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 2: When 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.
