Discover your gifts. Transform your work, your team, your life.

When it comes to work, we all have gifts that give us energy and allow us to contribute to the success of organizations and teams. We are meant to use those gifts, and it is frustrating, sometimes even tragic, when we can’t. Too often teams are less than productive when members struggle to access their highest potential. The Working Genius assessment provides powerful insight into one’s working geniuses, competencies, and frustrations. Simple and effective. No wonder more than 700,000 people have taken the assessment since its launch in 2021.

By applying the Working Genius model to teams, organizations can build teams that are not only diverse in terms of skills and expertise but also in terms of working genius profiles. This diversity can lead to more well-rounded and effective teams that are better equipped to tackle a wide range of challenges and tasks.
