In a world filled with noise, Elaine's voice is a clear and guiding echo, leading you toward a life of genuine passion and intent.

"For years, I wandered through life without a clear sense of purpose or direction, often feeling overwhelmed by other people's expectations. Enter Dr. Elaine Friedrich. Through our sessions, not only did I identify my core values, but I also discovered passions I hadn't realized existed within me. And of course, we worked to design a plan of action to live into that calling.

Today, thanks to Elaine, I wake up with a renewed sense of excitement, purpose, and clarity. Her wisdom and guidance have been transformative, allowing me to align my life with my genuine values and passions. I can't thank her enough for reigniting the spark within me."

Ā Mike GilliamĀ 

"Are you clear about the direction your life is taking?
Do you recognize your own unique strengths and talents?
It's essential to deliberately seek those answers ā€“ because if you're uncertain about your innate abilities and life's direction, any journey may seem right, even if it isn't the best fit for you.
In my experience, no one is more adept at guiding you through this self-discovery than Elaine.
She possesses a unique talent for aiding individuals in introspection, helping them unearth their strengths and set clear objectives.
Through the life design sessions, Elaine has been instrumental in unveiling my abilities and guiding me to structure and steer my life with purpose."

Live Your Life On-Purpose

Understanding your life purpose not only benefits your individual journey, but also has a positive impact on organizations. When you are clear about your purpose, you are able to align your personal goals with the larger objectives of the organization you are a part of. This alignment creates a sense of harmony and synergy, allowing you to contribute in a meaningful way towards the collective mission and vision of the organization. Furthermore, when individuals within an organization are aligned with their life purpose, they bring a sense of passion and drive to their work. This can lead to increased productivity, innovation, and creativity within the organization. When everyone is working towards a shared purpose, there is a strong sense of camaraderie and teamwork, which can elevate the performance and success of the entire organization.

In addition, when individuals are clear about their life purpose within an organization, they are more likely to feel motivated, engaged, and committed to their work. This can lead to higher levels of job satisfaction, retention, and overall employee well-being. By fostering a culture where individuals are encouraged to discover and pursue their life purpose, organizations can create a more fulfilling and productive work environment for all.

Learn Insights about Your Personality

The DISC assessment is a powerful tool that helps individuals gain insight into their own behavior and communication styles. By completing the assessment, you are able to understand your natural tendencies in how you interact with others and approach tasks. This self-awareness can lead to improved relationships with coworkers, friends, and family members as you learn how to adapt your communication style to better connect with others. The assessment also provides valuable information on how you handle conflict, make decisions, and handle stress, allowing you to develop strategies for personal growth and improved effectiveness in various situations.

Not only does the DISC assessment benefit individuals, but it also has the potential to positively impact organizations. By understanding the communication and behavioral styles of employees, managers can create more cohesive teams, improve collaboration, and enhance overall productivity. The assessment can also be used in hiring and development processes to ensure that individuals are placed in roles that align with their strengths and preferences, leading to higher job satisfaction and retention rates. Ultimately, the insights gained from the DISC assessment can help organizations foster a more positive and productive work environment for all employees.
