Professional, career development has taken on an exciting new twist at Magnet Consulting’s ‘The Mettle Foundry,’ now open in Rochester Hills.
The Mettle Foundry is a professional development center built on the idea that true leadership is unfinished, rough, and beautifully flawed. The goal at TMF is to examine professional strengths and weaknesses in a fun, productive setting to refine and fortify authentic mettle as an individual or team.
The Mettle Foundry features ‘The Forge’, a problem solving room similar to the escape rooms that are growing in popularity across the country. Unique to The Forge is that it is staffed by trained behaviorists and psychologists who observe and evaluate team and individual behavior.
Each Forge session will include pre-consultation with one of Magnet Consulting’s behavioral experts, an onsite post-Forge class on whatever was the biggest concern for that team, and behavioral reports for the team and each individual. Teams walk away with tools for better communication, problem solving, conflict management and success.
“We believe that better people equals business success,” said Sandy Fiaschetti, Ph.D., Magnet Consulting Co-Founder. “The professionals at Magnet Consulting have spent decades assisting companies with their employee selection, team and leader development, and corporate culture. It was a natural flow for us to create a dedicated space for our clients and the community to sharpen their talents and develop more tools for success.”
In addition to The Forge, The Mettle Foundry will also offer career development workshops, internship training and bootcamps, staff retreats and individual on-site coaching.
“Based upon the response of the community as we have previewed The Mettle Foundry, I’m excited to launch Intern Bootcamp this summer. Intern Bootcamp is the last, and possibly most important, camp a parent will send their high-school senior or pre-college student to 17-22 to and the first place an employer will send a new intern,” said Nicole Lentz, Magnet Consulting Co-Founder. “Here, students will have a week simulation of ‘real work’ and receive real-time feedback on their performance. They will also learn the practical aspects of work that so often are overlooked, like office etiquette, scheduling conference calls, how to talk on that call, and much more.”
Sandy Fiaschetti, PhD and Nicole Lentz, MSF founded Magnet Consulting in 2012, bringing together both organizational psychology and financial experience from automotive, international, and regional industries to clients across the country.
Magnet Consulting works with businesses and municipalities helping them achieve their goals through proven scientific methods of workplace selection and development. Magnet Consulting’s passion is to engage each individual within an organization from the time of hire through the entire career.
