Who does not enjoy taking behavioral personality assessments to better understand themselves? We are infinitely interested in who we are, how we interact with others and just what makes us tick! The problem is, most assessments measure a very narrow set of traits. Many common psychological and behavioral assessments look primarily at personality traits. For instance, Myers Briggs and DISC are widely used to measure personality styles. Imagine of the 6+ billion people in the world, you are one of 16 Myers Briggs styles! So what exactly does that make you — 1 in 375,000,000? No, YOU are unique! To appreciate just how unique you are, view this powerful video and be encouraged: You are Unique
Traditional Assessment Tools
Organizations use a wide range of behavioral assessments to facilitate selection, individual and team development, succession and career planning. Assessments are often used to categorize talent into various roles and teams, which can be useful to gain insight into how best to work together and optimize performance. In the process, style indicators often overlook qualities and attributes that reveal how each contributor and leader is uniquely qualified to add value to the organization. For example, what engages Susie may be very different from Sam, or Harriot. So what can organizations do to more effectively measure and engage the unique set of traits each employee brings to the organization while still placing them in the right role with the right boss?
