A proven way to DISCOVER the “right” talent?

  • A system in place to ENGAGE your people?

  • A method to ADVANCE your top performers focusing on the “right” job-related skills?

  • Metrics to measure PERFORMANCE?

Using one assessment could reveal the answer to one or two of these questions. But you would only see the partial picture.

Multiple sciences progressively reveal more of the entire person — what they do, how they do it and why they do the things they do.

We also embrace a philosophy that measures both the presence and absence of behavior, and acceptance and avoidance.

We use a data pool of millions of individuals collected over several decades to further refine our assessments.

Overview of the SCIENCES

DISC is a universal behavioural model that goes over four separate factors: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance. These four components of DISC create a “behavioural makeup” unique to every individual. Put simply: the DISC assessment measures how a person does what they do. It creates a language around observable behaviour.

12 Driving Forces is an assessment that measures why a person does what they do. It measures the motivation (and strength) behind behaviours, using 6 different motivators. Those motivators are: Knowledge • Utility • Surroundings • Others • Power • Methodologies

These 6 motivators are each divided into two distinct sides, measuring each factor. Based on a continuum, these 12 drivers make up a person’s cluster of Driving Forces.

This assessment was created to manage and develop an individual’s career by identifying their top personal skills, based on how they score on 25 research-based skills required by any job. Each skill is ordered according to its level of development:

1. Well-Developed

2. Developed

3. Moderately developed

4. Needs development.




The Acumen Capacity Index (ACI) report measures how a person thinks or processes information. The ACI report is based on a science called axiology and helps measure your ability to understand people, practical matters/tasks, theoretical/structural matters, and more. In essence the stronger a person’s acumen, the more aware that person is of how biases or blind spots impact one’s ability to address situations.

Emotional intelligence is the ability to sense, understand and effectively apply the power of acumen and emotions to facilitate higher levels of collaboration and productivity. EQ stands for Emotional Quotient. The EQ Assessment is a measure of our emotional intelligence that indicates how well we are able to manage our emotions and impact our relationships with others. The assessment measures self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, social awareness, and social regulation.
