Introduction to Strengths

Why coach people through Strengths?

Mental health and sustainability are important to me. I've worked in toxic places that are built upon shame and negativity, which lead to burnout. Creating a positive workplace culture, where people feel valued and seen, begins with building on Strengths. As a Strengths Coach, I help people understand their strengths, clarify their values, and put both into action. I help people create environments where everyone can thrive and become their best selves.

What kinds of Strengths Coaching does MavenTree offer?

MavenTree offers Strengths coaching with individuals and teams. See our specific offerings below, and know that they are tailored to the needs of each group.

How do I know what my Strengths are?

MavenTree uses the CliftonStrengths assessment (formerly called Strengths Finder). Most teams use the Top 5, and some choose to have coaching on all 34 Strengths.

Ariana Santiago, US Alumni Engagement Lead at Generation

"Ariela is a powerhouse people-developer, and her coaching instinct is impeccable. She knows how to pique your curiosity and bring you along on this journey to a better self.  Each time we met, I felt like a better version of myself than the week before."

Katie Busch, Associate Dean of Advancement and Alumni Engagement at Emory University

"I highly recommend Ariela as a Strengths Finder facilitator. She ran a half-day program with my team that was meaningful, educational, and also fun! Ariela is professional and very knowledgeable. If you are seeking a valuable workshop to help your team better prepare for future success, contact Ariela now! You'll be glad you did."

Jessica Stephens, Events Manager at Emory University's Laney Graduate School

"I appreciate the StrengthFinder approach that focuses on maximizing strengths rather than correcting weaknesses. That perspective gave me a new lens to look at myself and my teammates. I tend to focus on the negative things about myself, things I need to "fix," and it was nice to spend some focused time thinking about my strengths and how I can capitalize on them."
