What would you love to create?
Welcome! My name is Tracy Loring. I am an Artist, Facilitator, and Creative Coach.
My mission is to help people reconnect to their heart and express their truth in the world,
Whether it's trying to identify and solve a business problem, create a vision and strategy to drive results, align your team, engage your workforce, or create the personal life you would love, I help you get clarity on what you are trying to achieve and help you put structures in place to achieve it.
Deep down inside, I've always been a teacher.
My first teaching gig was teaching art classes on the weekends in college. I loved it so much that after graduation, I started working full time teaching art and doing trade shows for a local rubber stamp company. I then moved into the tech industry and spent over 20 years creating and teaching courses, facilitating workshops, leading learning and development teams, and coaching individuals and leaders to reach their potential.
While I was successful in my business life, I wasn't fulfilled in my personal life. Something was missing. I started working with a coach who introduced me to the Creative Orientation - the process of intentionally creating what you would love in your life. I learned tools and resources to help me see what was holding me back and how to focus my energy on what I wanted to create. I became more compassionate for others, for myself, and was amazed at how much joy was suddenly in my world. This sense of joy and fulfillment carried into my business life where I started to bring creative premises into my day-to-day work. I became a happier leader, co-worker, wife, friend, mother, and overall human. It became clear that it was time for me to share what I had learned and guide others in creating the joy and fulfillment in their lives.
One of my favorite quotes is attributed to Pablo Picasso -
"The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away."
I've learned that my gift is in helping people see the greatness in themselves and how to get out of their own way to achieve it.
Creative Premises in Action
In every experience I design and deliver, I help people tap into the most creative parts of themselves and connect to what truly serves them. Whether you are attending one of my art or business workshops, partnering with me to consult on your learning and development solution, or working with me in one-to-one coaching, I infuse creative premises into everything I do.
Sometimes I even throw a little paint into the mix.
Check out my podcast, Creative Musings, to hear more from myself and others about putting creative premises into practice.
Facilitation and Consulting
As an experienced coach, facilitator, instructional designer, and learning and development program leader, I focus on strategies to kick start your team building and design end-to-end development solutions that close performance gaps and create measurable impact.
I specialize in:
Global Program Management
Interpersonal Conflict Management
Communication Best Practices
I love to inspire, to teach, and to create art. One of my favorite things about teaching is seeing the joy in my student's faces as they connect with their pure creative spirit and behold their creations.
I believe that art is about self expression and evoking an emotional reaction from the viewer, even if that viewer is only ever yourself. We are all artists creating and expressing who we are in the world. Yet somehow over time, many of us lose our connection with our inner artist. An underlying theme in all of my workshops is connecting you to that budding artist inside waiting to break free.
When I started teaching art workshops, I observed there was often a barrier that people had to overcome before they could let go and enjoy what they created. In my corporate career, I noticed a similar observation in the workplace. There was often something that held people back from communicating clearly or behaving in ways that helped them achieve success.
Over time I've come to realize that we have the ability to rise above the trappings of our day to day and tap into a different part of ourselves - the part of ourselves where true creativity lies. Once you get to that place, the sky's the limit in what you can create in your life.
With one-to-one coaching, my goal is to help my clients identify the underlying structures and resulting behaviors that are holding them back. I help them re-focus on the vision of what they are trying to create, and provide tools and resources to help them live a more compassionate and joyful life while creating what they would love.
“Learning is finding out what you already know.
Doing is demonstrating that you know it.
Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you."
