LEVERAGING TALENT IN THE WORKPLACE
Behavioral research suggests that the most effective people are those who understand themselves, both their strengths and weaknesses, so they can develop strategies to meet the demands of their environment.
A person’s behavior is a necessary and integral part of who they are. In other words, much of our behavior comes from “nature” (inherent), and much comes from “nurture” (our up bringing). It is the universal language of “how we act,” or our observable human behavior.
Research also shows that successful leaders and superior performers have well developed emotional intelligence skills. This makes it possible for them to work well with a wide variety of people and to respond effectively to the rapidly changing conditions in the business world. In fact, a person’s (EQ) emotional intelligence may be a better predictor of successful performance than intelligence (IQ).
COMPUTERS HAVE MANUALS—WHY NOT PEOPLE?
The key to successful people management and personal growth is knowledge of what is unique about each person’s talents. With the knowledge provided by the Behavioral Intelligence report, people can be effectively coached to optimizing their strengths to achieve the organization’s goals.
