What our Clients are Saying...
I have been fortunate to attend several presentations by Sean Kaufman, President of Behavioral-Based Improvement Solutions, and have been privileged recently to work with him on a training program for responsible officials. While my experience regarding Mr. Kaufman has been limited to personal involvement it has been a positive experience. I find his approach to training that involves behavior modification innovative and in my opinion contributes to a more successful outcome. It is also an approach that I believe would be useful in any kind of change management situation.

Sean Kaufman has provided exemplary, behavioral-based training for myself and other biosafety professionals in our organization on several occasions. He uses non-traditional methods to challenge students to consider both the client needs and the biosafety requirements for working safely in the laboratory. Sean is an expert in behavioral modification and in biosafety and emergency response procedures required in high containment facilities. He embraces experiential and thought-provoking training that students will retain and use in their everyday work. He demonstrates a high level of integrity that inspires students to do their best in their profession. I highly recommend Sean for behavioral-based training - he is definitely a leader that is dedicated to improving the work environment, client service and personnel interaction to meet the needs of both biosafety professionals and researchers.

Sean Kaufman is a highly talented trainer with a deep knowledge of high-containment laboratories and the behavior-based human skills needed to operate them safely, efficiently, and effectively. His work with the University of Florida’s Emerging Pathogens Institute when it launched its BSL-3 labs was instrumental in it quickly obtaining USDA/CDC start-up approval. Sean keenly understands that behavior based training is crucial to successfully running high containment labs and he adeptly conducts his training sessions towards this end. If your institution is getting into the high containment business, or looking for help given the new Tier 1 regulations, I highly recommend you contact Sean for coaching and guidance.
