Make the Right People Decisions to Build Teams of Engaged A-Players.

Great people are the foundation of great companies and an aligned, thriving team is a tremendous competitive advantage.

More Science than Art

Some see building great teams as an art. Others, a science.

We’ve found, over decades, that great people-decisions are some art and a lot of science.  And we have seen that almost any leader can learn and apply the right tools and systems, to build teams of A Players.

When 80% to 90% of the leaders and managers in an organization are A Players there’s not much that organization can’t achieve and achieve well.

Getting, growing and keeping A Players is work – and worthwhile.

Build Teams of Engaged A-Players

Our Focus: Three Key Drivers for Amazing Teams and People Decisions

People Strategy

Develop a compelling value proposition to attract and keep the best talent.

Twice the Team

Make the right people decisions to achieve 90% A-Players.

Stronger Leaders

Develop the capability of your team to grow and thrive in their future roles.

Experience helps: Scalable, disciplined people decisions.

You could fill a book with all the theories and models to assess, interview and hire people – some logical, some out there.  We’ve seen and tested them all.

And after years of helping our clients to build team of 90% A-Players, we know that simple data and discipline-based systems lead to consistent results, no matter who leads.

We continually research and test the most impactful tools and strategies for entrepreneurial, high-growth companies, and are grounded in the enduring principles of:

  • The Topgrading™ methodology (Brad Smart)
  • Five Dysfunctions of a Team (Patrick Lencioni)
  • The 7 Hidden Reasons Employees Leave (Leigh Branham)
  • Purpose & Core values work by Jim Collins

I was able to gain personal insights that helped me open up more, as a leader, and really lean into my own “voice at the table”. So many “aha” moments and transformational statements came out of my time.Rebekah Le, CFO, Allied PG
