"In the 25+ years I've been in the people consulting business, I've had the opportunity to represent some of the industry's most respected products, such as Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and Principle Centered Leadership. I've also worked with clients using numerous assessments and 360-degree surveys.

The predictive, self-management assessments that we now offer as SMART WORK | ASSESSMENTS are, without question, the most valuable tools that I've ever used with my clients. Their incredible predictability, based on over 30 years of normative (not either/or) validation is simply head and shoulders above anything else available today.

Our research has consistently shown that self-management (a set of inherent traits) is the #1 competency required for success in the 21st Century Knowledge Economy. If companies want to understand their "human capital balance sheet" like their financial balance sheets, they will have to use objective people statistics to understand the underlying DNA of their people. Self-directed people, aligned to the right job, are worth their weight in gold.

I like being associated with an assessment that has such a strong foundation, and that has already been proven with more than 8 million completed assessments across numerous industries. Smart Work | Network, Inc. is proud to be a reseller of these assessments from Self Management Group of Toronto, offering them across the United States and throughout the world.
