Dan Harrison Ph.D has an unusually diverse background enabling him to invent a unique
profiling system for organizational development, performance development and career development.
Having a natural talent for mathematics, his original study at California State University at
Northridge focused on mathematics. However, he developed a strong interest in the human mind
and thus changed his focus of study to Psychology and Asian Philosophy. Although his future
career direction was uncertain at the time, he believed in the importance of including interests
and personal passions into career and employment decisions rather than focusing only on abilities.
The importance of "suitability" later became a key principal in the InnerView product.
Having completed his Bachelor's degree in Psychology he began to extensively explore and practice
many different methods for enhancing people's lives using a range of disciplines. He continued
his interest in Human Potential Psychology, completing a Masterís Degree in Marriage and Family
Counseling from Norwich University, Vermont. He then spent 10 years in private practice focusing
on Human Potential Counseling and giving seminars worldwide. He expanded his study to Organizational
Psychology and completed his Ph.D. from Sierra University in Organizational Psychology.
He studied and developed different organizational assessment methods, teambuilding methodologies
and 360 degree feedback methodologies. Seeing the importance of achieving a clear psychological
"picture" of the individual he explored different assessment methodologies. His experience in
Human Potential Psychology combined with his mathematical background enabled him to create a
comprehensive theory and methodology that could accurately identify attitudinal and behavioral
patterns. He spent more than 10 years developing the underlying framework that later became
the InnerView methodology. This combination of experience led to the creation of a comprehensive
personality and organizational development assessment tool, now known as Harrison InnerView.
