Choosing the right person for an important position is a key management responsibility. We help you evaluate candidates using several tools:
- Behavioural event or Competency Interviews
- DISC and Motivator assessments
Behavioural event or Competency Interviews
Behavioural event interviews, (BEIs), are typically used when a client requires an assessment of a person’s competencies, (the behaviours and attitudes that make the difference between average and superior performance). Competencies are observable and measurable. BEIs can be used for selection or performance feedback and subsequent coaching to improve performance.
Competency based interviews, (CBIs), are used when an organisation has identified the competencies they require of a position and wish to ascertain whether a candidate possesses the relevant competencies at a high level. CBIs can also be used as a Performance Management tool to identify gaps in levels of performance, as well as Training and Development and Succession Planning.
DISC assessments focus on patterns of external, observable behaviours using scales of directness and openness that each DISC style exhibits.. These external behaviours can be seen and heard and with feedback and coaching, people can become significantly more effective in dealing with others, especially if they are managing a team, or people who have the potential to be ‘difficult’. It shows ways of better interacting with others who have a different DISC styles in the areas of sales, communication, learning situations and managing others.
Research shows that the most successful people share the common trait of self-awareness. They recognise the situations that will make them successful and this makes it easy for them to find ways of achieving objectives that resonate with their motivations. They also understand their limitations and where they are not effective and this helps them understand what does not inspire them, or what will not motivate them to succeed. Those who understand their natural ‘motivators’ better are far more likely to pursue the right opportunities, for the right reasons and get the results they desire. This assessment measures seven dimensions of motivation.
