Art Miller was a pioneer. For most of his adult life he had been seeking to better understand the person and how to integrate faith and work. Although only a beginning, he had found that there is one answer to both issues.
Arthur F. Miller founded People Management in 1961 which is now SIMA® International
with a network of consultants operating in four continents providing a range of human resource services based on Art's discoveries.
He is best known for near half-a-century odyssey researching and promoting the phenomenon of giftedness as innate in human nature. Art and his colleagues have studied the achievement history of an estimated 100,000 professional and management personnel; mainly one-at-a-time. Based on the rigorous phenomenological research, and the absolute consistency of their findings, he developed a System for Identifying Motivated Abilities [SIMA®]
as the centerpiece of his lifework.
Realizing the need for a paradigm shift to one stressing the individual, Art began making presentations, writing articles and books explaining a new virtual psychology based on their research findings. Previously unknown among academics, the massive amount of evidence they gathered about the nature and behavior of the individual explained the inability of psychology over a century of its life searching for governing principles, to generate a science of persons or even a useable definition of the person.
Kidded by his associate, Steve Darter, as a ‘Johnny Appleseed’, Art has authored and co-authored books on inborn giftedness. His books are being re-released in ebook formats and are available on Amazon.com.
He has written articles for AMA’s International Digest and International Forum, Institute of Personnel Management (UK), American Society Of Training and Development, College Placement Council, Association for Manufacturing Excellence, Personnel Management, Alban Institute, and The Conference Board (Across the Board).
