Our products and services fall into seven broad areas. Please visit the page dedicated to each for further information.
Assessment interviews are conducted to evaluate individuals for selection and development purposes. We assess external candidates for jobs as well as those already working in our client organization either for internal promotion or development. Each assessment provides a thorough evaluation of an individual's characteristics in areas such as problem solving, interpersonal skills, personality attributes and leadership style. Strengths and areas for development are highlighted and the individual receives specific feedback and instruction from the evaluating consultant.
Our expert-designed, on-line surveys provide individuals with a comprehensive view of how others perceive their impact and behavior in the workplace. These surveys provide a wealth of insight and excellent guidance for self-development efforts. The 360° process can also be conducted through personal interviews with direct supervisors, subordinates, customers (internal and external) and peers.
A critical, but often overlooked, factor in successful mergers is how well the two organizations complement one another in terms of talent. Cultural compatibility is key to long term success. Ruda Cohen & Associates assists in the due diligence process by evaluating these and other 'soft' characteristics. Once particular issues are identified, we will work with the organizations to address them both during and after the merger process.
Planning for the future of an organization is a vital exercise. Often overlooked in this strategic plan are questions of personnel development. We can help you to plan for the future of your organization by identifying and developing your human resources. Utilizing proven assessment procedures, we assess the strengths and areas for development for your people and then help you to carve a path for their succession through your organization.
Our training programs address many of the essential skills and competencies needed for success in today's workplace. We offer variety of day long or half-day in areas such as team problem solving, interviewing skills, communications and listening skills, giving feedback, and negotiation.
An organization's long-term success is dependent on an ability to identify necessary changes and then guide employees through a successful transition. Often these changes seem simple on paper, but implementing them proves more difficult. Our consultants provide management the appropriate guidance and support in designing and implementing critical change efforts.
The best teams are "greater than the sum of their parts." However, this can be difficult to achieve. Our consultants work closely with team members on an individual and group basis to identify common strengths and areas for improvement. We then provide specific instruction to help the team grow stronger together and realize its potential.
