Predictive Index®

 

Energize Your Team for Action and Results

Getting the right people in the right roles and keeping them engaged is the key to an efficient and productive workforce in today’s business environment.

The Predictive Index (PI) provides a holistic view of the individual being assessed and measures individual behaviour, cognitive ability, and influencing skills.

It helps organizations to make data driven decisions in order to:

1. Find and hire the right people

2. Build teams and develop leaders

3. Build trust and manage transitions

4. Improve productivity and drive revenue

By understanding the natural workplace behaviours of prospective and existing employees, the PI provides the unique ability to create, manage, and coach your team using people-smart data.

Make people decisions with confidence.

Solving the People Puzzle

Predictive Index (PI) provides the people piece that your business decisions may have been lacking. It allows you to:

Match people and jobs: Jobs have personalities just like people. Learn what personality is most likely to succeed in each of your jobs. Match them and your hiring success and retention ratios will significantly improve.

Build and improve teams: When the personalities of individual team members are understood, it becomes possible to understand how to help poorly functioning teams operate in a more productive fashion. Teams that are built properly in the first place are more likely to accomplish their objectives.

Diagnose and treat organizational dysfunction: By understanding the people in your company and how they are likely to work, you will better understand challenges and what can be done to fix them.

Enable self-knowledge for improvement: It is very difficult for managers to motivate and lead others until they have some insights into their own behaviour and understand how it may be affecting others.
