Do You Know Who You Are At Your CORE?

Do you truly know yourself? Are you living a life that is more in tune with your “authentic” self, who you were created to be; or your “imagined” self, who the world expects you to be? Decebalus seems to have both known who he was, and what he wanted others to know about him. If you want to know who you truly are at your core, Hillary can help; she is a certified CORE Multidimensional Awareness Profile® (aka CORE MAP) facilitator.

The CORE assessment that is truly multidimensional and integrated. This profile is robust enough to uncover conditioned effects, reveal the authentic you and provide specific feedback for rapid, highly efficient development. CORE gets to the root of what has been holding you back and preventing you from achieving the outcomes you are after both personally and professionally.

The CORE profile doesn’t just deal with the surface answers of where you happen to be today, the way traditional personality assessments do as with the Myers-Briggs test or the DiSC®assessments do, or say “here’s what you are, so this is what you should do.” It actually looks at how you would behave in an ideal world! How cool is that?

A Tool To Help You Become Who You Always Should Have Been

We had been searching for such a tool for a long time, especially for our academic and career transition clients, to help them both truly know themselves, and give them a measurable way to see the progress they have made over time. Most of us know the quote from Shakepeare’s Hamlet: “This above all: to thine own self-be true,” but do you remember the next bit? “And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any [hu]man.”

This system recognizes that the issue is not necessarily ability, but how much energy or effort it takes to maintain what we are doing. People who focus upon and develop that which naturally motivates and energizes them quickly become much more effective and satisfied in every area of their life. Working with your nature is like floating downstream. It’s easy, it’s fun and you can enjoy the scenery along the way.

  • Have you ever struggled with knowing who you really are?
  • Do you define yourself based on what you are good at, not what you want to learn to do?
  • Are you known to be a “good” friend, “hard” worker, “responsible” parent?

When it comes to finding the authentic self, that treasure is sometimes buried much deeper than we think. With a tool like the CORE profile, you can get there a lot faster.

It’s never too late to change.

CORE ProfileThe CORE Map takes a “whole brain” approach.  Many of you know we have spent a good bit of time researching “coaching with the brain in mind” to understand why this accountability process works so well, especially for academics who often have a naturally skeptical approach to this kind of work.

You should be successful and to love your work.  There is passion, excitement, and confidence to be found as well as incredible satisfaction with your calling once you are truly on the path to a vibrant life.  Working with your nature makes a career path seem like play. You truly enjoy what you do, there is a passion connected to your work, and you quickly become very good at it. That’s because nature itself jumps in to help you succeed.

If you want your life at work to be as pleasant as your life at play, you owe it to yourself to take advantage of the thirty-minute complimentary strategy session.

What Is The CORE Difference?

CORE DifferenceWhether we are assessing ourselves or being assessed by someone else, we use the traits we are able to observe to make the assessment. Some commonly used profiles that fit into this category are DISC, Wilson, Hire Success, PREP and Personality Plus. The profiles that use colors rather than names to differentiate the four styles also fall into this group. Among those are the Birkman Method, the Color Code, and the Drake personality profile.For the portion of the population that is self-aware enough to profile accurately, any of the profiles will produce a good result.  However, far less than half the population is reporting accurately even when they try. Add to that, the fact that almost everyone who has ever taken a personality profile knows how to skew most profiles to get the result they want, and your chances of getting an accurate result is very slim on single dimensional profiles. CORE MAP has eliminated that factor. No single dimensional profile has sufficient cross-checking features to check for erroneous reporting or purposeful skewing. CORE, being multidimensional, does.

The CORE profile provides a clear and accurate picture of the complete personality.  It measures self perception, current functioning, how effectively an individual is using the entire spectrum of personality traits, and compares each of them for congruence.  It also describes and predicts current coping patterns, measures emotional intelligence (EQ) and provides specific information to help individuals move in the direction of greater personal effectiveness and success.
