Hiring & Selection Testing

Job interviews, reference checks, and resumes are only part of a comprehensive hiring process. They rarely shed light on how candidates will perform and work with others once the "shine has worn off" and they have settled into their job. 


By integrating reputable, reliable, and effective psychometric tools (assessments) into your hiring processes, your organization is better equipped to understand:


1. Can this candidate do this job?

2. Will they be engaged in this work?

3. Are there any personality "red flags?"

4. Do they have management potential?

5. Can they succeed in a sales role? 


Other traits that are related to specific job roles, including customer focus, conscientiousness, and composure under pressure can also be effectively determined when tools are used with an experienced specialist. For information about specific tools utilized, click on Tools in the menu above.

1-on-1 Consulting & Advising

Do you (or your organization) have a need for professional advising, career development, leadership growth, or management support? Dr. Klein creates custom 1-on-1 programs based on in-depth assessment processes that identify strengths, work and communication style, blindspots, and personality traits. 


Applying this data to short and long-term goals and current challenges, is key. This is where the need to have personal accountability and face roadblocks becomes critical. These 1-on-1 programs are provided in-person and virtually via telephone or online (e.g Zoom, Skype).


While training classes, books, TED talks, and blogs can introduce concepts and inspire action, for most of us, significant change only happens when our unique situations and needs are understood and addressed.


Topics addressed include:

  • Change and transition
  • Interpersonal conflict
  • Career planning
  • Family business dynamics & employment
  • Performance obstacles
  • Managing your manager
