Strengths Coaching

Coaching is imperative for those who have a desire to learn about themselves and grow as leaders. Coaching with a focus on strengths can identify what your leaders naturally do best, pinpoint key opportunities to leverage the talents of their team(s), and set initiatives around high engagement, performance, and communication.

“Eye opening, energizing, knowledgeable, insightful – these are just a few of the words staff have offered when I ask them about the training and coaching sessions we held with Jolene and team! Through their expertise in the Clifton StrengthsFinder, our sessions are tailored to the needs of our organization, and more specifically to our staff members’ strengths. Our sessions have led to improved relations across the organization and have guided challenging relationships to a more constructive place. Their warm and effervescent delivery style gives the feeling of a productive as opposed to a training session. I highly recommend Now2next consulting for any organization that wants to be the best they can be.”

“Jolene and her team were an integral part of developing the first strategic plan for York County Government. Embarking on this journey not only required they recognize the breadth and scope of  the services county government, but also the importance of embracing York County’s history.  They were able to help us drill down to the essential components important in all departments. The Strategic Anchors provided guideposts for our implementation actions. The plan is succinct, easy to  understand, and provides direction to County government that can be shared inward with staff as well as outward with the community.”
