"What if all you had to do to be a leader was
speak and listen in a slightly different way, and
suddenly, you would be connecting with others and
changing the world?"
When most of us think of "leaders," we think of
other people. We think of those rare people
who seem to have extraordinary passion, unusual
intelligence, super-human energy and NO fear. When
most of us think of leaders, we don't think of
Successful leaders speak in a way that people

What clients are saying about us.....
Following the merger of four multi-billion dollar
aerospace companies, I was asked to lead a
technology transition team chartered to integrate
and develop the combined technologies.
The PEOPLE Process proved to be an invaluable tool
for choosing and building the team comprised of
scientists, engineers and physicists that are among
the top in the world. Because the technical
community often emphasizes the technical (hard
stuff) over the people (soft stuff), the materials
provided a powerful, unique and practical way to get
the team members to understand and complement
their differences and strengths. Above all, it was
key to developing strong personal and professional
relationships and enabled effective communication
among team members who had been arch rivals and
competitors for many years prior to the merger.

We have found this product to be effective in
training diplomats in negotiation and crisis
management skills, retrenched fishermen in job
seeking skills, managers in hi-tech organizations in
career development, hospital emergency-room staff
in managing conflict encounters, civil servants in time
management skills, trainers in advanced facilitation
skills, and entrepreneurs in new business start-ups.
Without exception, participants have been able to
relate easily to the use of the system, are amazed at
the uncanny accuracy of the personality type profile,
and have been able to apply The PEOPLE Process in
their daily work.

love it because it has been delightfully accurate and
is a practical "take-away" that they can share with
the significant people in their lives. I highly
recommend it as a key tool for facilitators to use to
assess personality type preferences.
