The offical personality profile of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders as seen on Making The Teem


Cynthia Dee - Newark, NJ
All that the CORE Profile has for people, you can't put a price on it. I know what you have to offer is exactly what the world needs to know. I am privileged to have had the opportunity to experience this remarkable tool.

Kelly Stokes - Carrollton, Texas
It is hard to express in words how grateful I am that our paths crossed. I feel as if I have finally been given permission to do what I want. I now have a glimpse of an opening door all because of you and the CORE Profile.

Harriet Meyerson - The Confidence Center - Dallas, Texas
"IT WAS LIFE CHANGING". This is the best way I can describe your CORE Profile. Even though I have spent years on my own personal development, I still discovered a new awareness of myself (and who I really am) that I am really excited about. After experiencing your program, I believe that the first timer, just starting on the path of self-discovery, as well as those who have studied personal development for a long time, can benefit immensely from the CORE Profile.

Mara Landivar - Dallas, Texas
Thank you for taking the time to review my CORE profile with me. I brought it back to work and shared the information you gave me with my boss. He's decided (based on the information) to assign me to a job site in Mexico where I will increase my salary by 50%! Thank you so much for giving me the understanding and the courage to know and ask for what I want. People often look for miracles in their lives. You were mine!

Carol Bunting - Sachse, TX
"Thanks to you and your work (my son) has turned a very important corner at a very troubled time in his life. I really believe that if you hadn't come along, his life would have taken a completely different, and not positive, direction. But with your help he has been able to be honest about issues that had been festering in him for a very long time. What a blessing you have been. The CORE Profile is such a revolutionary program It has the potential to benefit many people for a long time to come. I will always be grateful for your gift.

Frank Hanrahan - Ottawa, Canada
"I realized about twenty years ago that something was wrong, either with me or with the world around me. I began a lengthy pursuit of the truth as to which was which. I waded through hordes of self-help books, attended seminars, even spent seven years in conventional therapy with no positive result. The CORE profile and your self-discovery program were a Godsend, and a stellar example of the type of work that can benefit all of mankind. A thousand thank-you's."

Rebeka Rosenthal - San Antonio, Texas
"My personal and professional enthusiasm, and consequent endorsement, of the CORE Multidimensional Awareness Profile knows no bounds. I would describe my life as an eight out of ten before taking the CORE profile. Yet, as a lifestyle coach, I wanted ten out of ten. I knew I had yet to experience that elusive state called 'flow'. In one personal coaching session fifteen years of internal conflict and tension became clear. Suddenly, I understood that the reason I never felt quite right in my own soul was because it wasn't really my soul. It was the soul of the woman I thought I had to be. My journey since the CORE experience has been liberating and empowering. Each day I glimpse more of that authentic woman I was always meant to become and I know that the CORE Profile has been a faithful mirror that has helped me to see my true self for the very first time."

Charles Drayton - Dallas, Texas
When Marc convinced me to complete a COREMAP assessment, I assumed it would be a very similar management profiling technique to many I have undergone over the course of my career. I was wrong! The assessment provided me with unique insights into what I desired from my career and highlighted conflicts between my needs and the path I had been pursuing for many years. I strongly recommend this process for anyone wishing to have a better understanding of themselves, but particularly to those making significant career decisions. It helped me jettison the baggage and zero in on the career choices that will be personally fulfilling and have the highest likelihood of success.

Patti Villalobos - Dallas, TX
CORE MAP has been an incredible addition to our Pathways Teen Family Camp training because it allows us to work with families so they can understand and communicate with each other in a way that each family member feels heard, listened to, and loved. One of the most powerful moments I've ever seen was when a parent realized that her way of "encouraging" her shy teen was only making him shutdown in fear on a high element of a ropes course (which, of course, was a mirror to their daily experiences as mother and son). When the facilitator asked her to think about her son's CORE MAP type (Organizer) and to talk to him in HIS style, she did...and the boy responded beautifully and completed the exercise. He told her later, "you finally listened to me." That mom now has the KEY to connecting with her son, and our training is all about creating true communication in families. Thank you so much for this fabulous too!

Mike Sebastian, PhD MBA - Copell, TX

After researching many years for help I learned about Dr. Buffington through an acquaintance.  I took a CORE assessment and, without being overly dramatic, I was amazed at the detail revealed. I fought back tears during the post assessment interview.  (I later learned that my reaction is common.) Sherry Buffington quite simply is a genius in the area of human motivation and maximizing one’s potential. She understands what motivates people and she has developed unique assessments and programs, and written compelling books. I would put Sherry Buffington on the level of Tony Robbins in terms of breakthrough results.  Any audience would be greatly enlightened by Dr. Buffington.

David Roper - Plano, TX

CORE MAP training has helped me understand my wife, my children and my co-workers much better. I utilize the basics of CORE MAP virtually every day with people with whom I come into contact. I've also utilized CORE MAP with counseling clients and it's fascinating to see how much they gain from the CORE MAP.


