Development of Executives
It is far from always possible to realise an employee’s potential and it is a challenge to push an employee from idea to action. This is often due to ineffective management. Results from an AS3 survey show that 31% of job-changers cited poor management as the main reason. While 69% of the employees commitment is directly related to the immediate manager, it is essential that the manager knows how to develop and develop their employees.
Good management requires knowing oneself as a leader. It requires that you know your employees. Identifying their talents from the Talent Test provides a deep insight into how their brain works and thus clarifies what really drives them to success. Talents Unlimited works at the cognitive level where you can uncover what pushes people into action, how they unconsciously think and act, and how to use this knowledge to ensure continuous and targeted development for employees.
When using talent, leadership development programmes can be designed to focus on increased self-insight through the talents, thus providing a self-understanding of one’s own patterns of behaviour. When a manager encounters challenges or inappropriate behaviour based on his or her own behaviour, the insight into the talents provides a number of alternative options for handling it. Additionally, it provides insight into employees and their talent mix, thereby increasing their understanding of their behaviour, drive and motivation. This gives the manager the opportunity to delegate and anticipate tasks directly, so they fit the needs of the individual employee, and ensure increased understanding and well-being. The increased self-insight will likewise give the employees more confidence in the manager. Through this, a favourable and successful collaboration will accelerate faster.
Talent- and strength-based leadership have a measurable effect on the bottom line. The best, most extraordinary executives, are those ones who manage to create the desired and optimal success for the company. These managers are able to uncover the best and most potential talents and strengths of the employees, as well as which of these must be developed in order to achieve the mentioned success. The leaders understand the importance of focusing on developing the top talents and putting together specific talents to the appropriate team roles, in order to make a team perform at an excellent level. The Talent Test gives you the necessary insight, and various studies show that talent- and strength-based leadership significantly increase employee engagement.
Statements from happy customers
"In DOVISTA, we view “selection” as one of our most important competences, as our ability to choose the right people for the right position are crucial to creating the optimal organization.
In HR we have until recently based interviews on 4-factor profiles, which is an excellent conversation tool, but at the same time we were aware that we were missing an analysis and development tool.
Therefore, we choose to enter a collaboration with Talents Unlimited on their TT38 “Talent test” which gives us new and better opportunities to put together teams and organization based on a thorough test. It gives us opportunities we haven't had before. The fact that we have chosen to become certified ourselves, is because we see the tool utilized far wider than solely for recruitment, which is why we prefer it in-house, which allows us to work more agile, by having the competence ourselves"
"Talents Unlimited conducted the TT38 Talent Test on everyone in our team. It has been an eye-opening process for all parties, where each of us has been identified with personality, values, human top talents and non-talents - as well as their paradoxes.
I, as well as employees, are now geared to individualize the types of tasks we each enjoy the most, so that we can solve them with the least possible energy and get the highest possible output.
I really feel that we have shaped the pieces and we can now start to puzzle and create some even better teams that understand and complement each other's talents.
It will give us a better bottom line. Economically as well as socially"
"Personality tests have the effect of providing a rather caricatured - and therefore limited - image of a human being. TT38 is not like that.
TT38 draws a nuanced profile that better takes into account the often very contradictory qualities we each possess. The conclusions are not limited to "blue personality with a little green, so this is who you are", but is based on data on a wide range of personal traits and takes into account the interaction between them. It is all presented in a relatively straightforward way and is complemented by knowledgeable questioning and interpretation by Talents Unlimited, allowing the final nuances to come along
The warmest recommendations from here for both recruitment, efficiency and sheer curiosity"
"In our selection of candidates, TT38 has
predicted the behavior 100% right each time!
The 3 times we chose not to follow the test
the candidate failed!"
"At Canon, we have a strong focus on hiring the right profiles that can succeed in our highly competitive market. Therefore, in collaboration with Talents Unlimited, we have used the TT38 Talent Test to define a success profile in sales that shows the talents a seller must have to be successful in our industry.
We can see that when we are loyal to our success profile, our success rate is higher in getting a salesperson to succeed in the job. This is of great benefit to both the employee and the company.
We have now gone one step further and have used the TT38 Talent Test in connection with team building in our sales team. The sellers and executives have become more focused on their talents and how they can become even better sellers, as well as how the sales team improve each other with each other's talent contributions"
