[Recap] From the Locker Room to the Conference Room

On a recent Called to Coach, we spoke with Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach, Maureen Electa Monte. 





Maureen Electa Monte was first introduced to strengths in a leadership class in 2006. She immediately started using strengths with her own grad students, with a focus on teams. She recently authored the book “Destination Unstoppable”, which discusses a model for leading, accelerating and fully harnessing the talent on a team. She is able to ignite the chemistry on teams by helping them understand their own and each teammate’s CliftonStrengths. Providing a renewed energy and optimism. 

Maureen’s primary work has been with sports teams, but she also works with business teams. The difference, she says, is the mindset of the coach and business leader. A coach knows he needs to invest in his players to win. A business leader doesn’t always see it from that perspective. With a business leader she has to first help them understand why developing their team is a worthy investment for them.
