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.
