“Done With You” or “Done for You” Services
The DNA Behavior systems can be used to meet a wide range of business, family, and personal development goals. We provide one-on-one and group programs that focus on the areas you choose. We cover hiring, team and leadership development, personal growth, financial planning, family succession planning, as well as designing and customizing solutions to meet your unique needs. No matter what level of support you need, we can guide or assist to get you comfortable with using behavior and money insights.
Leaders can leverage DNA Behavior insights to drive smarter, behaviorally driven hiring. The same information can then be used to optimize the onboarding process.
Candidate Screening: We’ll help you identify and predict the strengths, struggles, and work habits for job applicants and how they will fit with your corporate culture and the needs of your position. You’ll get access to behavioral insights, interview questions, and a one-on-one consultation to practically apply behavioral science in your hiring process.
Benchmark Setting: Expanding on the hiring insights, we’ll help you build custom role benchmarks. Our experienced research team can analyze any role in your organization and identify the perfect behavioral match. You’ll be able to optimize the hiring process and get the right people in the right roles, right from the start.
Digital Twins: For improving the consistency of hiring and promotion decisions, digital twins can be created by cloning the decisions of the best recruiters using artificial intelligence technology. All the hiring elements that a panel of the best recruiters would consider in making their decision would be incorporated into the digital twin.
Team Performance and Talent Development
Teams function best when there is an awareness of each member’s natural talents and work habits. It leads to improved communication, fosters understanding, and ultimately boosts performance. The programs we provide for teams examine each member’s insights, then lead them through a more conscious team decision-making process.
Team Awareness (online or in-person): This program is designed for teams. We’ll examine each person’s natural behavior and workplace insights, analyze the team report, and provide a 90-minute team awareness session. Each participant gets access to their own insights as they complete the discovery. An individual debriefing with each participant can also be added prior to the team event to ensure the team is comfortable with their own results prior to sharing with the group.
Team Decision Making: In this program, participants will attend a team awareness session, then be guided through a deep study on the decision-making variability of the team. Variability in decision-making costs companies millions each year because it is hidden and unmeasured. We begin by analyzing a typical repetitive decision-making process requiring human judgment (like talent assessment, knowing a client, portfolio design, compliance, creating a budget, or planning a project timeline) for variability, then provide a readout on the opportunity for improving consistency.
Leadership Performance Coaching
To be an effective leader, coach, advisor, or facilitator, it takes a degree of self-awareness. After exploring your own inherent behavioral identity, we provide additional insight to your work talents and leadership style, then coach you on how to use this information for yourself, your team, and your clients.
60-minute Identity Interview: We’ll explore your natural work talents, workplace operations and hiring report followed by an Identity Interview, which will help you clarify your unique talents and identity.
Leadership Identity Coaching: We take a deeper dive into the details of your identity and leadership style with this one-on-one coaching program, customized to address your individual needs.
Additionally, we have specific coaching processes for advisor, sales, employee and career performance, which can be customized to meet your individual needs.
Client-Centered Business Design
We work with all types of organizations on the transformation of their business model so the client becomes the center of the whole service life-cycle. Our approach, technology, and depth of behavior and money insights allow for the easy implementation of hyper-personalization. This allows you to build a higher level of client engagement for longer. We help the organization appoint and build a behaviorally optimized sales or advisory team matched to ideal clients to make this business evolution happen.
Design Meeting: In this program, participants from leadership and sales or advisory teams will attend a planning session to review how the sales segmentation and client journey could be made more effective with the overlay of behavior and money insights at specific touchpoints. We will examine the behavior and money insights of each team member and their clients to determine the optimal client experience model.
Digital Twins: For improving the consistency of how clients are understood, selected, and interacted with across the organization, digital twins can be created by cloning the decisions of the best sales or advisory teams using artificial intelligence technology. All the elements that a panel of the best sales or advisory teams would consider in making their decision would be incorporated into the digital twin.
Family Facilitation for Continuity Planning
For financial planners working with families on financial plans, legacy planning, or generational transition, we offer a family facilitation package. It includes a planning meeting with the advisor to work out the agenda and goals for the meeting, a 90-minute family discovery session facilitated by a DNA Behavior expert, and a 60-minute debriefing session with the advisor to build a plan to continue working with the family based on the insights shared during the session. Expert facilitation helps you to address communication issues in the family so that trust can be built and maintained as they build a more secure future. Ongoing family facilitation services are available depending on the needs of the family.
Behavior Tech Implementation
When you are not used to building an app or a tech platform, the task ahead can be daunting. Extreme clarity is required between you and the tech team, so there are no missed expectations. Consideration must be given to how the app will connect to the outside world, the design of its architecture, and your organization’s workflow. Therefore, we can step in and guide our ISV partners in gaining clarity for the scope and design of their unique behavioral-based business solution which will be using the DNA API.
