The Confident Christian

The word used to refer to the connection between psycho (the mind) and soma (the body). This book is based on a third and most important ingredient to personal wholeness and success. That ingredient is the Spirit. The Spirit is what glues the mind and body together. Without a Spiritual dimension a person is missing a vital component to their personal development.

The Confident Christian, originally published in 1984 is now in its second printing! Thousands of people have enjoyed the thoughtful insights provided in this book. Written by G. Dan Lumpkin and his friend and mentor Nonie S. Green, The Confident Christian examines the ingredients necessary for a balanced life in all three dimensions. A professional walk requires a "calling". A strong motivational movement inside us all that motivates us to achieve professional success. At the heart of every professional success is a personal "calling" to serve and to leave the world in a little better condition that it was when we found it. Answering such a call takes courage, to stand up as a true believer, determination to put the most important relationship in your life at the top of the heap and confidence that your life is not accidental but is truly purposeful. Thousands have found this book practical, helpful and insightful. It is insight into the core philosophy of Dan and Nonie as they have addressed personal and professional issues of thousands of people around the world. You will find it helpful too.

Instruments and Surveys:

Workplace Norms Evaluation Survey

A norm is to a group as a habit is to an individual. This survey instrument includes over 80 questions that will allow your people to provide valuable insight into the current workplace norms in your company or organization.

The use of the workplace norms survey is vital in organizations experiencing the stress of change and desiring to improve the current situation of their people. Feedback is provided which ranks the most important issues in the workplace from those that need immediate attention to those that are clear strengths of the organization. Designed by G. Dan Lumpkin and used by thousands, this instrument has been the foundational first step in positive culture change.

Assertiveness is the degree to which others perceive you to "get your way" by asking or telling. Responsiveness is the degree to which others perceive you to manage emotions by controlling them or showing them.

These dimensions of behavior go together to make your personal style.

Customer Perception Surveys

We have found there are certain factors that are critical to your success with your particular customers.  An essential step in developing a truly "customer focused" organization is to monitor front line operations through the eyes of the Customer (or potential Customer).  Much like the electronic navigational device, our C.P.S. or CUSTOMER PERCEPTION SURVEYS show where your Customer satisfaction levels are now and helps guide you where you want to go. 
Our philosophy is to recognize and celebrate the good behavior of your team while identifying situations that need to be corrected.
