"Gayle’s Perceptual Style is Vision..... She perceives the world as a place of infinite possibilities, full of options and opportunities all of which build toward her vision of the future."
"As you can see from our examples, everyone experiences many different attitudes and approaches towards life."
"It is important to note that Perceptual Style is gender neutral – there are just as many Frankies as there are Franks, just as many Bobbies as Bobs, etc."
"People literally perceive the world differently, and this differing perception leads to different conclusions about what is important, how things should be done, and what is the “truth” of any situation."
"It really is the reason behind many disconnects between you and the people in your life. "
"The good news is that when you understand your own Perceptual Style and how that differs from the others, you have the tools to minimize disconnects and maximize understanding and being understood..... and who doesn’t want that?"
.... more importantly this is where the Perceptual Style(PSA), Recognized Strengths Profile(RSP) and the Leadership Strengths Profile(LSP) assessments will help....

Management and Coaching Productivity Tools
One of the biggest challenges in Management and Coaching (as in life) is communicating with people who see the world differently than you do. In business the stakes are high because your team and/or clients’ success depends on your ability to communicate with them on their terms.
As a Manager or Coach, you may have an intuitive grasp that you need to change your approach with certain people—but chances are, more often than not, you’re still failing to connect. It doesn’t have to be this way. Once you understand the way your audience takes in information and what truly motivates them, you can dramatically increase their chances for success simply by adjusting the way you communicate. Learn how to connect with your team or clients as never before . . . More
Be the Leader You Always Wanted to Be
Everyone has the capacity to be an effective leader. There's not one set of traits or behaviors that guarantee success. There is YOUR way to be a leader - building on your natural strengths.
Whether your role at work currently includes leadership or you aspire to be a leader, you are already exercising some of your natural leadership skills in your everyday life. In social situations when you decide when you and your friends will meet for dinner, in family situations when you take on the role of negotiator to resolve conflicts, at work when you step up to initiate change or take responsibility for task completion.
All too often people with great talents miss the mark because they don't recognize and apply their talents to the way they lead. Instead they wrap their dreams in someone else's "guaranteed approach" and get frustrated when it doesn't work for them. Successful Leadership is all about building around your natural strengths as well as your expertise . . . More
