Adventure is at the heart of our approach and core to every client engagement. We believe that life should be lived as an adventure. In every segment of our business, we encourage leaders to stretch outside of their comfort zones and be bold. We believe that it is outside of the comfort zone where the magic really happens. This is where new learning occurs, where new behaviors are tried, and where new successes are celebrated. It is only in adventure that most people succeed in discovering and improving themselves. After all, if you don’t get uncomfortable leaving your comfort zone, then you haven’t really left it, have you?
Our assessment practice provides a comprehensive look at individual leaders within an organization. When critical leadership decisions need to be made, having accurate insight into leadership talent enables organizations to make these decisions more confidently and intentionally.

Our development practice provides pragmatic tools for building great leaders at all levels of the organization. Our interactive and engaging style generates learning in an environment that allows new behaviors to be tested and ideas to be challenged. Our world-class business simulation is a standout program not to be missed.
“Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.” ~ Gail Devers
The goal of our coaching practice is to be the guide on the side, not the sage on the stage. Our GUIDE coaching methodology allows us to assist leaders in reaching their full potential. Equally important is our ability to teach leaders how to be coaches to build alignment and engagement in their own organizations.
“If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine. It’s lethal.” ~ Paulo Coelho
Our singular goal is to provide our clients with talented HR resources who can step into a contract position, demonstrate initiative, quickly make an impact, and add tremendous value. Providing an extra pair of hands (or feet) to fill your gap and relieve some of the stress is our number one objective.
“Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt

The success we achieve can largely depend on how well we understand ourselves and those with whom we interact. Much of our time is spent working with others to accomplish objectives. People skills are one of the most critical we can develop. The Birkman Method® is a scientifically developed, multi-dimensional assessment designed to help you achieve more at work and at home. It integrates behavioral, motivational and occupational data together to predict behavior and work satisfaction across situations. The Birkman Method is the personality assessment for improving people skills and aligning roles and relationships for maximum productivity and success.

DiSC is a powerful assessment tool that is easy to understand and simplifies the complexity of human behavior. DiSC relies on a model of human behavior that helps us understand why and how people say and do things based on their style tendencies. Once people understand these behavioral styles, they can gain new and valuable insights about themselves, others, and situations, which can then help them to best determine how to respond and adapt to specific people and situations in order to work more effectively with individuals and teams. We are also trained facilitators of “The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team” which is an assessment-based program that focuses on the five pillars of teamwork: Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability, and Results. Grounded in “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team” model from international best-selling author Patrick Lencioni, participants learn how to maximize these behaviors to become a more cohesive and productive team, as well as understand how each team member’s unique personality style brings value to the team’s overall success.

The Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument (HBDI) is a methodology designed to help thinkers, teams and organizations better benefit from the thinking preferences available to them. It acknowledges that while different tasks require different mental processes, and different people prefer different kinds of thinking, organizations will get better results when they can strategically leverage the full spectrum of thinking available. Applying Whole Brain® Thinking means being able to fully leverage one’s own preferences, stretch to other quadrants when necessary, and adapt to and take advantage of the preferences of those around you to improve performance and results.

The four core assessments, the Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI), Hogan Development Survey (HDS), Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI), and Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory (HBRI) measure normal personality characteristics, career derailment risks, core value drivers, and cognitive style, respectively. This multi-dimensional approach to personality assessment provides incredible insight that can serve as a powerful tool throughout the employee lifecycle. Fueled by these powerful assessments, the Hogan reports are designed to address a range of needs, from selection to high potential identification to executive-level development.
