Getting to Know Your People

The first step to a happier and healthier work environment is getting to know the people that make up that environment, engage the leaders that ultimately drive the strategies, and understand how to create a strong foundation for working together.


Behaviors Assessment

DISC is the most popular and widely used tool to measure human behavior.  Created by William Moulton Marston in 1928, it’s used to determine which of the 4 behaviors you exhibit and how often.  Having coached thousands of people using DISC, we bring our own unique interpretation that goes far beyond the words on the page of your report.  We are also the only provider of DISC assessments in the marketplace fully customized for each unique individual.  Regardless of what position we hold in our company, everyone can benefit from this information.

Commonly used to: Build team cohesion, improve communication, and create strategic alignment.


Motivators Assessment

One of the greatest challenges for leaders today is to truly understand what motivates their teams.  Ironically, many of us have a hard time articulating what we need to be happy in both life and work.  Our 12 Driving Forces assessment takes away the mystery.  Based on the esteemed research of  Eduard Spranger, we can help you understand the “why” behind your actions, and create a more harmonious and effective environment.

Commonly used to: Increase employee engagement, improve culture, and create rewards that really matter to the team


Emotional Intelligence

It surprises many people to know that the very best research today tells us that emotions, not logic, are at the heart of human decision making.  High EQ individuals outperform low EQ 2 to 1.  On average, people with high EQ earn far more money than those with low EQ.  High emotional intelligence can help create authentic happiness in both life and work.  Its no wonder virtually all of our clients measure the collective EQ of their organizations.

Commonly used to: Develop leaders, engage teams, coaching, and succession planning.


Business Acumen

Easily one of the most comprehensive assessments on the market today, TriMetrix HD (or Acumen) can pinpoint the strengths, opportunities for growth, and potential “success blockers” for even the most seasoned professionals.  It takes a deep look at behavior, soft skills, motivation, and the thought process of each individual.  Many of our best coaching success stories began with an Acumen assessment.

Commonly used to: Assist in executive coaching, selection and the development of high potential employees.

If not managed properly, stress can be an incredible burden in both our personal and work life.  Our Stress Assessment can pinpoint the exact causes of stress in individuals and teams, and create strategies to quickly return to a healthy and productive environment.  There is also a leadership version of this assessment to help identify stress triggers and prevention.

Commonly used to: Increase morale, identify root causes of stress, facilitate conversations to begin creating a plan that addresses the causes and to help improve employee performance and productivity.


Organizational Development – 360 Surveys

One of the most powerful tools for an organization is to be able to “see” through the eyes of their employees.  XQ can custom-tailor a survey that uncovers the perceptions and general engagement level of your team.

Whether you want to understand the effectiveness of a leader, gauge the attitude towards a particular product or service, or uncover how new strategies are being received, an XQ 360 survey is the simplest and most effective way to be fully aware as a leadership team.

Commonly used to: Help organizations improve products or services, create or augment policies, and achieve complete employee and customer delight.



Sales Skills Index

The way companies sell products and services has gone through dramatic change in recent years.  Many are beginning to simply accept high turnover and low productivity as a reality – but there is a solution!  Sales training and assessments fail because they are one-size-fits all, and don’t take into account your unique environment and culture.

The Sales Skills Index is an objective analysis of an individual’s understanding of the strategies required to sell successfully in any sales environment.

Commonly used to: Determine if sales staff members understand the sales process, how they compare against top sales performers, and if they have the ability to sell. Used in sales training, team and leadership coaching, and as an all-in-one training guide.



Talent Management Plus

Talent Management Plus (TMP) is every HR professional’s best friend, and its the only scientific and assessment based applicant tracking system on the market.  The true magic is in the benchmarking and job matching system – it looks at whether or not the person will be fulfilled in the open position based on behavior, motivation, and soft skills required to be successful.

Commonly used to: Pre-screen and pre-rank candidates based on their assessments — making it clear which candidates are matched to the job in one complete system.

TMP features include:

  • A daily email summary of applicants who match the open position
  • Pre-screening interview questions to narrow applicants
  • Search, filtering and candidate comparison capabilities
