Caped Coaching offers an advanced leadership development experience for groups of 25-75 people that sparks participants to challenge the status quo, confront their fears, and change their world. Participants identify the issues and values they care about most (in their organizations, in their communities, and in the world), align their inner selves and outer selves, confront their fears, and emerge with a strategy for having a meaningful impact on their world.

Organizations & Colleges Chad has worked with:


Building Up Through Strengths

Each and every person possesses a unique combination of talents, knowledge, and skills that they can use in their day-to-day lives to accomplish their goals and interact with the people around them. People who use their strengths every day are six times more likely to be engaged in their work and three times more likely to say they have an excellent quality of life. The CliftonStrengths (StrengthsFinder) assessment, which has been taken by more than 20 million people worldwide, is a powerful online tool that helps individuals identify, understand, and maximize their strengths. In this highly interactive session, which requires participants to have completed the CliftonStrengths assessment, participants will describe their Top 5 Strengths, explain how they have used those Strengths to be successful in the past, identify opportunities to use their Strengths in their careers and lives, and create short- and long-term strategies to accomplish their goals.


Be Yourself & Become Your Best

What do Carol Danvers, Harry Potter, and Martin Luther King, Jr. have in common? More importantly, what do they have in common with you? We know our heroes’ stories by heart, and we can draw from those stories to make sense of our own leadership journeys, thereby creating enduring, meaningful change not only in our communities, but our own lives. By embracing who we are, including our obstacles and our opportunities, we become our best.

Foes, Fears, & Failures: Confronting the 3 F’s to Change Your World

Do you do what you do best every day? This simple question is the cornerstone to finding fulfillment in your work, one of the Five Elements of Well Being. This interactive and thought-provoking talk will not only bring out your best self, but find opportunities for recharging, rediscovering, and rethinking who you are and what you want from your work and your life.

Chad helped our team understand ourselves and each other through our strengths and how we could optimize our communication and productivity. Individually, he opened my eyes to the benefits of knowing and owning my strengths not just for the workplace but for all interactions in my life.
