Their Dreams…

... And Us


| By Lynn Nauth | Staff Support |

As the consumers build trust with us and become more open and transparent about how they feel and think, as well as sharing their dreams and asking us questions about how it will look, when it will occur, is what they believe or want right or wrong, we must increase our awareness about our level of influence in their lives.  We must be clear about our roles and responsibilities in the context of how we relate and support them.

Thank You


| By Lynn Nauth | Personal Growth |

Hey guys, I just wanted to say thanks again for everything. Working at Gracelyn was one of the best experiences I have ever had. I have learned more than I thought was possible over the last 2 years, including a lot about myself. I came into this field not knowing much about it, and now it’s something that I feel very passionate about. I really appreciate the opportunities you gave me, and it was awesome being part of the team.
Thank again!

Nurturing

At the heart of the nurturing process is genuine concern for others. 


| By Lynn Nauth | Coaching Paradigm |

To motivate someone successfully and permanently is through nurturing them.  You must possess positive feelings for others to make a positive impact.

What a nurturer gets right:

| Acceptance.  Love always find a way to help, indifference finds only excuses.

| Believe.  People will rise or fall to meet your expectations.

| Commitment.  Initially you will need to spend more time with them and less as they build confidence in themselves.

| Unattached support.  If you need people, you cannot lead them.  Let them choose and experience without expectations.

| Opportunities.  Support that fosters opportunities to take risks that build strength, courage and self confidence.

| Encourage.  Inspire people to achieve the highest and best within them.

Responding positively - behaviors like complaining and blaming - holds us in the past and prevents us from creating healthy relationships. Ultimately, when we choose to speak about or evaluate someone else or situation in a critical, derogatory, we are holding that person or circumstances for our happiness or unhappiness.  However, if we choose to evaluate ourselves by examining what we are thinking, feeling and doing, we can become aware how to best choose our response.

Autism: The Musical

Autism: The Musical celebrates the spark of humanity in each of us.


| By Lynn Nauth | Autism |

http://www.amazon.com/gp/mpd/permalink/m2U87NZC66XM7L

Autism: The Musical follows the extraordinary and innovative acting coach Elaine Hall, five autistic children, and their parents as they improbably, heroically mount a full-length original stage production. Through trial and error, tears and laughter, these incredible families learn to communicate their feelings in song and performance, finding solace and joy in the act of creating.

A veritable feast of astounding breakthroughs and heartbreaking hardship, this spellbinding film offers a full-throated celebration of kids living with this increasingly prevalent disorder. Director Tricia Regan vividly captures the individual personalities and problems of each child, from precocious Henry who talks a mile-a-minute about dinosaurs to Neal, a sensitive and articulate boy who nonetheless struggles to speak at all. The parents, too, are fascinating studies in unconditional love, especially Elaine, the mastermind behind the musical and mother of Neal.

A consciousness-raising and empathetic portrait of children and their families living with autism, Autism: The Musical celebrates the spark of humanity in each of us. Called ‘Moving, dramatic, therapeutic and unburdened by reliance on talking heads’; (Variety), this film will change the way you look at autism.

Strengths Finder 2.0

Discover what makes you stand out…


| By Lynn Nauth | Personal Growth |

In 1998, the Father of Strengths Psychology, Donald O. Clifton, Ph.D. (1924-2003), along with Tom Rath and a team of scientists at The Gallup Organization, created the online StrengthsFinder assessment. In 2001, they included the first edition of StrengthsFinder with the bestseller Now, Discover Your Strengths. In 2004, the assessment’s name was formally changed to “Clifton StrengthsFinder” in honor of its chief designer.

In 2007, building on the initial assessment and language from StrengthsFinder 1.0, Rath and Gallup scientists released a new edition of the assessment, program, and website, dubbed “StrengthsFinder 2.0.” Rooted in more than 40 years of research, this assessment has helped millions discover and develop their natural talents.
