We're More Than Just Resumés.


Proficiency is what you put on your resume to help define how you will be valuable on the most practical and day-to-day level. It’s what you’re good at. You can call them skills, you can call them strengths, but you can’t call them useless. They are critical to how you’re useful on a team. If you were a robot, then this would fully define you and how a team could use you. But, you’re not a robot.


Personality is what makes you a non-robot. Personality is complex and beautiful and–like your skills–able to change and re-direct over time. This is hard to measure, but there are a lot of tools out there that can help you understand this facet of you. Knowing this part of you can help you and your team see how you best fit.


Preferences are the things that you respond to either positively or negatively within a culture. Some people work well when they are driven internally rather than externally. Some people prefer having a lot of control, and others are more loosey-goosey. To each, their own. But when each is influencing someone else’s own, then it can get dicey. Knowing what you like, and what you don’t is an essential step in knowing what makes a great team.

For Teams

There are plenty of tools out there to help you find people for your organization. Finding the right person for a task isn’t even the hard part. The hard part is finding the ideal person for the ideal role on the ideal team in the ideal department. Most companies do their best and hope to get lucky. We believe that luck has nothing to do with it.

For Individuals

It’s important to be self-aware. When you know yourself, then you can plan for your future. It’s easy to figure out what you’re good at, and there are plenty of ways to find out what your personality traits are, but it’s difficult to know what environment you would thrive in. And, what environment would thrive by having you in it. We believe that there is a “me” in “team.” You just need to poke around a little.
