Hallmarks of Distinctiveness
We at Archer~Martin are praised for our ability to:

- Advance your personal and professional goals and aspirations by aligning your EQ and IQ, defining and understanding your Meyers-Briggs personality type, and supporting how truly knowing oneself can catapult both the individual and the institution to successful outcomes.
- Translate experience and expertise from one environment to another – moving the focus from the paper to the person.
- Focus, with intentionality, on transition management to the betterment of both the individual and the institution.
