Testimonials: Assessments

“We now use the Abelson DISC tests with every new potential employee or salesperson before we actually hire them. We have discovered through trial and error (the hard way) that not testing them first is never a good thing. Having the test results emailed to us just a few minutes after the test is taken is really nice. I believe anyone who needs to hire and later train employees would greatly benefit from using Dr. Abelson’s services.”  -Russel Shaw, Associate Broker, John Hall & Associates

“Dr. Abelson’s profiles are incredible! His understanding and skill in showing me how to use them make them an even more indispensable tool. It analogues to the strength gained when both the right hand and left hand work well together.” -Troy Gray, President, T. Gray Electric

“Thank you so much for your help with the DISC and Workplace Motivators™ assessments for my team. It was amazing how “on target” the test results were to profiling each team member. I had my entire team share their results with one another and it was incredible to see how enlightened they were. I could see an immediate understanding and appreciation for each other’s differences. I can’t begin to tell you the importance of this valuable service. I know that through your help and the DISC and Workplace Motivator tests, I will be able to build a strong, successful team that values and respects one another” -Cynthia Haskins, Realtor, Keller Williams Realty

The report helped me to better place employees, better understand my people, and to better communicate with them.

"Your concise, clear explanation of how I am able to utilize the information from my Benchmark for Admin. Asst. has been extremely helpful. I have used the DISC for several years, but the missing key was really how to mesh the "perfect" Admin. with my personality style. The specific process applications that you shared with me are a veritable gold mine of information. This will be an invaluable tool for my business growth." - Lisa Herald, ABR, CLHMS, Keller Williams

Testimonials: Teambuilding

“You have a unique capability to combine business and psychology. You understand and know how to deal with difficult business issues.

-Troy Gray, President, T. Gray Electric

“Dr. Abelson, your session was excellent! You gave our staff valuable skills on how to work with top producing agents in a non-threatening, almost matter of fact way, you accomplished a great deal directly and subliminally. It was incredible. You were even able to get the message across to our manager’s issues we have discussed many times, but for which they never seemed to grasp. With you, they finally GOT IT!”
-Mark Wolfe, President, RE/MAX

“The Abelson DISC was very informative. It let our team have better insight into how each team member thinks and what ways we should communicate to them. I think we learned much more about each other in the 3 hours we spent going over the reports than you usually learn in working with someone for a couple of years. I would recommend it to any team that wants to communicate better with each other.”
-Laura Swearingen, Keller Williams Realty

"Michael, I am very grateful and appreciative that you patiently waited to present the results of my students' tests.  As a teacher, it is my interest to understand how I can reach a student and appeal to that student's motivators and emotional disposition.  We were all amazed that so few questions could capture behaviors, learning preferences, interaction tendencies and thinking processes so accurately.  The least among us said the tests were 95% accurate and most said it was 99 to 100% accurate!  Further, the students seemed to appreciate the fact that the tests could assist them in forming groups and teams for study and work, and I couldn't agree more.  Your presentation was valuable to all of us!"
- David Romei, Health Science Center, Texas A&M University
