The firm's thirty plus years' experience with and credentialing to use a variety of assessments ensures we can customize and choose the best tool or combination of tools to precisely fit your needs. Our primary focus is to help you hire better and promote better by offering empirical data to aid in making your decision. Our extensive organizational experience ensures that you have the best assistance possible for making decisions regarding coaching, selection, succession planning, and leadership development. Just a few of the assessments we are certified to use include Hogan Assessment Systems, the California Psychological Inventory, EQi 2.0, the Watson Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal.

360° Performance Feedback Surveys

Certified by Kaiser Leadership Solutions we use the LVI 360 to provide additional empirical data regarding leadership style, most often in conjunction with psychometric assessments (see above). We provide the communication and set up information and manage the process from start to finish. Providing 360 Feedback allows leaders and managers to not only identify strengths and weaknesses but also to see which strengths get over used or underused and how that can limit one's effectiveness.

What Our Clients Say About Us

“Prior to partnering with Darrell Beck and Associates, Inc. I used fairly traditional methods for selection, hiring and promoting management employees and the results were mixed. Upon beginning work with Darrell he introduced me to a number of psychometric tools and I have been very pleased with the outcomes. I routinely use these instruments when hiring new employees, making promotion decisions and developing employees for leadership positions. The information available to us from these tools has resulted in higher caliber employees and more effective succession planning programs. The tests we ask candidates and employees to take are cost effective and user friendly, and Darrell plays a key role in assisting us with interpreting the results. The ability to make good selection and promotion decisions is key to the success of an organization and I would highly recommend any organization to include the use of these instruments in their process.”

“Using Dr. Beck and the Hogan has helped the Valley define who should be in what position. By doing the Hogan for all new hires we have saved money in hiring and staff turnover. Comments from staff as well as members are both very positive. It is amazing to see the difference from less than a year ago to where we are today.”
