We call him "The Bulldozer" because he is an irresistible force that nothing and no one can resist. Bob's unique approach to dealing with an irate customer (love them to death) is not what you'd expect from a former helicopter pilot in Vietnam.
In fact, Bob's leadership and extraordinary classroom skills draw on over two decades experience as a career military officer, the U.S. Army's Organizational Leadership and TQM Programs for Executives, experience as a DDI Certified Master Assessor, and graduate research on the MBTI® and Situational Leadership. He has designed and managed leadership assessment and development programs for hundreds of army officers and qualified hundreds of Type Resources clients to use type theory. Bob is the best kind of teacher, the kind who models the lesson. Bob models for us how to get to know our shadow side and take responsibility for it. He is the reason the rest of us are working for TR.

Amy is the opposite of the autocrat. Participative democracy is her dominant mode and she pulls order out of chaos with charm and grace. With a degree in counseling psychology, Amy has spent years applying personality type in psychological settings to enrich clients' personal and professional lives. Her every sentence is a lesson in type theory. If someone suggests we take a new perspective on a problem, she responds, "You're right, we should be using Introverted Thinking."
Amy has a hand in everything: designing workshops, facilitating programs, marketing, and developing products, such as the Function-Archetype Decoder. Amy writes articles on type and the eight mental processes and welcomes suggestions for topics. With an awareness of the ever-growing distance between personality type theory and the field of psychology, her long-term mission is to close the existing gap and to dispel the myths on both sides.
