The Passion Profiler™, a groundbreaking online tool, assesses and identifies an individual’s life and work-related passions which are the outward manifestation of the deeper inner purpose which drives that individual. These quantifiable passions are expressed as 10 Passion Profile Archetypes that define a person’s overall approach to work and life – and how they can be best engaged within their organization. Here is a sampling of the Passion Profile Archetypes:
- The Builder: Creating a strong sense of urgency to deliver results, they’re the driving force of obtaining or expanding an organization’s presence on the market.
- The Connector: With a strong desire to see both sides of an issue, they are born communicators, adept at negotiation and relationship building.
- The Conceiver: These “intellectual acrobats” think outside the box, imagine new possibilities and contribute to innovation.
- The Processor: The sustainers of structure, function and tradition, they create a framework for the organization by developing processes, analyzing information, and establishing and maintaining quality standards.
- The Altruist: The humanitarians of the organization, they are on the lookout to raise your organization’s profit, while benefiting the world at large.
“The Passion Profiler is the most powerful tool for personal and professional development I have ever come across. The passion archetypes make sense on every level. Businesses and organizations that take advantage of this resource will develop their most valuable asset – their employees – and will, no doubt, become healthier and more productive.” - Vice President, Medical Education, Sanofi-Aventis
“Presenting the results of thousands of interviews and on- line tests that have led to the establishment of the ten archetypes would in itself be a considerable achievement of great academic and intellectual interest. Providing insight into how to manage the profile, its strengths and vulnerabilities and which pairings work well or badly together and under what circumstances makes this a management tool of true value.” - Managing Director, Merck

Bill Spreitzer of Excellerate Solutions was highly recommended to me by a third party as a very effective personal and business coach. I engaged Bill soon thereafter and we consequently worked together over a 3 month period on a regular basis. Bill is a true professional and he quickly helped me deeply understand my deep seated belief systems as well as realizing where my overriding strengths and passions lie that influence every aspect of my life.
The final results for me were truly eye opening to say the least. The various testing methods and exercises that Bill utilizes in his program yielded an accurate definition of my personal traits and thought processes. I have since become much more self aware and self confident of my strengths and live much more in the present moment than before. I truly understand exactly who I am but more importantly why I am who I am.
I would highly recommend Bill’s services to anyone in search of a breakthrough in their lives.
—Jeffrey Rinz - Business Owner
“I contracted with Bill at Excellerate Solutions because professionally I was in a rut and it was affecting many other facets of my life. After a couple of lay-offs and uninspiring jobs I found in my industry, I knew I needed to do something different. Through a series of meetings with Bill and using some qualified processes and “homework assignments”, Bill helped me peel back the layers of my life and see a different approach to my career and my job search.
Bill exhibited an empathetic and positive approach and systematically helped me to re-discover the Passion and Purpose in my life and how that relates to career choices and professional development. Bill also introduced me to the process of “Networking”, provided lists and contacts for various networking groups in my area and even accompanied me to several of them and introduced me to key personnel who could further be of help in the area of job search and professional development.
I am deeply grateful for the guidance and encouragement that he provided over the past 4-5 months.”

I started working with Bill during a time in my life when I had to make some tough decisions.

Bill cares about his clients and their success. Bill wishes for everyone to live in passionate pursuit of their true prupose in life.

Dave’s patient and professional attitude helped educate team members from various backgrounds and created a common shared vision for the future of the company.
We also engaged Dave Vogelpohl of Excellerate Solutions to provide individual coaching and training on business issues surrounding change management and leadership. This level of individual coaching allowed all of our staff to feel more involved in and a part of the changing business situations surrounding our transition. Employees were strengthened and value was recognized through increasing self-confidence, ownership, and individual decision making. This balanced approach to strategic thinking has left an indelible mark of improvement for key staff and is already showing a return on that investment through increased productivity and dedication.”
—Rich Henderson, VP Business Operations - Audubon Environmental
“The real strength of this entire program is Dave Vogelpohl himself. Dave’s extensive 30-year experience with Fortune 500 companies gives him a very good perspective of other businesses, both large or small but more importantly his diplomatic personal skills gives him the ability to ask the right questions at the right time in just the right way. While not seeming to be invasive or rude he is able to articulate thoughtful questions that aim directly at the center of important issues. His friendly but professional style allows his client to think about the essence of the question rather than feel that he/she has just been criticized. This is an extremely important skill that Dave exercises well during this very introspective process. On many occasions he has allowed me to view myself, my management style, and my company in ways that few people can.”
—Tom Farin, President - Owner, Pegasus Lighting
