Getting results where traditional management programs have failed.
Huey has been one of the best programs we’ve ever implemented. It offers a fun non-threatening way to communicate with each other when challenges present themselves. It is a constant reminder that we are in control of our happiness, our relationships and our paycheck.
I was skeptical. We’ve gone through so many programs…and I thought this was going to be just another program that classified people, but people here enjoyed it and laughed a lot! They have been through so many programs that they have forgotten about until we did Huey. I think Huey does a great job of emphasizing that everyone has traits that are different from one another, yet all these traits are good. That was impressive. Now 85 people feel good about themselves, feel good about their job and feel good about the people they work with. Positive attitude is exactly right!
High performance teams have become and integral part of today’s successful business organization. The Huey exercises have provided our steering team a great tool than enables us to work effectively in a team environment. Huey heightens cooperation and understanding, which gives our teams the synergy they need to succeed.
A big part of sales is the delivery of the message. If the client does not like the delivery, they don’t accept the message. Although we cannot change who we are and although it may be difficult, we can adapt to other’s style and adjust our presentation. We are who we are and if we can recognize who other people are, the communication is clearer. If we are not communicating, they are not buying. I can adjust the message and decrease the communication gap with the simple principles of Huey.
I want you to know how much I appreciate having The Huey Systems program implemented here at Trans Mail with our production people. Five good things have come out of it: 1 Our production people are looking at their own behavior first, instead of looking to blame other people. 2 There’s been a noticeable and welcome decrease in tension between personalities and especially between myself and the owner. I think it’s conservative to say this program has cut tension in half. 3 Since finishing the fourth phase of the program, I see people more willing to open up and communicate about sensitive work issues instead of letting them boil under the surface. 4 I understand my boss’s flag which helps reduce the second guessing as to what he wants, which was stressful for me personally. 5 Because of the reduced tension, all of us are not wasting time on negative arguments, back biting and gossip that’s so typical in work setting. What a relief. I look forward to coming to work even more. Thank you again!
After taking our entire management group through phase 1 of The Huey Systems, it has identified several traits in myself that I either didn’t understand in the past or was unaware of the impact on others around me. The largest personal impact was to better understand how people with different personality traits respond to situations differently. This eases a lot of tension in our organization. The concept of Huey being built on positive traits also minimizes people feeling that their PVP traits are inferior to, or undervalued by others. As I mentioned in our phone call, Sherry and I worked our three children through development of their own PVPs. It created a great environment for discussion. The PVP has also generated real thought within myself on why I have reacted to situations through the years the way I did. This was very helpful. Over all, it has been a good experience for me personally.
