R.E.S.P.E.C.T. with Dawn Spiller, Jenn Oliver, Carolyn Saint, Ellen Beverly, and Olga Kipnis at the University of Virginia

At the University of Virginia, I interviewed a group of women about the impact of our programs. I spoke with Ellen Beverly, Dawn Spiller, Olga Kipnis, Carolyn Saint, and Jenn Oliver about how the framework of Transactional Competence™ has helped them in their roles within the university.

What might, you wonder, is the most surprising outcome? An environment of respect for different roles and personalities.

While they each experienced more effectiveness and influence, the ability to understand Personality and Transactional Behavior™ has produced a culture of respect both for the simple day-to-day transactions and for the larger transactions that support the aims of the enterprise.

You can hear how Transactional Competence™ provides a framework where each individual can understand their own and others’ roles in the transactions we all serve.

I apologize in advance that some of the audio quality may be difficult—but stick with it, as there are many great lessons here.
