Katherine Houston


Founder, Strengths Consulting






Katherine Houston, a long-time member of TWN, became a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach in 2016 and founded Strengths Consulting to help individuals and organizations accomplish things they may not have thought possible. 

She is passionate about the importance of great leaders and managers and having the right people in the right place. Beginning her career as a CPA, she has worked with many organizations in various industries. She has been an employee, a consultant, a top-level executive, and a business owner. She understands firsthand the challenges that employees, leaders, and organizations face. 

 

Is your workplace productive?


A staggering 87% of employees worldwide are not engaged.  Many companies are experiencing a crisis of engagement and are not even aware of it. The annual cost of disengaged employees in the U.S. is $500-$700 million dollars.  It does not have to be that way!

Strengths-based development is the foundation for engagement and essential for leveraging human nature for maximum potential. Gallup’s extensive and ongoing research into what makes individuals successful boils down to: “You are at your best when you are doing what you naturally do best.”  When your employees know and use their best, their strengths, they’re more engaged, perform better, have higher well-being, are less likely to leave and boost your bottom line. When managers and leaders incorporate a strengths-based culture, engagement and performance rise further.

A focus on strengths is not only effective in the workplace but in every area of your life.  Marriages, families, sports teams, church teams all can benefit.

Katherine will share the key elements of strengths-based development and some of the research, case studies, and real-life stories that demonstrate its power.
