Morgan is recognized as a master in developing effective individuals, leaders and teams. He is the author and developer of the proprietary, computerized Forté Interpersonal Communication Style Profile, which is used throughout the world. What would evolve into what is now Forté began in the late 1970s as a quest by Morgan to find a statistically valid instrument that would help identify an individual’s personal communication-style strengths.

His educational background also includes Understanding and Solving Complex Business Problems at MIT’s Sloan School of Management; Reinventing Your Business Strategy at Sloan School of Management; and the Program on Negotiation for Senior Executives and Dealing with Difficult People in Difficult Situations at Harvard Law School.
