Centre, Regina Pats (WHL) - 2016 NHL Draft 4th round (92nd overall pick) by the Toronto Maple Leafs
"Barry was very passionate and enthusiastic when he worked with us, and I think this really had guys interested in what we were learning which made this so successful for our team..."
Earlier this year our team was very fortunate to work with Barry Jansen. The personality tests we did were very interesting in the fact I have ever done anything like this before. I believe that not only myself, but our whole team found this very interesting because it allowed for us to see everyone’s personalities on paper which you don’t normally get to see. It helped me to see what my natural tendencies are and why I act like I do in certain situations. You realize the things you may naturally lack, like empathy for example, and it allows you to focus on that and make improvements. This can make you a better all around person and teammate.
I believe it has also helped our team be so successful this season because you realize the different personalities within a group and how to approach guys when it comes to certain things. You realize that some guys like to be alone and some guys need to be surrounded by people. It has helped us get a healthy balance and really become a cohesive unit for this season. Would highly recommend this to any group, whether it’s a sports team, or a workplace, as it really can bring a group closer together. Barry was very passionate and enthusiastic when he worked with us, and I think this really had guys interested in what we were learning which made this so successful for our team.
