Meet Randy Guttenberger

Today we’d like to introduce you to Randy Guttenberger. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Randy Guttenberger is an Author, and Personality Insights Analyst for over 25 years. He helps improve human performance by using a combination of professional assessments, principles and insights, and unique coaching expertise. His delivery reflects his energetic passion, experience and humor. Randy shows people how to get maximum results with minimal efforts. Once you implement his tools and techniques into your own success you will never look at life – or people – the same way again.

Randy brings a unique combination of science, management, coaching, counseling, and development to help clients gain a clear understanding of their dynamics in just two sessions. He then provides action steps to make the difference you have always wanted to realize.

Randy’s passion is to certify 3000 people (trainers/counselors/coaches) in MYS to be the expert to bring these wonderful solutions to their local communities.

Randy works with hospitals, schools, counselors, companies and individuals. He is a keynote speaker, corporate coach, co-owner of the MYS Counseling and Assessment Clinic in Manvel TX and Lake Jackson TX, and training 118 licensed therapists/coaches in 9 states with his program. MYS combines neuroscience, management assessments and principles, therapy, and coaching. His book has been taught at UH Victoria graduate counseling program.

Rhino Insights also has created an SEL (Social Emotional Learning) program for elementary and middle schools designed to be on the front side of mental health issues helping students, educators, and parents. We have a preK-12th grade curriculum for schools along with educator In-Service TEA CPE’s.

Also, in 2020, we designed online MYS courses for parents and the public rolling out very soon.

This year Managing Your Crazy Self! is promoting MYCS programs to state conferences in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Virginia, and ACA national counseling conference.

In addition, in 2020 MYS Education 501c3 was established to help foster care families/youth and social workers, veterans, schools, and the underserved.

Randy started in 1996 creating What You’re Good At, a student career assessment program and workbook. The program uses corporate assessments to help students understand how they address problems, people, procedures, and pace of the day and to identify their motivators to help them find careers that fit their personality. The program guides students to prioritize and vet their career possibilities, find universities that match their career list, and network with professionals to have a job when they graduate. Randy has been invited by many parents to work with their companies. Parents stated if he could identify dynamics of their high school student so accurately without ever having met them, he could likely help executives in their company.

After years of success proving the concepts in coaching, Randy committed to write down the principles of how the mind, personality dynamics, and experiences affect individuals and their relationships. Randy authored three tools addressing the mind, personality traits, and experiences: Managing Your Crazy Self, Managing Your Crazy Self Personality Dynamics, and the Managing Your Crazy Self Workbook. Randy also trains coaches to help clients apply these principles to their lives.

Today Randy speaks, coaches professionals and families, produces audio and video podcasts, creates online courses, and certifies providers to teach the Managing Your Crazy Self! principles, and is growing his program through licensed therapists across the country.

He enjoys travel, golf, music (playing several instruments) and fishing.

Randy has a B.B.A. in Finance from Stephen F. Austin State University.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
My journey has been growing continuously all 25 years in many amazing ways. But not always smooth. New innovative efforts have multiple challenges with life events, cash flow, technology changes, growth opportunities, new markets, partnerships, expanding the vision, marketing, deliverables, etc. So, with all that – pretty smooth.

Originally I was happy being an independent consultant. Then I became a single parent raising 3 boys. My work succeeded because of referrals. Now the boys are adults and I am able to market nationally. I had such success with corporate clients I needed to write the book. I wasn’t a writer, Took me 4 years to write the book. I was a solutions consultant/coach. In marketing to state counseling conferences, I found I was way ahead of the curve. My book was taught at the University of Houston, Victoria, TX campus. 2 Counselors became partners and opened MYS Clinics. A school counselor joined to write school curriculum. We started our non-profit MYS Education 501c3 in 2020 to serve foster care families/youth, veterans, schools and underserved. We just keep expanding because MYS works for so many markets.

MYS has become such a wonderful package of tools and insights since I wrote it out. The book, Managing Your Crazy Self! has been wonderfully received and it works for all ages! Now I have an 8 step package educating how the brain works, how to understand your personality effectively, how to identify and heal the core emotional wound, identify your authentic self, then six steps how to sustain healthy thinking and relationships. Often, when I tell people all that is happening they seem amazed.

Now I have so many Counselors and Coaches that have validated the MYS concepts we are in bigger growth challenges marketing nationally.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
MYS teaches what is RIGHT about you. Counseling as a whole listens, reflects, and diagnosis what is wrong. It is not truly solution-oriented. That would not work in the business world. MYS combines corporate tools and insights to Counseling. It is like combining peanut butter and chocolate! I am proud the book has worked and for all ages, Counselors and business managers love it. Couples love the concepts.

I help people see they may feel broken but are not ruined. MYS, Managing Your Self, packages the how to and the why and when, with support. It is neuroscience, management, tools, and coaching all rolled into one.

What does success mean to you?
There are several levels to that question. First sustain yourself. Then have a vision and pursue it with a passion. Success will find you if you are persistent.
