It's time to get the right people in the right seats.

Jim Collins noted in his best-selling book; Good to Great Why Some Companies Make the Leap and Others Don't. The greatest companies all had the ability to get the right people in the right seats.


Sadly, Jim Collins was unable to determine how those great companies managed to consistently hire the best people and ensure they were in the right roles.


Thanks to over 70 years of intense research that was started by Arnold Daniels, we now know that the foundation of a successful hire is a strong job fit based on the individual's fundamental needs.


By leveraging behavioral-based tools, analytics, and interviewing techniques, you can consistently find the best fit between a person’s natural ability and desire to do a specific job.


Yes, we can finally put the right person in the right seat.
