This Personal Behavioral Assessments module of Stewart, Cooper & Coon’s consultative resources is most effective when considered with these other available modules:
Self-assessments are beneficial in several ways. First, they create awareness about personality and behavioral types. Second, they can be used to determine the right fit for employment. Third, they are used to determine how your people fit within your organization. Fourth, they can determine what communication styles are in play. Fifth, how effective they are in influencing organizational behavior.
What is a Self-Assessment? A self-assessment is a way of revealing one’s personality and behavioral type, by answering a series of questions. Scoring systems are built into the assessments to conclude personality and behavioral types.
Ask Stewart, Cooper & Coon about our certified practitioners’ expertise and facilitation in these behavioral assessments. Interventions, workshops, documentation, one-on-one counsel – they’re all available. We recommend the following assessments, in order of demonstrated value:
Insights Discovery®: Looking at leading change, employee engagement, increasing productivity, boosting sales? The Insights Discovery® programs are designed to meet the everyday challenges your organization faces. Insights Discovery® can help you strengthen internal and external relationships, improve teamwork and collaboration and be more innovative. Provides thorough personal analysis within any of 72 sub-types or profiles.
Five Factor Model (FFM or OCEAN) of Personality: The Five Factor Model is a model of personality that uses five separate factors to describe an individual’s character and is a useful tool for predicting behavior and explaining why certain individuals act the way they do. The five factors may not be sufficient for giving a complete character profile, but are useful in providing a snapshot.
Myers-Briggs Assessment (aka MBTI): The Myers-Briggs assessment provides a comprehensive analysis represented within 16 profiles on personality traits, including introversion and extroversion types. A recent issue of “The Reference Librarian” explains that the Myers-Briggs personality typology is one of the most commonly used self-assessment tools in the workplace.
