It’s time to become the best you

Mentoring enables you to develop your awareness of your natural abilities.

The DISCOVERY FEEDBACK is a unique one hour experience where you and your mentor interact by phone for the purpose of articulating the language of your natural abilities. The session is recorded and posted on your DISCOVERY webpage for you to listen over again. You will discuss with your feedback mentor your written Discovery profile, ask questions and gain powerful knowledge about how your gifts should be understood in light of the various life circumstances you face.

Many share the life changing and inspiring effect of hearing their giftedness described by another person. Completing this single mentoring session will enhance your ability to live more effectively from your natural giftedness and innate abilities.

Additional mentoring opportunities with I AM DISCOVERED provide unique and powerful next steps extending the mastery of your gifts in other life contexts and important subject matters.

These opportunities become a convenient and cost effective way to maintain continuity in your learning, with the focus being about you. There is no greater gift you can give yourself than self awareness and from that awareness the ability to live authentically throughout all the roles you are called on to play. Choosing to engage with I AM Discovered in one of these additional mentoring sessions will articulate your uniqueness in light of the roles and initiatives most important to you.

It’s all about you. If you aren’t healthy, then it is practically impossible to give to someone else. Your Feedback Mentor wants to talk to you about how you fit into the world around you. One of the most difficult dynamics to manage is determining where your sphere of influence should start and end and what it means for you to have healthy and responsible boundaries. Boundaries give you shape and define how you fit in time and space. To have form, you must have boundaries. To be successful, you must learn when and how to master yourself and withhold your gift or use your gift to make room for others to do what it is they do. This Feedback session will change the way you understand self care and influence.

What You Will Hear
Using the language of your DISCOVERY™ we will review again what makes you uniquely you and how some of those very motivations get you in trouble with the people in your life. We will look at the different ways people can mis-understand you and what you can do to help them see and hear you more effectively by the way you express and withhold yourself. We will discuss strategies on managing yourself and show you how to get the most out of what you do by learning to do it in ways that better serve you and those you live and work with.

What You Will Learn
We have discovered one of the critical ingredients often found in healthy, satisfying lives is the skill of setting boundaries. We will help you uncover ways to maximize your boundaries so you can learn to take better care of yourself. Next to self awareness, self mastery is the most vital skill you must learn.

Sometimes you have to wrestle with life. It’s not always easy. For some people they aren’t happy if they don’t have conflict going on somewhere. In fact they are naturally wired to stir things up and disrupt the routine. Day in and day out you face potential conflicts with everyone around you. From managers and colleagues to family members and friends. How could that not be the case since we are all different? From your most intimate partner to the stranger next to you in a traffic jam – sometimes it’s not a person but unmet expectations or an unrealized dream that leaves you struggling to make sense of what you should do next.

What You Will Hear
Using the language of your DISCOVERY™ your mentor will talk about situations that cause you the most conflict. All conflict begins with your perception of what is good and bad, right and wrong and within your influence and control. Fully understanding your natural tendencies that come into play will help you develop a more peaceful, harmonious approach to conflict resolution.

What You Will Learn
We understand that conflict has the potential to disconnect you from work and from the people you love. We will explore ways you can stay connected to the areas of your life that matter most even as you use your skills to solve problems. Determine with this mentoring session to see how your natural tendencies get you into trouble as well as how they can lead you through.

The tendency of nature is toward the wilderness. We love talking about you, the wonderful way you do what you do and the marvelous results you are capable of producing. We also know that you are often your own worst enemy using your natural passions at the wrong time in the wrong place and with the wrong intensity with results that are far from thrilling. This Feedback session will teach you how to sharpen your focus and get things done. Defining how your natural abilities support discipline and where they work against it is vital information if you are going to harness your drives in the service of your goals.

What You Will Hear
Using the language of your DISCOVERY your Feedback mentor will talk about what your abilities look like when you are on autopilot. We will discuss what the right places and the right times look like for you to let yourself go and when your gifts need to be disciplined along a particular expression. You will learn the kind of self-control you need to live a happy and successful life. You will understand when and how accountability from others can work for you and when self discipline is the better call.

What You Will Learn
We have discovered that personal discipline may be the most significant skill a person needs to engage in order to unleash his or her potential. If everything is important than nothing is important. Sometimes we just have to focus and eliminate to accomplish our goals. We will help you understand when and where that is true for you. We will create personal principles of discipline to redirect your passion that will act as your guide.

Some people wear them on their sleeve. Some people bury them deep inside. Some feel totally in control while others feel their emotions are like a runaway train. Your Feedback mentor wants to talk to you about how you feel. What you will learn may surprise you. Rarely do you have any concern when you experience what we call the positive feelings, happiness, love and excitement for example. When you feel the emotions of fear, anger, sadness or guilt is when you may begin to squirm a bit or block them out all together. You deserve to be the master of your emotional self and this coaching session will set you on course to do just that.

