The Future is Now 

Where Strengths & Interdependence are mutually inclusive

Our Story

The Journey

A DDO Organisation. WITH Global Strengths Change Institute began to germinate some years ago with an idea to bring together Coaches from all over the world who could come together in unity to bring their Strengths in service of others. It was founded in 2019 by Sam McDonald and has continued to grow through a collaborative approach in order to support and foster a sense of Interdependence,  uniting people through each person's unique Strengths, and in doing so restore faith in our Humanity.   We recognise change is on-going, and use a systemic approach to identify the most efficient means to generate consistent, optimum results in all environments. We believe sustainable change comes from recognising our inter-connectedness. WITH Global Strengths Change Institute seeks to build strong relationships and effect positive on-going  participative change change within Corporates, SME's, Families, Communities and educational institutions. We're looking forward to growing the best version of all people. In 2018 another seed began to grow pioneering Strengths based Recruitment, which is all about placing the right people in roles and environments that suit how they are 'intrinsically' motivated and building on this. The satisfaction is in knowing someone loves their work and the interconnections

Our 'Sponsor Programme' grew out of the recognition that in order for many people to grow their Strengths and put their piece of the puzzle into this beautiful world of ours, they may need to connect with others who can help them grow. This could be in giving your time, as a Mentor, or in financially sponsoring and walking a journey with them to build their success. You can read more about our programme here.

Hear from Our Clients

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.
