Success with Strengths I plan to generate images with #successwithstrengths for my friends, clients, and strengths enthusiasts to use to celebrate their unique strengths–in no particular order. This page will be updated as I find time but follow @tracydiziere for the latest, search via hashtag, and/or subscribe to the Strengths Enthusiast list. I also have a Pinterest board, Embracing Strengths. Connectedness...

Knowing Yourself – The Start of Your Success Journey

on April 26 in Authenticity, Clarity Through Strengths | 0 comments

I believe that success starts with knowing yourself–and defining your version of the word.  When we begin tapping into our authentic selves, we start to uncover what is unique to us. We begin to notice where we have deviated or fallen away from the path that is of our own design. And while perhaps different than what is expected, our idea of success–and our experience of it–is enhanced by our self-knowledge. When you step into knowing yourself, it is the beginning of the journey to owning and embracing your authentic self–and what you are capable of. This knowing is a huge key to capitalizing on positive contributions and appreciating what you can do for others. But knowing, owning, and embracing our authentic selves can be a challenge. There are barriers like competing expectations from within and externally. There are rules we have for others and ourselves about how we are supposed to show up. And some of us don’t want to do the work of self-reflection and discovery. Even for those interested in this process, life seems to have no pause button – when is there time to look inward, to ask the important questions? When we believe in the impact these efforts can have, we carve out the time to do it.  For starters, we are much better equipped to succeed when we operate from a place of knowing what’s important to us and what our natural talents are. A major turning point in life can start us on this path to knowing ourselves–and wanting more for ourselves. It may be an upheaval like a divorce, a layoff, or a health issue that propels us to reexamine what we’re doing in our lives. For me, it started with my cancer success story (which I spoke about on May 22; see video below) But major life changes are not the only reason to evaluate ourselves or “dream bigger.”  Many people simply acknowledge that they can raise the bar on their successes during the course of everyday life. And entrepreneurial-minded leaders understand the necessity of leading themselves in this way. They just need some clarity around what direction to take. This is also where looking inward and knowing yourself can provide the answers–and the necessary actions–for greater success....

Finding Your Strengths: My Journey and Purpose

on March 31 in #30DaysofQ2, Clarity Through Strengths, Strengths | 0 comments

Today I am in San Francisco for the first day of the Gallup Successful Strengths Coaching Program and it is the last day of #30DaysofQ2. (Confession: I am late in posting but I drafted this on Day 30.) Looking Inward and Finding Your Strengths It’s not often we spend the time to take stock and find our strengths. But they can tell us so much . . . especially when clarity, inspiration, or change seem like distant planets. That’s why I decided to take this journey. So many friends, would-be entrepreneurs, and current business owners can benefit from knowing themselves authentically, and aligning their jobs, brands, service offerings, and lives accordingly. By bringing strengths into focus, I can help entrepreneurial-minded leaders bring about a clearer vision of where they need to go, gain more momentum to get there, and amass the courage to make the changes required to do so. I’m excited to use the knowledge I gained to fulfill my promise to Creative Partnering(TM) Engagement clients: I create a safe space for you to be and discover yourself, to practice embracing and LOVING your strengths, and being inspired to ACT and LEAD with strengths while sharing your newfound discoveries with others so that we may all better understand one another.  Does using YOUR strengths to find your direction, create more clarity, gain much-needed focus, or bring a big idea to life appeal to you? Become a Strengths Enthusiast to learn more or contact me to see if creative partnering using strengths as a tool is for you. (NOTE: Updated May 2018 to reflect how my training is being put to use...
