Individual assessments are central to all our work

Our focus is about helping you solve your people challenges, not just selling you another assessment. STM assessments provide information about which candidate to hire or promote, pinpoint precise areas for improvement, and give us insight into whether or not an individual is open to coaching and development. STM assessments can also accurately predict who has the capacity to successfully work remotely and who will need more hand-holding and closer management attention. We believe people are the most important ingredient for your business or organization’s success, and the best way to take your organization to the next level begins with knowing your people and yourself.

STM’s database contains information on over 15,000 people from every level of employment over many different industries. We have 60 years of combined experience in coaching, leadership development and training, performance management, and recruiting. All that data and experience is applied to every solution we develop for our clients, and it all begins with an individual assessment.

“STM has built profiles on exactly what a rockstar is in any position you can imagine.”

–Drew McLellan
Agency Management Institute (AMI)

  • STM Assessments are Different
    DISC, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, and most other commercially available assessments only measure one aspect of a person: how they communicate. Behaviors are important, but they don’t explain values, motivators, attitudes, soft skills, or energy and drive for performance. STM’s assessments measure all that and more. STM’s assessments are precise and predictive of how people will perform in a specific business culture, in a particular role, and how they will interact with managers, clients, and colleagues. It’s not possible to obtain this information with one-dimensional behavior or “personality” assessments.
  • Ideal for Hiring or Promotion Selection
    Assessments of job or promotion candidates ensure a good fit to your organization’s culture, predict how well the job candidates will perform, and determine how easy it will be to develop their full potential through mentoring and training.
  • Highlight Areas for Improvement
    Individual assessments may highlight areas for performance, management, or system deficiencies and can be useful for coaching, development, adjusting roles, or changing assignments.
“The team at STM are the masterminds behind the candidate assessments that we use in our hiring process. Their analysis has been instrumental to our staffing and retention for many years.”

–Donnie Broxson

Our Process

The STM Culture & Management Study combines the individual reports of your senior management team and those who you are grooming for leadership. The result is a candid and specific description of your organization’s culture, management, and communication styles which becomes the benchmark for all our work with your company. You can use this information to make strategic decisions about your organization and the direction you want to move. It also provides objective information to promote your employer brand and attract top talent to fit your particular needs.

  • In-Depth Analysis
    Our process begins with assessing your current leaders, providing 97 unique metrics per individual, and covering behaviors, motivators, competencies, talent, attitudes, energy, and drive. We can also assess your next generation management team to provide insight into their potential and the future direction of the business.
  • Practical and Actionable Information
    We don’t just give you the assessment results, we generate a comprehensive report, unique to each and every client, documenting specifics on why some of your people are more successful in their positions than others and where you may have gaps in your team. STM’s years of business experience, assessment data, and understanding of the plans you have for your business are all considered to create workable improvement strategies.
  • Solution Development
    Using the assessment data and team analysis, we frame a picture of your people, culture, management, and communication styles and help you decide the best path to take in order to get the most of out of yourself and your people.
  • Continuous Improvement
    We guide you through the solutions implementation process, proposing adjustments when needed, to ensure improved profits and retention as well as fewer people challenges.

STM has the tools, knowledge, and experience to solve your people challenges. Call or email STM today to evaluate your team.
