Al uses proven assessments and interviewing techniques to assign people to the roles and missions that are most congruent with their unique gifts and values, thus boosting productivity by shifting workplace behavior from merely “doing things” to actually getting things done.
Combining these methods with structured learning exercises, Al’s work with groups and teams promotes successful business outcomes by lowering the behavioral barriers to open communication and willing cooperation.
When an organization requires breakthrough innovation to achieve preeminence and gain market share, Al knows how to identify and nurture the champion conceptualizers and communicators within a company who are best equipped to generate the ideas and drive the changes that will get them there.
