Videos: Business Applications of LAB Profile

You might be wondering what is LAB Profile?

The Language And Behavior Profile is a method for knowing what makes a person 'tick' based on how they talk.

Now, this is not like those profilers from the FBI. This is not about psychology and does not require advanced degrees. It is a practical method for finding the hidden meanings in what people say.

These hidden meanings let you accurately predict what a person will do in given situations. Watch…

Invisible Messengers (or A Medicine Called Forgiveness)

The two year long battle between my oldest brother and me ended just in time for us to spend the last six months of his life as friends - and in time for me to learn a rather startling lesson from him.

I suppose siblings need to fight among themselves in order to gain strength and adequate skills to survive in the external world, much as bear cubs need to fight among themselves to prepare them for their world.

But I'm happy that my brother and I got…

Can Profiling Help You Business?

Profiling has a bad name.

I started officially profiling in 1980, in a project with Southwest Airlines.

The Chairman at SWA wanted his airline to be the lowest complaint-ratio airline in the USA. They had been improving their recruiting and training focusing on reducing customer complaints.…

If You're #108 & Everyone Else is #180.

There are 360 degrees in a circle. If YOU are oriented towards degree #108 and everyone else is oriented toward #180, they can think you're crazy even while you're true to your orientation.

TLS Continuum Part 80: Don't Ask. Don't Tell

This blog post does not refer to the former government policy regarding sexual orientation in the military. Rather this refers to a vital part of the TLS Continuum and the voice of the customer. We can’t improve our processes without the input from our customers. However it does no good for you to ask the customer what keeps them up at night if you are not going to follow through on resolving those concerns.

Let me give you an example.  We recently had a problem with our 43inch TV and…

A Fighting Spirit (or Where's The Quality Care In Rushing The Dying Into Eternity?)

The social worker said to me "It would be nice if she could just let go."

She said this - with the best of intentions - in reference to my mother who has been struggling with multiple myeloma since being diagnosed with it eight years ago.

Ordinarily this statement would not have caught my attention except that I had recently cautioned a friend about her penchant to rush through traffic.

We rush, we rush, we rush! We…

And Suppose An Optimist Had A Catastrophic Failure? What Then?

It took inordinate optimism to build each of NASA's Space Shuttles.

It took science, planning, thought, and tons and tons of money. (It would have taken even more money had there been less optimism... think about it...)

Yet, we know all too well that in spite of all that boundless optimism, world-class scientific knowledge in abundance, decades of precise, organized planning, supreme team work, and in-depth thought of the deepest possible kind, there are catastrophes in…
