Hiring Testimonials for The DISC Wizard:

“After a couple of bad hiring experiences and the consequent frustration accompanying them, I knew something needed to change.  Partnering with Nancy Roberts and following her approach to define my needs has paid off dividends!.  Nancy helped me to develop a benchmark of traits and characteristics that the best candidates would possess and then helped me to understand how each candidate compared to that benchmark.  Using Nancy’s tools, I found someone who matched our benchmark perfectly.  Our General Manager, Todd, is a great fit for the business and will be here for the long term.”

~Johanna Ames, President, Ames Linen Service, HLAC Accredited

“We have been benefiting from the DISC Wizard’s consultation for a long time and have had very accurate results. One in particular – your analysis showed that this one candidate had the potential to become very frustrated and would ultimately voluntarily terminate employment. We thought we could manage through the situation, however, we could not and the employee quit due to the stress around the job.”

~ David J. Cecere, Executive VP, Tompkins Insurance Agencies, Inc., Batavia, NY

“I’d like to share how one of your profiles was proved to be more effective than a headhunter who sent a General Manager to a client touting a “perfect fit.” My company was called in to evaluate the operation several months after the hiring of the GM.  The GM’s shortcomings were quickly realized and a profile was completed to substantiate the misfit.  The GM was reassigned and the headhunter refunded the $7,000 fee based on the strength of your profile.  The headhunter was so impressed by the system that he inquired about using it in his service.  If you visit our website, you will see that your profiles are part of the services offered to my clients.”

~ Sam Garofalo, Owner, Technical Consulting, Syracuse, NY

“We used the DISC Wizard’s hiring process to hire for our Customer Support Trainer position.  Fast-forward one and a half years later, and the two candidates it helped us select are among the top Trainers that we have, and they have fit perfectly into the role.  Now that’s success!”

~ Dave Finger, VP of Customer Technical Services, Pictometry International Corp., Rochester, NY

“Given our previous experience of hiring against the information in one of your benchmarks, I’ve now instructed our VP of Sales to pay more than the usual attention to the data we discover in this process.  If we had followed that before, we could have saved ourselves six months of frustration, lost productivity and thousands of dollars.”

~ Chuck Finzer, Former President, Total Identity Group, Rochester, NY

“We did indeed offer the supervisor position to the employee we assessed last month and she is doing a great job.  She’s also much happier in this new position…it’s a much better fit for her.  Not only has she commented on this, but many other co-workers have even passed along great compliments.  So…you could say it’s going very well!  We really appreciate your insight and help in making this decision.  Thanks again for your help.”

~ Andrea L. Holland, Operations Manager, ExecuScribe, Inc., Rochester, NY

“As part of the work we did to create a Production Manager benchmark, we had to come up with Key Accountabilities for the job.  This exercise was very enlightening.  I got to see how my current Production Managers view the job…and there were some interesting differences.  It helped us all to understand the position better.

~ Mike Uriz, Former COO, Gulf Coast Laundry, Gulfport, MS
