Traci is a SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP) and earned her B.B.A. in Management and Organizations from The University of Iowa and her M.S. in Counseling Psychology from The University of Kansas. A Director at one of her clients had this to say about Traci’s StrengthsFinder training programs:  

StrengthsFinder has changed the way we approach employee training and growth here. Traci did a great job of facilitating a path that has become part of our daily interactions with each other. Understanding people’s strengths and capitalizing on growing what already comes naturally to individuals is much more productive than asking people to change who they innately are. Building your team’s projects and goals using the strengths of the individuals in the collective creates an environment where employees can succeed, productivity can increase, and everyone wins!
