By age 30 Scott Schwefel founded what became Minnesota’s largest technology training company, Benchmark Computer Learning, and then sold his stake in that company for more than a million dollars in 2003. His company was named one of the 50 fastest growing private companies in Minnesota in 1997 and 1998, and he was named to Minnesota’s 40 under 40 list of successful top executives in the year 2001.
Scott then founded Insights Twin Cities in 2003, representing Scotland Based Insights Learning & Development in the Twin Cities, which he sold in 2014 for more than a million dollars.
Scott’s unique presentations are all based on his Insights Discovery system that focuses on four different energies: Fiery red, sunshine yellow, cool blue, and earth green. Each color possesses a different energy, or set of personality traits. They each have strengths, weaknesses, and different tendencies.
During a presentation, audiences members become self aware – in a safe and fun environment – while learning why the people in their personal and professional lives do things differently and how to better communicate, get along, and work with them.
The programs bring transformation, not just to someone’s life, but to the life of an organization.
Communicate in Full Color: Teamwork
Scott works with team members to deliver new communications strategies that create high performance teams, using the Insights Discovery System. Team members that understand themselves and each other perform at higher levels, and every team Scott works with leaves with the tools and knowledge they need to deliver better results.
Communicate in Full Color: Sales and Customer Satisfaction
Perfecting your “Art of Selling” starts with self-awareness. The single main reason a sale falls through is because most sales training does not take individual strengths and weaknesses into account. Understanding the individual is as important as the process.
Whether you are face to face with a customer or on the telephone with a potential prospect, understanding how you communicate will make all the difference and help close the sale. Insights Discovery programs teach salespeople how to recognize type, and truly understand how to develop lasting and productive client relationships.
Communicate in Full Color: Leadership
Being self-aware, and understanding your impact on others is how you become a successful leader. Thousands of leaders in the world’s best companies rely on Insights Discovery to understand themselves and others.
In Scott’s programs, leaders understand how each of the Insights Discovery Color Energies are Motivated, and learn to connect with their teams, and cultivate a positive and effective work environment. It all starts with self-awareness, and Insights Discovery leadership programs are guaranteed to get you there.
