Your CliftonStrengths in the Service of Mission: A 4-Session Group Coaching Program for Women Religious in Elected Leadership


Explore your naturally occurring patterns of thought, feeling and behavior that can be productively applied in your life and leadership. Together we will delve into ways you can identify, appreciate and invest in your natural talents to refine them into strengths and put them in the service of mission.

The program will be led by Kristin Matthes, SNDdeN, a Gallup trained Strengths Coach. She will host three group coaching sessions, each including brief input about a dimension of the Gallup CliftonStrengths assessment (formerly StrengthFinders), group reflection on deepening questions, and an activity to deepen insights from the session.

In addition to the group coaching sessions, each participant will have opportunities for one-on-one CliftonStrengths coaching with Kristin after the first three sessions.

A fourth session will be devoted to reflection on the experience of the program and feedback on how it can be improved.

To participate, you will need to complete the CliftonStrengths assessment. If you have done the StrengthFinders assessment, even if many years ago, there is no need to take the assessment again (as long as you can find your StrengthFinders report!). It is ideal to have the full 34 report, but even having just your top 5 will allow you to gain depth of insight from this program. If you need to complete the CliftonStrengths assessment, you can find it here.

The suggested fee for entire program (4 group sessions and 3 individual coaching sessions) is $200. If this cost would make your participation impossible, we can suggest a cost that would work for you when you are registering.

Groups will be limited to 4 participants. When you register, you will be asked to identify days and times that work best for you. Using that feedback from each participant, we will identify the days and times for your group’s sessions.

If you have any questions you can email Kristin Matthes, SNDdeN.
