Discover your real strengths and weaknesses and gain personalised strategies with a strengths profile, debrief and coaching session.
Are you playing to your strengths?
Many of us feel we have to be all things to all people. Or we get stuck doing things that don’t energise us. Often we focus on using the strengths that have worked for us in the past. Or we give more attention to our weaknesses, lose motivation and don’t get very far.
I can help you be more successful by realising your natural, energising strengths and building a business or career based on what you do best.
I offer coaching packages designed for sustainable success. I don’t lock you into fixed contracts and prefer to work with you to suit your evolving needs and budget. Together we can create a partnership that best supports you.
What’s your vision?
Would you like to tap into your greatest strengths and areas of potential growth? I can help you identify and develop your strengths, design strategies to minimise your weaknesses and create a plan to become the best version of yourself.
Playing to your strengths isn’t just a good idea. It’s good science. Recent research in positive psychology and business shows why tapping into and developing your strengths is the secret to fulfilment and success.
My method and tools
Strengths Profile is a leading evidence-based strengths assessment and development tool designed to unlock the performance potential of individuals, teams and organisations. Built from a decade of theoretical and empirical research, it has been taken by 150,000+ people. It demonstrates highly valid results.
By measuring three dimensions of energy, performance and use, and differentiating strengths, weaknesses and learned behaviours, Strengths Profile gives an in-depth perspective on people’s real capabilities and growth potential. More dynamic and situational than traditional strengths tests, it is considered an important development in applied positive psychology.
I also use VIA inventory, a values-based strengths assessment. It’s available online for free.
What clients say
Sophie Francis is an amazing strength coach and consultant and in a very short space of time was able to do a fair and objective assessment of my strengths and weaknesses. Where she impressed me greatly was not only the accuracy of my own strengths and limitations – but her ability to then help me develop workable strategies for my life and business to help me achieve what I want.
Since working with Sophie I have found myself more effective, proud of my own strengths and weaknesses and much clearer on what I want in my business and life.
Sophie Francis is one of the best coaches I have ever had the pleasure of being coached by.
She has an intuitive and gentle style, yet was able to move me into the action I wanted to take. I felt an immediate connection with her and feel absolutely blessed to have experienced coaching with her.
I would absolutely recommend Sophie as a coach!
Sophie Francis is a gifted coach. She challenged and guided me to build a cohesive action plan to launch my business. Her experience in branding and writing was an added bonus as these are areas where she was able to add real value as a consultant.
A great outcome has been achieved!
Sophie’s coaching style is warm and supportive. Her natural ease creates a safe, encouraging space for exploration. Sophie has a gift for listening to her client’s meandering process, extracting the essence, and reflecting it back so you hear it with more optimism and possibility. As a result of my coaching with Sophie, I am clearer on my business niche and how to work with clients for greater effectiveness, and I have moved from resistance to excitement with regard to completing my website.
Sophie Francis has a warm and open style of coaching. She helped bring my muddled mind into focus to help with my business. During my time with Sophie a couple of external events occurred which reinforced the direction I was heading and my future goals. It was wonderful to have someone to share the lead up and successes of those events with. Working on your own can be isolating and having a coach gave me the support I needed.
Sophie is an excellent listener. She believes in and actively uses a positive psychological approach. This positive spirit gives clients a sense of confidence and hope in their own natural abilities to resolve conflicts. She is able to sum up a client’s long-winded thinking circles into well-articulated themes, providing clients with space to explore and in the silence poses powerful questions that challenge them to stretch beyond their current place. She has a very natural, flowing personality whose laughing and smiling is contagious and adds lightness to seemingly desperate situations.
Sophie is a great coach. She helped me leave my comfort zone and move forward. She has an optimistic approach that opens up new points of view.
I started coaching with Sophie with the aim of creating and launching my website. And I DID IT! I am not a “techy”, so the fact that I accomplished the website development without engaging a designer is an achievement I am proud of. Thanks Sophie for making this happen with me!
