Do You Work with a Difficult Person?​

With our behavioral questionnaire, just enter the attributes of your challenging person. For instance…

  • Are they aloof?  Argumentative?  Meandering?
  • Do they pout?  Procrastinate?  Monopolize discussions?

Indicate their relationship to you–direct report?  Peer?  Boss?  Customer?

We’ll send you a report showing where they fall on our Q4 Model, along with several suggested actions you can take to be more effective with them.

Learning the Q4 Dimensional Model​

The Q4 Dimensional Model of Behavior is a wonderful leadership resource.  Developed by our founders, Dr. Robert Lefton & Dr. Victor Buzzotta, it is easy to understand. It deals with observable behavior, so you don’t have play armchair psychologist. It provides a common language for an organization to help get everyone marching in the same direction.  While simple, there is a lot of depth and application to it.
