Caution: Career Derailment Ahead

Why do even key, talented employees flounder or derail? In the vast majority of cases, career derailments occur because an individual has a psychological blind spot that is all too visible to others.

Hiring By Design, Not By Chemistry

Every new hire will ultimately contribute either to moving your business forward or to holding it back. The acquisition of intellectual capital has quickly become the primary competitive advantage for most companies as they move into the new millenium. So, why handicap your organization's drive to acquire new talent by not exploiting the most advanced technology available for selecting the strongest and best-fit candidates and for avoiding costly selection errors?

Learn from this White Paper how our firm, with its proprietary methodology, can identify critical information about job finalists that most hiring managers are unable to dig out.

Key to this mandate is the design of powerful human performance methods. And, central to this challenge is the re-engineering of your Leadership Development Programs. Learn from this White Paper what the underlying parameters and objectives must be to ensure that your organization achieves its strategic business results.
