Talent becomes performance, the added value of assessments?
Entrepreneurs, directors, managers, everybody is becoming more aware of the power of human capital in an organisation. Your employees give your company distinctive character, they directly affect customer satisfaction, they enable you to run your business successfully, or not. You have set a mission, vision and entrepreneurs strategy, but how do you make that strategy into a success? How do you get your employees to support this new strategy focussed on customer satisfaction, focused on increased efficiency, focused on higher quality or focused on entrepreneurship…
Every individual is made up of unique building blocks, their needs, talents and abilities. These are different to the individual’s behaviour. Under the surface affecting this behaviour that you can see, are motivations, needs, values and standards. There are other factors that affect behaviour too, like the surroundings, ie your organisation. They either affect positively or negatively, because you want to affect people’s behaviour positively, you need to get to the talents, motivations and needs underneath. Generally people don’t easily disclose these. And that’s where assessments have an added value.
Personal and Team Analyses
Windkracht-11 and psychological advice bureau Castor Fiber Group have together developed a powerful tool. An (online) assessment providing a clear personal blueprint. The method consists of analyses of capacities, competence, talents and motivations; and it consists of the following elements:
- needs, thought processes and personality traits
- competence and capacities
- visible behaviour and interactive style
It is possible to use several analyses or a combination of analyses depending on the requirements. Some examples are selection, mobility, choice of profession, development, re-integration and reviews.
The analysis is a good starting point for a personal development plan. It helps to determine neccesary education/ training sessions and offers managers extra support to successfully execute performance management or competence management. Providing the right basis for a dialog. That is the assessments added value.
For team programs and management development programs, the analysis also offers a good starting point. The strength of connection, the strength of diversity in a team and also the risks become visible. What do we need to work on together, what do we develop and what do we keep?
