Topic 1: Welcome Rick Bowers; How You Became Aware of Robert S. Hartman's Work; Why Did You Decide That This Is a Tool You're Interested in Learning More About and Bringing It to People; Why Have You Continued to Stay Committed to It. 

  • It is getting inside someone's head, understanding how they think, and people are so complex that you just can't look at a person from just DISC or just from a couple assessments, you really have to have this complete picture of the individual and understand what's going on and where are their filters, what's going on in their brain.
  •  The Hartman tools give us the ability to understand how people look at the world and how they look at themselves.      
  • It is tough to look and assess a person without looking at everything, including the Axiology, Hartman’s work.

Topic 2When You Use the Tool, How Have You Used it Within the Organization? How is It Used Across the Country? Across the World.

  • We use it with every internal hire.
  • When we're bringing in Chief Marketing Officers and VPs of people, different people at that level, you really have to truly understand how they think.
  • World view vs. Internal view.
  • Business is off a little bit this year, but the training and the development business is up because organizations have been hiring people without assessments over the last 12 months because they needed a person, and now they're having problems within the organization because they didn't make that connection, they did not use Acumen.
  • If you don't match the person to the job, you're going to have issues as you go forward.
