Blair student selected as strengths coach at UNL


LINCOLN — Kendra Loseke of Blair is one of 46 University of Nebraska-Lincoln students selected as new strengths coaches in the College of Business' Clifton Strengths Institute. Loseke is a junior agricultural leadership major.

Representing a variety of majors across the university, strengths coaches mentor about 1,000 first-year business students in Professional Enhancement I: Investing in Strengths (BSAD 111).

The required course for all first-year business students empowers them to excel using their natural talents, learned from taking the CliftonStrengths assessment. The strengths coaches provide one-on-one coaching in the eight-week course.

New coaches are required to enroll in Strengths Coaching, Theory and Practice (MNGT 451) this spring, where they learn about strengths-based development and techniques to maximize individuals' potential.
