We bring a behavioural science approach to business strategy. Achieving a strong competitive advantage begins with a deep understanding of markets as people. It involves meeting the fundamental needs of both customers and employees. We support your strategic efforts in a variety of ways, including deep values exploration, visioning and goal setting, SWOT and SOAR analysis, strategic alignment, and HR planning to identify the personal attributes needed to deliver on different kinds of strategies.
We provide assessment solutions for hiring and development, using valid measures that drive key outcomes in your organization. We’re qualified to use many tests of personality, motives, abilities, and other attributes. Our Positive Personal Inventory® is used to assess positive mindsets. We offer competency-based assessment centres and behavioural event interviews (BEI’s), one of the most evidence-based hiring tools when properly designed. We also consult on positive hiring practices that are viewed as fair and accurate by applicants and are known to boost retention and corporate reputation.
Leadership & Talent Development
Leadership & Talent Development
We assist with employee development strategies and develop programs that are backed by science-based models of human learning and development and proper needs analysis. We go beyond workshops and webinars to provoke deep and lasting change in people and organizations. We help to foster positive mindsets in people, and leverage people’s strengths while managing fundamental ‘weaknesses’ (a word that we’re not afraid to use). Our approach to leadership coaching is holistic, assessment-based, and driven by research on leadership, individual differences, personal change, and organizational behaviour.
Our core product is the Positive Work Inventory®, a quick, yet comprehensive employee survey of the most critical drivers of employee and organizational performance. It includes meaningful work, the sleeping giant of employee motivation. Science-based surveys can address at least 30 different organizational concerns that go far beyond engagement. We also have 25 years of experience in gathering data from multiple sources, both internal and external, and analyzing them with data science to make sense of complex challenges and opportunities for organizations.
We help to determine what people do, and how work gets done for high employee commitment and performance. Jobs are rigorously designed for efficiency, clear lines of sight to performance, and employee health. Jobs are re-crafted to promote meaningful work that dials into people’s motives, strengths, and passions, while still delivering on goals and objectives. We help to build positive and virtuous cultures that strengthen employee bonds and teamwork. With respect to change, we’re informed by many factors that make transformations successful, including positive attitudes, emotions, and readiness. Effective change begins and ends with the thoughts and feelings of people.
Many things drive human performance, stemming from both people and situations. It starts with sourcing and developing the right people and providing them with high-performance workplaces that are free of common performance barriers. It involves using the best evidence on goal setting, feedback, and reward strategies. We also design performance appraisal systems based on sound measurement principles, and restore faith in them. Overall, our approach to performance addresses people’s deep psychological needs for personal accomplishment and competence.
