Weeks after Barbara’s talk, my students continued to report how helpful they found the concepts she had taught them. These women managers worked in some high-stress environments — the U.S. Postal Service, BART, and AC Transit, to name a few. It was very gratifying to hear them tell how they had learned to recognize and turn around negative behavior. One student said, “I never realized what a problem the hoarding of information is in my office. Now that I know I can help people be more positive just by keeping them informed, we’re getting a lot more done.” I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Barbara as a trainer or consultant in any business, government or nonprofit environment. – C.J.

When I was hired, AdvisorTeam (subsequently absorbed into Keirsey.com) had just begun to turn a profit from its online version of the Keirsey Temperament Sorter, a personality profiling instrument similar to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. These personality tests are popular with job seekers, career counselors, and professionals, so the company decided to develop a career-focused report to capitalize further on David Keirsey’s intellectual property.
Working with a designer, I developed the modular structure and wrote the copy for the 16 versions of the Career Temperament Report, which has been sold online continuously for more than 15 years. Keirsey.com company has since produced several new reports using the template I devised.
