Of special interest to Consultants Using the Hartman Value Profile (HVP) in their work, this presentation will help them and everyone:

  • Learn the meaning of  "good," and gain a deeper understanding of three key components in Hartmanian Axiology--systemic, extrinsic, and intrinsic values, and how they make up the HVP.
  • Learn how to become better judges of what we value, how we value, how to identify the "good-making components" of values, how to combine values, and how to get our value priorities straight.
  • Expand your ability, if a consultant, to talk to your clients about all such things and thus help them with their own value strengths and weaknesses, as well as with values in their businesses.
  • Take advantage of this exceptional opportunity to meet, interact with, and learn from one of Hartman's own colleagues, who is still here to share his knowledge.
