  • Coaching & Development

    Talent Focus Consulting utilizes the unique PXT Select assessment tool for selection and for employers to understand an employee. PXT Select also provides valuable information to the individual. The feedback provided to the employee about themselves will help them to achieve greater success in their work endeavors and lead to satisfaction with their job. The Coaching Report give a supervisor a deeper understanding of an employee and identifies potential challenge areas. Reporting includes valuable information to a manager specifically “What You Need to Know” , “Management Tips”, and “Bottom Line” analysis tailored for training and developing that employee. Finally everyone has preferences for how they want to be managed. Managers also have a preferred style of their own. The Manager-Employee Report helps understand these preferences comparing the employee and managers tendencies with specific suggestions for working more effectively together.

  • Leadership Development

    PXT Select enables a leader to continually become more effective at not only selecting the right talent for their organizations, but by providing specific, powerful coaching and development tools to lead their teams. A leader will learn more about themselves and how they relate to their staff, how they tend to handle conflict, adapt to change, their desired interaction with others and their communication style just to name a few. Information is valuable and being able to provide specific detailed information to a leader designed to help them be more effective is invaluable!

  • Team Building

    Talent Focus Consulting utilizes the PXT Select assessment tool as part of our team building services. The PXT Select Team Report is designed to give our clients a deeper understanding of their team by allowing them to easily see how each person behaviorally compares to the team leader and one another. The result is an increased understanding in how the teammates differ in behavioral tendencies to better address daily interactions and conflict resolution.

  • Succession Planning

    Does your company have a plan in place that allows for upward mobility for your employees, or opportunities for them to move to other areas of the organization where their talents align? We use the PXT Select tool as part of our succession planning service offering. Having a game plan in place to account for different scenarios requires a lot of forward thinking. Using the PXT Select with your individual employees and management team is an integral and valuable piece to that puzzle. Having a “play book” on each individual gives our clients the advantage of being able to not only help match an employee to a new open position within their organization but also to match them with a specific manager, a specific team and even give you the best match to 1 position/several employees and or several employees/one position.
