Coach Brendan Suhr believes that one should coach each player or team member differently based on his or her strengths, not your own. In order to determine each person’s unique strengths, Coach uses StrengthsFinder to effectively uncover their talents and allow them to do what they do best, every day. People who are allowed to do what they do best every day by using their strengths are six times more likely to be engaged in their jobs than others, and three times as likely to report having an excellent quality of life.

Brendan is the ONLY PROFESSIONAL COACH IN THE WORLD certified through Gallup’s StrengthsFinder as a Master Strengths Coach. He will use his expertise during keynotes, executive coaching sessions as well as half or full day workshops with your team. His top Strengths are: Maximizer, Individualization, Arranger, Strategic, Positivity, Relator, Woo, Achiever, Communication and Learner. The combination of his strengths gives him the unique ability to evaluate your talent, develop a game plan and coach your team’s leaders and team members to reach their highest potential.
