Testimonials

Ben encouraged a warm, supportive atmosphere for us to investigate our own temperament types and compare them with others. The collaborative workshop has given me a whole new way of looking at things and understanding why some people approach things in such different ways to me. Everyday occurrences keep making me stop and go "Oh! That's what's going on!"

Ben delivered a keynote speech at a recent UK tech comm conference and it was a revelation. Not only to find a self-confessed introvert happily talking to a huge room of people, but also to learn more about the differences between introvert and extrovert natures. I feel I have a better understanding of my own place on the scale and of how I can more usefully interpret specific behaviours that I previously saw as character flaws. It has also made me more tolerant of others’ behaviour when it differs from my own. Thanks Ben!

The Introverted Leadership mentoring program has helped me articulate who I am through the use of personality testing and what I want through discussion and exploration. Ben and I have studied methods of creativity and new thinking styles for me to use in my work as a designer. As an introvert, I tend to show my skills rather than talk about them. Because I don’t generally discuss my work, I manage to undervalue myself regularly. Ben sensed that about me and his honest, valuable feedback has increased my confidence. His intuition has helped me learn more about myself, and we have consistently turned those insights into actions.

I basked in being part of an introvert majority for once while attending Ben's Temperament-based Strategies for Excelling in the Workplace workshop at a recent technical communication conference. His approach was humorous, informative, and engaging and I appreciated his incorporation of group discussion and creative assignments.

( Summit Workshop Attendee )

Ben's perspective and advice have encouraged me to think outside the box and try new things. I have gained a greater sense of self awareness and understanding, which has empowered me to embrace my introversion, identify my strengths, and actively work to improve my skills! My mentorship with Ben has benefited me immensely, both in my professional and personal life.
