"I have especially enjoyed working with John Moudakis and the Education Department staff this fall. John stepped into a demanding job when he took on the Acting Director position and he has maintained training momentum and a professional team where everyone’s expertise is respected and utilized. I appreciated his “hands on “ approach and was a flexible, perceptive and highly organized leader of the Dubai Project this fall." - Toronto, Canada
“When contact made with John, the organization of training for my team was excellent” - Belfast, Northern Ireland
“John shows a great attention to detail and it is clear he can devise, implement and operate systems to support wide ranging programmes/projects. John also pays a good deal of attention (on his own direction) to strategic matters with an eye to improving what is already in existence. His approach when dealing with people is positive and professional.” - Southampton, England

ENFJs are energetic, enthusiastic, and very aware of others. Their genuine interest can usually draw out and involve even the most reserved person. They listen to and support others, but also have very definite values and opinions of their own, which they will express clearly. ENFJs are energized by people and are socially adept; however, they also have a strong need for authentic, intimate relationships.
