Growing soft skills

Developing soft skills requires informed and deliberate practice. But most people rarely get science-based training to develop these skills. To work well with others, people need ways to develop 3 perspectives:

  1. self-awareness – one’s own similarities and differences
  2. impact on others – how others experience her/him
  3. outcomes – impact of her/his behavior others

It’s hard for people to target specific skills without self-awareness, feedback or reflection. And if an organization’s people can’t grow, they’ll stagnate. Job satisfaction will dwindle. Colleagues will look for other opportunities.

Personality is key to self-awareness

Research shows that personality is critical for helping anyone develop self-awareness, regardless of their work experience. So we created a scientifically validated personality profile to help individuals understand their personality preferences based on the Five Factor Model of personality.

Whether it’s someone on a good day, a bad day or in a team, our Big 5 Survey helps identify the innate preferences and tendencies that drive an individual’s behaviors. This survey enables individuals to develop insights into their actions and reactions to others as well as devise personal strategies to be themselves more with skill.
