About Murray

Who is Murray Comber?

 

WHO

I am a Corporate Soft Skills Trainer as well as a Career & Work Consultant, and I’ve trained over 8,000 people since 2001.

 

WHERE

I live in Stratford, Ontario, Canada, a 90 minute drive west of Toronto, and I’ve trained people all across Canada.

 

WHAT

Simply put, I help people Understand Themselves & Others. I do this using both Temperament and Type assessments such as Personality Dimensions ® and Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) ®. There are several others available depending on your need.

 

WHY

The outcomes help…

  • Build team dynamics
  • Strengthen leadership competencies
  • Enhance communication
  • Develop a shared vision between themselves and their workplace.
  • Encourage peak performance
  • An individual determines their personal career path

In the workplace this is to improve morale, assist in motivation and enhance innovation.

I do this by training people “one on one”, in groups of various sizes, and in plenary sessions. This happens in the public, private, not-for-profit and corporate sectors.

Life Concepts: The Name

After I graduated from my Career and Work Counselling Program, Life Concepts started as an idea but didn’t have a name. I wanted to say a lot in as short a name as possible. After much thought, I focused on two words. What I do came down to a variety of Concepts.

The word “Concept” finds its roots in a Latin word meaning ‘something conceived’. It means ‘to take an idea into the mind’. The mind converts it into a model, the model is what you measure, compare or assess something against. I had the first word but needed to apply it to an environment.

“Life” was that environment. Life is defined as ‘the sequence of physical and mental experiences that make up the existence of an individual’,  ‘the way or manner of living ‘, and finally, ‘from birth to death’.

So, Life Concepts is about ‘All that happens while we are alive where we conceive ideas, create models, compare them to daily human experiences in order to create a positive, healthy Life’. 

I can do this in Careers but also in all personal & family environments by helping people to Unnderstand Themselves and Others

MY PASSION

Personally, I’m passionate about a number of things, but one of the biggest is what this site introduces you to. Simply put, my passion for the World of Work is…

Being able to work with a group of people from staff, to teams, to senior and extended management, and make the human dynamics of that workplace rise to a new level synergy.

  • To watch eyes light up when people finally understand both themselves and others or,
  • To walk a man, woman or teen through part of their career journey, resolving their work issue, determining a new direction…

This is what gets me pumped, and gets the adrenaline rushing!

At the end of the day, I love helping people discover more about themselves. When you really understand how you’re internally wired, then determining your direction (that is, what happens in all aspects of your life; where you want to go next month, year or decade) becomes so much easier!

Basically, I help you discover yourself now so that you can more easily
determine how you can make your life unfold in the future!

So, if You’re Ready… I’m Ready!
