Profile Evaluation System® (PES)
The Profile Evaluation System — which benefits business, industry, government, education, and other services — characterizes individuals on a number of psychological traits that are important for job performance. Results allow companies and individuals to maximize the fit between their employment demands and the abilities, aptitudes and personalities of employees or potential employees. When this fit is optimal, employees are more comfortable and productive, and in turn, inefficiency and turnover are minimized.
Hiring the right people is important, but managers should also develop the management and leadership skills of their present employees. Information about individuals and their tendencies is extraordinarily valuable in these contexts as well.
The PES identifies strengths and areas for development so that companies can make sound employment, retention, assignment, training, and promotion decisions. To help with this, the PES features 16 job-related characteristics and includes two validity scales.
Organizational Needs Inventory® (ONI)
Leaders can use the ONI to create an environment that will attract and retain better associates and, in turn, achieve better operating results. To do that, leaders must recognize that the first step is making dramatic changes in the way organizations are designed and managed. Learning how things actually are and what they can be is next. Then comes a plan for the future … a plan that is based upon a clear sense of direction and purpose. Finally, a plan of action is implemented to begin moving toward the desired future. The ONI instrument was designed to facilitate this process.
Developmental Needs Inventory® (DNI)
The Development Needs Inventory — a 360-degree instrument that is administered over the internet — was designed to help managers, supervisors and other leaders to understand their strengths and development needs better. Customized to meet the client’s needs, it consists of 10 Standard Scales and up to 13 Optional Scales. The results of the DNI, along with the Interpretation and Feedback Session, gives participants a sound basis for setting development goals and tracking their development over a period of time. The information facilitates individual growth and progress, increasing the overall effectiveness of the organization.
The Development Needs Inventory was designed with one primary objective in mind … to help leaders lead more effectively.
The DNI serves three purposes:
- To help you better understand your own managerial practices, providing a basis for increasing effectiveness as a leader and for planning a more realistic career.
- To help you understand how other people in the organization view your leadership practices and determine whether you see yourself as others see you. Armed with these insights, you can test the validity of your own self-perceptions, improve your human relations, lead and manage more effectively, and plan your career more realistically.
- To serve as a basis for setting personal development goals and for tracking your development over a period of time.
