Are you flipping a coin for talent? Have you selected executives or attorneys who were a poor fit with your organizational culture? Have you hired people who didn't work out or lost a good employee because they needed more challenge from their work?
Working Resources is a leadership consulting and executive coaching services company that works primarily with companies and professional service firms including law and accountancy firms that want to select and develop emotionally intelligent leaders. A great number of the organizations that we serve are in the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley. We also work with a number of individual professional clients seeking executive coaching or career coaching including lawyers, accountants and company leaders across various industries.
If you are like most organizations, you have selected people who lack requisite emotional and social intelligence competencies. It has cost your organization a great deal of money and caused undue distress and wasted time for everyone involved.
Your hiring decisions can have a powerful impact on your bottom line. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, 30% of business failures are due to poor hiring decisions. When you select and develop emotionally intelligent people you will:
- Build Effective Teamwork
- Learn Effective Team Communication Skills
- Develop Good Leadership Skills
- Improve Leadership Qualities
- Decrease Interpersonal Conflict
- Increase Engagement
- Retain Committed Employees
Selecting and developing top talent is the key to your talent management success. If you want to build a company or firm where people love to work you have to know how to select, assess, coach, engage and retain great people. Great companies and managers start with optimistic, change-resilient, and committed people whose values fit the workplace culture. Keeping great people involves creating a healthy work environment where people can use all their knowledge, creativity, and skills.
We provide psychological assessments and personality assessments for pre-employment psychological screening that helps predict success on the job. Most new hires don’t work out because of a lack of technical skill. The problem is usually in the personal/interpersonal competency area. We assist you in hiring top performers that are a great fit with your company culture and developing employees to their fullest potential.
Developing leadership competency models is the foundation of a strategic talent management program. We help companies design and manage their succession planning processes and leadership development programs to ensure a pipeline of high performing leaders to support your business strategy.
Our executive coaching firm utilizes a wide variety of assessments in our leadership development and leadership coaching work with senior executives and upper level managers. International Coach Federation (ICF) Master Coach (PCC) certification.
