Gallup Strengths Coach

Gallup-Certified Strengths Coaches epitomize strengths-based coaching excellence. Gallup’s strengths coaching leaders have developed a certification program that ensures coaches will be fully qualified to provide strengths-based coaching to anyone, including individuals, teams, and managers.


Strong Certified

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® instrument is administered by trained professionals all over the world and is the most widely used personality assessment of its kind. It is based on well-researched and validated work related to personality theory and has proven applications in a variety of fields.
