Tashi Deley is a movement, a way of being. 

Hello you amazing humans, my name is Ali Starr! I get to work for an organization called Tashi Deley (Ta-She De-lay).  Tashi Deley is a Tibet greeting that means "I see you" and “I honor the greatness within you.”  This organization exists to ignite 7.7 billion heartbeats to connect deeper within so that we can honor the greatness within others. Can you imagine a world that honors the greatness within all people¿

I can! 

Tashi Deley serves this way of being through a practice of servant leadership with an intentional focus on emotional intelligence. 

Let's ignite the heartbeats at your event to honor the greatness within themselves and others!

I am aware, I am UNaware

Topic: Self-Awareness

Symbol: Three Mirrors (Best Self, Honesty + Blind Spot)

Time: 45 - 90 Minutes

Delivery: Virtual or In-Person

Quote: The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”  - Marcel Proust

In this keynote your audience will learn the importance of practicing the art of honoring the greatness within themselves and others by understanding the power of being self-aware.

Self-awareness is critical for career success. A recent study found that 95% of people think they’re self-aware; however, only 10-15% truly are (Eurich, Forbes).

  • People who are more self-aware tend to perform better at work and lead more effectively.
  • Companies with self-aware team members have shown to be stronger financial performers.
  • When you are self-aware, you can clearly see how your intentions don’t always meet your impact.

In this keynote, your audience will learn how to look in 3 mirrors: the beautiful mirror, the honesty mirror and the blind spot mirror. They will also learn how to ask trusted and untrusted sources for growth insights. Real growth insights will assist you in your practice of creating the next best version of yourself.

Be the Kind of Leader you Want to Follow

Topic: Communication and Social Skills

Symbol: Lightbulb (HOT - Honest, Open, Transparent) 

Time: 45 - 90 Minutes

Delivery: Virtual or In-Person

Quote: “Hard choices, easy life, easy choices, hard life.”  - Jerzy Gregorek

In this keynote your audience will learn the importance of practicing the art of honoring the greatness within yourself and others by further understanding the importance of honest, open, transparent and clear communication. Which starts with self-awareness. 

Your energy enters the room before you do…are you someone that brightens the room when you walk in, or do the lights dim?

Most companies don’t need better ways to communicate, most companies need to help their team become more self-aware. Self-awareness allows us to reflect and ask for feedback.

Communication statistics:

  • 55% of our communication is in our body
  • 38% of our communication comes from our tone
  • 7% is the words we use

Statistically 9 out of 10 conversations miss the mark, lets close that game with learning how to have courageous and necessary conversations. Courageous conversations allow for a deeper level of understanding, trust and alignment.

Don't Believe Everything You Think

Topic: Self Regulation

Symbol: Ladder (Assumptions + Inferences)

Time: 45 - 90 Minutes

Delivery: Virtual or In-Person

Quote: We suffer more often in imagination than in reality.”  - Seneca

In this keynote your audience will learn the importance of practicing the art of honoring the greatness within yourself and others by being aware of the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves, as well as the stories we tell ourselves about other people.

  • Our brain rewards us for creating an assumption; however, it doesn’t reward us on our accuracy.
  • Our thoughts, both accurate and inaccurate, might be more vital than how we communicate with others.

During this growth focused keynote your audience will be introduced to the ladder of assumptions and will be reminded of what happens when our assumptions go unchecked.

The Coin- serves as a reminder to be curious and to ask good questions. We will practice the art of responding to one another by asking good open-ended questions versus leading with our thoughts, opinions or experiences. It is so powerful to take time to respond versus react!

Start with Self-Forgiveness

Topic: Empathy

Symbol: Heart (Emotional Hijack)

Time: 45 - 90 Minutes

Delivery: Virtual or In-Person

Quote: If you don’t heal what hurt you, you’ll bleed on people who didn’t cut you.”  - Unknown

During this keynote your audience will learn the importance of practicing the art of honoring the greatness within yourself and others by being aware of the importance of vulnerability.

  • Eighty percent of us wish we worked with people that were more empathetic (officevibe.com).
  • It only takes .85 milliseconds for our fight/flight or fix to be triggered, then we are in survival mode.
  • When we are stuck in survival mode we cannot be in thrive mode.
  • Vulnerability aids our ability to be more empathetic.

During this session your audience will learn about the emotional hijack and what happens to your brain\body when you are in an emotional hijack. They will also become more aware of their energy levels and how they might impact their ability to be more empathetic. They will recognize areas of their life that help them gain energy and areas of their life that drain their energy. Bringing these things to light and making them visible results in a deeper level of empathy.

Beginning With the End in Mind

Topic: Motivation

Symbol: Target + Arrow (WHY do you exist) 

Time: 45 - 90 Minutes

Delivery: Virtual or In-Person

Quote: I will give up what I want right now for what I want most.”  - Judy Hehr

In this keynote your audience will learn the importance of practicing the art of honoring the greatness within yourself and others by being inspired to work from a place of higher purpose.

Together we will explore the world of expectations and experiences. When we don’t make our expectations visible it is very unlikely that we will get what we expect. When this happens it usually leads to damaged relationships and mistrust. When we don’t trust our team it becomes challenging to keep momentum and hit goals.

  • We have both silent and verbal expectations of ourselves and of others.
  • Typically, we are disappointed in ourselves or in others when expectations aren’t met.

There is nothing worse than being held to a “silent expectation.” We will learn how to confidently ask for clarity around goals and desired outcomes. We will practice the art of communicating what we need in order to hit the “bullseye.” The arrow and target assist us in our quest to exceed expectations personally and organizationally.

Servant Leadership: How a jar can change the way you lead and serve

Ali takes the TEDx stage with confident vulnerability to share lessons of judgment, assumptions and the risk of believing everything you think.  She demonstrates how, through the practice of servant leadership, she  took a new and intentional approach to seek to understand and build the next best versions of herself.
