The Peoplemap™ System's simplicity is its elegance. It allowed all of us to take a fresh look at each other and ourselves in a non-threatening environment On top of all of the above, it was an awful lot of fun.
Chris is extremely skilled at understanding human behavior and applies her expertise to her work as a coach, trainer, and speaker. Chris recently completed a coaching assignment for NBT and did an outstanding job.
Dr. Richard Juman consistently approaches new tasks with clarity of thought, rigor, and substantial planning. He is enthusiastic while direct. Richard translates his visions into surmountable action items by bringing disparate parties together to accomplish shared goals.
Your program gave us a useful understanding of our own personality types and how we approach the world, as well as insight into how we might make adjustments when dealing with different personality types. The People Map program has had a meaningful and enduring impact on our organization.
Chris is a true professional. Her trainings are on target for today's diverse workforce. She recently presented two trainings at the college: Leading from the Inside Out and Work-Life Harmony which were both well received by participants.
Christine has been working with members of our Senior Management team primarily as a performance improvement coach... I would highly recommend Christine to any organization who is searching for executive coaching expertise for their enterprise leaders.
As a small company with limited money and time to spend on training our staff, we anguished over whether we should spend precious resources on investments in “soft skills.” We concluded that our culture is our most important asset—and the very hardest thing to maintain as we grow. We were so fortunate to find Chris Allen, who immersed us in a full day of engaging learning about personality styles. Everyone had a great time and learned more about themselves and each other. She gave us a common language to use to talk about conflict and a better understanding of how we can all work together and respect one another. Even the “curmudgeons” among us gave the workshop an excellent rating. We’ve already seen people using their new skills to resolve little conflicts more quickly and teams have been using their new insights about themselves and each other to work together more effectively.
Christine recently presented at our annual Leadership Conference for Women and received rave reviews from those who attended her session on Work-Life Harmony.
Richard is an excellent manager and natural leader. He effortlessly cuts through distraction and keeps the organization focused on the target. He is a consensus builder whose humor and easy style gains cooperation and overcomes resistance.
Dr. Allen delivered the workshop, Creating Life Work-Harmony for our statewide group New York Agri-Women. Instead of a one size fits all approach or a simple prescription for what to do, Dr. Allen encouraged us to think about our work,our families, our values, and personalities; she subsequently led us down a path of developing our own plan for change and for creating our own unique life-work harmony.
Chris conducted several 360 degree evaluations for our leadership team and followed up with individual 1-on-1 coaching sessions. At every step of the way Chris was extremely knowledgable and helpful.
I have used Christine and Insight Business Works twice for pre-employment psychological assessments for key staff hires. Christine is very competent and easy to work with.
Thanks for an amazingly fruitful session with our faculty. Your masterful facilitation helped relieve tensions and provided a safe place for everyone to speak and be heard. The PeopleMap content has provided a common vocabulary for us to help understand each other better. It provides tools to disarm assumptions of motive by providing an understanding that different people perceive the same situations differently, that they interact differently, and that their values are not as shared as one would assume them to be. I believe the school is in a much better place for having worked with you. Thank you!
