About us

Our history

CliftonStrengths first, at the heart of all of the programs:  Established in 2016 by Gallup-certified coach Antoine Carrière, the Strengths Performance Centre helps people discover and use their talents using the CliftonStrengths (formerly known as StrengthsFinder) assessment. The aim is to help everyone achieve excellence and to focus on was is most natural to them so that they can be satisfied at work, attaining their desired meaning and impact.

2018 trained in the Gallup methodology: Antoine was part of a small cohort of certified coaches who participated in a train-the-trainer program which allowed him to understand and integrate Gallup's course delivery approach and methodology.

Fun Fact: Antoine remains one of the few (independent external to Gallup) coaches to have received this training.  

2019 launches the correct terminology in French: We are proud to have been able to support the final review of Gallup's release of coaching tools and activities in French. Antoine is used to operating in a minority language situation (in his case, French in a predominantly English community) and understands the importance of having tools in one's language. This new terminology and tools were quickly adopted by our center, becoming the first external center to deliver CliftonStrengths in French using the Gallup-approved terminology.

2019 also launched  our global strengths outreach: Globally, for strengths-based development, the center works only with certified, qualified and competent coaches who are also strong champions of CliftonStrengths, offering programs to help clients integrate the strengths approach into their current approaches. The predominant global outreach has remained West Africa, French-speaking Africa and the Caribbean. 

In 2024, the centre broadened its scope: The center is still founded on strengths-based development, but have moved beyond to merge all of the divisions of GABCM Inc. into this single entity - most of the divisions are now programs of SPC. 

How we help our clients

We are building a center that offers programs for individuals, leaders and teams to increase their happiness, performance and engagement at work. 

TEAMS

Teams are looking for ways to be able to work better together, in a way that allows everybody to be at their best. Teams want to be part of something that is productive, performing and impactful all while giving them energy, engagement, and fulfillment. Teams are looking for ways to better talk and communicate with their colleagues to increase understanding and decrease tension, misunderstanding and conflict. 

MANAGERS & LEADERS

Leaders of people are looking for opportunities to understand the people who report to them, to better communicate with them and to better support them. Successful managers are continuously exploring means to allow for individuality, to help their team be happier in their work environment, and ultimately, have a performing team that is more engaged. 

INDIVIDUALS

Individuals are looking for an opportunity to bring their best selves to what they're doing. They want to be able to have that impact, to that the work they are doing actually has meaning. Individuals no longer want to just go through the motions, but want satisfaction in their work ‚Äď some would even say love their work.¬†¬†

 

This is what the center provides: a pathway and tools to guide people so that they can focus on executing and benefiting from their talents, strengths, their self-awareness. Our belief is that we are born to achieve excellence, and we just have to discover and choose the path that will allow us to full attain our greatest potential.
