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 2How 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.
