Mike Pegg

Mike has spent the past 45 years helping people to build on their strengths and achieve their picture of success.

His many books include The Art of Strengths Coaching, The Strengths Way, The Art of Mentoring and Strengths Coaching In 90 Minutes, the latter co-authored with Sue Moore. He also founded The Strengths Foundation. This aims to share the strengths way of enabling people, teams and organisations to achieve ongoing success.

Mike’s early work was captured in the 1972 BBC documentary Escape To Fulfilment. This described the pioneering therapeutic community he ran for young people. Some old footage still remains on YouTube that can be viewed here.

In 1974 Mike set-up his own company dedicated to helping people to build on their strengths and achieve ongoing success. His approach has always been to study, simplify and share what works. This has led to providing practical tools that people have used to build super teams and superb organisations.

These have been adopted by organisations to build excellence cultures, rather than excuse cultures. They have delivered a clear story, strategy and road to success. Mike’s style is encouraging and generous, but it is also extremely clear. He only works with people, teams and organisations that aim to be positive, professional and peak performers.

Many organisations report that this approach works. People take away practical tools they can use to deliver peak performance. A strong advocate of sharing knowledge, Mike set up The Strengths Foundation. He also created The Positive Spirit website. This highlights many positive things that people are doing in the world.
