About People Acuity

  • People Acuity – The One Thing that Changes Everything in a Human Economy
  • Confident Vulnerability:  From Weak to Peak Performance
  • There is No “I” in Team, but there is in Team Connection
  • Work Joy:  The Most wanted Work Skill of Our Day
  • Partnership:  Creating Powerful Partnerships

People Acuity raises People Culture up to the new Human Economy standards, effectively aligning it with strategy and execution, to achieve optimal business results and relationships. 

The Human Economy has arrived, and with it an upgraded demand for leaders to “clearly see and optimize people,” to operate with high People Acuity – so as to ensure that their business wins in the new economy where “4 in 10 companies are predicted to fail in the next decade” (J.P. Morgan). The need for People Acuity is further evidenced today by the fact that 83% of all organizations experience moderate or high levels of toxicity with a cascade effect that spreads from leaders to managers, and from managers to employees. In fact, in high-blame organizations, fully 34% of total employee salary – or approximately $7.35 million annually in organizations with more than a thousand employees – is lost as a result of dysfunction and dissatisfaction.

People Acuity empowers their clients to create revolutionary, self-sustaining systems for assessing, building, developing, and embedding positive people cultures. Their proprietary assessments move you past outdated, transactional engagement measures (largely arbitrary, ineffective in terms of
development and alignment, and easily abused when tied to incentives or salary increases) generating individualized metrics around Proactivity, Work Joy, Confident Vulnerability, and Team Connection and producing meaningful insights into bottom-line concerns like absenteeism, turnover, and underperformance.
