Testimonials

“The Alpha Element Vitality Types are a fresh and very effective set of tools my students use to increase their self-awareness and to analyze how different preferences impact communication with clients and colleagues. Because the Vitality Types are easy to understand and apply, our discussions are insightful and applicable to clinical practice.”
– Marlys Gapstur Sand, MA, OTR/L, Assistant Professor, St. Catherine University

“Alpha Element training provides a powerful framework that is easy to understand, easy to relate with, and easy to put to good, practical use to become a more effective leader and communicator. I have especially benefited from learning how to tap into my hidden resources when my dominant Vitality Type has gotten in the way and prevented me from realizing my full potential.”
– Roger Warehime, General Manager/CEO, Owatonna Public Utilities

“The Alpha Element Program made me aware of my innate leadership style and how I can leverage my strengths within the organization.  This training has helped me become more confident in my role because I can be impulsive and in that mindset I don’t make the best decisions.  The self-leadership skills I developed through this program have helped me to observe my communication and remember to slow down a little bit, reflect and reevaluate.”
– Mandy Mensink Olsen, M.A., Senior Director, Walden University

“Authentic is the word that comes to mind when I compare this assessment with others I am familiar with. This process provides a more authentic and unbiased picture of a person.”
– Sunny Ainley, Associate Dean, Normandale Community College, Center for Applied Learning

“I now have a clear awareness of how my vitality is reflected in my communication style. Awareness of the Vitality Types also has provided techniques for how to listen and connect with my clients in new ways.”
– Cindy Diamond

“The Alpha Element workshop is an outstanding program for building group-awareness and coherence. The curriculum is extraordinary, the whole team was engaged and the conversations were authentic. A number of us found the Alpha Element workshop to be the best teambuilding event we have ever attended. I highly recommend Alpha Element Institute as a resource for talent and team development.”
– Zarir Erani, Chief Information Officer, Hallmark Business Connections

“The value of the Alpha Element Assessment is that it provides a different way of thinking about how people take in information and interact with each other. I think anytime you have self-knowledge you have more resources.  This instrument is helpful to better understand people as well as your own reaction to them and their motivations, so you are not just reacting to their behavior.”
