Bryant

  • Coaching has been an integral part of my own development
  • I always asked my own coached - How can I bring my true self to the workplace?
  • StrengthsFinder has help me do this
  • I see all of my Top 5 working together especially when I travel
  • My secret sauce is Communication
  • As a coach I can now help individuals the way I’ve been helping businesses
  • SF gave me a new language and I want to bring it to millennials
  • Have you heard of Quarter-life crisis – it’s a challenge that millennials are facing, what do they want to do with their life after school?
  • We are in an age where information is much easier to get, you can get answers immediately, but are these answers solutions?
  • I faced my QLC recently; what is the next step for me - continue as a consultant or get a new job or start my own company or go to grad school? I went to grad school
  • My business school experience gave me the opportunity to learn more about myself
  • My call to action is to convert what I’ve learned in the consulting world into coaching
  • I am a millennial and identify closely with them; I want to dig into the science about millennials
  • Gallup’s report on millennials gave me a lot of insight
  • 87% rate that professional development/career growth opportunities as important to their job
  • There is the image that they “hop around” - this isn’t really from lack of commitment but from wanting to learn more
  • 55% are not engaged at work
  • I want to coach not just millennials but people who work with millennials so they can understand each other better
  • Reframe the way millennials look at work; they want a coach to guide them; but they want to do their own thing; they want to be held accountable more frequently and focus on strengths rather than improvement areas/weaknesses
  • How can strengths-based development be geared and framed for millennials?
  • I do it in 3 ways: use trends from Gallup; strengths innovation; and our own strengths as coaches and how to integrate them.
