Talent Optimization

Maximize the value of your greatest asset.


Top performing companies have clarity of purpose, authentic, high-impact leaders and the right mix of people. We help you elevate your talent potential and inspire growth.

Talent Strategy

Recognizing that it’s the unique synergies of people, from the top of the organization to the front lines, that drive business value, we create actionable talent and team strategies that ignite success. With our systematic yet flexible approach, we start with your organization’s goals and priorities, identify key talent levers and challenges, and recommend the most impactful approaches to optimize performance. Our proprietary model connects all talent strategy elements in order to attract, retain, inspire and align the best-fit team.  And we deliver a focused, prioritized plan that you can implement immediately.

Culture and Engagement

It is widely acknowledged that organizational culture exists and that leaders play a crucial role in driving behavior and performance.  When leaders aren’t actively shaping the organizational culture and modeling the desired behaviors, a “default” culture will inevitably emerge, leaving untapped passion and performance on the table.

We show leaders how to create a healthy organizational culture through a winning combination of mission and values articulation, employee involvement, change management strategies and accountability.  In addition, we review and make recommendations on all HR and talent management programs to ensure they support the desired culture.

“It all came down to employee engagement. It all came down to recognition. It all came down to leadership, which led to every sailor feeling ownership and accountability for the results.  You can ask a team to accomplish a mission, but you can’t order excellence.”

– Mike Abrashoff, Commanding Officer, USS Benfold
