“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.”

“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.”

– Elisabeth Reid Holter, M.D., Neurologist & Medical Writer
“My Alpha-Element is Water, while my identical twin brother’s Alpha Element is Fire. There is no doubt that it is a valid reflection of the differences in our personalities.”
