  • If you don't know where you are going, you might end up somewhere else - Yogi Berra

    We’ve all hired people who didn’t perform up to our expectations. What’s going on? Our clients discover that their job demands are not accurately or fully defined. Further, absent objective information, hiring teams rely too heavily on gut instincts and superficial information,. Mis-hires follow, along with costly people problems, turnover...and feeling as if the wool has been pulled over their eyes.

    We feel your pain! We work with you to get clear about where you are going so that you will end up where you want to be. Diagnosing before we prescribe, and working with you, we identify essential attributes that drive success in each of your positions.

    Customized systems and tools provide objective, predictive information on how well candidates and employees match your essential position demands.

    Importantly, we ensure your ability to apply information from these systems and tools to maximize your success in hiring, developing, and managing talent!

  • What you do speaks so loudly I cannot hear what you say - Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Culture Matters!
    Great organizations are not built solely on lofty ideals; they are built on great actions. Disconnects between what is said and what is actually done erodes trust and leads to a disengaged workforce. Disengaged employees contribute to low morale, are easily distracted and spend more time watching the clock than focusing on their work. Costs of disengagement are enormous.

    We help you transform or fine tune your culture:

    Working with you, we can assess your current culture, as seen through the eyes of your employees. Their input provides illuminating perspectives regarding the work environment and leadership practices, and how they affect your current culture.

    This critical information serves as a “compass” for navigating through your cultural journey. Working together, we will help you facilitate a plan that integrates insights from this information and creates engaged employees and healthy communications, which are requisites for stellar workpla

  • This would be a great place to work if it weren’t for all these *@$/#!* people!

    Managing and developing talent is complex! We are all wired differently. These differences can result in a thriving workforce that meets or exceeds performance expectations, OR they can result in chaos and miscommunication. Healthy communication and teamwork are the lifeblood of organizations and are fundamental to creating extraordinary workplaces.

    We work with you to get to the core of these differences and move the organization forward in a constructive, positive manner.

    We diagnose before we prescribe! We work with you to assess and understand the unique wiring of your employees and the impact on relationships, communications, productivity, and morale.

    Importantly, we give you the capability to use information from these systems and tools to help you create your own extraordinary workplace- from the front lines to the executive suite.

  • Finally, leadership/management information gets real!

    Most feedback at work is from a boss to a direct report. 360 Reviews expand that feedback to allow the employee, their boss (es), direct reports, peers and others to provide feedback in critical areas, including communications, leadership, adaptability, relationships, task management, production, development of others and personal development. Areas needing attention are highlighted AND SUPPLEMENTED with pointers for improvement. There are also on line modules for areas that need strengthening.

    The impact of such information is far more constructive and more likely to strengthen performance and outcomes than any one on one review. This is a reasonable investment with outstanding returns to your organization!

  • Create Extraordinary Workplaces-- Assess, don't guess!!

    It only takes a minute to make a costly mistake! If you think you don't have time or resources to invest in selecting people most likely to meet performance expectations. you risk having to invest far more time and $$ to correcting the problems caused by inevitable mis- hires.

    We help you use validated, predictive tools to make informed selection, management and development decisions that save time money while strengthening your workforce! Dare to be great... Assess, don't guess!
