I Want To...

Better Understand and Support My Student’s Strengths

You want to do everything we can to support and encourage your student. Worrying about how they’re doing in college and their future prospects can sometimes be overwhelming, especially if you’re not sure what you can do to help. Sometimes you don’t understand why they make the decisions they do. Other times you just don’t know what direction to steer them toward when they come to you for help.

How Can Strengths University Help? 

We will help you learn more about your student’s unique combination of talents as well as your own. By understanding not only what you and your student do well, you can better support and reassure your student when they’re doing well and when they’re struggling. Knowing more about both of your talents and how they may sometimes clash will help you better understand why your student does the things they do - even though you might do things differently. Strengths Coaching will help you better communicate with your student and better appreciate their talents and how they operate in the world.

Once you better understand both of your talents, we can help you understand how you can better help your student succeed - whether they are preparing for college or overcoming obstacles once they’re on campus. Strengths Coaching for your student is a great way to help prepare succeed in college, but pairing that with coaching for yourself is an even better way to support them and their journey.
