Topic 1: Welcome Dr. Clifford Hurst; Talk About Robert S. Hartman’s Work, How You Came Across It and Why You Are Committed to Sharing it With Others:
- In 2002, TTI introduced me to the Hartman Value Profile, the assessment was very accurate.
- When I started using the Hartman Value Profile, I thought it was magic, it's like the mass just melted away and people got very real, very quickly.
- I started using the assessment but did not know where the information came from, I thought, “I better learn more about where this came from.”
- I wanted to become a more theoretically grounded consultant.
- Hartman was to me a polymath, someone who knows a whole lot about a lot of things. And I look back at my own career and I look at a lot of people who are using the instrument as consultants. If the only thing you're doing is the instrument, you're leaving a lot of richness off the table because Hartman was so thoughtful about so many different things that the theory of Formal Axiology is much richer than the instrument itself.
- The stuff started by Robert S. Hartman in 1958 has created $7 trillion of personal wealth in America, and most people don't know that came from Hartman.

Topic 2: How Would You Explain to Someone How this Science Lends Itself to so Many Disciplines?:
- It is the Science of Value of Morals.
- Let's say a business is only about making money, but it should be about the human good, and the good of everyone involved in that, the science reframes a lot.
- Book: From the Neck Up by Stephen Byrum.
- Today's young people more than anything else don't want just a job when they graduate, they want to find meaning in their own lives and they want to make a difference in the world through their work. I believe Hartman's theory allows us to honor that ambition.
- Balance of systemic, extrinsic and intrinsic.
- Hartman’s theory provides a balanced perspective to your cognitive habits and provides a moral foundation to what we ought to be doing in the world.

Topic 3: Two gifts that the Hartman Value Profile Gives People:
- One: It gives you the ability to bring to conscious awareness all patterns that you've had held subconsciously, these things that we don't know about how we think.
- What are your habitual realities? Without the Hartman Value Profile, we don't know what our habitual thought patterns are.
- Two: It brings to conscious awareness are called cognitive horizons, how far can you think, what are the limits of your cognitive processes? It gives us a language with which to understand it.
- All understanding is linguistic; we can't process stuff if we don't have a language with which to process it.

Topic 4: Other Ways Hartman’s Work Has Impacted Your Life:
- Hartman, “There are only four steps to a successful life. Number one, know yourself. Two, choose yourself. Three, grow yourself. And four, give yourself to something greater than you.”
- My mission is to help my students to know themselves, choose themselves and give yourself to something greater than you.
