ABOUT US

WE WANT TO HELP A LOT OF PEOPLE.

After spending many years working in clinical psychology, CEO, Rick Breden, shifted to organizational psychology and founded Behavioral Essentials.  The initial idea was to introduce a family therapy model to companies after realizing that all companies are made up of groups of people who function in many ways like a family, complete with all the happy and sad that brings.

At Behavioral Essentials, we want to help you manage the sad and help you and your company grow.  Using our behavioral assessment, suite of cloud-based reports and team of professional consultants, we help you get back to the table performing at a higher level and develop a customized course of action to effectively hire and develop your people.
