In their recent article, Entrepreneur Magazine left out one of the most important qualities of a leader: understanding. One of the most frequent comments that come from employees of companies
who implement behavioral assessments is that they finally feel understood. I’ve had more people than I can could tell me that the manager who read them their assessment results “now understands me better than my spouse”. The best news is how important that understanding is to the employee. Once someone feel they are understood, they are more likely to follow your instruction, give you valuable feedback and have a positive attitude in the team.
Today it is easier than ever to gain this depth of understanding. A highly valid class of behavioral assessments can give your that data in minutes. We train managers to use that data to improve their management ability and drive up team effectiveness. Both managers and team members report a strong positive reaction to this process.
