An Assessment to Improve Profits, Communication, and Effectiveness

Are you a small business owner looking to:

  • Reduce staff turnover, conflict, and stress among team members?
  • Improve your profits, communication, and efficiency?
  • Better understand the strengths and weaknesses of your team?
  • Hire the right team members?
  • Better engage employees by understanding what motivates and drives them?

Disengaged Employees Affect Your Bottom Line

Disengaged employees are estimated to cost the U.S. between $450 billion – $550 billion, while companies with highly engaged workforces outperform their peers by 147 percent in earnings per share.

Challenges among teams can occur when people’s talents and skills are not leveraged for the right positions. When this happens, conflict can occur, communication stops, and ROI is compromised.
