At Meddlers, we love researching and sharing insight into people’s behavior so that they can adapt certain traits and become the best version of themselves. That’s why we’re happy to partner with Predictive Index (PI), a talent optimization interface that brings together educational content, assessment tools, teaming frameworks and much more to help individuals and groups better understand their personalities, behaviors, and motivations.
We thought it might be helpful to provide readers with a couple of PI’s specific assessments and how you can use them to better understand yourself, as well as how to optimize your rituals and routines to live a more effective and aligned life at work and home.
Not only does the PI Behavioral Assessment make a good pre-employment tool for employers to give to job candidates to get to know their motivations and behaviors on a deeper level, but it’s also useful for individuals who are trying to gain a deeper insight into their personality and behaviors through gauging their drives and needs. It’s a 5-minute multiple choice assessment that can help you understand your personality in the context of workplace behavior.
All of these choices are associated with four factors that determine workplace behavior: dominance, extraversion, patience, and formality. After completing the assessment, you’re assigned a Reference Profile that will give you a detailed insight into the way you work and the working conditions in which you would best thrive in. If you’re interested in learning more about yourself and the assessment, you can get started here.
This assessment focuses on aligning your people strategy with your business strategy. Senior leaders are asked to identify the most applicable strategic statements given their current goals and business strategy. Each statement connects to one of four strategy types. Leaders then rate their level of confidence that their company can achieve each strategic priority. Once all leaders take the assessment, we can map out where there is alignment and misalignment across the team –– the first step toward getting the team on the same page.
Each of these assessments is valuable in its own way, providing you with the insight and information you need to develop a business strategy and hit all of your goals. Engaging with PI at a system level can create common understanding and language about what makes us all great, and it can help us bring out the best in ourselves and others.
