"After carefully examining the assessments and processes introduced by CoreFive to help teams with player selection and development, I took the assessment myself. Understanding how to apply the information leaves no doubt in my mind that this process would dramatically improve draft selection and accelerate player development.
The information contained in the assessments provides a “behind the curtain” view of the player that gives tremendous insight into the player’s natural talents and abilities, their DNA. The ability to accurately measure these traits allows the team to better understand the player as a person, manage their development, as well as compare a player’s level of development to others who have been assessed.
Speaking from my experience as a Director of Scouting for the Detroit Red Wings for seven seasons, as well as the President & General Manager with the New York Rangers for eleven seasons, I know that CoreFive’s involvement will have a significant impact on budget decisions involving player personnel.
Mistakes made at the draft table can become very expensive. Identifying talent is the easy part. Identifying and quantifying the personal skills that result in the translation of that “talent”
into a productive NHL career is what matters most.
CoreFive’s assessments will greatly help in that regard"

"The assessments and services provided by CoreFive have certainly convinced me that there is a better way to identify, select and develop talent within an organization. I recently reviewed an assessment report from CoreFive on a person that I served with and have known for many years. I was very impressed by how accurate and holistic the results were, as well as the breadth and depth of the report.
The CoreFive Reports provide a multi-dimensional view of the candidate. This information can then be used to objectively compare the skills required for the role with the natural talents and abilities of the candidate.
Within the Canadian Armed Forces, there are a number of critical positions in leadership, special forces, intelligence, key technical and operational areas where there is little margin for error. Personnel have to perform
at their best, each and every day. Ensuring that we select those best suited
for their particular roles is essential."

"Self awareness is a critical component of athletic and professional success. The coaching reports provided by CoreFive take a comprehensive look at who you are and how you function in your environment in order to help you optimize your performance.
Unlike other assessments, the coaching reports CoreFive provides offer constructive ideas on how to improve your interactions and performance based on your characteristics in relation to your environment. The time Allan took to go through the assessments afterwards was very helpful and added much more value to the process.”

“The #1 characteristic to good coaching is effective communication. The Player Assessment Reports allowed me to maximize my interactions with players throughout the year and get the most out of each of them. The 2014-15 season was the first time I used material like this and I will not coach another team without accumulating this valuable player information.”
