It will also enable you to spend less time managing your underperformers and focus more time on those who will truly drive your business forward.
Thomas PPA takes only 8 minutes to complete. You are then provided with an initial profile detailing strengths and limitations, communication style, value to the business, top motivators, basic fears and behviour under pressure.
Thomas General Intelligence Assessment (GIA/TST) measures a person's mental horsepower. By understanding how quickly your employees and of course potential candidates can learn and retain new skills and procedures, you will have a reliable prediction of their potential to grasp or develop into a new role. You'll also get an indication of how well they'll respond to training.
And, as the market picks up, you'll have two challenges. The first is to encourage your managers to adapt in a constantly changing business environment; the second is to make sure your top performers are loyal and engaged. GIA will enable you to identify the managers with the potential to drive and manage change. It will also help you understand your employee's capabilities and enable you to develop your performers by giving them the appropriate levels of challenge in the right areas.
The Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire (TEIQue – pronounced TQ) tells you how well your people understand and manage their emotions, how well they interpret and deal with the emotions of others, and how they use this knowledge to manage relationships.
Emotionally intelligent people have self-awareness, are excellent communicators and can adapt their behaviour to a variety of situations. As a result, they are more likely to have the edge they need to lead, manage, and perform in today's competitive and complex marketplace. They are also adept at dealing with stress, low morale, conflict and change.
The TEIQue will help you identify the external candidates and employees who can thrive in a dynamic, changing environment. It can also identify the areas your people need to develop going forward. And because emotionally intelligent managers have fine-tuned people management skills, their teams tend to perform well, they're motivated and have high morale, which contributes to staff loyalty and high retention.
