Many of the problems I see in businesses — if not relationships in general — stem from either a misunderstanding of others or a focus on our challenges rather than our strengths. So I’m doing a 4-part Dear Coach series on the DISC behavioral types to help us better recognize our own motivations as well as others’. Today I’m featuring The I, who is The Influencer.
It was my pleasure to have Clint Parry of Focus HR on the show. Clint has a passion for business growth and personal development. He helps small business owners accelerate their growth through HR outsourcing. We spoke in depth about the “art,” strategy, and value of Human Resources.

I am often asked questions about how to improve a company’s marketing efforts, so in today’s Dear Coach I’m excited to talk about why I created my online marketing course.
I’ve been studying behavioral analysis, and the DISC assessment in particular, since I started my practice in 2006. The whole point of using tools like the DISC is to move what we sense to be true about ourselves into conscious action. A big challenge with applying self awareness is the one-size-fits-all solution, which is prevalent in marketing.

Small business owners pour themselves into their businesses. We often start our companies for very personal reasons. If we’re lucky enough to beat the odds and stay open for more than a few years, our own name becomes synonymous with what we do. What we contribute. Who we are to our community. Now, coronavirus is greatly affecting how we usually get to express ourselves. Maybe the things we’ve always done best, the services we’ve always had to offer, are the very things we temporarily cannot do. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t show up for others, and maybe it even means that we now have a chance to show up for ourselves. So if you’re having a bit of an identity crisis at the moment, here are some observations I’d like to share with you.
Before opening her art gallery and becoming an iconic Tucson painter, Diana operated a high-profile sports marketing company that promoted major sporting events such as the LPGA and PGA golf tournaments. A month-long painting trip to Greece in 1993 changed her life, prompting her to sell her marketing company and devote her career to painting. She has since been voted Tucson’s Best Visual Artist 9 times.
Check out my 1st Anniversary show with a panel of Tucson’s arts and entertainment gurus! My guests are Karen Fogas of The Fox Tucson Theatre, Curtis McCrary of The Rialto Theatre, and Kate Calhoun of the Tucson Convention Center. I’m excited to start the New Year with this panel because I love Tucson. These folks play a big part in our downtown renaissance and the ways in which Tucson has retained a unique identity. Thanks for the memories!
Today’s Dear Coach is a riff on a New Year’s topic that comes up a lot with clients this time of year, and it’s what I call New Year’s Goal Bloat. This time of year people love the feeling of a clean slate. It feels good to kick off the new year with goals and that sense of a fresh start. But when you’re thinking of what you’d like to accomplish this year, remember that it’s a marathon, not a sprint. And like a marathon, to achieve your goals you need to chunk them down into defined, progressive milestones. I suggest beginning with the end and working backwards from there. Here’s how to start.
