Reduce Turnover, Hire Better with Behavioral Compatibility
Although the typical American corporation bases 80% of their hiring on the hard skills of the person (education, training, experience), 85% of turnover is due to behavioral incompatibility. Technically, they may be able to do the job, but with time you discover that they don't seem to perform and are not thriving in the position. They simply are not motivated to take on their role. We can assist you to develop a behavioral understanding of the style of the job itself, identifying the optimal work environment for a person or a position. The closer your prospect's basic style matches the successful natural style of the position, the better. An ideal profile can be then be developed to hire employees who will thrive doing what they naturally like to do best. By assessing both the job itself and the candidates, you increase your information and objectivity to produce better decisions regardless of race, gender, etc.
Considering the high cost of turnover associated with employee training and development, it is in our clients' best interests to ensure the position is suited in all aspects to the employee and vice versa. Our methods and software are validated and EEOC/ADA compliant. Evaluate each of your top candidates to learn how and whether they will achieve success for your organization.
- Will the person do the job and be satisfied?
- How will the person handle stress, work pace and work with other people?
- Why will they do the job and will they be satisfied?
- How will they perform with tight schedules or upset customers?
- Will they share and support the values of your organization?
In today's corporate climate, a focus on behavioral style is key to performance optimization.
Reduce Miscommunication, Increase Win/Win Communication
Our assessments and processes can help you reduce three important types of miscommunication that can hinder your company's performance:
that is, people who cannot accept their weaknesses along with their strengths. A "blind spot," as it is commonly called, can be extremely counterproductive if that weakness is job-related. Individuals working with people having these "blind spots" usually must compensate for those weaknesses. DISC behavioral style profiling gives insights that enable people to maximize their strengths while adapting, compensating for their weaknesses and rising to their challenges.
that is, not understanding, and therefore not appreciating, styles different from our own. This is devastating to manager/employee relationships and team building and encourages personality conflicts and counterproductive politics. We will arm you with an understanding of exactly how different styles prefer to be treated, complete with guidelines on what to do and what not to do in communicating and managing. When people understand how to adapt their style to the styles of others, it increases effective communication and encourages an atmosphere of mutual respect. We also provide methods for team engineering, which create a synergy of the strengths of each style.
that is, not understanding what behaviors are optimal for a position or role on a team. This incongruity may be on the part of management, the employee or other team members. TQM and Deming programs today are directed towards this goal of consensus on roles. Most of these programs fail in the initial stages, however, due to interpersonal and group dynamics - that is, a failure to communicate objectively, fully and openly. We can help you to create an objective and valid description of the behavioral demands of the position (or the team role) itself, and improve the communications between different styles in a group.
