Gunnar Millot of Rhinelander selected as strengths coach at Nebraska

Gunnar Millot of Rhinelander is among 58 students selected to serve as new strengths coaches for the 2018-19 school year in the Clifton Strengths Institute at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Business. Millot is a sophomore marketing major in the College of Business.

The new coaches will join 22 returning coaches to mentor more than 750 first-year business students in Professional Enhancement I: Investing in Strengths, according to a university press release.

Required for all first-year business students, the course aims to help students develop and apply their strengths to achieve individualized academic, personal and professional success using the CliftonStrengths Assessment. During the course, coaches lead team meetings of up to 10 students once a week and facilitate two one-on-one strengths coaching sessions for each team member to help them recognize and maximize their potential. They also help facilitate discussions during class.

"Starting their college career by identifying their natural talents and strengths prepares our students to be successful," said Mark Pogue, executive director of the Clifton Strengths Institute and assistant professor of practice in management. "The individualized coaching helps them apply their strengths toward their goals to help reach their potential."

Open to students from any college at Nebraska, prospective coaches complete an application and interview process. Once selected, they enroll in the Strengths Coaching, Theory and Practice Training Course, a three-credit-hour course focused on gaining functional knowledge in strengths-based development. The class helps coaches develop their unique talents to motivate and facilitate the growth and development of students they coach and lead, the release states.

"This new course allows strengths coaches to develop their talents and gain the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to be prepared when coaching their students in the fall to build lives of meaning, purpose and impact," said Samantha Kennelly, Clifton Strengths Institute assistant director.

Coaches represent five colleges at Nebraska, including 49 business students.

"We select students who have the passion and energy to positively impact the lives of others and the innate talent to easily connect and communicate with people to help guide their development," Kennelly said. "First-year students thrive when our coaches recognize their unique potential and guide them to succeed by leading with their strengths."