Troy Dunn - San Antonio, TX

CORE MAP has aided my ministry in connecting newest members of our church with ministries that fit them best.  Although we are unable to provide the full CORE MAP, the snap shot has brought us closer to our goals and provides more truth than any other medium we have found.  Many of our staff have taken the full CORE MAP and it has brought much clarity to their understanding of themselves and their current role in our organization.  Thank you for the time and training you provided.

Linda Swindling - Dallas, TX

Finding out my "CORE" communication style may have saved my marriage. It certainly made me a much better mom and is responsible for much of the success I have today. Who knew that the traits I was nurtured to avoid (i.e. being "bossy" and "silly and talkative") were actually my gifts to lead and encourage others? The RAMP program gave me the ability to step into my own power and serve the purpose I was intended to do. Amazing stuff...a dramatic change to my thinking...AND a way to fully live the life meant to be. Thank you.  


Rita Stankus - Denver, CO

I am so blessed to have met you, Sherry! Things are extremely exciting and amazing since my visit to your seminar in Dallas, TX a month ago.  I would like to share with you that I am already working on my newest concept (thanks to your seminar) and if all goes on schedule, I will have the new concept ready for launch to public via internet by this November!  So. . . stay tuned to see what Rita has to share with you all. . . I am still amazed at how much I learned from your seminar. I hope you will share this with others hso they can benefit too. You work has helped me tremendously! Sherry, thank you for helping me to discover and connect to my unknown possibilities and my turn passion in life into great and exciting possibilities! 


Kim Mittelstadt - San Antonio, TX

Sherry, I have to let you know how much CORE and AMP has helped not only myself but my family, more specifically my daughter Jacque. I have worked with you and Gina for quite some time with CORE starting with me.  I felt for so many years that I was stuck on 3 to get ready and couldn't get myself to take the leap of faith and make things happen in my business and personal life.  I always knew as an image consultant sometimes people needed help on the outside to feel good on the inside while others needed to start within, but ultimately it was through a holistic approach that made the ultimate difference; I was no exception. CORE literally changed my life and through AMP I was able to move forward and have closure from past experiences allowing me to finally take that final step and move forward.  I no longer feel the thought barriers in my thinking that once held me back and the weight of my past is gone. I have given myself permission from my head (what I know to be true) to my heart (reality of what is) and truly love what I am doing with my personal and business life.  Understanding communication styles is said to be the key to success and there is no other program that can truly give you the understanding like CORE.  I was shocked the first time I experienced CORE after I had answered the questions.  I had never met my facilitator and yet she understood and asked questions as if she had known me her entire life.  No other counseling session had ever gotten to the level of understanding the real authentic me, and in 45 minutes I was even beginning to get answers and reach a level understanding myself that I had never known. 

To go one step further, my daughter has (had) trichotillamania, which is a hair pulling disorder.  During the middle of 4th grade I had to take her out of school and home school her.  She had bald spots all over her head, no eyelashes and half her brows were missing.  As a parent I was at a complete loss, how do you help your child with a disorder that is subconscious.  I flew her up to Dallas to meet with Sherry and go through AMP with her after having gone through it myself.  Within a few sessions we were on our way to my daughter’s recovery, something I was told after reading so many books on trich that was rarely accomplished.  Sherry was able to reach a deeper level with her that took her actions from subconscious to conscious.  She know longer pulls and has beautiful long red hair.  Any parent or person who has ever had or known someone who has trich understands the suffering that goes into this disorder.  As a supporter we are helpless and as a puller it can be humiliating.  I am so incredibly grateful that we have CORE and AMP in our lives.



Wim Wetzel - Dallas, TX

As my company's employee development and training director I have many opportunities and tools available to positively impact employee and organizational development.  None of them matched the overwhelmingly positive impact that CORE MAP/PEP has on our employees and ultimately their family members.

We have experienced significant performance improvements in every sector of our business where CORE assessments and tools were and are implemented.  The additional and more significant benefit as I see it is that the employees that seriously implement the recommendations for personal and professional improvement are happier, more productive and less stressed in their daily lives.

By implementing CORE MAP in our Call Center we reversed a 60% employee attrition rate to Zero over a month period of time.  This particular organization was unhealthy, non-productive, had significant interpersonal conflict issues amongst the employees and was deemed non-customer centric.  Customers routinely complained about the way they were treated by the Call Center employees.

Upon completion of the CORE process we experienced a significant and immediate improvement in employee performance, interpersonal relationships and customer satisfaction.  Revenue collections also improved far beyond our initial expectations.

I have worked with countless instruments that provide information about an individual based on their responses to a series of questions. I even completed my doctorate on one. I was skeptical, then, when I first heard of the CORE MAP and I believed it to be a watered down version of other more substantial instruments. Imagine my shock, then, when I found this profile to be amazingly accurate and on-point for me. I heartily recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about themselves or wants to address long-standing issues that may be standing in the way of their personal effectiveness.

