About our event:

To recruit and retain top talent, an organization must exude a culture of warmth and competence. Organizations that leverage the use of psychometric assessments are creating an environment of respect and appreciation for the diversity within organizations and disrupting the way in which we develop our talent. Leaders and staff who see the unique value of people, not their ‘type’, are able to maintain a culture of trust and respect where warmth and competence co-exist.  It’s time we dig a little deeper to get new results and the world of psychometrics is taking individuals and learning professionals to new places of discovery.

Session overview

Employee engagement is stagnant across the US since 2011 per the recent Gallup studies, with the percentage of engaged employees hovering between 29 to 32% across the years. Yet the solution we often use in the world of Talent Development, to help individuals raise their own self-awareness as well as understand the value and talents of those we work with, are the same employee assessment tools that were created back in 1943. 

So how is that working for you?  Why do we continue to gravitate back to these assessment tools designed to categorize others?  Join us for an interactive presentation that explores a revolutionary approach to the world of psychometric tools designed to disrupt this pattern of categorization and transform the way organizations view the diversity of their people, including thought, communication and work style.  Experience the power of using assessment tools which pave the way to a more inclusive culture which recognizes and embraces the unique talents of its people and empowers you to provide disruptively innovative learning solutions, tools and resources. Each participate will receive access to a mobile App designed to speed read and create their own personality Splash.  Hints and tips on how to build rapport and increase connection to others is included.  And we’ll be putting the App into action in the meeting by sharing & comparing with others.
