Intrinsic Talent Solutions is an enterprise learning and development strategy firm specializing in collaborative staff training and strategic planning that helps redefine how you do business.

It’s a proven fact that educated employees are happy employees. So, providing your incoming talent and existing team members with the proper training and enrichment to help them do an amazing job in their position is an essential element of continued business excellence day to day.

That’s why we’ve engineered a comprehensive suite of talent development solutions to help you keep your business running like a well-oiled machine.


Traditionally, staff training has consisted of long, drawn-out seminars and classes. But, not everyone learns the same way and information tends to get lost in translation.

At Intrinsic, we believe in a more radical method of learning and development…A way that actually helps anchor information and produces informed, productive employees.

But, how do we do that?

Space Repetition Model

A proven training methodology, the spaced repetition model encourages information retention by reintroducing learned content to your team at regular intervals to stimulate memory.

As a result, your employees are more engaged by what they’re learning and are able to apply it to their daily duties.

Custom Tailored Solutions

There are no one-size-fits-all learning management solutions; every business is different, and so are the needs of their employees.

At Intrinsic, we’ll help you create an immersive training program that is perfectly tailored to the goals of your business.

Sustainable Action Plans

A dedicated Sustainable Action Plan works to establish new learning processes while also enhancing existing processes to ensure that they are up-to-date and relevant to your business and employees.


At Intrinsic Talent Solutions, it is our singular mission to empower businesses of all sizes to meet their long-term goals through carefully crafted leadership programs and training strategy.


At Intrinsic, we work to make sure that our entire team is properly equipped to help your team learn and grow.

Both of our founders are Certified Leadership Challenge Facilitators, and also possess several other certifications that streamline our services, such as facilitate and interpret the Korn Ferry Hay Group Series of Emotional and Social Intelligence, Leadership Styles, and Organizational Climate assessments.

We also utilize several additional psychometric assessment tools in our development processes, such as StrengthsFinder, Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode, DiSC, Emotional Intelligence Appraisal, FIRO-B, and the Korn Ferry Hay Group Influence Strategies Assessment.
