Talent Optimization is a four-part discipline that details how to align your company’s business strategy (please remove link, I can’t use it) with your talent strategy for optimal results. At the core of Talent Optimization is the collection, analysis, and application of people data garnered with PI. The four aptitudes we help you assess are:

  1. Diagnose: First, using PI®, we’ll measure critical people data like behavior, cognition, employee engagement, job performance, team organization and culture, and employee sentiment. And then we’ll analyze the data, and determine the best course of action.
  1. Design: Most companies throw together employees without considering the individuals which is why results suffer. An intentional approach provides greater success. We’ll show you how to use PI® to evaluate and design your leadership team – all teams – so you can understand the team’s dynamics and establish your preferred culture.
  1. Hire: We’ll show you how to use PI data insights to hire top talent and build high-performing teams inclusive of defining job requirements, predicting new hire and team dynamics, and address cultural fit. The ability to hire well eliminates expensive misfires and sets the stage for organizational success.
  1. Inspire: In most companies, employees lack the necessary people data insights to work together at their best – they inadvertently create communications problems and conflicts. We’ll she you how PI uses people data to drive important employee-oriented activities that support the critical relationship between an employee and their manager, in addition to career pathing and maintaining organizational culture.

Using the Predictive Index and the Talent Optimization process eliminates bias while expediting and streamlining multiple talent systems such as job design, recruiting, screening, hiring, team building, selection/promotion, conflict resolution, overall communication, performance management, and coaching.


We’ll help you:

  • Predict performance from current staff and candidates you’re considering hiring
  • Gain job-fit insights
  • Design accurate job specs that reflect the exact behavioral and cognitive needs required for success
  • Place people in positions where they’ll excel, increasing retention and saving your company from hiring “misfires” thus saving precious time and money

  • Build stronger, smarter and more cohesive teams utilizing your team behaviors and skill sets that complement each other
  • Understand where talent gaps exist between people and positions and how to fill them, driving more successful business outcomes
  • Provide effective coaching and communication to drive work-place self-awareness and have frictionless interactions that maximize employee engagement and great work
  • Eradicate sales slumps, poor management issues, and poor morale – we know people don’t leave companies, they leave bad managers.
