Rave reviews for Melba and the use of DISC in a workshop held at Cherry Valley Music, led by partners Dr. Charles Stier and Molly Stier:
"...We were 100% blown away by the depth of insights and the opportunity for the opening of other communication possibilities with ourselves and with others. Melba was fantastic in presenting, organizing, and above all, controlling this occasionally rambunctious and spirited group.
Literally overnight, we have all experienced a vast and varied opening and understanding of our personal behaviors and motivators. Many of the deep personal struggles that we each possess have been clearly illuminated and instantly unlocked by this process.
If you have a true desire to really understand yourself, your company, group, team, school, family or marriage, this DISC Assessment could be called "What Makes Me (And Others) Tick". It is an absolute MUST...."

Achieving Manager Study
The Achieving Manager Study - Breakthrough Research
“If we know one thing today…it is most managers are made, not born…there has to be a systematic work on the supply, the development, and the skills of tomorrow’s management…it cannot be left to chance.”
- Peter F. Drucker
The Achieving Manager study is based in solid science and shows definitively the common behavioral characteristics that the top achieving leaders employ to set themselves apart from their lesser achieving colleagues. These leaders were most highly valued by their respective companies and were promoted faster and given the most responsibility for managing their organization's assets and people.
Research suggests that 95% - 97% of the people in the world do NOT have written goals and fail, while 3-5% have written goals and succeed
Goal Setting is a powerful way to build self-confidence and self-esteem
Fear of Losing - Many people do not set goals because they are afraid they will be criticized for not reaching them
Fear of Winning - Odd as it may seem, some people do not set goals because they fear success
"I find it fascinating that most people plan their vacations with better care than they plan their lives. Perhaps it's because escape is easier than change" - Jim Rohn
Visioneering Your Future
Listen to Edwards Holliday on BlogTalkRadio hosted by The Copernicus Institute talk about how you can see the future, you can manifest your vision, and you can achieve your priorities. Edwards shares the powerful process and technology of the Personal Vision Letter, an exercise that he recommends as the first step in your annual strategic planning process. Edwards will show you how to facilitate yourself into a clearly defined story of your upcoming year (the show was recorded 11/2010 to create 2011), from the resulting outcomes back to the present, and how to avoid the pitfalls and limitations of conventional goal setting practices.Click here to listen to the show.
