True leaders are social influencers that maximize the efforts of others towards the achievement of a positive goal.

An excellent leader realizes that who they are is foundational to how they lead. A leader’s greatest tool is him/herself. Once a leader has a deeper understanding of who they are, it’s essential to take that insight and apply it towards positively influencing, impacting, and serving others.

At Abbey Coaching we take a Strengths based approach to leadership development. As a Gallup Certified Strengths Company, we believe in starting from a place of Strength.

We create custom leadership development programs for individuals and organizations that empower authentic leaders. Our typical programs are divided into 6 month modules with a balance of interactive group experiences and personal one-to-one coaching.

  • Module 1  •  Foundations in Leadership
  • Module 2  •  Leadership Applied
  • Module 3  •  Leadership Legacy


Jeff Williams, President, Springthrough

Springthrough has been working with Abbey over the past year with a team of emerging leaders. All those involved in her program have learned a great deal about themselves and their peers. This has made them work better as a team and more effective overall in their role. They are very engaged in the success at Springthrough and in helping others achieve their potential. We are going to continue to work with Abbey and would recommend her services to anyone looking to increase their leadership skills.


Chris Theule-VanDam, Regional Director, Young Life

Abbey Coaching did a half day training for our regional Young Life staff that has had great results. We are leaning in to knowing and using our strengths and also growing in how we work with the others in our areas and region, based on their strengths. Abbey has my highest recommendation.


Brian Pageau, President, Midwest Energy Group

Abbey Coaching has drastically increased our team's self awareness both individually and collectively, and has empowered us to serve our clients more effectively. The ripple effect of Abbey Coaching has spread into every aspect of our organization. Abbey and her team will continue to be incorporated into the fabric of our culture moving forward.


Mel Wiggins, Project Coordinator, Freedom Acts

Abbey took our team through a very personal and practical path to finding out how our unique talents and strengths work best and align together. We felt listened to and understood. Abbey was able to draw out the best ways for us to use our strengths to build a stronger and more dynamic team. Time spent working on this has made a massive, ongoing impact in how we work together and the space we give each other to shine and flourish.


Heather Warnock, General Director, Scripture Union Northern Ireland

StrengthsFinder is a significant key to unlocking potential. I found it an incredible resource both personally in facilitating increased self awareness but also in releasing team awareness. Abbey brings both a highly professional yet accessible nature to her facilitation of this. I cannot recommend Abbey Coaching high enough.
