Talentlift is your source for Jacksonville's best experts in I/O Psychology.

(And we're at the top of our game.)

From hiring decisions to executive coaching and leadership development, we help you to "lift" your talent to a new level.

Our experts have helped organizations and individuals navigate the increasingly complex world of work since before computers came with a mouse (but not before computers). And that's important because we know how complex (i.e., "hard") it is to do good work applying psychology in the workplace (e.g., individual psychological assessment, psycho-social psychology, team building, trust issues, test construction and validation, etc.) We did it on mainframes or, sometimes, by hand. Nobody is more thankful for the technology aided advances in psychology than we are. We're proud of the fact that we helped design some of the technology.

But we're not just good with the "mechanics" of I/O Psychology. We've made notable contributions to the knowledge base of I/O Psychology. Our research on employee turnover¹ has been recognized as one of the most influential in 100 years².

Today's world is littered with thousands of assessments. Technology has enabled substantial improvements to some types of assessment, but it has also created a lot of "noise."

We know how much "junk" there is being pushed through the internet. Consider this: There are (many) more assessments in the market than there are people qualified to design them (i.e., psychometricians). Technology may be making things TOO easy to be "published."

Our combination of knowledge, technological expertise and real-world experience (admittedly, not all good) has given us the depth and breadth known as, "wisdom." This is a very unique capability. There were fewer than 1,000 I/O psychologists when we joined the ranks. Now there are over 6,000.

In sum: We've been around long enough to have used calculators to do stats, but remain nimble enough to use the latest (good) technology.

Knowledge. Expertise. Application.

-- and clients say we're nice and easy to work with. R. Chris Steilberg, PhD President

R. Chris Steilberg, Ph.D.

Owner and Principal Consultant

 

Chris brings a visionary, but clear-eyed, perspective to organization solutions. A practical innovator, Chris delivers uniquely bold solutions; scientifically sound; free from convention. "I don't worry about methods or processes like so many who come with a solution. Extraordinary results can't be achieved via ordinary practice." His innovations have challenged convention beyond the workplace to overturn the way scientists think about long-standing issues in performance and tenure. Chris' differentiating characteristic is his insatiable curiosity combined with boundry-less creativity. "Dream big, never assume, and always play to win (not, not lose)." His insights are most sought after by organizations and individuals ready to address the unvarnished truth and breakout of convention. Disruption can be expected. Anything less will not keep pace, nor long survive, in today's race.

Dedicated to Practical, Sustainable Results

"Sustainability is CRITICAL to success." Great solutions can be completely rejected if they aren't carefully integrated with strategy and culture.
