Who we serve?
"The competition out there is tough. All of our competitors can essentially buy the same equipment and use it in the same way, but the organization with the best-trained people will produce the best products and services. We worked collaboratively with the Centrestar to make that investment in our employees."

What makes us unique
We use a competency-based learning system to identify and address the learning needs of individuals and organizations. Learning today requires a guided approach from assessments through a variety of learning options, and that is what Centrestar delivers.
Accurate, easy-to-use assessment tools are an absolute necessity, whether to select new employees, identify and pinpoint skill gaps of individuals or teams, or determine the skills and competencies needed in the workforce to meet changing business needs.
Centrestar has broad experience in assessing the skills and competencies of thousands of personnel across all industries. We provide research-based and easy-to-use leadership competency tools, guidebooks, and inventories to focus professional development initiatives.
You can use our 35 competency assessment tool for individuals, targeted groups, or as a multi-rater feedback and coaching instrument. If needed, we can assist you in customizing these tools to support specific organizational initiatives.
Centrestar also offers a variety of digital or print-based books, workbooks, and instructional materials that you can use for individual study or in-house training. All our offerings are aligned with the Centerstar Five-Domain (or Cluster) Competency Model.
