PhD from the University of Southern California in Communication with Business Management. Discovered Hartman’s profile while an Internal OD Specialt at Rich Products Corporation. Reviewed several versions of applications and chose Wayne Carpenter’s system since he had developed it over 30 years by then and had it validated psychometrically through his partnership with the Industrial Psychologist at Gaylord Industrials. His beta sites include Dollar General Corporation and Hospital Corpital of America.
KT has used the profile for hiring, development, team building and succession planning. Her clients include Rich Products, Rich Seapak, the FAA, NASA, and Ford Motor Corporation, where she used it for high performers who were spending a month shadowing the Chief Executive and his team. Other clients include Merrill Lynch in NYC, HCA, and many more.
She now has a network of consultants and consulting companies around the world whom she has trained and supports.
She is a member of several organizations in development and testing organizations, including the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, a division of the American Psychological Society.
