Strong Organizations

Studies show that the strongest organizations leverage the unique strengths of their people, build great teams around them, and collectively achieve goals at a much higher level than unhealthy work environments. We help create organizational cultures that expand performance and well-being by activating the character strengths of every individual.


Strong Cincinnati is an initiative designed to transform organizations across our city by activating the unique character strengths in each individual.

Organizational Consulting

Some organizations need programs tailored to their specific needs. For those times, we offer custom consulting and a laser focus on just you, your teams, and your organization.

Leadership Coaching

We tailor our coaching programs to match the unique needs and challenges faced by our clients. We offer one-on-one coaching and group engagements based on each situation.
