While this site emphasises 'in court', the Klevah Method™ is suitable for any type of presentation whether a written presentation or when you are on your feet.
The Klevah Method™ combines three entirely separate business theories shown below as 'progression'. The result is that
clients can present themselves, in court or anywhere else for that matter, in a pristine manner.
(Pristine Presentations™). This gives a better chance of success. This site is not aware of any organisation that
combines DISC theory, the Platinum Rule and Effective Presentation methods concurrently.
Progression 1. William Moulton Marston created the DISC behaviour pattern theory in 1928. His theory contemplates four dimensions of human behaviour Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Conscientiousness. There are four patterns within each. While there are commercial vendors from whom you can do a test and obtain what yours is, it is beyond the pale to think that a magistrate (or your boss, etc.) would agree to do the assessment just for you. The Klevah Method™ uses multiple techniques, some art and some science, to pick other peoples patterns. It is this know how that is part of what you are paying for. It is a sort of reverse engineering that takes years of experience in using DISC to become effective in being as correct as possible. Can this assessment be wrong? Of course. The scarcity of information is sometimes an issue and some people are very hard to pick as they can be two faced and this might take more time to uncover. Some people think that a person is being 'pidgeon holed' and they are uncomfortable. However, using the Klevah Method™, it does not matter as the person being analysed would never know that their pattern has been picked. This is common when dealing with strangers that range from a magistrate to an an insurance assessor. Should the other person know their own pattern, no issue.
Progression 2. Peter Selleck leverages the Platinum Rule philosophy. Essentially, impose on others what they willingly want imposed on themselves. To do that you need their DISC pattern or, as an emergency option, just their DISC dimension. There is even a fall back position if it's someone you do not know (e.g. whomever you speak to in a call centre or to complain to the council over a parking fine). After extensive research, we have the techniques to impose on others so that they are more likely to willingly do what you want them to do. Again, this is what you are paying for. These techniques address the recipient's style with particular emphasis on how they will go under pressure (e.g. a magistrate in a court), and how to avoid their fears. If we take Peter's own pattern, which is 'Creative', one fear is lack of influence. So if he was the magistrate it might make sense to present to him knowing that he likes to be in charge of things and High C's drown in facts. So go hard on the facts. That is way different from a 'Promoter' who fears lack of social acceptance and self worth. So appealing to their feelings and emotions is the way to go. And they tend to have a very short attention span and flit from one thing to another. Do you see that the DISC pattern is needed first?
Progression 3. Peter Rogen created a methodology of effective presentations in the 1960's. This off Broadway actor's ideas were commercialised on a global scale by former New Zealand PR man Neil Flett, now retired. Peter's philosophy revolved around how you delivered your presentation and that is way more important than what you said. It is our view that presentations are generally woeful. Of course there are exceptions. By way of example, in 2016 a barrister's presentation was absolutely torn to shreds by the magistrate. It was clear that a structured presentation that would appeal to the magistrate's style was not present. There is huge resistance from some people to be trained in presenting as they think that they are above that. They automatically have a reduced chance of success. It is also mission critical to carefully consider what you wear and how you are groomed. Past observations have revealed torn jeans, unshaven faces, wild hair, ill fitting and crushed garments and ultra low cut outfits. Pristine Presentations™ therefore relies on a saying in classical Greek: "The man is his clothing."
