BEST interviewing tool ever

This assessment will become the new vetting tool for hiring people and helping applicants answer the question always asked at the end of an interview... “so do you have questions for us?” YES- What will I really be doing?... then determining if it fits your working genius.

Simple and powerful

The working genius model has had the fastest adoption of any assessment or model my team has encountered. Its simplicity is its superpower. Its practical application in day to day settings unlocked my team to better understand themselves and each other

The best tool to get your team to work together

Our team used this tool a few months ago. Since that time, the level of collaboration has increased as it’s become ok to leverage another person’s strengths to get work done. We regularly get report outs in our weekly meeting on how someone else’s genius was used to get things done. This podcast is an excellent companion. Highly recommend.
