TalentSage TS360 Assessments

Our tools, assessments, and interventions are based on science and a practical understanding of your unique business needs, coupled with a deep understanding of the psychology of organizational behavior.

Each TalentSage 360° Assessment provides you with the opportunity to customize it to meet the unique needs of your organization.

Step 1- Build your assessment
Choose the questions to be included in your assessment. We provide you with a list of core competencies and questions, and then you can select your items from this list or provide us with any additional competencies or questions you would like to have included. We will customize create the assessment for your organization.

Step 2- Identify those to be assessed
Identify the individuals you would like to be assessed and provide us with their names and e-mail addresses. We send them an e-mail describing how to complete the assessment.

Step 3- Raters complete the assessment
Once the participants have been notified about the assessment, they nominate raters who have knowledge of their performance in their current position --typically supervisors, peers and direct reports. The raters are provided a link to the assessment via e-mail.

Step 4- Reminders
We send periodic reminders will be sent to raters who have not yet completed the assessment.

Step 5- Reports
On the due date we generate reports for the participants. The reports can be customized with your corporate logo.

Step 6- Optional Follow Up Assessment
TalentSage also offers a follow-up assessment. The report for this will show results for the initial assessment as well as the follow-up assessment so participants can track their results over time.


Additional Services

In addition to 360-degree assessments, TalentSage also offers some additional services if desired.

Follow-Up Assessments
We also offer a follow-up assessment. The report for this will show results for the initial assessment as well as the follow-up assessment so participants can track their results over time.

Board of Governors Chair Leadership Assessments
These assessments are essentially an internal 360 focused on the leadership attributes of the chairperson of a non-profit board of governors.  They tend to be highly customized based on the underlying purpose(s) of the non-profit organization.   Because feedback from each board member is being solicited, the process can also be used to survey the breadth of skills those board members believe that they bring to the non-profit organization. 

Group Dynamics Assessments
Talent Sage is developing a 360 assessment process aimed at identifying the dynamics of a given group and then offering feedback about how the group as a whole could improve its performance, based on current peer-reviewed organisational behaviour research.  We expect this new 360 assessment process to become available in the Spring of 2015.

Coaching Services
We have a large network of highly trained coaches who are available to provide feedback sessions once the 360-degree assessments are complete. This process can be in a group context or one-on-one coaching sessions with individuals.
