Assessments

 

...is defining how and where you want to grow, and then measuring.

The shoe that fits one person pinches another.

  --Carl Jung

You will be surprised at the detail provided by these online assessments, which have been shown over millions of respondents to have a high degree of validity and accuracy.

Modern business in many ways has become a business of metrics.  Everyone is being measured at all times--efficiency, effectiveness, employee retention, customer retention, positioning, exposures, conversion rates.  Gurus from Demming to Welch all say the same thing:  if you can’t measure it, don’t do it. 


So, how do you measure your people?  Are you trying to hire just the right person, or are you interested in supporting an existing employee to grow or improve in a specific skill set?  Human behavior is incredibly complex, and every manager knows there is more than one way to achieve specific results.  We also know that there is huge value in diversity:  flexibility, adaptability, new perspectives, faster rate of adjustment to setbacks, etc.

  1. you will have a better match between people and their specific job;
