“For businesses to grow, they need to constantly embrace and enrich their unique human capital circumstances. The “character-based” MERIT Integrated can help any firm with their business growth challenges, especially related to talent acquisition, talent development, succession planning, and culture shaping. Therefore, I suggest any firm could benefit from their product or service offerings.”

“Our company mission and culture depends substantially on our ability to foster and reward a common language around strong character. The Character-Driven Leadership program has given our 250 Managers the tracks to run on in terms of their personal and professional growth. It has also equipped them with the tools to mentor our employees and leverage this positive character-focus into a competitive advantage.”

“The Character-Driven Leadership program has challenged me to reevaluate my personal habits (strengths and soft spots) in order to maximize my own personal leadership potential. This self-discovery process has been instrumental in unleashing me to my purpose of influencing and impacting generations to impact generations. As an educator and life/leadership coach, the principles of Character-Driven Leadership have been instrumental in equipping and empowering me to be a transformational change-agent.”

“The MERIT Profile™ along with the MERIT Culture CQ™ can make all the difference in making a good hiring decision. We recently established a baseline with our existing staff, which very clearly defined our current character competencies and behaviors. The MERIT Profile Development reports have helped us enhance our existing individual development plans for each staff member. This information also gave me the knowledge that I needed to identify what strengths we should be looking for in applicants. It was remarkable how accurately the profiles described each staff member – according to them. And it was just as remarkable how each recruitment report predicted the responses to our interview questions.
The MERIT Profile Recruitment reports for the applicants provided important context for the interview questions. Per our baseline we selected four of the ten MAXIMIZERS™ Principles to focus on. Specific questions were provided for each applicant based on his or her survey answers. These questions caused applicants to describe themselves at a much deeper level than the sometimes “surface” answers that are given. We knew more about the applicants going into the interviews than they probably knew about themselves. This actually raised our expectations and assisted in finding the person with the strengths that we need. The profiles were “spot on” for all applicants.
I have used this process to hire several team members and utilized the MERIT Profile information for team building and coaching. Based on my experiences with the MERIT Profiling system I could never return to the more traditional hiring methods that I used in the past.”

“As a consultant who works with family-owned businesses and high net worth families, hiring someone of solid character and who shares common core values is critical. I have been using the MERIT Profile for the past four years to assist my clients in employee selection for their businesses and family offices and I’ve been extremely pleased with the results. We have found the interview questions suggested within the Recruitment Report to be especially helpful in follow-up interviews for final candidates, and when the hire is made, the character and behavioral profile given by the MERIT Profile Development Report is consistent with who the person ‘really is’. The MERIT Profile is an easy-to-use, accurate and helpful tool in getting to know the deeper characteristics that impact how an individual functions in the workplace.”

“I found the MERIT Profile to be a very valuable tool both personally and professionally. Not only did it help me identify areas of growth in my own path to personal development, this information helped me become a better manager and “maximizer of people”. I would highly recommend this assessment and training to any organization that truly understands that people will always be your most valuable resource.”

Taking the MERIT Profile and reading the Achieving Authentic Success book, I now have a well defined plan as to what to do with this information. The book deals with many of the healthy habits, positive thinking and goal developing ideas that I’ve been taught over the years; but there is something strangely powerful about the way it’s presented, so systematically and defined so clearly. All the components are put together in such a tangible way; with simple, practical exercises to promote deliberate growth. I feel like now, I not only know ‘who I am’ but have a map to get to the place of ‘who I want to be’.

I would highly recommend the use of MERIT Profile and the MERIT Integrated Solutions training . As a lifelong sales manager/sales coach in a most competitive field, I have had the opportunity to attend and implement many sales and performance enhancing programs from Dale Carnegie to Tony Robbins, and countless more in between. I have found the MERIT Integrated Solutions program to be the most comprehensive program I have ever participated in and the follow on training is delivered with professionalism and uncompromising integrity. This is the first program that assesses the participants’ strengths and areas of improvement, rather than the “one size fits all” programs that I have seen in the past. The assessment and training is based on principles I can believe in, rather than approaches that seem less authentic and real. I have also begun to implement these principles and character traits in my youth football coaching seminars (for age 10 to adults). If you are an organization looking for transformational results rather than the quick fix, I highly recommend this integrated solution.

I have been searching for many years for a quantifiable and accurate way to help business and organizations to raise the standards and to somehow help to position people in the best positions to increase profitability and relationships. After an exhaustive search and many attempts to cobble pieces together it was to my delight that I discovered the MERIT Profile™. My first impression was that this was just another piece of our puzzle. I was wrong to assume that. I see it as the engine that is able to really drive organizations and business concerns to optimal performance.

“I have been debriefing and discussing individual MERIT Profile™ results with clients for almost a year. Both me and my clients are regularly astounded with the accuracy in which they describe both personal character and behavioural traits. They are incredibly helpful in setting the stage for the journey into ongoing personal and professional growth.”

“I have heard many people speak with such delight that there are now new words to describe something so important to us all, but so elusive in definition, character. The MAXIMIZERS™ character principles bring new life, energy and hope into the process of personal and professional leadership development.”
