A sample of our many assessment tools:
TTI Success Insights®
Interacting effectively with a variety of people marks the difference between success and failure. Effective interpersonal interaction starts with an accurate perception of oneself. The TTI Success Insights® report gives executives and managers a greater knowledge of themselves and others, leading to enhanced performance.
DISC is the universal language of observable human behavior, or “how we act.” The assessment tool measures individuals’ behaviors and how they communicate. With the knowledge of DISC, individuals can learn to understand and appreciate their behavior style, and then adapt their style in communicating with others.
The DISC assessment accurately measures four dimensions of behavior, which are associated with a behavioral style:
- Dominance – How one responds to problems and challenges.
- Influence – How one influences others to his/her point of view.
- Steadiness – How one responds to the pace of the environment.
- Compliance – How one responds to rules and procedures.
The results of the DISC assessment reveal an individual’s high and low placement in each of the four dimensions that make up their unique natural and adapted behavioral styles.
Emotional Quotient (EQ)
The TTI Emotional Quotient® assessment measures an individual’s emotional intelligence with an online questionnaire that is immediately analyzed to produce a report with detailed information about the individual’s Emotional Quotient score. The higher the score in the report is, the higher the level of emotional intelligence.
Emotional Quotient is the ability to sense, understand and effectively apply the power and acumen of emotions to facilitate high levels of collaboration and productivity. In the business environment, Emotional Quotient is important because it helps you leverage your awareness of emotions for effectiveness in the workplace.
TTI Success Insights® Team
Improving Team Communication – The most effective teams have members who understand themselves, as well as each other. The TTI Success Insights® Team Behavioral Report not only defines team dynamics, but also guides team members to leverage behavioral knowledge for increased success.
360-degree assessments produce a rich feedback report complete with profiles, narratives, strategic implications, and developmental opportunities. Because the feedback is based on behaviors, change and improvement efforts are realistic and tangible.
Gallup’s Clifton StrengthsFinder (CSF) is a web-based assessment that identifies a person’s strengths as opposed to concentrating on areas of weakness. According to Gallup, “when people understand and apply their strengths, the effect on their lives and work is transformational and are six (6) times more likely to be engaged in their work and three (3) times more likely to say they have an excellent quality of life.”
The intent behind this assessment is to identify and build on the areas where a person’s greatest potential exists to grow, excel and succeed. Gallup research proves that individuals succeed when they focus on what they do best.
The CSF assessment results in:
- Revealing an individual’s 34 strengths.
- Providing an in-depth analysis of their top 5 strengths.
- Identifying their dominant talents for future development.
These strengths are clustered into the following categories:
- Relationship Building
- Strategic Thinking
From this analysis, we work together with individuals and organizations to build upon their unique combination of talents and strengths.
