HigherEchelon offers a wide variety of human capital c training services, and the common thread woven among them all is assessments. Peter Drucker stated, “If you cannot measure it, you cannot improve it.” To truly see yourself and determine a way forward—either individually or organizationally—you need sound, validated processes and measures to identify your current state.

HigherEchelon does not start with solutions in mind, rather we begin each project with a front-end analysis to understand the organizational needs, current and desired performance states, and the performance gap between the two. These can involve formal interviews, focus groups, as well as specific industry accepted assessment instruments where appropriate.

Additionally, we assess our progress towards your goals at each step of our journey with you. HigherEchelon utilizes pre/post evaluations, hands on exercises to capture real-time metrics of learning and performance, after action reviews, and surveys to solicit feedback for continued improvement of our measures and our personnel. We are proficient with vendor developed tools and have a suite of in-house assessments for learning, personal behavior changes, and organizational results so you can clearly see our impact and worth. With access to numerous validated assessments, a few of the more common assessments and certifications we utilize include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Assessment (CBA) – HE partners with by Dr. Paul Squires, founder and head of Applied Skills & Knowledge© to provide assessments that measure skills used in eight leadership situations: teamwork, communication and networking, work-life balance, innovation, business acumen, quality focus, customer focus, and project management.
