WHAT CLIENTS USING THE PROFILE ARE SAYING. . .
“The key difference I've found between YouMap® and any other model is actionable guidance; it illuminates the path forward in a single tool to uncover aptitude, motivation, and strengths. YouMap takes self-knowledge to the next level by focusing on how to apply that knowledge to benefit yourself, your team, your customers, and your organization.”
Senior Training Manager, Genentech
“I needed to hire somebody relatively quickly and I was less interested in their prior experience and more interested in whether or not they were actually wired for things like customer service, records management, detail orientation, etc. Also whether they would be comfortable and motivated working from home. I narrowed it down to two people who I thought would be well suited for the role based on the interviews, then I asked them both to the YouMap® assessments.
Looking at their YouMaps it was 100% clear which of the two candidates was a better fit for the position. The individual I hired worked out wonderfully and I've known from day one what tasks were energizing for them and what tasks were draining for them - allowing me to make small adjustments to make their workday more enjoyable to them. I truly can't imagine hiring anyone else without seeing their YouMap.”

RIGHT PEOPLE. RIGHT ROLES.
WHAT INDIVIDUALS ARE SAYING. . .
“In my last job I had a lot of mixed feelings. There were things I really liked about the job, but it wasn't the work I wanted to be doing. After using the YouMap® process to discover my strengths it helped me focus on the type of job I was looking for. After I was at my new job about a year-and-a-half I got totally surprised by a promotion, which was really nice, and just an affirmation that, 'Yeah, you're on the right track, you're doing a good job. We appreciate you.’”
“YouMap® helped me to unlock a deeper understanding of myself than I ever thought possible. The thoughtful and systematic approach to uncovering strengths, skills, and values helped me to recognize how I’m wired, why it matters, and how I can leverage my innate strengths and natural talents to make meaningful contributions.”
“I sent my YouMap® to a potential employer along with my resume. They said they would like to meet to make sure the job is the right fit for me. Little did I know that because of including YouMap with my resume, my employer already knew I would be a fit for the team. They just wanted to meet me in person and make sure I would like the work they want to give me. The "interview" felt more like a conversation because they didn't need to ask me the basic questions. After our first talk, they said they'd love to hire me ASAP and to expect an offer letter in the next couple of days. The offer letter arrived the next afternoon! It was INCREDIBLE!”
