The Maximizer® ParentMaximizer, Parenting, Strengths

“You easily recognize the true potential of each family member and support them to be their best. Remember to allow them to develop at their pace. While you can see their potential, they may need time and reassurance to see it themselves.”

Are you a MAXIMIZER?


  • Your dedication to excellence
  • Preferring quality over quantity
  • Your focus on strengths
  • Your motivational manner


  • Am I being a perfectionist?
  • Is the outcome realistic?
  • Are my expectations too high?
  • Am I mirroring excellence or only demanding it?

You easily recognize each family member’s potential and you are there to support them as they develop their unique strengths. Mirror this for them until they recognize it for themselves. Remember, this needs to be done at their pace, and not yours. They may have more difficulty seeing what you see. You also show your children how to work smarter, not harder. You help them explore the use of time, energy or costs to achieve what they want. This ensures a valuable return on that investment. You lean toward excellence. You have a deep desire to see your child develop to the best of their ability. For both reasons, you are a natural coach for your children, guiding them each step of the way.
