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.

Mark Hand, Former General Manager(now Managing Director ANZ Retail & Distribution) and Brad Greenwood, Head of Business Development - Regional Commercial Banking
We worked closely with Barrett at the beginning of 2009 to develop a tailored Sales Program for ~300 Relationship Managers nationally. This program focused on understanding and developing core components for sales fitness through a very practical 3 day course - which included key concepts such as message intent, backwards planning, valid business reasons, effective questioning and offering solutions. This was supported back in the field by our Regional Managers who delivered 10 follow up sessions and infield coaching after extensive training and coaching by Barrett. At the time the sales training program rolled out, our business unit was going through a major restructure, and Sue's deep practical sales experience together with her great empathy and sensitivity ensured our relationship managers came away with: greater role clarity, heightened self awareness regarding the importance of goals, accountability, leadership, health and attitude for sales success; and practical sales tools to effectively plan, manage and deliver their sales targets.
