styles through Ken's thorough and entertaining presentation. Many

"I have used several "personality style" indicators. After participating in your program, I found the Personal Style Indicator developed
by your company to be a better fit for business use than some of the
high priced professional personality inventories I have used in the
past. Your presentation had practical applications for sales and
marketing people. I recommend you and your programs to all SME people at
every level of their organization."
J. Lawrence Dressor, President

I consider the MBTI to be a very effective tool for providing quality
feedback, it can be very cumbersome to use. Workshop participants
frequently struggle with grasping the interrelationships between the
four different continuums and rarely remember their type after one
exposure. On the other hand, participants easily understood the Personal Style Indicator and
style-shifting. More importantly, because of it's practical, straight
forward nature, I believe participants will be able to easily use the PSI back on the job."

"... tools such as the Personal Style Indicator and the Self-Worth Inventory have
many applications for our business, both in terms of organizational
development and for working with health care and human resource
professionals. "How refreshing
it is to attend a training program where the presentation lives up to
the expectation. To use your words, your passion for developing
individuals, families, and organizations came through in your warmth,
friendliness, and presentation skills."
