CliftonStrengths 34 Training: Participants must have completed and been accredited in Top 5 CliftonStrengths Coach training prior to attending these courses.

Workshops: Depending on the content, some workshops may be open to all coaches and others to coaches with specific training levels. Check the course information for specific requirements.

Any pre-course work will be sent at least one week before the course starts. This work will need to be brought to the training.
Each component of the training is critical to the process and full participation is required to qualify as an accredited coach.
Once the course has been confirmed the Strengths Network office will send each participant an invoice for the training. Payment will confirm your place on the course.

Post Training Requirements

Participants will be expected to carry out the required number of coaching sessions, as listed below, within 12 months of the training course. Following the coaching sessions, coachees will be requested to submit their online feedback about the coaching received.

Top 5 Accreditation: TEN feedback evaluations

Partnership Accreditation: THREE feedback evaluations

Team Accreditation: THREE feedback evaluations

CliftonStrengths34 Accreditation: THREE feedback evaluations

Once the SNSP office has received all of the feedback evaluations, participants will attend (in person or via phone/Zoom etc) a final interview at a time arranged that suits them and the interviewer.

Once all of the requirements have been met successfully each participant will be awarded the qualification of Strengths Network Top 5, CliftonStrengths 34, Partnership or Team Accredited Coach and receive a completion certificate.

The Strengths Network was set up by Gallup to provide training in the South Pacific in 2008. However, Strengths Network South Pacific is an independent organisation and those who are trained by the Strengths Network are not Gallup Certified Coaches but Strengths Network Accredited Coaches.

Ongoing Support

We recommend all Accredited Coaches join the Strengths Network for ongoing support, resources and professional development. We provide workshops for coaches to continue their development and have opportunities throughout Aotearoa/NZ and Australia for coaches to meet together for networking and mentoring opportunities throughout the year.

For those belonging to the Network we also provide regular feedback opportunities via the online forms available on the Strengths Network website.

Each Strengths Network Accredited Coach will have the option of being listed on the website directory.

Course Cancellation

SNSP courses combine lecture-style instruction and group activities. Each session has a minimum number of participants required to ensure a successful learning experience. SNSP reserves the right to cancel any session that does not reach the minimum number of participants on or before the Confirmation Date listed and will notify all registered participants of the cancellation at that time. We encourage participants to plan their travel and accommodation only once the course has been confirmed as each participant is responsible for their own travel/accommodation expenses.
