What’s so important about knowing your behavior style and values or those of your employees? Behavioral preferences are at the root of our communication style and greatly impact how “happy” and effective we are in any role. Adapting to a role that isn’t a natural fit causes us stress. Within teams different behavioral styles can lead to conflicts because communication styles can be like opposite magnetic poles repelling, instead of attracting.
Many of our clients assess behavior and values before they make an offer to a candidate. It can save months of getting to know someone when we can know —and discuss before hiring — his or her behavior profile. Knowing someone’s values — our motivations — completes the picture. Our values dictate how much we will “fit” in a given culture — if someone doesn’t agree with corporate values she will feel out of place and in conflict with the environment.
We use the DISC and Motivators tools to assess preferred style and values. These tools have over 30 years of validation and research behind them and have been used in over 30 different countries.
These online tools take less than 15 minutes to complete and yield results in excess of 20 pages. Talk to us today about how these profiles could support your efforts in employee retention, development and hiring.
