Dr. Woodsmall was instrumental in pioneering the concept and applications of behavioral modeling technology while working on various projects for the U.S. Government. The theory and structure of the modeling process was a synthesis of many technologies that Dr. Woodsmall and Mr. Richard Graves explored for the defense and intelligence communities.

Dr. Woodsmall's work with the U.S. Army led to the development of behavioral models of top rifle and pistol shooters and the design of training programs that dramatically increased shooting performance, reduced training time and slashed ammunition expenditure.

He also worked with the defense and intelligence communities to increase performance in other areas such as Stinger gunnery, Morse Code reception, recruiting techniques, hovercraft operations, soldering, information management system's administration, synthesis and creativity, courage and bravery, and intelligence and security operations.

Dr. Woodsmall has developed behavioral models for many top corporations and has modeled top managers and leaders in government and industry; with top salesmen, negotiators and trainers. In addition to performance enhancement through the use of behavioral modeling technology, Dr. Woodsmall has also applied the technology to the areas of personnel selection and "psycho-ergonomics."


Dr. Woodsmall's training programs include leadership and management, advanced interpersonal communications, negotiations, sales, meeting management, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, modeling, interrogation, detecting deception, hostage negotiations and pain control.

He conducted a highly successful leadership training seminar called New Patterns of Influence for General Officers and Special Executive Service civilians in the U.S. Army.
