Talent Optimization

You will only achieve your goals with the right people, strong leaders, high-performing teams, engaged employees, and a people strategy that powers your business strategy.

Align your business and talent strategies to achieve outstanding business results AND build a thriving culture.

Why You Need to Optimize Talent NOW!

Some leaders seem to have a gift for hiring the right people and aligning them to produce great results. But this “gift” isn’t scalable or teachable. Most managers and leaders go through trial and error without much guidance and without the right tools for the job.

Even the most brilliant, leading-edge strategy won’t execute itself. If you are like the CEOs and CHROs I regularly talk with, the greatest threats to their business come from people issues. While some have HR initiatives on the agenda, most companies don’t have a true talent strategy.

Talent optimization provides a framework for understanding yourself, others, and teams and how well they alight to the business strategy so you can take informed action.

Close the gap. Align your business and talent strategies. Achieve outstanding results AND build a thriving company to magnetically attract talent.

  • Design your people strategy to support your business strategy
  • Hire the best people for any position
  • Inspire and engage your workforce
  • Tap into people analytics for business insights

Our model helps you focus on the areas requiring the greatest alignment of talent and business needs. The talent optimization disciplines are all important, but taking on too much at once can dilute results and stress limited resources. We help you target the areas that will bring the greatest impact to your business to meet your current needs and to align with your future vision for growth.

Here are a few of the ways we can work with you to combine research and science-based tools and methods with decades of experience helping build great organizations, leaders and teams.


Create high-performing teams that deliver on time, on budget, every time.

Discover the strengths and gaps for each team and find ways to help them succeed. Top teams seem to magically come together, where the whole becomes greater than the sum of the parts.

Build teams with data, not intuition. Help them to rock results, enjoy the journey and learn along the way. We are passionate about the power of having the right people in the right seats, aligned as top performing teams and would like to show you how.

Discover how to attract and select the right person for every job.

Are you relying on resumes, the usual sources and “gut feeling” to hire people only to learn later they aren’t a fit for their role, the team or your culture? As your company changes and grows, are you sure you are matching up the right people with the right roles? Do you have the right leaders in place?

Building a company of top performers starts with putting the right people in the right positions. Evaluate the behavioral and cognitive characteristics of candidates against job targets to select the best people and build high-performance teams. People with a solid fit to their job, team and company culture are engaged, committed and more likely to perform well. Contact us to learn how to attract, select and retain the right people for each role.

Ignite performance. Develop people.

Do your managers understand their people and know how to develop and inspire them to give their best? Are they able to effectively connect with remote employees and ensure they are accountable for results?

Managers may think they understand people, but they really don’t. Everyone has different needs and preferred ways of working. Insights about each person raises self-awareness and accountability by giving each individual information to manage themselves and workplace interactions. This also strengthens managers to help them to coach, engage and develop people and build high-performing teams, whether in person or remote.

Contact us to learn how to help your leaders and managers understand themselves and their people to solve problems and inspire top performance.


Launch an employee engagement survey to pinpoint ways to strengthen commitment.

A lack of engagement causes turnover, hurts your business and damages your reputation. Even with the best intentions, one bad hire, weak managers or new change can hurt engagement. Don’t guess how your people are feeling. There’s an easy, science-based way to pinpoint risks and strengths and show you where to put your efforts to strengthen the commitment of your people and create the thriving culture you want and need.

Contact us for a no-obligation conversation on how we can help you with research-based tools combined with our rich expertise to show you how to take control and increase engagement across your organization.

What if you could easily tap into tools to hire the right people, engage and retain them, develop your leaders and ignite your teams?

You can and we can show you how.
