Our misunderstood executive had the strength of “Maximizer.” She naturally wanted to maximize everything we did to continue to reach new heights. Understanding this through Kristen's workshop fundamentally changed our understanding of her and actually caused several staff members to keep that in mind when building conferences, workshops and programs for our clients. It was a great breakthrough and she now has the nickname “Maximizer!” Read More...

For me as a CPA, having Futuristic as a strength doesn’t necessarily fit in with the “stereotypical” CPA, but going through Kristen’s training helped me realize I need to especially use that strength, because  bringing unique and diverse perspectives to solving issues is absolutely critical.

This is helping us optimize everything we do.  Read More...

Kristen O'Shea



O'Shea Strengths Coaching increases the performance of individuals and teams through Gallup CliftonStrengths, engagement and well-being. Owner and coach Kristen O'Shea proudly pioneered and championed the vision of Kansas State University becoming a Strengths-based campus. The journey of how she increased engagement, well-being and retention, and impacted a campus of more than 28,000 students is featured in the introduction of Gallup’s Clifton Strengths for Students book and in her Keynote at the Gallup CliftonStrengths Summit 2018 to an audience of 1500.

Is your job energizing? Is your workplace engaging? Do you get to do what you do best everyday? You spend (or waste) too much of your time, energy and talents from 8a.m. - 5p.m. to be disengaged. Nearly 2/3 of Americans are not engaged in their jobs. The biggest culprits for disengagement include: bad management, unmet workforce needs, and not using your strengths to do what you do best every day.

Through our work together, whether it is one-on-one coaching, team training, organizational development projects, or keynote speaking, you will not only identify your talents, but put them into action through the science of building habits. Applying strengths and increasing engagement will lead you to reach your desired outcomes.
