"I had the opportunity to apply Personality Poker during an off-site as part of a Team Building event. In a quick 60 minutes, I saw the team not only recognize styles they like the least, they identified how they can leverage those traits to help them the most! The event created a buzz that continued well past the event, A month later, I continue to see evidence that the awareness the game fosters really 'stuck.'"
-Michele Egger, Innovation Operations, Chevron
"Personality Poker is a fun and engaging approach to both personal assessment and understanding team dynamics. This approach helped me recognize how my own problem-solving approach may complement (or clash) with other team members, and gave me useful insights into future team development."
-Ben Cowles, P&C Business Insurance Service Operations, The Hartford Financial Services Group, Inc.
"I thought I'd seen just about every profiling tool there was. Until now, those I've seen all required you to fill out questionnaires that are boring and can lead to biased answers. But Personality Poker got to the desired endpoint more quickly, more engagingly, and with less bias than any of these."
-Rob, S., Innovation Champion and Facilitator, R&D Division, A Major Pharmaceutical
"If you're looking for an engaging, invigorating and creative way to kick off your conference or meeting, I highly recommend Personality Poker!"

"My experience with group style awareness exercises is that they are like getting five-year-olds to take medicine - unpleasant to administer and having benefits that are little understood by the patients. Personality Poker is actually fun and most important, very thorough in understanding team member styles as well as one's own. The result must be a higher probability of stronger teams with a greater utilization of strengths and acceptance of differences."
-Bruce Harned, President, MarketFit Associates
