It is all about balance in your life.
You are a unique person. The fact is that less than 5% of our population has a healthy self-esteem.
Dr. Joyce works with each person until they achieve self-esteem, knowledge of their strengths and weaknesses (which she terms ‘underdeveloped strengths’), what is important to them, and what their abilities are. Identifying and improving an individual’s sense of “how they feel about themselves” is crucial to success. You cannot accomplish anything big without knowing this. Your self-esteem has a direct positive influence on attitude and performance. What do you see when you look in that mirror? This knowledge can change your life.
The SECOND STEP is the DISC model. Now, you can harness the power of DISC to gain valuable insight into what makes you tick.
DISC assessments are accurate psychological tests built from the renowned research of respected psychologist, William Moulton Marston, which aim to classify subjects’ behavior. Online DISC assessments can help you better understand what drives your personal interactions in the workplace, in social situations and within your family.
The THIRD STEP is the Attribute Index™ This index measures an individual’s internal ability by separating intrinsic, extrinsic, and systemic values.
This index will scientifically measure the value systems of individuals, so that they know how to excel in any given situation. This index is based on the ORIGINAL work of Dr. Robert S. Hartman. Robert Hartman had three PhD’s — in math, philosophy, and law. While living in Germany, he saw the way people thought and how they saw the GOOD in BAD things happening. As a result, he wondered how he could make people think good, instead. He worked twenty years on developing the science of AXIOLOGY – the science of how people think, how the mind sees experiences and assigns value. Wouldn’t you like to know that about yourself? Can you imagine how important knowing your attributes and “underdeveloped skills? Dr. Hartman’s index has been validated in over 30 scientific studies. It has been shown to be an extremely accurate means of assessing an individual’s level of ability in over 80 key areas.
Using the Hartman Index from Innermetrix, she can also provide reliable insights into the value systems, motivations, and talents of individuals in the context of the job or task to be performed.
The Attribute Index™ gauges the individual’s internal abilities by measuring values. Unlike any other index, it scientifically measures the decision-making style of individuals to assist in recognizing job candidates with the right skills.
Dr. Knudsen is an authorized distributor with certifications as both CIC (Certified Innermetrix Consultant) and CIDC (Certified Innermetrix Distributing Consultant). In bringing the Attribute Index™ capabilities to you, for the first time, through Dr. Hartman, you will be using an acclaimed and proven tool.
The Key Benefits:
This index is used as a tool to identify values, talents and motivations associated with people. This index is scientific and therefore cannot be “fooled”. and finally, this index complements and verifies the information obtained from behavioral profiles. Together, it gives you all the information you need to know about yourself.
The FOURTH STEP is the Balanced System. This process includes the “fun” the others leave out & rounds off all the other assessments.
This step involves learning people skills, known as soft skills. personal attributes that enable someone to interact effectively and harmoniously with other people. Soft skills are the personal attributes you need to succeed in the workplace. Regardless of the job you’re applying for, you need at least some soft skills. The other type of skill set employers seek are hard skills directly relevant to the job they are hiring for.
Life Coaching will open a whole new field of opportunity and reward for YOU.
It’s a self-discovery process that meets critical needs. You receive ready-made, tested and proven materials that will change your life. Once you change your life, you can also use these same tools for consultations with individual clients who are seeking, not only impression coaching, but broader “personal success coaching.” You will gain great self-insight, valuable to you in promoting your business.
The Self-Awareness Process was developed by Joyce M. Knudsen, PhD, Founder and President of The ImageMaker, Inc.®, incorporating by permission, proven and accepted assessment tools from Various assessment companies.
“Your self-esteem level, success and challenges MUST be understood before you can be successful in life. We teach you how to transparent and become an authentic you and a True Giver. It is only when you have high self-esteem, that you can become self-actualized, in which case, NOTHING and NO ONE can ever hurt you. ~Dr. Joyce

What does a life coach do?
Coaches make dreams happen. First, they do it for themselves, so they can be an expert, and then they do this for other people.
Teach people HOW to FOCUS and ask the question…”What do I really want?”
