Type is losing ground in the corporate setting and less than 50% of those who are certified buy Type related materials. As Type Practitioners, we must be dedicated to keeping Type relevant and the “Go To” process. Sharon Lovoy continues to be successful in helping her clients use Type not only in their professional positions, but also as a part of their personal lives. Sharon is a Master Trainer in the Influencer Model from Crucial Learning. Sharon has found a way to combine her knowledge of Type with her knowledge of strategy. She will present a clear case for what we need to do to remain relevant. Additionally, those who attend this interactive session will receive a playbook with clear strategies for making Type ubiquitous. NOTE: Australian contacts for Influencer training will be provided. Sharon is not selling her services.

We know that there are many instruments out there that our clients can select. The big question is, how do we get them to select a Type instrument and make Type a permanent part of their culture? And, how can we get them to book us for return engagements?
Sharon W. Lovoy, SPHR, (ENFP) a former Human Resources Director, who has had a thriving consulting business since 1991, has found ways to encourage her clients to use Type instead of other instruments or, in addition to other instruments. She has discovered many ways to make Type, and her company, part of an organization’s culture including volunteering to extend Type training to the families of those who participate at the company, embedding Type in the organizations’ culture and life.
Sharon believes as Type Practitioners, we all need to be on a mission to make sure that we stay in the conversation and, become an essential part of the conversation. She is happy to share what she has learned and to engage the Type Community in thinking together strategically about how we can gain more ground in the corporate training landscape.
