Insights & Inspirations

  • …we thought if you can actually use leadership as a concept and as a platform for healing people, restoring them, for giving them a common language that might help them look in a mirror and take out the broccoli in their teeth. – Jeremie Kubicek
  • So we created the 5 Voices to be a tool that merges in emotional intelligence into personality and communication into personality and then we made it so sticky.  – Jeremie Kubicek
  • So the five (voices) are Pioneers, and there are Connectors, and there are Creatives, and there are Guardians, and there are Nurturers.  – Jeremie Kubicek
  • So, the Connector has the ability to see in the future and connect people’s aspirations to ideas. So they’re a people, people but they’re really idea people mixed together. – Jeremie Kubicek
  • Creative, which means I can see the future, usually ahead of anyone else. I’m so future-oriented. My head is there, but I’m a creative feeler, so it’s almost like how do I feel about the future. So I’ve got these little antennae. I can feel vibes in the future.- Jeremie Kubicek
  • Pioneer is someone who, they see an objective, they’re like a general, they allocate people and resources and they make it happen. All right, got it! This is our mission, let’s go! They work voraciously to succeed at that objective. – Jeremie Kubicek
  • A Nurturer is someone who is so people oriented that they want people to do well. So they’re the oil inside relationships. They’re always asking, “How are you doing John? What’s going on? What do you need?” It’s 43% of the population are Nurturers. They’re present-oriented, so they’re not thinking about tomorrow. They’re thinking about today and who can I help today.- Jeremie Kubicek
  • Guardians are the ones that are the detail, logical 30% of the population.  The majority of them are men, but the Guardians, they’re the reason we have power grid systems. They’re the reasons we have electricity. But you’ll find them as bankers, some lawyers. You’ll find them as military, police, firemen. They’re very task driven. – Jeremie Kubicek
  • The Platinum rule is to do unto others as they would want to be done unto themselves. – Jeremie Kubicek
  • So the idea is to fight for the highest possible good in those that you lead. – Jeremie Kubicek
  • (Guardians & Nurturers) They’re 73% of the population because they’re present-oriented, they’re usually not the top positions of companies. So if you think about the Pioneers, 7% of the population, that they makeup over 50% of the CEO and/or senior executive slots because people hire Pioneers for the future.  – Jeremie Kubicek
  • I said my wife,(in the past) every time we’d have a conflict, it wouldn’t just be hysterical, it would be historical. And a woman who is a Guardian will whip your butt in a historical battle. – John Marsh
  • … we measure, we manage, and we multiply. – John Marsh
