Depending on the precise nature of your organisation – and that of the leadership team – TPP uses one or more of the following widely respected and effective tools:

MBTI

The MBTI® (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) is one of the world’s most popular personality tools. Based on the work of psychologist Carl Jung, it captures the fundamental differences between people – differences that may lie at the root of the misunderstandings and miscommunication we experience every day.

MBTI is used for a variety of purposes ranging from self-understanding and development to team building, leadership development, education, coaching and relationship counselling.

It takes the form of a self-report questionnaire and helps you:

understand yourself and others
adapt your team’s communication style to the needs of their audience
understand how best to lead people through change
facilitate teams working more effectively together

The MBTI instrument is the best known and most trusted personality assessment on the market.

Everyone at some point in their professional development wonders how they are doing. Feedback plays an important role in this self-realisation process. As individuals, we have our own perceptions as to how effective we believe we are in the workplace. But what about the impact your behaviour has on others? Do they see the same qualities in you as you see in yourself? As we work to become better leaders and managers, one of our most serious difficulties is our lack of feedback. Human Synergistics’ self-assessment tools, called the Life Styles Inventory can greatly enhance our self-awareness and improvement.

SKILLSCOPE is a 360-degree assessment that provides individuals with straightforward, practical feedback on job related skills necessary for effectiveness in a management role. SKILLSCOPE’s simplicity also makes it an ideal first step for organizations that are new to the 360-degree assessment process.

SKILLSCOPE can be used with supervisors and managers, as well as individual contributors. Easy to complete and simple to interpret, participants and raters complete a 98-item checklist organized into fifteen competencies, using a strength/development need format, rather than a numerical rating scale. SKILLSCOPE presents feedback data in a straightforward, graphic format.
