Welcome from Founder & CEO Laura Heft
For a limited time, you and/or your organization have an opportunity to try the Optimism assessment for FREE.
Organizations: GrowOptimism will analyze the results to ensure the test increases your ability to predict successful hires. For participating in the pilot, your organization will receive free assessments for 1 year.
People who are more optimistic are more successful in all areas of their lives. Although many people have some habits of negative thinking, these tendencies can be overcome. Making improvements in optimistic thinking leads to improvements in the quality of life. We are committed to making the world a more optimistic place.
To be more optimistic, people need to understand their current optimism level and opportunities for improvement. Organizations need to identify the most optimistic job candidates and develop more optimism in their current employees.
GrowOptimism has developed a assessment that not only identifies whether a person is optimistic or not, but also provides feedback on strengths and opportunities. The new assessment is psychometrically sound, reliable, and valid. It is appropriate for personal and work settings.
