Assessments

At GSC, we have been using assessments for more than 25 years and have a deep understanding of what information assessments will provide and what they will not. We also understand how to use assessments to enhance the hiring, development and culture of the organization. We are certified assessment professionals with a significant variety of assessment resources available.

Whether gaining insight into yourself, or into others, it is critical to get the best information possible. This information is the basis for important decisions. The adage, “better data, better decisions”, is true most of the time. When considering the complex human dynamics in the workplace, there are a limited number of ways to gain insight:  Self-reflection, asking others, interviews, looking at paper (resume, applications, performance evaluations), working with someone for 1-2 years, assessments.

Value

Employee assessments provide greater insight and clarity into many aspects of selection, development, and performance. We use a variety of industrial psychology tools and assessments and that insight enhances:

The Selection of New Talent

(including onboarding)

The Creation of Development Plans

(Individual, Leader, Team, Organizational)

Measuring the drivers of individual and team success

The determination of “bench strength” within the organization

Feedback Sessions

All employee assessments come with a professional feedback process. The recent proliferation of “do it yourself” assessments are concerning, and a potential liability. Goodner Strategic Consulting provides understanding and feedback from certified professionals.​

We utilize only proven and validated assessments. We never recommend using a single assessment, instead, we customize assessment packages for specific needs, considering positional, team, organizational and culture FIT©. We then provide professional feedback to ensure that the data is understood in context and application.

Emotional Intelligence (EI or EQ), according to recent articles in Harvard Business Review, is the key to professional success. It is the “currency of connection”. The level of EQ an individual determines their ability and capacity to connect with others in the workplace in an effective and productive manner.
