Our advantages

  • Breadth of Experience

    We've worked with a diverse group of organizations, ranging from Fortune 500 companies to private colleges to 5 person family-owned businesses.

    Our clients are also spread out geographically, from across the Unites States to outside of the country.

  • Unique Perspective

    Most of our competitors focus on the cognitive (intellectual) and the affective (emotional) parts of the mind. But these alone don't explain why two people with similar skill set and personality can perform so differently in the same role.

    The third part of the mind, conation, determines how people instinctually make decisions, solve problems and perform tasks. We are experts in this aspect of what makes people tick.

  • Scientific Approach

    Our recommendations are always supported by data and reports.

    At the core of our programs is a set of unrivaled assessments, which have a 50-year track record and offer an entirely different insight into human performance than anything else in the marketplace.

  • Personal Touch

    Our work is personal. As such, we recgonize the importance of a compassionate, caring approach.

    Our aim is always to breed confidence, success, and satisfaction in our clients.

We know the secret of success

How to avoid exhaustion, frustration and poor performance.

If you often feel exhausted, frustrated or under-accomplished, it may be that you are putting your effort into the wrong things...like hauling wood with a hammer or driving nails with a truck. You may still be getting results, but the road getting there is a tough one.

The key is to identify your natural strengths so you can strategically target your efforts to get the results you want, while being successful and satisfied in your work.

The irony with poor performing teams and individuals is that they often have all of the right tools, but those tools are misused and energy is put in the wrong places.
