Assessments and Talent Management

Assuming that pure physical talent equals leadership is as big a mistake in professional sports as it is in business. National Hockey League coaches and managers look for leaders and team players who set an example by playing a 200-foot game for all 60 minutes. Athletic ability alone won’t bring home the Stanley Cup.

Caliper has helped the NHL decipher which draft candidates are innate leaders, second-in-commands, or foot soldiers. 

Using the Caliper Profile, we have shown coaches and managers whether their draft picks:

  • Possess the right attitude to work as a team player and take the lead, when necessary
  • Will remain focused in stressful situations and when under pressure
  • Can take calculated risks to make a positive impact on team success

Whether your work takes place on an ice rink, in an office, at a manufacturing facility, or anywhere else, Caliper has the tools to help you identify high-potential performers and improve team efficiency and results. 

"I’ve figured out how to use Caliper by making some mistakes along the way, by hiring people who had good experience and recommendations but poor Caliper results and they ended up not working out."
