Discover the gift that is uniquely you
“Every human being is born with some sort of gift, an inclination or an instinct that can become a full-blown mastery. Each of us is a master at something, and part of becoming fully alive is to discover and develop our birthright competence.” –Parker Palmer
Deni Tato is a certified Master Facilitator of the Core Gift Discovery™ process. Your Core Gift is your deepest “why” that underlies all your other “whys.”
The seed or essence of our Core Gift™ comes with us into the world. It is embedded in our being, and ready to be awakened and used. It is why babies are born with their fists tightly held and maintain those fists for a long time. They are securely holding onto that seed so they can share it with the world during their lifetime. Through our early socialization process, most become unaware of their gift. Instead, they compare themselves to others, longing for gifts that don’t belong to them.
Compatible with research in positive psychology, and purpose-driven behavior in individuals and organizations, the Core Gift Discovery™ tool utilizes a unique facilitated process that results in a person developing an action statement that details their primary life purpose (Core Gift™) and 3-5 other gifts that most contribute to that purpose.
Unlike a strengths inventory (i.e., StrengthFinders), this unique profile doesn’t compare you with others and doesn’t use general descriptors of your traits in predetermined areas. The results are designed by you, unique to you, and verified by you. There is no correlation between strengths and motivation – and motivation is essential to success.
Your Core Gift™ is different from your purpose. Your purpose is how you choose to execute on your Core Gift™. Purpose is an internal quest that is cultivated and changes over your lifetime.
Your Core Gift™ can be described “as coming through us not from us.” I believe you need to know your Core Gift™ before you can create a purpose-driven life.
The result is often surprising and can have a powerful impact on understanding past behavior, current difficulties, and point a clear path to future positive action in all parts of life. It can be used to guide career choices, education, and job satisfaction. It can help you discover and provide solutions to root causes of relationship issues and analyze work behaviors, both positive and negative.
The process takes about 90 minutes to complete and results in your individualized Core Gift™ Statement. The entire process is designed to draw out your unique you.
