Gallup Called to Coach: Keith Baldwin -- S2E16

On the latest episode of Called to Coach, we hosted Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach Keith Baldwin. Keith’s coaching philosophy focuses on employee engagement, and helping clients understand that they cannot reach their desired levels of success unless they first create an emotionally engaged workforce.

Keith’s journey to discovering his strengths began when he went through what he called a “midlife meltdown.” He was very unhappy at his job, and wanted his life to serve a greater purpose, all while making a positive impact on the lives of others. This was his call to coach.

In the early stages of his career in strengths-based development, Keith held numerous informal lunch sessions with small groups of people who were also unhappy in their careers. This eventually led him to earning a master’s degree in education, after which he began mentoring and working to create inspiring work climates.

Through his experience in working with engaged teams, Keith has found that when companies get rid of disengaged employees, it benefits both parties involved. A disengaged employee is better off in a role in which he or she can thrive, and the organization or team will no longer be weighed down by an individual who doesn’t want to be there.

To hear more about Keith and how he uses strengths to empower teams to become more engaged, watch the full video above.
