Work+Life Personality Made Easy: Understanding Personality in the Workplace
Available in the online classroom or via live virtual training
Online (pre-workshop) assessment required.
Science notes that 60% of personality is inherited while 40% comes from environmental and other elements. The Big Five Traits are linked to body chemistry and hormones and provide insights about one’s inborn behavioral tendencies and preferences, as well as your natural strengths and blind spots.
Using results from The WorkPlace Big Five Profile™, you will learn about how your own traits tend to affect you when you are at work, potentially helping you or hindering you with your daily work activities. It can also help you understand how similar or not you are to the personalities of other people that you work with every day.
The WorkPlace Big Five Profile™ assessment reveals an individual’s five personality supertraits and 23 sub-traits that simply and clearly explain work-related behaviors found in day-to-day encounters with coworkers, employees, managers and colleagues. Using straightforward, digestible graphs and neutral, work-centric language, the WorkPlace Big Five Profile™ provides the highest level of insight to participants and organizations. It complies with all International Test Commission guidelines and is approved for use in hiring by employment attorneys.
The WorkPlace Big Five Profile™ is based on the Five-Factor Model (FFM) of personality which defines personality through five distinct dimensions called supertraits—(1) Need for Stability,(2) Extroversion, (3) Originality, (4) Accommodation, and (5) Consolidation. Different from type-based instruments, a five-factor model based assessment provides users with a specific position within a series of personality traits which offers increased precision in interpretation.The FFM has been heavily researched and validated over time, is one of the most psychometrically valid and reliable assessments in the industry, and is considered the gold standard of personality measurement by psychologists and researchers.
Reports provide insights into individuals’ work styles and preferences that can be leveraged to accomplish business objectives including:
Developing effective leaders
Improving team communication and productivity
Selecting best-fit candidates
Understanding behavioral tendencies and how they affect employee alignment, engagement and productivity
Achieving workplace goals and objectives effectively
Increasing individual performance
The assessment is easily completed online in 15 minutes or less and reveals an individual’s five personality supertraits and 23 sub-traits.
