"The array of products and services that's available to help an organization grow its Topgrading skills is extraordinary. It makes it not only relatively easy, but actually a pleasure."
We have created a wealth of Topgrading products, tools, services and training to assist companies as they strive to create great teams and winning strategies based around hiring and promoting "A Players" and eliminating staggeringly expensive mis-hiring decisions. To make these offerings easy to understand, we've broken them into five different categories as shown below.
1. Workshops & Speeches – This area contains the latest information about our regularly scheduled public workshops; how to schedule an internal (onsite) workshop for your team; various speeches by Dr. Brad Smart and his team; information about our "Train-the-Trainer" program, and even information about becoming a Certified Topgrading Trainer.
2. Consulting Services – Topgrading, Inc. (formerly Smart & Associates, Inc.) is a premier consulting organization with profession team members who provide "second opinion" interviews of candidates for hire or promotion, perform executive coaching with C-suite executives, conduct Topgrading workshops, and generally consult with companies to help them implement Topgrading.
3. Topgrading Books - Beginning with Dr. Smart's first version of Topgrading (the definitive reference on hiring) that's being released in a completely revised Version 3 in August of 2012, we have created multiple books about Topgrading. You may click on any of the titles below to jump to a specific listing and learn more.
5. The Topgrading Snapshot – This graphical picture ("snapshot") of a person's career, generated by the Topgrading Career History Form, which is now the cornerstone of the family of Topgrading Online Solutions products, is simply the best hiring tool available on the planet. Candidates complete the Topgrading Career History Form that has a powerful "truth serum" and requests detailed career information including (honest) boss ratings, (true) reasons for leaving, and full compensation history. When candidates click Send you get the career information but also the Topgrading Snapshot, a multi-color, single page picture of the person's career, making it quick and easy to eliminate or keep candidates. You also get the famous Topgrading Interview Guide, auto-populated with 100% of the candidate information from the Career History Form.
