The Hogan Development Survey (HDS)

This report describes qualities that emerge in times of increased stress & can disrupt relationships, damage your reputation & derail your chances of success. By assessing dark-side personality, you can recognize & mitigate performance risks before they become a problem . . .

Peak Performance Pyramid

Imagine training your key people in the skills they need, then the performance you hoped for never arrives. We often see HRD initiatives like this, and to overcome this ineffectiveness is the reason we developed the Peak Performance Pyramid. Using this tool we look at all the elements needed for peak performance. The Individual, the Assets available, the Actions taken, and the Environment within which these actions occur. Aligning all these allows peak performance to emerge.
