Executive Coaching and Training can be highly effective tools for facilitating sustainable growth and change in an organization. However, often times, coaches and trainers are at the mercy of what individual leaders or organizations think they need. To bring measurable value to their client organizations, and elevate their role to an indispensable strategic business partner, coaches and trainers can use a variety of assessment tools to validate perceptions and provide reliable information upon which to base developmental action plans. The use of objective data can help your clients increase self-awareness and identify development areas with the greatest potential for success.
The Profiles Performance Indicator is a personality style assessment that measures an individual’s motivational intensity and behaviors related to productivity, quality of work, initiative, teamwork, problem solving, and adapting to change, as well as response to stress, frustration, and conflict.
The output from this assessment serves as a “manager’s operating manual” for an employee, which helps managers better motivate, coach, and communicate with the employee. This tool can be used to help an individual better understand their strengths, weaknesses, and tendencies, as well as to help a manager understand how maximize employee performance. It also serves as the basis for the Team Analysis (see next column).
The CheckPoint Management System is a 360-degree assessment used primarily to evaluate the effectiveness of your managers and leaders. This survey combines feedback from direct reports, peers, supervisors, and even customers, with a personalized program for developing specific leadership skills based on that feedback. This process highlights a manager’s job performance in 8 skill clusters: communication, leadership, adaptability, relationships, task management, production, development of others, and personal development.
The CheckPoint 360 helps managers identify and prioritize their own development opportunities. And, it helps the organization to better focus management training and development investments, proactively uncover misaligned priorities between senior executives and front-line managers, and surface management issues that could lead to low employee productivity, morale, satisfaction, and turnover.
