“My experience with Todd’s StrengthsFinder consultation has been absolutely remarkable. I had taken StrengthsFinder in the past through student leadership training at Gustavus Adolphus College and learned what my top 5 strengths meant but did not dig deep in terms of how they each played out in my life. During the consultation, Todd used a “conversational” approach which made it feel more genuine and natural rather than spoon feeding me information.

He was able to smoothly connect my thoughts to my strengths by listening to how I answered questions based on what I had thought were broad questions. Todd was able to clearly articulate in what ways certain strengths of mine played out in my life and how each one would interact with each other. After the consultation, I was able to recognize and understand why I excelled at certain aspects of my life and reconfirm that the passions that I have are influenced by my strengths rather than luck or randomness.”

“Todd and I work for the same organization on different teams and we engaged him in working with our team on the StrengthFinders program. We did the individual assessments and then had him come in and work with us on the StrengthFinders 101. The individual assessments enabled each of us to deepen our self-awareness around our most prominent strengths. After that Todd spent a half day working with the whole team on identifying where we all fell within the four quadrants and how that might play out in our collaborative work spaces. He was masterful at meeting us at our understanding levels, suggesting how we could lean into working together with a fresh approach, and creating a space for us to take it to a deeper more meaningful session for ourselves as co-workers and personally.

To this day we often refer back to “oh there is my Includer showing up, or my Strategic approach to things”. It has been a great experience for our teams at work and I can clearly see how deepening people self awareness spills over to their personal life as well. I highly recommend not only Todd’s expertise around this program, but his personal style is both professional and compassionate”

“At it’s foundation, the StrengthsFinders is a great tool for self discovery, but it was through Todd’s coaching that he encouraged me to understand my Strengths from a whole new perspective. His personalized and experienced approach made the process fun, professional, easy to follow and action-oriented! I would highly recommend partnering with Todd; he genuinely cares about your journey and believes in helping you bring out your best.”

“When I sat down with Todd to discuss my strengths, I could continue in my career as an individual contributor or express interest in the management track. I found it helpful when Todd mentioned that our strengths are not prescriptive to a role. I can use my strengths to actively mentor others on my team and coaching resources on best practices. I appreciated the informal, yet professional approach that Todd took in our consultation. If you want to go beyond the surface level regarding your strengths, then I strongly suggest scheduling a consult with Todd.”

“Todd has been a genuine help to me. He really took the time to get to know me beyond my academic and professional life. I greatly benefited from the time that he gave to sit down with me and truly hash out how I could form my own path in life. He has a gift to honestly understand people, and he wants to see success with the people that he works with.”

“Todd recently worked with me as a StrengthsFinder’s consultant. Because of his counsel, individualized approach to my particular Strengths and the dedication he put into his knowledge on Strengths, I walked away from our conversation with not only clarity on knowledge about my Strengths, but also a better understanding on what will make me a successful overall person in the future.

“Taking the StrengthFinder taught me how to be in control of where I can excel in my personal life and professional life.

“My experience with StrengthsFinder was invaluable. Knowing my strengths helped me understand what motivates me and helped me know where I do best. Additionally, it aided in my understanding of why I operate the way I do, and how I can augment the skills I have. Coupled with this, I have a better knowledge of how I can participate in a team. I have found that this interplay of individual characteristics and strengths is essential to the successful operation of any team, work environment or graduate school environment. By understanding ourselves and the strengths of those around us, we can figure out what we need to bring to the table ourselves and where we can let the skills of others shine.  (more…)



Lead Program Facilitator

“I have known Todd for years and he is a wonderfully articulate and challenging mentor. I have been immersed in the world of StrengthFinders for years having over 10 opportunities to take the test for various jobs, groups, and other organizations. I had been through 15+ Strengths trainings to help me understand how my strengths worked together. Last fall, Todd provided a StrengthsFinders consultation for me and it greatly surpassed all the previous trainings. Todd provided a deep dive in the world of strengths and understood that I had a solid base and provided me valuable tools to think about my various strengths in a new way. (more…)
