Developing more self-awareness is one of the keys to being an effective leader, and that’s one of the main benefits of using time-tested and trusted personality profiles and assessments. These instruments will help employees:
- Understand their strengths and weaknesses
- Understand how they fit in with the rest of their team
- Understand how their team is being perceived by both internal and external customers
You can purchase these assessments on their own or as a part of almost any SGR Workshop. We’ve often seen teams become much more cohesive simply by taking time to talk together about the results of their assessments. Over and over we’ve found that with an increase in self-awareness also comes an increase in empathy, teamwork, and efficiency.
SGR only uses validated tools like DISC, I-OPT, and Clifton’s StrengthFinders because we all want to have confidence in the accuracy and reliability of these tools.
You can also use the DISC Assessment and the I-OPT Assessment as a part of your hiring process. Contact SGR today to find out more about how you can use assessments to improve your organization’s performance.
I Opt® stands for Input Output Processing Template. It is a tool that measures how a person perceives and processes information. How someone perceives and processes information has a profound impact on what motivates a person, how a person “sees” an issue, and how that person interacts with others on team projects. Understanding one’s own I Opt® Profile makes it possible to be more self-aware. Understanding another’s I Opt® Profile helps predict how he or she will approach any given situation.
Through I Opt® Workshops, teams recognize more than just, “We’re different.” They understand why people are different; what the implications of those differences are; and most importantly, how to maximize those differences to make them a more effective team.”
I Opt® is used in many of SGR's governance and management retreats.
DiSC® is a personal assessment tool used to improve work productivity, teamwork, and communication. DiSC® is non-judgmental and helps people discuss their behavioral differences. If you participate in a DiSC® program, you'll be asked to complete a series of questions that produce a detailed report about your personality and behavior.
The DiSC® model provides a common language that people can use to better understand themselves and to adapt their behaviors with others.
