[Recap] Called to Coach: India Edition – Pradeep Dutt
On a recent Called to Coach: India Edition, we spoke with Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach Pradeep Dutt.
For nearly a decade, Pradeep has been a coach using a variety of tools to help others succeed. But it wasn’t until about a year ago that he dove head-first into coaching others on their strengths. He said when he first discovered his top five strengths, it was life changing for him, and he wanted to help others experience the same realization. This was his call to coach.
Pradeep talked about the way the Clifton StrengthsFinder has changed lives. He said aside from making his life easier, he has seen immediate change in those he has coached. His coaching sessions often get off to a positive start, then wind through a river of emotions as individuals make the powerful connection of how their newly discovered strengths have been present throughout their entire lives.
When coaching groups, Pradeep uses practical stories to facilitate conversations among group members. He noticed that by simply initiating their conversations, these individuals began in-depth discussions with each other. He said it was incredible to see how much they learned about themselves just by talking with one another and finding out what others see in them.
