Tony Robbins can't be used as useful model of discussion on
organizations until it has been tested and objective criteria of
analysis applied to that model. Besides, as was stated, what applies
to individuals doesn't necessarily apply to organizations.

Robbins may be entertaining to watch. And everyone of those people
that speak in testimony towards his training's effectiveness may be
all valid. But unless an objective researcher(s) measures how well
it works and on how many of those people use it successfully versus
other methods then you should be wary of such an individual's models
as appropriate.

You simply can't take an untrained individual with a huge financial
interest in getting people to beleive in his gospel and buy his
tapes, seminars and books WITHOUT independent validation seriously.
Come on, he states he's successful because he learned the secrets of
success and now teaches others how to lose weight, feel good about
themselves, and be aggressive--and then started selling it to you!
