Revolutionizing Organizational Cultures in Minnesota (while wearing red lipstick, of course!) with Alissa Daire Nelson

“My 100-year vision is that Minnesota is the place that the rest of the country looks to see how business is done.” -Alissa Daire Nelson

Alissa’s Top 5: Futuristic, Woo, Positivity, Activator, Strategic

In this episode, we discuss:

  • When Alissa first took the CliftonStrengths Assessment and where she was at that point in her life and career
  • Alissa’s initial reaction to her Top 5 and how it took some time for her to see them as strengths to build upon instead of weaknesses
  • How Daire 2 Succeed came to be and Alissa’s ideal client
  • The vision Alissa has for making an impact on the healthcare industry in Minnesota
  • Alissa’s biggest challenge as she works to take her business to the next level

Although Alissa is now a successful Business and Leadership Coach, her background in healthcare as a Registered Dietitian and a Registered Nurse serves as the inspiration for where she plans to take Daire 2 Succeed next. She is passionate about changing the healthcare industry by addressing the toxicity and burnout that healthcare workers face. Alissa has big plans to change the culture of healthcare and the culture of business in her home state of Minnesota, and we can’t wait to see what she will accomplish. Thanks for chatting with us, Alissa!
