Leveraging Strengths To
Keep the Team Leaning In

Our services

Climate Assessments and Engagements

Leveraging appropriate surveys and diagnostic tools, we help identify and implement solutions to improve individual, team, and organizational performance. Research shows that better organizational climates - which is different from culture and easier than culture to change - increase motivation and boost performance by as much as 30%.

Program and Process Improvement Engagements

Conducting quantitative and qualitative organizational studies and reviews, we help assess performance, identify barriers to optimal performance, develop customer-specific recommendations based on the unique organizational culture and relevant benchmarks, and support implementation with appropriate change management strategies.

Executive and Leadership Development

Leveraging the experience and perspectives of our former federal senior managers and executives, we offer engaging and experience-based training and development programs that support leaders in addressing their most pressing challenges. Services include leadership assessment (e.g., 360, Leadership Style inventory, Birkman, Strengths Finder), customized training solutions, and individual and team coaching.

Temporary Staffing

Leveraging our expansive network and highly competitive benefits packages, we attract, screen, seamlessly onboard, and retain employees who have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to contribute on Day 1. This results in temporary placements of highly motivated and engaged contract support staff who are ready, willing, and able to deliver the desired results.
