Give me 5 minutes of your time and 2009 may end up not being a bust after all!
On a beautiful late-Spring day 25 years ago, two young men graduated from the same college. They were very much alike, these two young men. Both had been better than average students, both were personable, and both—as young college graduates are—were filled with ambitious dreams for the future.
Recently, these men returned to their college for their 25th reunion.
They still were very much alike. Both were happily married. Both had three children. And both, it turned out, had gone to work for the same Midwestern manufacturing company after graduation—and were still there.
But there was a difference. One of the men was the manager of a small department of that company. The other was its president.
What Made The Difference
Have you ever wondered, as I have, what makes this kind of difference in people’s lives? It isn’t always a natural intelligence or talent or dedication. It isn’t the fact that one person wants success and the other doesn’t.
The difference lies in what each person knows and how she or he makes use of that knowledge.
That is why I am writing to you and other Affiliates like you about CRG’s Certification and Training program. The whole purpose of CRG is to provide clients with the knowledge they need so they can live on purpose and help others do the same.
A Training Like None Other
You see, CRG Consulting Resource Group International, Inc. is a unique publication and certification company. We’re the only publishing company that delivers a truly holistic set of assessments and learning tools that can be used in multiple organizations, cultures, and languages.
Our assessments have been created by some of the world’s best professional development experts.
Our publication and certification training provides access to a broad range of information and interest and significance to professional- and personal development-minded people. It’s not just about personal style; it’s about everything that has to do with the holistic development of people, both inside and outside the organization.
It’s a fast-moving world out there. CRG provides you will all the personal and professional development tools you will need to help your clients live on purpose—and you have access to that information 24/7 through our online learning center.
Knowledge Is Power
Right now, I am looking going through our Personal Style Indicator the bedrock of our personal development resources. The PSI provides all the essential features needed to help people get clear—about how they interact with people, time, tasks, and situations that come their way each day—in a manner that is nonthreatening to the individual.
But we have more resources than the Personal Style Indicator. The Job Style Indicator is designed to help organizations get clear about the type of person they are seeking—before they hire the person, invest in him or her, then have to dismiss the individual within 6 months because it was not a good fit. Utilizing the Job Style Indicatorwill go a long way to help you ensure that bad hires are a thing of the past. These days, it is critical that your clients hire right—the first time.
Need to dig a little deeper in some areas? The Sales Style Indicatorcan help a company double its sales. Who doesn’t need that today? Simply by working with the sales and customer service team and helping them understand how they and their customers approach the sales process will lead to a more successful selling experience for all parties.
The Entrepreneurial Style and Success Indicator is a must if you are working with clients entering the express-paced business world on their own and who want to avoid being part of the 80% who don’t make it out of that initial year!
And here’s the thing: All the above holistic tools can be used throughout a company, so everyone is able to communicate clearly with other staff members—even if they have not taken the same assessment!
But wait, there’s more!
CRG has developed another suite of assessments, each filled with fascinating and significant information useful to you and your clients when it comes to understanding values, stress, wellness, and self-worth.
Does your client have a clear picture of what he or she values? Does your organization understand its corporate values? Is it hiring people who are in tune with those values? With our Values Preference Indicator, people and organizations can get clear about their values and the source of those values—some for the first time in their lives!
How are people coping with stress in their lives and what causes stress? Is it really the job? What steps do people need to be taking to live truly healthy lives? Our Stress Indicator and Health Planner is designed to answer those questions. In fact, we recommend that family members of employees also participate so that everyone can take the most effective steps to enjoy lives based on wellness.
Today, companies are in dire need of strong leadership. Does your company have a leadership leak? Our Leadership Skills Inventory tackles questions about key leadership competencies, to ensure the company survives the turmoil going on around us.
Much of the information covered in our assessments and training appears nowhere else. Once you experience the CRG suite of tools, you will understand how useful these assessments can be to you and your clients.
