Talent Optimizers help organizations retain, and develop talent and align teams with strategy.


Talent Optimizers is a management consultancy focusing on Talent. We leverage a network of Certified Talent Optimization consultants and utilize a range of toolsets, including The Predictive Index to support organizations retain, and develop talent and align teams with strategy.

Talent optimization uses data and analytics to make sure that a business leader's path to success is informed and purposeful. It helps define job requirements, identify ideal candidates for open positions, align teams to accomplish business goals, and effectively inspire employees for optimal results.


Helping individuals and teams thrive. 

After over 20 years in corporate, experiencing more lows than highs, Talent Optimizers have discovered the secret to not only thriving in the corporate world but also feeling inspired, energized, and engaged, both at work and home. 

This involves not only a true understanding of self and others but also the need to be part of something that feels right and is making a true difference to the greater good.  

With purpose and passion, we’ve embraced the talent optimization movement and pulled together a range of solutions that empower organizations to embed the benefits of optimized talent throughout the organization.

Talent Optimizers support organizations in retaining and developing talent and aligning teams with strategy.  We wake up in the morning excited to support our clients along this journey.  Why?  Because at the end of the day, we go to sleep at night with a smile on our faces. Because we know we help others do the same.  

Better Work, Better World 
Work and home life are now no longer separate. Organizations need to support employees to feel as equally energized out of work as much as in work.  

Being the best, we can be today and trying to be better tomorrow. 
We strive to be the best at what we do.  We do this because of 100% commitment to our purpose and believe this passion will support our clients to share our vision of better work, better world. 

We also strive to be the best version of ourselves.  The best we can be today and better tomorrow.  If we fall short, that's ok too.  As long as we pick ourselves back up and continue trying.   

Making a difference beyond our core focus 
Supporting the community, spending time with family, and inspiring others through achievements.  We believe making a positive impact on the world often goes beyond our core mission of better work, better world.  



Family and Health First

Health and family are the number one priority.  If this is supported, the rest will take care of itself.  

Bold Action 

Going beyond and failing makes us even stronger. Be brave, be bold. 

Unfiltered Expression

We can’t go on this journey alone. We need leadership at all levels and diversity of thought to truly make a difference.


Our journey is going to be treacherous however we’re here to support you.  We want our teams to be empowered and accountable.  

Passion for Making a Difference

This journey is not for everybody.  It’s going to be tough. Without passion, we’re not going to get there.
