"I'm continually amazed at how often Peter and Claire come up in daily discussions here at the Tax Appeals Tribunal and in conversations with my former staff at the Assembly.
I am convinced that my decision to ask Peter and Claire to lead our group through the HPM Technology was one of the best I made during my time as Assembly Minority Leader. As time goes on it is obvious that most of those who went through the process have been profoundly affected by the experience. Some have changed their lives completely, others have made less obvious changes, but all have been rewarded with fuller, happier lives or are on the path to achieving such.
Some are vocal about the diiferences in their lives, others are just quietly having more satisfying existences.
One thing is certain, when a group of HPMT veterans' get together, Claire and Peter and some facet or facets of the program is discussed.
Thank you for that and for your friendship."
Charles Nesbitt, President, NY State Tax Appeals Tribunal
"My HPM experience was life-changing. It crystallized for me a number of life lessons that guide me daily, both personally and professionally, and which have served to benefit my family, my co-workers and me. In fact, I firmly believe that this course should be integrated into every level of our children's education, from elementary school right through to post-secondary education, and serve as a core component of parenting classes, as well.
The notion that every endeavor in life should have at its foundation a double bottom line, which includes an intent not only to achieve the stated desired outcome, but also to enhance the well being of the people involved, is a basic tenet of HPM technology that should serve as the guiding principle in all facets of corporate America and everyday human interaction. Based on this principle, HPM technology provides the tools necessary for individuals and businesses to effectively define, plan, execute, implement, and measure any stated desired outcome, while enhancing their personal state of well being in the process. These tools are universal, and when integrated into daily life, lead to immeasurable success, fulfillment and happiness, or SUFUH, as Peter and Claire would say.
The HPM course was thought provoking, interesting and fun; it shattered many of my previously conceived notions and replaced them with a positive, life affirming and inspirational outlook on life. For that, I will be forever grateful."
J. McDonnell Counsel to President, NY State Tax Appeals Tribunal
"When I first enrolled in the HPMT program, I was told by someone who had previously taken part in it, and whose opinion I respect, that HPMT would change my life. Admittedly, I was skeptical. I am skeptical no more.
My professional and, perhaps more significantly for me, my personal life have been enriched to a level beyond my greatest expectations. What HPMT has done for me is to make the intangible - tangible. By equipping me with the necessary tools, HPMT allowed me to take professional and personal "desired outcomes" (most people call them goals) and make the path to them real. This is my sincere and heartfelt testimonial.
I would recommend taking the HPMT path to anyone who has a desire to make his or her life better. It's that simple."
George Cannon, Director of Administration, The New York State Tax Appeals Tribunal
"It's a way to get excellent output and yet not go through the trauma of cold cocking people all the time. I'm getting equal or better results with less trauma and discord. The quality of life is much better. I've gotten every vice-president and even the president himself to look upon the facilities organization as a well-run, high producing organization. I want to make hard choices, but not have to look at the bones behind me. This system has shown me a way to do that."
Bill Daigneau, VP, University of Texas, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, excerpt from Fast Company article
"I have an undergraduate degree in Organizational Development and a graduate degree in Management. I spent 24 years in the army, 13 years in a leadership position in facilities at Georgetown University and here. I only tell you this because I have been exposed to this kind of thing for years. In the Army, you're either fighting a war or training. They take training very, very seriously. So all in all, I think I know a little about what it takes to succeed. This material, in my opinion, is perhaps the most comprehensive treatment of management that I have ever seen.
If you are saying,? I don't have the time for this, I'm saying you don't have time not to do this. You will take with you things that will be valuable for you and to you for the rest of your life."
Richard Pifer, V.P. Facilities and Site Services, University of Rochester to his senior management team.
"Peter and Claire have tapped into a code that can provide a clear understanding of why stress, misunderstanding and chaos are present in our business and personal lives. More importantly, they are able to provide the practical tools to identify and resolve these situations."