Linda Dorsey, Sr. Training & Education Rep. - NEC Unified Solutions
I have been hearing great things from both managers and employees regarding the CORE Profile and training. Communication is improving and stress levels seem to be diminishing. I highly recommend the CORE assessment personally and professionally.

Jason Arenburg - AB Group, Inc.
CORE MAP has been an exceptional tool for hiring. I am especially impressed with the part 3 results which are right on in predicting current behavior and development as well as EQ. I have used many assessments, but none measure up to CORE.

Tim Cocklin - New Homes Realty, Inc.
CORE MAP is a huge success and is even winning over the skeptics as they see how accurately the profile predicts how someone will do on the job. The benchmark you helped us create for hiring is proving to be very accurate and valuable as well.

Jeff Kaye, Kaye-Bassman Int’l
We have looked at hundreds of assessments over the years, hoping to find one that would actually deliver the depth of information we were after. None did before now. I'm very impressed with what can be gleaned from CORE MAP.

Willie Baronet - GroupBaronet
Unlike other personality tests I've taken in the past, CORE MAP gave me a more complete picture of how I saw myself vs. how I really am. Seeing where those areas aligned was very powerful, and has helped confirm some gut feelings I had about where I want to head, and where I want to make some changes. My assessment is that it was a much more complete valuation of all parts of the person tested. I'd recommend it highly.

Dale Perryman - Consultant
The CORE MAP and the follow-up coaching was "just what the Dr. ordered". It was insightful in pointing out where my true passion and motivation lies. I felt empowered to create a more satisfying life. Other assessment instruments don't go far enough. CORE MAP not only told me about my strengths, but raised my awareness of personal liabilities. It hit the nail right on the head.

Colin Lindhal - Texas Instruments
I benefited extensively from my CORE MAP profile, both in terms of the information it provided and in terms of how it was presented. I had been through personality profiling before, as an undergraduate, a Naval Officer, a graduate student and as a corporate employee (the MBTI in the last instance). Though I often found the process interesting, I left only with information, not actionable information.

From the CORE MAP profile, I was able to understand some very unproductive behaviors in ways that were entirely new to me. The "aha" moment came when I realized how I had begun to rely on old, ineffective behaviors as my primary way of approaching situations. Though I had felt this to be the case, I had never before been able to verbalize and understand it so clearly. I left our review session with both excitement and a renewed belief that other, more productive aspects of my personality were either accessible within me or in a latent state and capable of being developed.

Since the initial session, I have used the CORE MAP framework, in conjunction with other tools, to look at the other areas of my personality that had been underdeveloped or ignored for years. I know that I am a great deal more than the few, basic behaviors that I had been using in the day-to-day living of my life, and through this process I have been able to name those other areas and take very concrete steps towards developing them.

Scott Espy - NEC Unified - Dallas, TX
Sherry's COREMAP program was a huge benefit for NEC. We used it regularly to sort through job candidates to find the right fit and behaviors to match a job assignment. Her program saved NEC from making several costly hiring mistakes.

In addition, it was very valuable as a tool to improve performance. We administered the COREMAP assessment to existing employees to help them define and address issues with job performance. Both management and the employees were pleased with the results. The key here was that we were able to diagnose a problem and provide a solution. Bottom line, we saved many good employees. On the flip side, it also surfaced where employees were just in a job that did not fit their behavior style and traits. Employees were happy to uncover the source of their anxiety or stress.  NEC was able to fill the position with a better suited candidate.

“When I learned of Dr. Sherry Buffington’s Quantum Leapᶟ training program, I thought adding RAMP and CORE MAP Assessments to my coaching practice would be a nice benefit for my clients. 

After going through the training and becoming a CORE MAP Facilitator and RAMP Practitioner, my coaching business has more than doubled. I have completely converted to using CORE MAP and RAMP in all of my coaching sessions because of the powerful results my clients have been receiving from using these techniques.  Prior to this training, I would have never thought it possible to create such dramatic results with my clients in just one session.  Today, I know that RAMP is what makes it possible. 


As a RAMP Practitioner in training, I also received the benefits of the RAMP technique to help me break free from the obstacles that clouded my own success in my coaching business.   Not only has RAMP had a positive impact on my clients, but it has completely changed my confidence and attitude toward my business. 

For years, I struggled with identifying my target market and niche in my coaching business, while building a strong client base.  Now, not only have I gained clarity around who I serve, but I am speaking to others about what I do effortlessly.  This has been a huge shift for me, and I am seeing the results.  I owe Dr. Sherry Buffington, her team, and Quantum Leapᶟ for being the catalyst for changing the way I think and feel about my business.  I am committed to using these techniques in my practice, so that together, we can help many, many more people.”
