Seeing Each Other With 20/20 Vision
Employee Relations Content Area
 
Get insights on a variety of assessment instruments that measure personal strengths, limitations, observable behaviors and individual preferences. Includes synopses on Herrmann Brain Dominance, DISC, Hidden Motivators, Myers Briggs and Gallup Strengths Finder 2.0. The information gained from assessments gives employees an abundance of self-knowledge and makes it possible for them to see others with a fresh set of “eyes.” The result? Individuals are more confident while developing the ability to respect others and listen to their opinions with an open mind. Team cohesion, collaboration and camaraderie are improved and productivity is increased. 

Organizational gains from assessments include the ability to put individuals in jobs appropriate to their skills. Assessments can provide a baseline for adapting and increasing performance as the company works to move more rapidly into the future taking into account the chaotic 21st century marketplace. Join us at the Buckhead GEM on January 6th and get information on a variety of assessments, enabling you to make an informed decision on the best choice for your company.
