"We hire people for their skills but the whole person shows up for work.'"
Chester I. Barnard

Corporations are only as good as their employees. The best organizations are finding that skill-based hiring is just the beginning. To maximize productivity, they must strive to keep employees happy. How is that done? By looking at the natural abilities of each employee and maximizing opportunities for these abilities to be used.

Your organization can design its own program according to specific needs and goals. anchors consulting has the flexibility and multiple components to offer your organization no more or no less than it needs to achieve the most 'bang for the buck'.


Effective leaders come in all shapes, sizes and styles, but no matter how they lead, they all have two things in common.  First, effective leaders have a vision of what they want to accomplish, and they are able to articulate their vision to others and motivate others to help make that vision a reality.  Second, effective leaders know themselves, their strengths and weaknesses.  They concentrate their efforts in those areas that utilize their strengths and compensate for their weaknesses by developing skills and relying on others whose strengths complement their weak areas.  Using The Highlands Ability Battery as a starting point, anchors consulting will help your leaders, both current and future, develop a vision that blends their personal plans with the needs and future well-being of the organization.


"Success in the knowledge economy comes to those who know themselves - a person can perform only from strength.  One cannot build performance from weakness."  - Peter Drucker

The unique, objective nature of The Highlands Ability Battery tells your employees in a quantitative manner what their natural strengths are.  Armed with this information, employees can create a work environment that increases their effectiveness and satisfaction, thereby increasing your bottom line.


Teamwork is critical to the success of any organization.
