Where Strengths & Interdependence are mutually inclusive


"Your cross to bear is your gift to share "

Sam McDonald

Our Story

The Journey

Where Strengths and Interdependence are Mutually Inclusive

WITH on its own is just a word, the moment you add other words to it, it can become something more; a sentence perhaps or a paragraph. This is the same with people. Alone we are nothing, and yet when we intentionally choose collaboration and interdependence, we can create strong, united relationships.

“I am interdependent WITH myself, my Peers, my Colleagues, my Family, my Community"

Making use of the Clifton Strengths Assessment we work towards creating a global language of understanding using the positive constructs of 34 Gallup Strengths, and couple this with Interdependent Rules of Engagement© to teach people how to be together successfully, reducing negativity, misunderstandings and conflict. More importantly this creates a language to understand self and others where we can make informed decisions regarding the roles and environments, we are best suited, to bring our whole selves to life. 


At WITH our Programmes, together with Individual and Group Strengths Coaching, solves the problem of maximising the positive untapped potential of every individual, thereby helping people to bring their whole selves and their intrinsic value to contribute in the various environments  we find ourselves, such as learning, working, social, family; in service of self and a greater humanity.

Hear from Our Clients

Dylan Coetzee 2019 South Africa

I read a book called ‘Great Leaders ask Great Questions’ and that is what Sam McDonald does. In fact the right questions that start and spark the thinking process, because any answers we ever want, lay deep within us, and Sam knows how to lead you within yourself for that answer.

Before I met Sam, I had a perception of myself that I was ‘weird’ or too hardworking. Sam, however, could see my Strengths just by speaking to me, and besides highlighting some of them, she pointed out how working in our non-Strengths, we are effectively wasting our talents. Thereafter, I had a desire to pin-point and develop my Strengths.


I worked with Sam to unlock the potential of my Strengths, as well as gain an understanding of who I was, not by looking at my weakness, though we did spend some time here, but by understanding that I will grow exponentially by focusing on my Strengths and asking others to pick up where i’m not strong. 


The results after working with Sam was improved Leadership, Communication and a better way of seeing people for who they are based on their Strengths and working on that. I now set more goals, have improved focus, and ‘delegate’ my weaknesses. I also celebrate my successes more.


What I would have loved, if I had the resources, was to have taken one of Sam’s Coaching Packages so I had a plan to focus on and work towards. This would have helped with an implementation plan and goals to work on my situation.


Before meeting Sam everyone made me believe I wanted too much out of life and therefore, I was kind of crazy in their eyes. But unlocking the potential of my Strengths has made me realise this is how I was created by God. I am born to do great things.
