GVS Engage supports clients in strategy development, sales capture planning and execution, and organizing to achieve high levels of performance over time. We bring Talent Optimization to life in organizations by aligning People Strategy to Business Strategy.

GVS Engage is based in Waukesha, Wisconsin with associates in Wisconsin, Michigan, Maryland and Florida. While many consulting firms support business strategy development and/or client capture planning, few address the challenge of developing and aligning People Strategy with the client’s Business Strategy.

Two key partners provide GVS Engage with key proprietary methodologies:

Decision Mapping® – provides clients with a conceptual and literal “Map” of their customers’ decision process. GVS Engage members were introduced to Mapping® over 15 years ago. Utilizing the process, they have led many teams in successful capture efforts worth billions of dollars. Now, through a direct relationship with The Decision Mapping Counsel, LLC, GVS Engage supports client company growth by application of the process and by providing them with training and licenses for continued use.

PI® – The Predictive Index – Most companies don’t know how to assemble high-performing teams. They don’t know how to manage employees in a way that pushes everyone to the top of their game. They create a business strategy. They monitor their business results. But they don’t do the key “people work” in between—and they fail to reach their goals. Talent optimization is a four-part discipline you can use to align your business strategy with your people strategy for optimal business results.

PI® is a proven talent optimization methodology that allows businesses to understand the factors driving members of their workforce. Scientific validation and a 60-year proven track record shows that business challenges large and small are no match for PI’s unique approach to client education and knowledge transfer, which ensures swift adoption, direct ROI, and high impact on performance metrics.
