What We Do

Let us each put in common the best that we have and enrich ourselves with our differences.

– Paul Valery


In order for an individual or teams to grow, self-awareness is important. Our services utilize top of the line assessment tools and surveys that help us understand what motivates a person and how to be more effective both personally and in team environments.

2. Voices®

VOICES® is a Web-enabled 360° feedback system that provides access to the LEADERSHIP ARCHITECT® Library of 67 Competencies, 19 Career Stallers and Stoppers, 26 Clusters and 8 Factors, 7 International Focus Areas, 10 Universal Performance Dimensions, and 356 Behavioral Aspects. You may also use your own items.

A competency-based, research-validated 360° assessment provides a learner (the person receiving 360° feedback) a powerful tool for development and improvement. Critical feedback is a must in stimulating people toward self-improvement, job and career success. The 360° feedback reveals how a learner's job behaviors are perceived by those around him or her and which of these behaviors are considered important for success. In addition, a learner can see how the ratings of others compare to his or her self-ratings.


3. Surveys

What do your clients think about your programs and services? How satisfied are your employees? Should your organization develop a new program?

Rather than resorting to using telepathic powers or mind reading, Growing By Design can assist you in administering a survey. It is a powerful research tool that can deliver the feedback you need in "real-time". You are then able to share the results with members of your team, your clients, and even with survey respondents.
