At a recent point in my career when I felt torn in a few directions, Dave Phillips and the Birkman assessment brought clarity about what would best suit me in my future career choices. After spending 7 years as the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, I was not sure whether I should pursue another CEO role, do board work or coach management teams. The Birkman tool and, more importantly, Dave’s insights were instrumental in helping me see my choices clearly and to help me understand what would be most likely to make me happy. Sure enough, having followed the advice I got and applying the insights I learned in the process, I am probably the happiest I’ve ever been vocationally. I can’t say enough to recommend that everyone should invest the time with Dave to learn about themselves and to ensure that their choices in life are purposeful and enable their happiness.
