Who Are You Meant To Be? authors Anne Dranitsaris, Ph.D, and Heather Dranitsaris-Hilliard are no strangers to the dynamics of human behavior. This mother-daughter team observed in their clinical and corporate practices stretching over 3 decades, a serious disconnect between what personality assessments claimed to do and what they actually did. While they themselves used various assessments to help clients build self-awareness, including the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®, Emotional Quotient Inventory®, and other trait assessments, they found none had a development process that showed clients how to change their behavior. Nor did they have any connection to how we learn and how the brain develops new patterns of behavior over time. 

This inspired Dranitsaris and Dranitsaris-Hilliard in 2007 to develop the Striving Styles® Personality System (SSPS) to resolve this issue. They have captured their research and new methodology in a well presented book, Who Are You Meant To Be? This book goes beyond any other personality system or four quadrant model currently available by integrating a century old personality system with breakthroughs in brain science and neuroplasticity. These two behavioral change experts demonstrate how psychological needs originating in the brain are the driving force for the behavior behind each of the functional areas of the brain.  By showing us how the brain actually develops, they demonstrate what we have to do to get beyond the “aha” moment to real growth and development over time.

Organized in three parts, Part One: Who Are You Meant To Be? helps the reader understand how their brain functions. It includes a self-scoring assessment allowing readers to learn what their Predominant Style likely is. An adaptation from the actual SSPS Level I Assessment, the reader is able to go through the chapters on each of the Striving Styles with an eye to their own Style. Part Two: The Eight Striving Styles covers in detail all the components of each of the Striving Styles educating the reader about their Predominant Striving Style and its predominant need and how they behave in trying to get that need met. Part Three: Becoming Your Best Self includes the SSPS Roadmap for Development with it’s step-by-step approach. If followed, it will enable the reader to make lasting change and achieve their potential.

Who You Are Meant To Be? is written from an intelligent pragmatic logical viewpoint supported by science and well proven theories, augmented with actual examples to help you visualize what is being explained. Written for both the practitioner and the lay person, it is speaks in clear, informative, and engaging language that is easy to understand yet not too basic for those in the field. The simplicity of the concept and name Striving Styles is a perfect example of how Dranitsaris and Dranitsaris-Hilliard have managed to bring complex science and psychology together using friendly, widely understood terminology that few people would fail to grasp. They do not try to pretend that development happens without work and effort, but with the step-by-step roadmap and the associated websites they provide you with the opportunity to achieve results whether you choose to do it alone or with help.

 “We have written this book to show you how to fill the gap between what you know and what you do; … so you can achieve your potential and become who you are meant to be.”

Anne Dranitsaris and Heather Dranitsaris-Hilliard

 

Who Are You Meant to Be? is a must have for anyone wanting to understand themselves and others in order to live a more satisfying, fulfilling life.

Inspired by our children, our family, our clients and our friends, we wrote Who Are You Meant to Be? to give people a "user manual" for themselves.
