Acquire ‘A’ Talent

Align Your Team

Individual talent, though important, is not enough to be competitive in today’s complex work environment. We begin with feedback on how individual preferences from 12 paradoxes impact group dynamics. This enables individual team members to understand how their own behaviors contribute to or obstruct team objectives. From here alignment becomes available.

Engagement is a Shared Responsibility

The research is clear on the impact of engagement on profits, which is such a motivator that many companies spend large sums of money to learn what the corporation should provide to motivate employees. But if the employee doesn’t like their work, external motivators will make no difference. With the right feedback, managers can have empowering conversations with employees to increase engagement immediately.

Generate Succession Solutions

It is one thing to recognize potential in an employee and put that individual on a career path for leadership. The bigger challenge is managing these high potentials through their development and career advancement without losing them to the competition or perhaps worse, keeping them and they fail as leaders. You need decision analytics, internal career planning tools and a talent pool management tool.

Testimonials from Clients

… In recent years it became clear that CEOs did not necessarily bring coaching skills with them into their role, so I brought Pamela Stambaugh in to open our quarterly training session with a presentation on how to coach leaders, and how to coach them to be accountable…. Her presentation was so successful and popular that I continued to have her open our quarterly training programs with that same message…
Ruprecht von Buttlar, VP, Business Creation & Development, CONNECT
As you know I resisted tracking leading indicators for fear of becoming a micromanager and from the self-limiting belief that I did not have time to manage the daily activities of my people. In truth, what has actually happened is my strategic time has been freed up as a result of holding everyone more accountable and my conversations with my staff have become much more focused. This has been particularly helpful in light of the current economic conditions and has better enabled me determine where to cut, where to shore-up and in creating a general culture of accountability within the company.
Shannon Erdell, Past President, TLC Staffing
Pamela is an excellent listener and speaker and has led numerous group meetings that have allowed our organization to achieve the goals of productivity, growth and accountability. Specifically we have organized our development group around a new software that allows for improved communications and accountability.
Gerald S. Brand, Past Principal, Fairfield Residential LLC
Initially when we adopted the HATS system for recruitment, I thought we had the equivalent of a high-end Toyota for hiring. I have learned that I also have the Cadillac for Talent Management!

“….The Harrison Assessment™ and team building experience six months ago continue to yield positive outcomes and guide our team’s actions and communications six months later! It is our goal to have a second dose of Pamela some time in the future to reinforce what we already have gained in team engagement and to raise our performance to the next level.

Shantie Harkisoon, MD, FAAFP, Program Director, NYMC Phelps Family Medicine Residency Program
I have utilized Pamela on several occasions…. I am especially impressed with the Harrison Assessment™ for ensuring that you minimize your hiring mistakes. I have used this over the years, and I can tell you that the quality of my hiring has improved dramatically since working with Pamela. Pamela’s company offers a variety of services that may not be part of a standard HR approach, but she is definitely a value-add resource.

The Harrison Assessments Talent Solution is the single greatest improvement to our organization’s ability to manage its growth in the last year. It creates important, viable, worthwhile conversations we did not have before in the recruitment process. And I did not just fall off the turnip truck! I have had 10 years as an executive recruiter of high-level positions. With the Harrison Assessments Talent Solutions, we are also expanding our thought process about managing people.

It is a mistake to focus solely on recruitment, tie it all into talent management if you want “A” players and you want to avoid “B” players or worse!

We have widely adopted it in one of our three divisions, pushing utilization down through over 16 distinct business units and a second division has added it to their budget for the next fiscal year, as well as the beginnings of usage by various corporate departments such as internal HR. They are clamoring for it based on the internal feedback and excitement.
