A: I have used Jay's MRI on myself and two potential employees. I hired one of the two. As I get to know her better I think Jay's assessment of her was right on the money. The lady I didn't hire potentially saved me a lot of grief as there were some underlying issues that I did not pick up on with my initial interview. I went back and spoke with her again using the hiring MRI as a guide and realized very quickly Jay's advise was worth much more than I paid for!

The biggest benefit I've received from working with Jay Henderson is clarity. I've been able to see myself, my staff and my business in ways that cut through to the core issues.

I had some current employees who were good and had potential but rough around the edges. Instead of dismissing them immediately, Jay was able to tell me more about what made them tick and their personality and how to deal with it instead of letting them go since they were a valuable asset. I learned quite a bit about myself and my employees which enabled us to work together better.

I love how his tool compliments our screening and hiring process. We're able to find out how a candidate will fit into our company culture and how well they will interact with existing employees.

Jay understands more about human potential than any person I've ever met... God put him on the Earth to teach and coach people about becoming their best selves! Above all else, he has helped me professionally see my blind spots- those places where my natural biases take over and blind my decision-making ability. Having Jay as a coach is like having eyes in the back of your head. He helps you see the whole view of yourself and your business...that's priceless!

The Hiring MRI has become a part of our hiring process. We've hired 35 people in the last 16 months and every final candidate has taken the profile. It is used as part of the final selection process. After they are selected, the profile is a part of where we put them in the organization.

Jay has helped me in making sound hiring recommendations; when we choose to hire a candidate, Jay has also given me feedback that allows me to coach managers on how that individual can best be managed.

Jay has helped me tailor my management style with each employee. It has taken the guessing out of the "How do I handle this employee and this situation." I feel much more prepared for how to discuss things with new employees.

He has offered me a way to further evaluate a potential employee and also to better understand the employees I hire (i.e. what motivates them, how can we avoid miscommunication, etc).

Jay has helped me in understanding the needs, wants and attitudes of associate doctors applying for a job. This has kept me from making a blatant mistake.

Jay has helped us better understand how to get the best out of our top performers. Everyone has a different motivation that drives them and you can really get the best out of someone if you approach them the right way.
