Talent Optimization and Predictive Index
Leaders are facing unprecedented challenges to their businesses and organizations. Some are pivoting strategy as a result of market conditions, mergers and acquisitions, disruption, or other significant forces. Others are grappling with right-sizing or reconfiguring their workforce. And still others are struggling to gain alignment on key business priorities and find the right talent to act.
Times of uncertainty require flexibility, nimbleness, and resilience in ways that are calling upon people in all types of organizations to dig deep and assume new ways of working. At times like this, we find that gaps often exist between the strategy and the talent inside your organization to implement. Using Predictive Index (PI) behavioral analytics—coupled with our expertise in organizational design, culture, strategy, coaching, and leadership development—we work with clients in a talent optimization frame, designed to align their strategy and the people to execute it.
