How does it work?
  • We meet to discuss your team needs
  • Your team gets an online and confidential questionnaire to fill in
  • If desired, each team member receives a follow-up one-to-one session to go over their individual details
  • We have a team session to see the team level results, how to improve collaboration, actionable plans on how to work better together.
  • If desired, we provide individual coaching sessions.
Do you Offer Long-Term Services?

Yes, it’s great that you ask! We have Saville for a first screening of your candidates and Able to support you in picking out of the best candidates. Once selected, we provide coaching, follow up sessions and tailored programs to provide long-term support to your team, such as Team Development and Personality Assessments.

What Types of Businesses Do you Work With?
We work with any company that is eager to create a great working environment where all of their talents can excel.  This includes,

  • Big international companies, where you can find very different cultures, working styles and personalities.
  • Small – medium-sized companies, facing culture changes.
  • Individuals and freelancers.
Does it work with Virtual teams?
Yes! We can implement the Able Series virtually to multiple locations, although we will need your support onsite. However, if you are looking into screening from a large number of candidates, you might be interested in using the Saville Tests instead. 
What are the key benefits?
  • Looks at how people might adapt to increasingly
    complex work environments
  • Includes ten different tests applicable to a wide range of roles, including managerial, graduate, technical, specialist and customer services
  • Tests a candidate’s ability to learn
  • Requires candidates to combine different skills, rather than testing them separately
  • Includes a large range of specific norm tables, enabling the most relevant comparison group to be used.
How much does it cost?
There’s no fixed price. We would need to discuss your needs and adjust accordingly. A few things that will influence your investment:

  • How many people will be a part of this initiative?
  • Is Able Series part of a more extensive program to grow your teams?
  • Are the sessions conducted online or in person? Is there a need to travel?
  • Which materials will you want to give to the participants (reports only, books, one-pager, research papers, etc.)?
Where are you?
Coaching for Work is based in Zurich. We can simply work together in person if you are in Switzerland. If not, we can do this virtually, or we can discuss travel arrangements.
We use the ABLE Critical Information Analysis as an alternative to the more traditional critical reasoning aptitude tests. This gives us an opportunity to assess how quickly candidates translate what they have learned into practice. We believe this approach to aptitude testing is more reflective of the challenges people actually face on a day to day basis at work.