Vern DeWitt, President, Webster Plastics
"I used to think I had to take on the responsibility for every issue that crossed my path. Now I truly focus on the highest priority items and direct my time to maximize results. Every day I use the "tool bag" that Peter and Claire gave to me to better manage both my work and personal life. How many training courses have you taken where you can make that statement 3 years after you've taken it?
John Shorkey, Information Systems Manager, Eastman Kodak
One year after going through the High Achiever Process, Walter C. (Terry) Newcomb,CFO of a Rochester architectural firm: "I have watched highly challenged work teams come together and achieve never before dreamed of performance levels under Claire and Peter's careful mentoring, significantly changing the lives and work habits of each participant in the process."
Ten Years later as a Consultant and partner in JC Jones & Associates, LLC, Turn around Company of the year, Terry says: "I use the HPM Technology literally everyday in my work and personal life. With it I can knock down walls and go through doors I could not otherwise have even seen as open."
"My DPP experience has been a wonderful realization that we can in fact evolve modern business practices and create an environment much more conducive to achieving higher levels of human performance. Yes, there is hope in changing the way we all go about becoming and carrying out the essence of true personal and group leadership. I find that I can now ignore and look comfortably beyond the near-term shortfall and see clearly the long-term benefit of developing lasting impressions of self-confidence and fulfillment."
Steve Polisoto, VP, New Products/Purchasing, Woodstream, Inc.
"Claire and Peter's technology has helped me to define success in my own terms, and produce it. These are not quick fixes -- learned today and forgotten tomorrow --but real, measurable steps to achieving success and authentic joy in one's life. I am very grateful for everything I've learned from them!"
Elizabeth B. Hearne, Eastman Kodak Co.
" My work with Integrative Performance (Peter & Claire) has been one of the most rewarding and valuable experiences I have ever had. I have much more focus and direction in my life; I am successfully harnessing my own energy and that of that of team members to achieve our full potential. I seem to be able to appreciate to a greater degree the world around me - People, nature, art, business... My world has been made richer, my career is stronger than ever and I am looking forward to growing even more as I use more of the tools and techniques involved. My "Dream List" is materializing almost effortlessly - This is so cool!!" Karen Mesolella, Business Analyst / IS Manager - US&C D&AI
"The DPP and High Achiever?s processes have made a tremendous difference in the quality of my life. They have raised my level of awareness on the balance that is necessary in both my personal and business life to be personally successful. The Tools and the methodology are very powerful. When I feel that certain things are not going well there is always a learning from the HPM Technology that I can apply to get myself back on track. Thanks to Claire and Peter, I have been able to live each day with a real sense of accomplishment, knowing that I have made a difference with the people around me and in reaching the really important goals in my life."
Ann Lafford, Vice President, Vanteon, Inc.
"Claire and Peter have created everyday tools for the successful person who wants to achieve even more. I have been to classes and seminars that make you feel good for the day but aren?t results oriented for the long haul. IPT sends you home with lifestyle changes that will create greater success at work and more happiness both at work and at home. You come away from these sessions knowing you can accomplish anything."
Dave Handsaker, E-Business Director, FCC
"In the twelve years that I have been exposed to and integrated HPM into my life, both personally and professionally, I have experienced life in a way that I never thought was possible. I have realized much success and happiness through the mentoring process that Peter and Claire provide so passionately. The Technology has provided me with the tangible tools for success - most importantly the ability to communicate and truly understand those around me. Without these tools I would not have the confidence or the ability to turn Doing into Achievement."
Denise Pearson, Wegmans Food Markets, Group Manager, Shoppers Club & Business Marketing
"I use HPM Technology because it works. I met Peter and Claire and was first exposed to the technology in 1985 as IT Manager at Eastman Kodak. Over the past 19 years, I sent many people from my staff to IPT, as well as, attending 5 sessions myself. I have seen continual and significant improvements in my professional performance and personal life as a direct result of what I've learned at IPT. Repeated exposure to the material has deepened my understanding and increased the quantity and value of my results. After 21 years, I still apply the technology every day to improve the value of the products that I produce."
