Ken speaks to thousands of people every year on the subjects of leadership, personal growth, and communication.

In his training sessions, he presents powerful principles in a more interactive and fun atmosphere. The sessions are designed to be highly informative while still being inspirational and entertaining.

Ken Hartley recently trained our agents and staff in the DISC model of human behavior. Beyond being incredibly knowledgeable and professional, he was extremely well prepared and *highly* entertaining in his delivery. He kept everyone’s attention the entire time.

Several of my agents had gone through DISC before, but they commented that Ken’s presentation helped them understand the concepts in a much deeper and more profound way. His presentation was not only professional and highly informative, and it was also moving. Several agents had huge “a-ha” moments where they not only understood themselves better, but they also had a new understanding of their clients and even their own families. Our team will be able to communicate with each other and their clients in a more effective way than ever before because of Ken’s presentation. I am happy to recommend him to your team.

"The class you gave on the types of people yesterday was tremendous. Our owner, who gives nobody more than 30 minutes, stayed engrossed the entire 3 hours you were here. Even today, people are still talking about how they never understood how easy it could be to communicate with others once you realize their intent and language types. One man even said he immediately applied what he had just learned with his wife last night and it greatly improved their communication. You have a gift in dealing with people, and I believe God has you exactly where he wants you. Great job Ken!"

We live in a world that says if you can’t see it then it isn’t real. Ken blows that philosophy out of the water visually with some mind-blowing illusions and educationally with some extremely powerful leadership lessons.

Connect with yourself and with others like never before and watch your productivity go through the roof!

The number one thing that holds organizations back is a lack of communication. Everyone is talking and “communicating” but very few people actually connect. Drawing from his two Amazon best-selling books, DISCover Your Team’s Potential, and the Amazon #1 best-seller God-Wired (Ken only uses this book with faith-based organizations) using the DISC model of human behavior, as well as some jaw- dropping illusions, Ken will show everyone how to understand themselves in a way they never have before. But more importantly, he will show everyone how to understand the people who are around them every day and how to connect with them in a meaningful way.

True connection in the workplace is the key to making your productivity soar. Let Ken show you how.
