Leading the Way is a free ezine published by CRG Consulting Resource Group International, Inc. Copyright 2008.


Leading the Way - that is what we trust Consulting Resource Group’s Associates' & HR Professionals' newsletter will be to you - a place where you can come and gather good ideas and information so you can increase your effectiveness with your clients in a professional manner.

We also want to keep it as simple as possible so that you will want to use this tool. We do not want to inundate you with unnecessary emails, so we are only coming to you monthly. This is not some philosophical piece waxing on about learning-style theory. Rather, it is a hands-on newsletter containing useful ideas and information that will help you grow your business with style.

In each issue we will update you with what is new from CRG, we will spotlight one of our products, we will highlight one or more of our Associates, and we will provide you with some housekeeping news.

2. Gate Entrance (A tool to take on your journey)


It is always interesting to meet Associates who have been using one or two of our tools for years, only for them to discover that CRG is really a family of over 18 tools! From personality to sales to values to leadership to learning to self-worth to stress to entrepreneurial to job style, CRG has an assessment tool that you can use in most any setting.

The foundation of many of our tools is the Personal Style Indicator (PSI) which is a scientifically developed, self-administered, and self-scoring learning and communication instrument. It is not a test that can be passed or failed.

The PSI can assist you to:

  • Identify your basic personal style of responding to people and to tasks.
  • Gain self-understanding and self-acceptance and greater understanding and acceptance of others.
  • Identify the consequences of your interpersonal style when relating with others.
  • Identify your typical response to stress and pressure and learn how to compensate for your weaknesses.
  • Better understand the style tendencies of others and learn to interact with them more effectively.
  • Increase harmony and productivity by sharing a common language when talking with others.
  • Gain understanding of human behavior which you may use to ease tension and promote harmony in relationships.
  • Develop a plan to increase your style flexibility and effectiveness in relation to tasks and your interaction with others.
  • Facilitate team development through the careful assessment of team member strengths.

Dr. Terry Anderson has just updated a very helpful tool entitled, “Learning Friendly Tools for the New Millennium”. If you are interested in a copy, email Neal at and he will send you the confidential PDF.

3. On the Path (Someone out there who is doing it)


Maureen Reilly is president of Pebble Hill Enterprises and has been an Associate with CRG for over 14 years. Maureen has been using our Personal Style Indicator For Learners (PSI-L) in an MBA program she is teaching at Royal Roads University in Victoria, BC.

Many of her students are executives who have not been in school for a number of years. Prior to starting their MBA they are required to complete the PSI for Learners. This helps Maureen and the other instructors design their programs based around how participants like to learn.

Maureen says, “your true understanding of what individuals and organizations are faced with in these challenging times needs to be successfully translated into specific stages and steps for their developmental learning and skills training. With the PSI-L and PSI-EL, you have a comprehensive package that promotes the transfer of new skills down through all levels of learning styles - and that helps sustain their training initiative.”

4. Back Home (Clean-up time)


Protect your Associate standing! Over the last few weeks we have discovered a number of different copyright infringements taking place in regards to our assessments. Please be aware that your Associate Agreement requires you to immediately report any copyright infringement that you become aware of. Failure to immediately report knowledge of such copyright infringements can result in you losing your Associate status. While you could still use our tools you would not be eligible for the Associate rates and bonuses. Copyright infringement not only affects CRG negatively, but it also is taking income away from you - our Associates. Please help us keep this a level playing field for all. CRG is proactively pursuing and prosecuting copyright offenders so that we all can expand our businesses.
