Instigate ‘light bulb moments’ for your people in any role by using the right behavioural profiling tool.
Behavioural profiling is a great way of assessing and identifying the behavioural ‘default’ settings in any of us and if applied correctly, it can hugely improve the self awareness of any of us in the workplace.
Put simply, profiling identifies the sub conscious behaviours that make up our ‘preferences’, and those that we often retreat to when we are under pressure. Proper profiling is able to ‘type’ people, so they can identify themselves, as well as those similar to, somewhat different, and very different to themselves.
So How Can It Be Used and Applied?
The outputs to behavioural profiling can be used in a number of ways. We use them with our clients in the following three ways:
1. Behavioural Development – As an integral part of our unique approach to behavioural training, an essential starting point is self-awareness and self acknowledgement. Behavioural profiling is a key part of that process and helps people become more effective influencers by learning to properly ‘style flex’ in certain situations.
2. Recruitment – To assist businesses with internal and external recruitment. Behavioural profiling is not about right and wrong, good or bad, it is about how ‘appropriate’ the person is for the job in question based on their behavioural preferences and ‘defaults’.
3. Team working – To help businesses improve the effectiveness of team work both within and across teams. High performing teams are in part high performing because of the cross section of behavioural preferences and skills within the team and the understanding between individuals. By helping people to work better together by understanding their own and others’ behavioural preferences is very powerful.
What Profiling Tools Do We Use?
There are a number of choices here, and many organisations tend to adopt one model or product and develop the thinking and terminology that comes from it to be cultural so everyone ‘speaks the same language’.
We have developed our own ‘in house’ generic model that uses the four style quadrant origin of most modern licensed products. We include access to our own on line questionnaire and report outputs for clients as part of our behavioural development programmes which is a very accurate and effective tool.
There is no extra per delegate cost for this tool being implemented in conjunction with a workshop or programme run by us.
Clients can also buy this service in isolation if required and fees are charged per questionnaire and profile report.
There are also a number of branded licensed products on the market which all have their place and fee structure set by the brand owner and at least one member of our team is licensed to facilitate the questionnaire & reports, and deliver debrief workshops in each one of the below.
- Insights Discovery
- Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTi)
- Thomas International DISC
Each of these products requires the completion of a questionnaire, and then provision of a personalised report.
We regularly run one day workshops for a group of, for example, 6 to 12 delegates to help them understand and digest their report, so as to begin using this insight in the workplace.
