Artistic Occupational Diversity - Staying Steadfast With Your Initial Art & Pursuing an Additional Domain of Purposeful & Creative Interest. A Creatively Divergent Professional Life of Design –-
The only person you’re destined to be is the person you decide to be. -Ralph Waldo Emerson
The concepts and modalities of Human Potential Development Coaching are the heart and soul of Artistic Integration. The systems-based program I’ve constructed focuses on the discovery and development of an Artist’s diversified potentialities through personal and professional assessment, evaluative observation, and experimentation, because to express yourself, you need to know yourself. It’s a multidisciplinary analysis, a holistic approach to creating purposeful vocational diversification - keeping your Art, and having a second vocation of meaning and artistic worth, which I’ve come to call Symphony. Strategic occupational integration is nothing short of a 21stcentury ideological Renaissance for today’s struggling Artists, a progressive architecture for creative and purposeful occupational diversity…Da Vinci style.
Professionalism is about having the integrity, honesty, and sincere regard for the personhood of the client. -Eric Lippert
Many years ago I met a legendary artist who looked me square in the eyes and stated, if you can’t take your work seriously, what’s the point. Sometimes, you just get thrown an irrefutable truth. Involvement in the elevation and achievement of an individual’s personal and professional aspirations is my work - and I take it seriously!
It’s the process of constructive collaboration, intuitive questioning, active listening and purposeful guidance done with a clear respect to one’s personhood that facilitates a productive, working relationship. Anything less is a disservice to my client, and to myself, and that certainty drives me to keep my professional standards high.
Everything comes to you that belongs to you if you create the capacity to receive it -Rabindranath Tagore-
As members of the Artistic community, I have no doubt each and every one of you has already procured a relationship with this combinatorial discipline called creativity. My thrust as a Certified Creativity Coach is twofold: It encompasses helping you to identify, diversify and discharge your creative talents, a distributive cognitive undertaking. More importantly, it involves working with you in the area of generative personal innovation. Neuroscience has shown us that generativity is the basic process that drives all the behavior you’ve come to label as creative, and that process can be specifically directed toward an “innovation of the self,” a new and more diversified portrait of your professional persona directed toward creatively, intellectually, and artistically expanding your value to the marketplace. Creative Integration – an end to selling your soul all-day and trying to buy it back at night. Your life should be centered on the multiplicity of your creative talents discovered, reimagined, and shared in your domains of choice.

In an age of subliminal messaging bombarding us through mass media and our use of technology where coercion of thought exists as a daily staple, it is of the upmost necessity that we have someone calling us to discover our true self and attain true independence. In these times where it is important to develop our consciousness soul, this work is a positive contribution toward that end. -- Dr. Robert Cwiertniak - Psychologist PhD
Jake Kot is one of the great philosophers for these times whose work will jar you out of your illusions, insecurities, and, most importantly, your discontent. The Art of Self-Empowerment is the handbook for living through your power, and seeing the world from a different lens – one where you can create, thrive, and enjoy the journey. – Sherry Prindle, Founder of the Professional Coach Academy
The more accurately and precisely you fathom what you truly care about, the more you stand to discover that your creative interests and their associated meaningful points actually exist in a far broader range of occupations than you have until now been used to entertaining. What you artistically want to pursue exists in places beyond what you may have imagined, or identified. Remember that “Art” is the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, and you remain an “Artist,” wherever these human tactics are engaged.
