The heart of your business is found in your people. Nothing is more essential to the success of your business than how you grow your people: every current and future employee, manager, supervisor, leader and owner.
The first step to growing your people is understanding the roles within your company. With this critical knowledge, you can then figure out the best people for those roles, improving their overall performance and ultimate success.
Business Success Tools helps you hire the right people based on informed decisions and not well-intended biases. The assessments we use help take mistakes out of the hiring process that are often made from speculation and conjecture. Proprietary tools replace the guesswork with proven science.
The Science of People
Hire the right person for the right job. Assessment results give you proven metrics that increase the predictability of performance and job success.
Some of the processes and tools:
- Proven assessments applied to individual people
- Job Benchmarking tools
- Comparison tools that align individual talent with business needs as well as roles
- Alignment tools that uncover any skill gaps, followed by developing focused plans to create a closer match
- Customized training, coaching, and development for each role that uses a “learn by doing” approach that is effective and practical
We take the difficulty and uncertainty out of your hiring, promotion, and people decisions. Business Success Tools gives you a wide variety of ‘business tools’ to grow your organization by empowering the life force of your business – your people.
Help with the people part of business starts with several tools:

Support services to all assessments include coaching, training, and consulting. We take the hard data and put it to use.
Job Benchmarking enables you to assess what a position requires, not what the person in the position is doing. This is an interactive process that helps to develop, select, retain and manage the right people in the right positions. It results in a clear definition of the specific requirements of the job that can be used for creating job descriptions and recruitment. Read More (pdf)
Selection is the process used to ensure the current or potential employee has the skills needed to meet the job requirements. Specific tools such as DISC are used to accomplish this task. These tools are used in conjunction with the typical hiring process which includes interviews and other company specific requirements.
Now that you’ve selected the right person for the job, all that’s left is having them show up for the first day of work, right? To have a truly successful experience for both the company and the new hire, there is more to it than that. An extension of the hiring process, onboarding is the process of preparing both the new employee and the workplace. Ultimately, successful onboarding leads to improved performance, better employee morale and long-term retention.
People who feel valued by their companies place more value on their work. Development is an essential piece of the equation. A culture of continuous learning fosters commitment and improves productivity. Development helps an organization ensure that the talent of their people is in alignment with the company’s strategy for success.
Executive Coaching is used to improve the performance of both the executive and their team. This improvement has a direct effect on achieving the goals of the company. Coaching can help with improvement of the recruitment process, better management skills and/or effective teams. From job benchmarking and other tools, to professional development, executive coaching helps clarify and achieve the goals set forth by the company.
