One of our latest blog posts highlighted the inevitable success that results when you align the right people with the right strategy.
We believe that by understanding that each person has a distinct talent you will frame how they will approach their interests and their work. We also believe that the greater a person’s ability to match his talent with his work, the better his attitude and by his extension productivity will be. In our experience, most organizations don’t encourage the time and effort it requires to provide this advantage, and we can provide some advice on how to make this happen.

It’s imperative that business owners and leaders take every opportunity to know who their employees are and what they want from their lives and work. Such understanding leads to high workplace morale and high employee retention.
We’ve put our years of Human Resources experience to work by designing a complete interviewing process that assesses all three parts of the mind; for key roles we profile preferences, natural instincts, thinking abilities, and overall job fit.
We’ve said it before -- in fact we said it in a recent blog post -- but we have to say it again because we truly believe that it’s the key to your business success: your people are your most important asset. We have seen time and again that the right people matched to the right roles, aligned with the right strategies, yields maximum productivity and profitability.
Research studies have shown that 73% of companies that have a clearly outlined strategy have managed to achieve their growth goals. Imagine how much smoother the processes could be and how much greater a percentage would succeed if strategy and workforce development were in sync. By tending only to strategy or only to employee development, businesses fail to fire on all cylinders and reach peak performance.