Teach the client and helps them to set GOALS. Goals help with this FOCUS. Just pick one thing. Dr. Mark Goulston, Author of GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY, suggests that you “look back in order to look forward.” Examine your goals at the end of the day and during a typical week, grade each appointment or listing on a scale of -3 to +3 where -3 means “If I never do this again, it’ll be too soon” and +3 means “If I could do this all day long, and I can’t wait to do it again.” Once you are able to identify the recurring themes, you’ll be able to better focus on your dreams.
Teaches people to ask Questions, such as. (1) “What would I regret if I did not achieve this goal? And (2) What would I do if I knew I could not fail?”
Teaches people how to DIAGNOSE behavioral patterns. Your client may not know the negative behavior that is holding them back. There may be a missing positive trait that can move your forward. Identifying their strengths is as important as naming their weaknesses because they may be guided by these opposing factors.
A life coach helps you rid yourself of self-defeating behaviors.
Teaches people how to SHARE or have a SUPPORT GROUP/TEAM. Research shows that a support team works best with 5 people with diverse backgrounds – your friend from Church, your Pastor, a Trusted Colleague, and any person you admire. A diverse group will help with creative solutions and are more likely to be plugged into networks and resources that you may not otherwise be able to use.
LIFE COACHES ARE LEADERS
A Coach must also be a Leader as they lead their client to this milestone they are seeking.
Being a leader is about creating what you want - whether it is with others or essentially alone. It is about connecting with what it takes to create what is important.
It is about leading on purpose.
Purpose is about business and personal objectives.
Purpose is about identity: assumptions, vision and what is important to you/your client.
It is about Right Action.
Right action includes
Right Action is getting the right people doing the right things in the right way at the right time, and in the right way.
In business, leading is about attuning and engaging with others to create some things that no one could create alone. These "things" are often business objectives or responses to crises. In times of increasing turbulence, complexity and rapid change, these things continuously change and shift in priority. Leading requires enhancing your awareness about the conditions generated by change. Awareness is the single most important business skill. Without it your decisions and actions are less effective.
In life we are each leaders of our own adventures. Integrity and achievement are products of self-leadership. Integrity involves clarity about what is important to us and how the actions we take reflect this. Being a leader in your own life means taking responsibility for
What it is you are committed to and how you demonstrate that.
Using your strengths and developing new ones to contribute to your own performance.
Being clear about how you want to relate to others and taking action to develop those relationships, and
Engaging with the universe of opportunity and possibility to create the life you want.
You focus on what is important to you as you challenge your values, beliefs, goals and assumptions, and develop action that will move you towards achieving what you want through Right Action.
Technical skills may get you an interview, but soft skills will get you the job.
Though you can’t measure soft skills the way you can hard skills, that doesn’t make them any less important. Some examples of soft skills include creativity, analytical thinking, multitasking, verbal and written communications, time management and leadership. You’ll likely see these “soft skills” popping up in job descriptions, next to demands for technical qualifications. Employment experts agree that tech skills may get you an interview, but these soft skills will get you the job—and help you keep it:
The good news is that, like any skill, soft skills can be learned. The better news? Boosting your soft skills not only gives you a leg up on a new job or a promotion, but these skills also have obvious applications in all areas of a person’s life, both professional and personal.
Life coaching is a collaborative process in which a trained professional works with you for a desired result the client is looking for. The client achieve their personal life goals. These goals may include things like more self-confidence, weight loss, career change, better relationships, more business success, better nutrition, smooth transitions, and improved personal growth.
People from every possible age, background, and occupation get coaching, but they all have one thing in common: a desire to achieve something more in their personal or professional life. Whatever your goals, a professional coach gives you motivation, accountability and support, keeping you focused and taking action from week to week.
What Life Coaching is not
A common misconception is that coaching is the same as or similar to therapy, but the two are quite different. Therapy is intended to help people recover from emotional or other psychological disorders such as depression or anxiety. Coaching, on the other hand, is intended to help normal, healthy individuals achieve personal goals in areas such as personal growth, health, relationships, and career. Professional coaches are not trained or licensed to practice therapy. If you are at all unsure about whether you need coaching or therapy, we strongly recommend that you consult with a licensed therapist or psychiatrist.
