What we do

Hired by senior business and HR leadership, we provide scientifically driven assessments that can deliver predictive accuracy of over 20 personality traits that are then customized to behaviors and competencies you target for individual and team success within your organization.

We follow up with confidential and proactive coaching for individuals with concrete action steps to help ensure team wins and personal growth.

step one

Assess Personality Traits

Our assessments are scientifically driven, with over 50 years of ongoing research and refinement to provide predictive accuracy for over 20 personality traits. (We customize which behaviors and competencies your organization wants to target, and you cannot  fool the assessment.)

Key concepts include:

  • Your traits are your "personality skeletal system" – Behaviors can change, but personalities generally don't
  • Only individuals will see their assessments – Results are strictly confidential and discussed anonymously within teams
  • Useful throughout continuum from hiring through succession – Individuals, teams, and organizations all benefit from custom assessments and coaching
  • Universal to all functions, roles, and industries – Because the need for behavioral agility is also universal
  • Online, one hour – A short period of time for a lifetime of benefits
  • Highly predictive and accurate – Measures traits rather than identifying people by "color" or "type" that has little correlation to job performance
step two

Debrief to your team

We will present your team (either in person or via Webex) with themes and trends regarding its current culture and style. We will then gain agreement on what is needed to produce better team performance. These findings are beneficial both for ongoing individual work as well as future team interactions.

Key concepts include:

  • No singling out of individuals – We look at the team as if it was one "individual"
  • We report on a median team baseline – This provides a group-wide starting point for the work ahead
  • We ask questions, never dictate – Does the group assessment resonate with everyone? Is it accurate?
  • The team determines the path forward – To fully invest one's efforts on the team, the team needs to identify and hold to the efforts required

Coach individuals

Following team agreement on themes and trends of group behavior, we schedule one-on-one follow-ups to go over individual data and action steps to meet that team agreement.

Key concepts include:

  • We review your core traits – What objectively makes you tick and feeds into your behavior
  • We discuss how your traits play into critical competencies – How well do you collaborate, communicate, and so on? Not "good" or "bad," but as general behavioral styles
  • We identify general behavioral themes and trends with manager – But never raw data and never intrusively
  • We meet 30 minutes a month for a year – To help ensure that the behaviors are "sticky"
step four

Elevate performance

Our client feedback is consistently full of reported “wins” for both individuals and teams, on all rungs of the hierarchy.

Anecdotal feedback includes:

  • Increased efficiency – By preventing technical training duplication
  • Improved alignment of clinical development protocol – By setting up 1:1 meetings with key partners to learn each others' perspectives
  • Increased Board collaboration – Less "aggression" while collecting needed information
  • Increased interdepartmental collaboration – Between Medical Affairs and Commercial for a biosimilars group
  • Clarified alignment – Between a field office and home office
  • Quickly on-boarded a current VP – Into a new role within the company
  • Enhanced senior leader's self-awareness – Which in turn enhanced career management and growth
