Discovery 360° Feedbackassessments are powerful tools for helping individuals improve, grow and develop their soft (interpersonal) skills. When a 360° Feedback report is returned the ineffective soft skills are made aware.  The assessment shows an individual what others think their performance is versus what it should be. The understanding of others’ perception will increase an individual’s drive for success, when they are given the information in a constructive manner such as the Discovery 360° Feedback.  This assessment is used as a starting point for a developmental process.  The follow-up strategies provide results that ensure improvement and success.  Information given is strictly confidential and the final reports are detailed with interpreted guidelines.

T.E.A.M.S.™  assessment is used to measure the strengths and weaknesses of your team players.  Each team has its own unique impact.  T.E.A.M.S. provides a complete assessment of the strengths and weaknesses before implementing team building training.
