Success Stories

"There's plenty of people I can hire that don't care if they work for me or the guy down the street. I'd rather have somebody who's really engaged and helping my organization be successful. So, if I help someone else be successful, they're a lot more interested in helping me be successful."

So, that fact alone generally indicates that somebody is more willing to take advantage of the opportunities that they receive… Our primary focus is determining if a candidate has an orientation towards personal growth and a willingness to respond to coaching."
