And let’s face it…what people learn by using this tool and completing the training often helps improve their personal relationships as well, which leads to greater focus and productivity in the workplace.
Which Assessments Are Available?
DISC = Behaviors
The most effective people are those who understand themselves, both their strengths and weaknesses, so they can develop strategies to meet the demands of their environment. This report measures the four dimensions of normal behavior: dominance, influence, steadiness, and compliance.
Driving Forces = Motivators
Knowledge of an individual’s motivators explain why a person behaves a certain way. This report measures the primary driving forces cluster to tell a story of how a person derives meaning from life and work.
DNA = Competencies
An individual’s hierarchy of skills is key to their success, and knowing where they are is essential to reaching their goals. This report is designed to assist in managing and developing a career. For many jobs, personal skills are as important as technical skills in producing superior performance.
EQ-i = Emotional Intelligence
Understand one’s surroundings and how to read the room is critical in today’s business environment. This instrument is used to determine personal development, emotional intelligence, and emotional and social competencies.
How Do We Get the Most Out of Our Assessments?
Well, you can just read the reports, but assessments aren’t best utilized when they are provided as stand-alone documents. And they aren’t likely to change a person’s behavior until that person knows how to properly read and interpret the results. That’s where training comes in!
