The Kelsey Group has been a Value Added Associate with Target Training International (TTI) since 1999. Over the years, we’ve conducted thousands of behavioral and motivational assessments for employees or employee candidates to ensure alignment between the job and the individual. These assessments are highly validated and can be extremely useful in determining the Why and How individuals behave and communicate. These tools can identify, and in most cases eliminate, sources of conflict between co-workers and help ensure that you have the right people doing the right thing.
These assessments can help you greatly improve the quality of your team by helping:
- Identify behavioral and motivational attributes of individuals
- Recruit and retain more effective team players
- Engage and advance High Potential employees
- Identifying and eliminating potential conflicts between team members
- Ensure you have the right people in the right jobs
- Increase productivity overall
There are five primary assessments TTI leads the marketplace in:
DISC represents four areas of behaviors:
D (dominance) – how a person deals with problems/challenges
I (influence) – how a person can influence others
S (steadiness) – indicates the pace and steadiness of a person
C (compliance) – how a detail oriented/risk adverse a person is.
DISC measures observable behaviors of an individual and can indicate accurately how an individual will perform in a given position, including what value he or she will bring to a team, his or her ideal environment and possible limitations he or she may face. DISC measures HOW a person does things.
Motivators within a person create energy, drive and enthusiasm. They are the WHY behind behaviors. Our assessment measure twelve dimensions or Driving Forces among six motivation categories:
- Knowledge – whether a person is Intellectual or Instinctive
- Utility – whether a person is Resourceful or Selfless
- Surroundings – whether a person is Harmonious or Objective
- Others – whether a person is Altruistic or Intentional
- Power – whether a person is Commanding or Collaborative
- Methodologies – whether a person is Structured or Receptive
Motivators are the windows through which an individual views the world, thereby driving his or her Behaviors. Motivators reveal Why an individual acts a certain way – what motivates one to perform a job.
Acumen is assessed using three dimensions of thought, analyzing both world and self-views:
Acumen, or a person’s keenness and depth of perception, will identify how a person thinks and makes decisions and will clarify one’s natural abilities or capacities.