What You Will Hear
Using the language of your DISCOVERY™ your Feedback mentor will talk about what affects you. We will help you understand what situations invigorate you and which ones drive you crazy. You may not realize your very design is what drives how you see the world and defines the problems you wrestle with. We are excited about showing you ways to navigate your emotional world and take 100% responsibility for everything you think and feel.

What You Will Learn
We have discovered that your emotions are largely controlled by how successfully you are able to do what it is you have been designed to do. We will help you take control of this vital component of your life. Learning to manage your emotions may be one of the most important skills you need to acquire and there is no better place to begin understanding than with this mentoring session on Emotions.

Everyone has family. At any moment one out of six workers are pre-occupied to the point of distraction with something that is not working at home. The demands on you relationally and personally can be so intense that sometimes they make the rest of life pale in comparison. You need to take your family seriously.

What You Will Hear
Using the language of your DISCOVERY your Feedback mentor will talk with you about what family means to you. We will review the roles that you are expected to fill and explore which ones may or may not come naturally to you. We will discuss what you need from your family and how you can get it. We will help you define how your family values are best expressed.

What You Will Learn
We have discovered that more people have been disappointed by their family then in any other single area. We will talk about how you recover from past negative experiences and what you can do to build a successful future with a family that works and reflects the values you hold most dear.

Deepening Your Knowledge and getting better at what you do – a journey that lasts a lifetime. When you were younger, the growth seemed measurable and was often orchestrated by some one else, your parents, your teachers, your boss. Did anyone know you and understand how your natural abilities most impact your ability to grow and develop? Probably not. Like most, you were thrust into subjects and learning styles that were convenient to the teacher or important to someone else. Now it is your turn to understand how you best grow and develop and never again subject to a growth model that is foreign to your very essence. In this session your Feedback mentor wants to show you how to chart a path for personal growth that helps you get a little better at what you do each and every day but be crafted from a framework of how you best learn.

What You Will Hear
Using the language of your DISCOVERY we will talk about how you grow. We will look at the stages that await you in your unique life journey and show you how you can prepare to take them on. We will talk about which obstacles block your growth and how you can build pathways around them.

What You Will Learn
We have discovered that many people stop getting better at what they do as they reach the mid-point of their life. Rather than experiencing life as an opportunity they begin to see life as their enemy. We will enable you to grow by teahing you how to embrace your life as the unique and personal adventure it truly is.

Everyone learns differently. There is no one way people learn. Some people learn when there is a reason to learn such as a problem to solve or an obstacle to overcome. Others are natural learners and find themselves on the lookout for something new. In an age of information overload, with data coming at you in extraordinary amounts and at a faster and faster pace it is critical for you to know how you best decipher information. Some have struggled with learning in a traditional class room setting and have come to the conclusion that you can’t learn. Decide with this Feedback session that you will take control of your learning process.
What You Will Hear
Using the language of your DISCOVERY your mentor will celebrate with you all the ways your natural abilities support your easiest learning. You will hear how they limit your learning as well. We will look at which life and work situations give you a reason to learn as we discuss strategies to help you create the environments where you learn best.

What You Will Learn
We have discovered that one of the greatest barriers to personal growth is the inability to take advantage of your personal learning style. We know that most traditional educational systems deliver information through the style that is most comfortable and natural for the teacher and not necessarily with you in mind. Learning through modeling or doing, being taught verbally, learning when you are calm or under pressure, reading directions or intuitively just figuring it out – much will be made clear when you take advantage of unique mentoring experience.

Leadership may be the most sought-after commodity in the marketplace today. Yet in today’s culture the idea of leadership is confined to a narrow display of abilities. Of course leadership requires living in such a way that by position or personal authority others are interested in following you. Your Feedback mentor wants to break the mold of leaders being the one who has the control. Work inside this session and you will understand when and how you best lead. Everyone is a leader when they do what they do at the right time and the right place. The timely and effective expression of your gifts require self leadership and when done consistently can move any goal forward. If you have ever been confused about how you lead or how to get out of the way so others can lead this mentoring session is a must.

What You Will Hear
Using the language of Discovery we will talk about what it means for you to be a leader from your core strengths. We will look at the particular things you do and how your leadership role is best expressed.

What You Will Learn
Real leadership is the mature display of a person’s natural abilities. We will help you identify the situations where you will be looked upon to lead and talk about how you can optimize your performance. This critical Feedback mentoring session will empower you to lead from your gifts and how to lead with self-control of those same gifts, a skill that is often overlooked when developing leaders.

What is at stake when you take on the role of parenting? What are the risks and benefits? There are not many places where it becomes more important to know what you are doing than when you bring a child into the world. We want to talk about what it means for you to be a parent from the style of your core strengths. We already know that it doesn’t matter what someone tells you you need to do as a parent . What matters is what you are going to do. In this mentoring session we want to explore with you how your natural giftedness enhances your parenting and where it works against you.

What You Will Hear
Using the language of your DISCOVERY we will talk about what it means for you to be define the values and culture of your family. What values and behaviors will you choose to reinforce as a parent from the perspective of your giftedness and what might be the impact of those choices. Parenting by definition means you will be influencing your children so how do you do it in a way that honors your own natural abilities and those of your children. We will look at the particular things you do and how your parenting role is best expressed.

