Green Bay, Wisconsin – (April 10, 2010) – Joe Kiedinger,
founder and Brander-in-Chief of Prophit Marketing of Green Bay,
believes that the number one killer of employee job satisfaction and
workplace engagement is tension caused by unhealthy relationships and
To help employers reduce tension and ultimately increase the level of employee
satisfaction with their lives at both work and at home, Kiedinger is launching the
About Me Card Program, an employee engagement system combining breakthrough
communication approaches with supporting software.
The core of the About Me Card Program involves a practical personal assessment that
reveals individuals’ fundamental motivations that are most essential to their
With this information, human resources staff, business owners and managers can
better understand what drives employees at the deepest level and can assist them
with performing their jobs in a more meaningful and productive way.
Kiedinger is holding a premiere event for the launching of the About Me Card Program
at 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 27, at the Meyer Theater in downtown Green Bay. The
event is free and open to the public and is being held in partnership with Junior
Achievement. The event will include a presentation by Kiedinger, a demonstration of
the software, a panel discussion, and live entertainment featuring Let’s Be Frank
Appearing on the panel will be Mark Skogen, President/CEO of Festival Foods; Dan
Swift, General Manager of Dahl Automotive Group; Angela Owen, President of TBL
Leadership Partners; Tom Thibodeau, Director of the Servant Leadership Program at
Viterbo University; Chris Elliott, Managing Director of About Me International; and
At the event, attendees will get a glimpse of two About Me Card Programs that will
be released in 2011, About Me Kids and About Me Teens, as well as several
technological enhancements involving social media.
According to Kiedinger, the About Me Card Program offers important benefits for
employers. “When this program is applied to a business, it allows people to
communicate clearly without misunderstanding, reduce conflicts, cut tension, hire
right and match employees to jobs that fit their talents. In short, this tool
creates a whole new level of cooperation and connection between people at work,” he
Kiedinger adds that “while all of these factors contribute to increased
profitability, what is special with this program is that it helps employers do the
right thing—make life better for their employees.” In addition, he says the program
is also unique in that it helps facilitate the development of leaders across
Kiedinger says the most notable feature of the About Me Card Program is its
simplicity. “I like to call it a ‘Monopoly’ property card except that instead of
being about property it is about a short list of rules to help people successfully
connect with one another. The software enhances the experience by allowing people to
communicate effectively at the click of a mouse. No other assessment offers this
level of immediacy and practicality while providing relevant individualized
information,” he says.
Kiedinger says the About Me Card Program is an ideal culture-building tool that can
easily become a company’s training program or be integrated into an existing
training program. He also says the program can help improve employees’ personal
lives by minimizing if not eliminating workplace tension that they would typically
bring home with them at the end of the workday.
The About Me Card Program is already being used by a wide array of organizations,
and the initial results have been very positive, according to Kiedinger.
Organizations that are currently using the program include the United Way of Brown
County, Festival Foods, Trig’s, Dahl Automotive, Al Huss Auto & Truck, The Selmer
Company and TBL Leadership Partners. In addition, the program is scheduled to be
used by a Campbell’s Soup Company plant in Texas in May.
Kiedinger notes that the About Me Card Program continues to draw inquiries from a
variety of interested parties, including some organizations from China.
A white paper on the About Me Card Program is available. “How to Produce Highly
Motivated and Engaged Employees in the Face of Today’s ‘What’s In It For Me?
Workforce’ ” is available at www.aboutmecard.com
