Employee Pre-Screening

If your organization does not have a plan in place to help decide which applicants to advance forward to the next steps in your hiring process let Talent Focus Consulting help!  We assist our clients in reducing hiring risk in a quick cost effective manner that will help to answer these vitally important questions:

*Can this applicant be trusted?

*Is this applicant drug free?

*Is this applicant dependable?

*Will this applicant be a long-term, hard-working employee?

Conflict Management

Teams in a workplace naturally consist of a unique group of individuals with their own personal styles, abilities…and personalities.  Sometimes a leader needs outside assistance if clashes or conflict arise in an organization.  Conflict that is negatively effecting performance, moral, employee engagement and ultimately your bottom line can fester and become destructive.  We have tools to help participants improve self-awareness around conflict behaviors.  Team members will learn to curb destructive behaviors so that conflict can become more productive, ultimately improving workplace relationships and results.  The methods we deploy will teach members of the team how to effectively respond to uncomfortable and unavoidable challenges of conflict in the workplace.   They will discover communication strategies when engaging in productive conflict with colleagues.

Customer Service Improvement

If you have front facing employees that are directly in touch with your clients and customers every day it makes good business sense to have a plan in place to ensure those employees are suited to represent your company.  Hiring someone who is not a good fit for your service position can lead to lost revenue and the potential damage to the organization’s reputation not to mention lost productivity, and can negatively effect moral.  Talent Focus Consulting can help!  We can show you the best way to reveal if an individual is a fit for your client service positions starting with selection for the position.  We can also customize the solution for your industry and model the specific position based on your unique standards for service.  Our tools will measure how well a person fits a specific role with your guidance and offers an objective look at standard customer service behavior tendencies of each individual such as trust, tact, empathy, focus, flexibility and conformity.  Our tools can be used pre-hire or for development of your customer or client services team.

Succession Planning

Does your company have a plan in place that allows for upward mobility for your employees, or opportunities for them to move to other areas of the organization where their talents align?  At Talent Focus Consulting we offer validated assessment as part of our succession planning service offering.  Having a game plan firmly in place to account for different scenarios requires a lot of forward thinking.  Having a pulse on the skills, talents and competencies of your individual employees and management team is an integral and valuable piece to that puzzle. All combined in a “play book” on each individual gives our clients the advantage of being able to not only help match an employee to a new open position within their organization but also to match them with a specific manager, a specific team and even give you the best match to 1 position/several employees and or several employees/one position.