What You Will Learn
As we said, parenting requires the mature display of a person’s natural abilities so a context of love and safety can be assured. You will learn to identify the situations where your parenting will come naturally to you and where it might be a struggle. This critical mentoring session will increase your confidence that the home you are establishing will be a place of healthy growth.

How and why do you play? Is it part of what retools your spirit and rejuvenates your mind? Does it revitalize your emotions and re-kindle your vision or is it simply something you love? On many levels we have more leisure time than ever before but live with more anxiety and stress that our parents and grandparents. Playing is a lost art. We have become a generation who watches others play and even the competitive play generated on animated screens is a type of play that has winners and losers and high stake requirements. So what does it mean to play especially in light of your natural abilities and unique giftedness?

What You Will Hear
Using the language of your DISCOVERY™ we will identify how even your play manifests itself as a relaxed expression of what it is you do. We will look at all the ways your style of play makes you happy and what it looks like when you are hard at play. Since play heals and restores it is as important a part of your life expression as anything you do.

What You Will Learn
Your Feedback mentor is eager to help you learn your best ways to restore your heart and mind by playing. Whether you are a high risk adventure player who goes looking for a challenged to overcome or a player that wants calm, quiet and a predictable playground, we know your particular type of play is important to you and is what you seek.

Everybody is a people person. Everybody does what it is they do in relationship to others even if what they do the best they do with no one else around. Your mentor will help you define the sweet spot of your relationship style and how you work best with people. Everyone operates on a continuum from the desire for solitude on the one end and connection on the other. Understanding yourself can be invaluable information as you maneuver through the relationships from the most causal acquaintance to the most intimate relational partner. Knowing how you see and think about people is a must. Clients report the power of RELATIONSHIPS in giving them permission to stop hating themselves for the way they naturally do relationships, rather experiencing heightened insight and skill in interacting with others.

What You Will Hear

We will help you develop respect for the differences of others and show you ways to honor their personal space. When you have completed this one single feedback session you will know how to take 100% responsibility for every relationship and will be empowered with a new paradigm to create dynamic relationships that work. Finally you will know new ways to strengthen those relationships that are most important to you.

It is common to all of us. A sense that our lives lack ultimate meaning if we are not aligned with our greatest purpose. For many, that haunting sensation has led to a lifetime of frustration. Always looking around the corner, waiting for something to appear. That one opportunity which will bring significance to our lives. Where is the opportunity for you? Where does your spiritual essence most express itself? Is it in service of others? Does it require keeping score and tightly managing failure? Or does it call forth from you a willingness to change into whatever we believe the world of significant others want us to become? We easily can end up looking in all the wrong places while all along, the very purpose of your existence, the reason for being alive, the passion of your soul, has quietly been hidden away simply in what you do. But with so many voices and so many opportunities, finding the miraculous expression of your giftedness in a world where everyone else is trying to do the same our express is often intermittent at best or goes untapped altogether.

What You Will Hear
In this Feedback mentoring session using the language of your DISCOVERY™ we will talk with you about your most important dreams. We will work with you to identify where you have already tasted elements of your greatest bliss while we help you determine your next steps to greater peace. Purpose is found not only in what you believe but how you live your life and the legacy you are able to leave those who follow in your footsteps.

What You Will Learn
Within the context of your session your mentor wants you to learn to embrace a fuller definition of your spiritual expression as resonating from your unique talents and abilities. We all have core beliefs and values that become our guiding principles. You mentor will help you align those beliefs with what it is you do. If you hunger for that spiritual connectedness this is one session you will not want to miss.

The best work you ever did you did before you were ten years old. No one gave you a job description. No one gave you a time card to punch. There were no deadlines or weekly meetings. You simply got up every morning, got dressed and went to work. You just called it play. We know that you have always known what it is you love to do but for as long as your can remember you were taught to grow up and go to work for a paycheck.

Where did that innocence go? What changed? Work is the place where you spend some of the most dedicated and focused time of your life. For most people work is stressful and a societal requirement for being grown up. In this session your Feedback coach is focused on working with you to redefine work as the place you thrive and enjoy. There is no greater joy than to live from this place. Everything makes sense, everything flows.

What You Will Hear
Using the language of your DISCOVERY your mentor will explore with you how to begin to architect your work so it is more aligned with who you are and what it is you do. Working together with others for a purpose bigger that yourself is obviously rewarding and a meaningful endeavor unless you are being asked on a consistent basis to do things you just don’t do. We will look at which work activities are most instinctive to you and the steps you need to take to be more effective and experience your work life in a less stressful way.

What You Will Learn
You will learn why your job may be more tedious than it should be. We’ll help you find ways to make it more meaningful and more fun. You will understand how to begin to re-arrange your job so you can release more passion into your work. Few people are where they need to be with their work. We will help point you in the right direction by creating a strategy for making you more effective, increasing your value to the overall mission while we add to your work satisfaction. Finally you will learn the real reasons you were hired as you discover ways to make your results shine.
