Helping people and businesses sell better
 

assessing people
At Barrett we are staffed by a lead team of experienced, qualified business professionals skilled and accredited in the use of a range of proprietary assessment tools, simulations, and concepts coupled with relevant industry-recognised experience. Since 1995 we have assessed more than 70,000 people and offer a range of Selection & Development Packages for Sales People, Customer Service, Leaders, Sales Managers and other business roles.

Rather than offering our clients a vast range of assessments to choose from, Barrett only recommends a Best Practice suite of Assessments be which are reliable and meet industry and ethical standards and support our work with clients in consulting, sales consulting, coaching, sales coaching, sales training, development, profiling, and recruitment.

Quality psychometric assessments, like diagnostic tools used in medicine and other scientific applications, are calibrated to measure specific aspects of self such as Personality, Motives & Values, Attitudes & Behaviours, Leadership Styles & Derailing Behaviours, Call Reluctance, Team Preferences, Communication Styles, Emotional Intelligence (EQ) and Abilities & Aptitudes (IQ).  However, like most instruments, these assessments are not perfect therefore they need to be used in consultation with other reliable data combined with feedback or coaching to give a more complete picture of a person.

Combining years of experience in the use and application of psychometric assessments, we take a holistic approach to assessments and partner with our clients to determine the most suitable Assessment for your needs. We use our comprehensive experience to localise and interpret the information for your organisation.

All assessments are administered online for ease of access and quick turnaround. We provide comprehensive reports designed for both Selection and Development purposes and can offer specific interview questions for use in interviews, reference checking and coaching. Feedback and interpretation is provided by an accredited individual.

Val Dani, Group General Manager Dome Garden Supplies
We began working with Barrett midyear 2009.  Our Sales Team was in need of a makeover as our business had grown from Small Business to SME in a very short time. We desperately needed skilled, organized and proactive sales reps to sustain the growth and maintain our position in the market place.  For a period of 6 months, Sue Barett became our surrogate Sales Manager and held regular weekly sales meetings which involved coaching, mentoring and up-skilling the sales team to plan ahead and give them the confidence to get out on road where previously they were more in-house order takers rather than field reps.  The experience was both challenging and rewarding for the sales team and the process revealed the businesses' strengths and weaknesses which lead to the restructure of the entire business.  Barrett's approach is honest and encouraging and it's about seeking out real solutions.  There are no false promises or gimmicks on how to be the best but its rather a journey of self discovery supported with common sense sales strategies and plans that work and can be adapted by any sales rep and business.  One of the first things that Barrett warned us about was that not all sales reps will last the journey.  The process exposed some sales reps that didn't have what it takes and in time they exited the business which made way for more talented sales people.  Choosing Barrett was the one of the smartest business decisions we've made.  We still work closely with Barrett utilizing their services and tools such as the Psychometric Sales and Leadership testing which I highly recommend to recruit and retain the right people.  Sue is a rare and amazing coach, facilitator, mentor and business woman who inspires and challenges everyone she meets to be better sales reps, managers and people.
