We link human nature with job responsibilites to guarantee clients hire a Top Performer.

At Taylor Protocols, we stake our business and our reputation on one simple mission: to help get everyone in the right seat doing the right work. We do this so companies can experience increased revenue and lower turnover, and so employees can feel truly fulfilled in their job.

The CVI predicts future performance in any given role.

Our founder, Lynn Taylor, is creator of the Core Values Index™ (CVI). The CVI is a hiring tool that precisely matches the motivational drivers of candidates with the core responsibilities of a job. We guarantee you’ll hire a Top Performer every time or you can replace the hire at no charge. No other company offers this kind of recourse. You may have tried assessments in the past and been unimpressed. That’s because traditional hiring assessments produce data derived entirely from a candidate’s opinion of themselves.

Self-reporting is notoriously unreliable. In a world where we fudge everything from our weight to our age to our bank balance it seems only reasonable that a candidate seeking a job would try to guess what an employer wants to hear, and respond accordingly. The CVI removes self-reporting from the process altogether. There are no statements to make, no questions to answer; just 144 friendly words presented in 36 groups of 4. Pick 2 from each group and in less than 10 minutes you’re done.

The results are impressive and the ramifications are huge. Productivity soars and turnover plummets. This yields tremendous ROI, and for companies with multiple positions the benefits are exponential: you may need only 5 sales reps instead of 10 because the 5 you have are rock stars.

The investment is reasonable, about 1/5 the price of traditional recruiting firms.

Lynn has extensive experience serving as interim CEO for numerous companies and turned around over 200 organizations using the science of the CVI. He has positioned more than 8000 individuals into their seat of highest and best contribution so you know you’re working with an expert.  Plus, he’s kind of an interesting guy. In the early days Lynn worked alongside Dr. Ed Geiger, pioneering the development of the world’s first non-invasive cardiac-output computer. He used similar pattern-matching algorithms to produce the first IBM PC-compatible speech recognition system. Today, Lynn uses the same scientific approach to develop Top Performer Profiles™ which when paired with the CVI accurately pre-select future top performers for any position in any company. Taylor Protocols also performs Team Leadership Training and Human Capital Audits, both designed to optimize your existing teams and increase revenues.

Lynn is happy to provide a 50-minute complimentary executive coaching session to help get your organization where it needs to be.


The CVI is currently installed in over
700 companies in 26 countries and growing daily.

Lynn and his team (all top performers, mind you) are quietly challenging the status quo when it comes to using assessments in hiring.  That said, give us a call to sort through any questions or discuss your project needs and hiring challenges.

We’d love to see how we can help.
