LeadersCove LLC Becomes Approved Provider of OPTM360

Consulting Firm Expands Focus to Provide More Effective 360 Evaluations

LITTLETON, CO--(Marketwire - Feb 21, 2012) - Today, LeadersCove LLC announced the establishment of an exciting new partnership between LeadersCove and The Talent Strategy Group, a global Human Resources and Talent Management consulting firm, led by Marc Effron, co-author of One Page Talent Management, Eliminating Complexity, Adding Value. As an OPTM360 Approved Provider, LeadersCove is now pleased to be able to offer this state of the art talent assessment service to its clients.

"I am delighted to be working with Marc Effron and his team. The OPTM360 is on the vanguard of management solutions. It provides a clear and concise approach that helps businesses focus on what matters 'now.' It relies on the very best science to provide insight on how people view critical information, how they respond to change and how they are motivated to perform on the job," explained Julia Hill-Nichols, founder of LeadersCove.

In a March 2008 Harvard Business Review article, "Talent Management for the Twenty-First Century," Peter Cappelli wrote, "Every talent management process in use today was developed half a century ago. It's time for a new model." The new model is here for 360s -- the OPTM360.

"Our goal is to help our clients build better leaders faster by applying principals of simplicity, accountability and transparency. The OPTM360 offers managers specific and focused advice on how to improve their behavior, moving forward in a manner that is easily absorbed," noted Marc Effron.

OPTM360 helps companies adjust and respond to today's rapidly evolving business environment by helping managers identify the most critical behaviors that require change. As one OPTM360 client stated, "In the past, the quantitative aspects of our 360 were confusing and distracting, but now the OPTM360 focuses our leaders on specific behaviors important to their development."

Companies that are interested in a 360 evaluation for their executive and management teams, or for all of their leadership should contact LeadersCove,
