A mother of two young adult sons, Mary Sue is a leadership consultant and coach who works in connection with the Gallup Organization. One of the first 50 coaches in the world certified by Gallup, she shares her Strengths-based approach with leaders and leadership teams, as well as with parents and families.
“As parents, I believe one of our greatest callings is to help our children find the talents they have that the world needs, and to help them develop and share those talents with others,” Mary Sue says. “Interestingly, signs of children’s potential talents are evident from an early age. Sometimes, our children’s behaviors that we, or teachers, may find most annoying actually hold clues to our children’s greatest talents. As lifelong coaches of our children, we can help set our children on a course to use their talents productively so they can give the very best of their gifts and live lives of well-being and well doing.
