Video Presentation by Bo Hanson, 4x Olympian and Coaching Consultant

Does Behavioral Profiling label people?

  • Yes, but it is not who you are, it’s how you behave in a specific context
  • People have behavioral patterns and are much more complex than just a D, I, S or C
  • Knowing a persons profile enables you to take advantage of their strengths and be aware of their limitations
