We are Master Distributors of Self Management Group predictive assessments in the United States and elsewhere. Dr. John Marshall and his team in Toronto have statistical data for over 35 years and more than 20 million users from over 2,500 companies in 34 languages that provide enormous predictive data for corporate talent management for hundreds of pre-profiled jobs and industries. 

These unique normative assessments with criterion validity, which we call self-management science, allow companies to build statistically validated 'templates' to compare and contrast high performers from moderate and low performers using the company's own empirical performance data.  We have shown that, using this data, companies can predict the 'profiles' of future superior performers in their culture, working with their managers in their facilities and therefore, select only employees predisposed to be superior performers as new hires or new leaders.

What is Self-Management?

Self-Management is the level of initiative (measured by Enterprising Orientation) that individuals can and will invest in pursuit of results that are important to them (Achievement Orientation) in an environment that adequately balances freedom and structure (Independence Orientation).

Therefore, when an organization's job opportunity is aligned with the candidate's talents (inherent and learned) and effort (habits of thought and behavior) then the employee is predicted to be high performing.

Unfortunately, most managers spend all of their management time attempting to motivate low performers.   Our research has found that the organization is much better off letting the low performer go.  It is better for the company AND the employee. You can't teach a pig to sing. You just make the pig mad.
