Straightline Methodology


Valid, reliable, tools that give you powerful, proven, scientific, measurable results.

Predictive Index Methodology


Our methodology leverages science, technology, and knowledge transfer to help you reach maximum velocity toward your business objectives. Once an assessment is completed, the answers are interpreted according to a four-factor personality model. Based on the respondent's results, we can predict overall workplace behaviors. 

Our methodology uses knowledge transfer to help address talent acquisition, talent development, change management, and growth strategy initiatives in a business setting. In addition to our flagship Behavioral Assessment, Straightline Consulting also utilizes a  Job Assessment and Cognitive Assessment in evaluating your talent to determine their best fit in the organization based on their natural skills and behaviors. 

PI Basics


There are significant financial consequences of making a poor hire, including recruiting costs, lost productivity, poor performance, and low morale, opportunity loss, and potential customer loss. No organization can afford to make a bad hire or lose that hire before their potential is realized. Talent acquisition is the critical process of finding, assessing, and acquiring talent to meet the company’s goals. It involves pre-employment testing and also includes the essential onboarding process once the hire is made.


Our Behavioral Assessment and Cognitive Assesment take the guesswork out of the selection process by defining the behavioral requirements of the job and identifying the natural behavioral drives of the candidate. This allows for a fit/gap analysis between the position's job pattern and a candidate's behavioral pattern. The Behavioral Assessment also gives critical insights into the candidate’s training and talent management needs to support the onboarding process.

Whether it is leadership coaching for an employee to meet their individual goals, succession planning to ensure long-term success, or team building to build trust and improve internal communication, leaders today must be diverse and innovative to get the job done.
