How to Choose the Best Coaching Tools for Teams and Individuals

Cascade Connection news

In this issue we share two powerful resources to help you select which Cascade reports to use for different coaching situations.

One guide is designed for Team Coaching scenarios, including working with Leaders and Managers. The other focuses on the best tools to use in Individual Coaching conversations.

We also feature Strengths legend Murray Guest interviewing Richard Sterry, the creator of Cascade, about how his Strengths helped him through lockdown.




Team Coaching Guide

Team Strengths Coaching tools

In team coaching, the key challenge is to not only understand what makes a good team but be able to apply that understanding to each team, helping it to become the best version of itself. That also means knowing the right coaching resource for each situation you encounter.

We’ve designed the Team Coaching Guide as a practical tool to help you quickly decide which Cascade report is the best fit for your conversation.

The guide explains why and how the Cascade resources will help you enhance the CliftonStrengths® results for the team in your workshop. There are five main subject areas, each with several sub-topics to help you quickly find what you need.

Designed specifically for 1:1 sessions, the Individual Coaching Guide features six main areas with several topics under each one. For every topic, we explore different situations and explain which Cascade reports will be most helpful, and why.
