Almost all reactions and decisions are caused by and/or
based on PERCEPTION.
What ever someone’s perception is of you, you earned it.
Most business and personal decisions are based on
perception.
You never get a second chance to make a first impression.
Relationships are the key to success, happiness, fulfillment,
raising children, happy marriage, etc.

Principle of Perception
“We are measured:
a. Not by what we are,
but by the perception of what we seem to be;
b. Not by what we say,
but how we are heard;
c. Not by what we do,
but how we appear to do it. “
Personnel Decision Inc., MN, 1991

Teams Are Most Successful When:
Each member has adequate knowledge of:
“Personality Traits” of Self and Team Members”.
Each member has some training how to “Interact” with each
of the “Personality Traits” Or “Behavioral Types”.
Each member understands his/her TOP FIVE STRENGTHS
and those of his/her teammates.
Then, members can be positioned to optimize performance
via skill set and motivation.
Now let’s look at a method that is most commonly used to

So, when you’re at the end of your life
here on earth, what will be your:
Accomplishments vs. Regrets?
Materials or Relationships?
So, thanks for listening and here’s my parting
thought for you to ponder………………………
“Life is usually shorter than you expected, and
seldom ends the way you planned it. And, the true
quality of life as all about the relationships you have.
So make every day your MASTER PIECE.”
