Every PRINT® exhibits Best Self and Shadow behaviour. The goal of the Why of you program is to teach people how to diminish the frequency of Shadow behavior and increase the presence of Best Self. Shadow is people’s automatic response to the stressors in their lives. It may be more automatic for some people to be in Best Self or Shadow than others. A person’s professional and personal environment plays a role, as well as their level of self-awareness. Studies have shown there is a positive correlation between Best Self and performance.
Stephen Hanman is a licensed practitioner/coach in The Why of you Powered by PRINT®, a breakthrough model of human motivation and behaviour that was developed by The Paul Hertz Group. The approach is used to enhance understanding of the way people react and how they relate by explaining the “why” behind their behaviour – why people act as they do, why they make certain choices, why they are attracted to certain things and why they function better in certain situations than others.
I am certified to use and analyze the Paul Hertz Group’s PRINT® Survey, a 10-15 minute, statistically validated, highly accurate, and dynamic online instrument as part of my coaching process (dynamic meaning that different questions come up based on how previous ones were answered, so people take different surveys). The instrument helps me uncover an individual’s core motivators and the behaviors that reflect both their Best Self and their potential Shadow. This information helps me work in partnership with individuals to efficiently accomplish goals and generate strategies to yield desired results. Knowing “why” accelerates successful growth and transformation. PRINT® provides this vital information.
Development based coaching is at the core of what I do, working with a holistic view of the human being who thinks [head], feels [heart] and takes action [hands]. Deploying discretionary effort is core.
High performing teams have high trust levels – developing and nurturing this trust is what I can assist you with. Everybody wins in this environment. It creates an upward spiral of performance.
