The People Skills Group and their associates are certified in and use the following assessments:
360 Assessments for Development
Our 360 assessment tool is used extensively by large Fortune 50 companies such as Microsoft, ADP and the FDA as well as small organizations and non-profit agencies. The tools allows us to customize your survey, collect explanatory remarks from the respondents after each question, providing a wealth of information to the recipients, aggregate data among groups. We can help you individual results to project results, expectations to observations; and monitor progress through re-administration.
Temperament Theory helps us to understand and identify why we behave the way we do. When we look at our temperament, we look at our core values and needs, which drive our talents and ultimately our behaviors. We use a validated instrument and self-selection techniques that enable people to identify their temperament. Temperament is a different, but complimentary to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® and often helps people to confirm and understand their personality type.
Whereas Temperament Theory gets to the “why” of behavior, Interaction Styles helps people to understand the “how” of human behavior in the workplace. Very similar to the Social Style model, Interaction Styles provides people with a quick snapshot of behavior but has the advantage of linking to the Myers-Briggs and Temperament Model – each of the 16 Myers-Briggs personality types has an associated Temperament and Interaction Style.
Thomas Kilman Conflict Mode Instrument™
The Thomas Kilman Conflict Mode Instrument, otherwise known as the TKI™ is designed to assess an individual’s behavior in conflict situations. The instrument helps people to look at their conflict styles on the two dimensions of Assertiveness and Cooperativeness. The instrument is particularly useful for assisting teams in understanding how they can adopt a conflict style that is best suited for each particular problem that they may be trying to solve in the workplace.
FIRO-B™ and FIRO-Element B™
The FIRO-B and FIRO Element B, otherwise known as the Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation-Behavior™ Instrument is a tool which helps individuals understand their interaction approaches. The instrument is especially useful in helping leaders look at team dynamics and leadership styles in their organizations.
The Five Dysfunctions of Team – Team Assessment
Oftentimes when we are called in to help teams work better together, we use the methodology developed by Patrick Lencioni, called, “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team”. This model, when combined with our expertise in the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® is a powerful model for helping teams to build toward the 5 key components of teamwork which include: Building Trust, Mastering Conflict, Achieving Commitment, Embracing Accountability and Focusing on Results. We use tools and techniques throughout the program which ground people in the practicality of how to use the MBTI as a tool to foster these five team challenges.
