, leaders, and team members: the heartaches, overwhelm, and disappointments. We also know the resilience, joy, and meaningful victories that flow from going deeper, gaining clarity, and living out of strengths in healthy work-centered partnerships.

The scope of our leadership and training experiences moves us to lean in, understand and establish trust. It is our joy to support coaches, leaders, and their people. We cultivate trusting relationships to help professionals reach as deep and far as possible to accomplish what matters to them. When leaders transform, there are ripple effects… everyone benefits.

Everyone who wants to offer the best of who they are to this world should have access to support and proven methods to succeed.

 

About VitalStrengths Training & Coaching

VitalStrengths Coaching & Training is a learning and development company committed to helping coaches, leaders, and organizations achieve meaningful results through the COSMO Framework and a strength-based approach. COSMO is a Swiss Army Knife of frameworks that has been tested in leadership and coaching circles for 25 years and has proven valuable in both business and life applications.

Our team members train coaches, leaders, and their teams to use COSMO as a mental operating system; one that is both linear and dynamic. People learn to stay connected relationally as they assess what’s happening, what matters, what’s needed, and what’s next – achieving desired results more efficiently and effectively.

Through our two flagship courses, Leading & Coaching with the COSMO Advantage™ (accredited with 40 CCEs from ICF) and Expanding Your COSMO Advantage™ (accredited with 24 CCEs from ICF), we certify coaches and leaders in our COSMO Framework™. We are building an affiliate membership to provide passive income opportunities for our certified coaches through COSMO-centric self-paced videos. We want all offerings we provide for coaches and leaders to contribute to the increase of their impact and income!

 We also offer live individual, team, and organizational training or coaching through COSMO and a strength-based approach. It would be our honor to support your meaningful success.

Honoring Your Culture & Values

You can expect our commitment to honor your culture and values. Our training and coaching philosophy holds the assumption that each person is guided by their values and beliefs. A Judeo-Christian worldview forms our company values and beliefs, the ways our leadership team shows up in relationships, and in this world to work, play, and rest. While we are transparent about our personal beliefs, we do not purposefully impose our values or standards into trainings or coaching relationships. We hold each person, ethnicity, and culture as worthy of honor.
