Achieve High Performance Using Key Assessments

 The right assessment data, skillfully interpreted, can advance a person’s career by years in just a few months. It can make a floundering team focused and effective in a matter of weeks. It can transform a high performing team into an organizational force of nature. It will change your business.

Delta Methodology: Replace Subjectivity with Data and Performance

Assessments replace subjective judgments with the clarity of data. A person can give feedback on your strengths or behaviors that can sink your career- but your instinctive reaction may be to deny, negate, or simply not understand it because it appears subjective. Yet when you complete the right assessments and receive the proper interpretation, it’s like seeing things clearly for the first time.

Often assessments don’t have this “ah-ha!” effect. All too often, assessments are poorly presented and inadequately interpreted, giving minimal results. While participants may find them interesting, they are quickly forgotten or improperly applied.

Use the Crucial Tools to Differentiate Your Organization

Assessments are to a high performing organization what video replay is to a professional sports team. They are the primary tool that will take the team to the championship. As with video replay, the value comes from effective interpretation. Delta Associates takes these from being an entertaining event to becoming an integral part of your culture and tools. As a result, these assessments elicit the “ah-ha!” response.

“Now I understand my behavior and the world around me – I have a tool I can use for the rest of my life.”

We use assessments that make a lasting impact and deliver lasting value.

A single assessment is like having a compass with one arrow pointing in one direction. We have developed  complete MBTI tools around a set of assessments that provides professionals with all the coordinates necessary to chart a successful career.

Our Complete Methodology Toolkit

The following are assessments that we use to strengthen performance and diagnose organizational issues:

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. The MBTI is the most well-known personality assessment in the world. There are many good personality assessments, but none that are as effective in helping a person understand- often for the first time- the way they communicate, make decisions, react under stress and best organize their life.

The FIRO-B. This assessment is fundamental to understanding how our often mixed signals make it impossible for people “read” us and for us to lead them. FIRO-B tells us unique things about ourselves and is the best measurement available of emotional intelligence.

CPI 260. This assessment is one of the few that creates a “scorecard” of how an executive compares to a database of 5,600 successful managers, senior managers and executives in North America and Europe.

The 360-degree Assessment. This assessment has become standard in organizations that want to be high performing. It is customized to the organization and industry, and gives the participant clear feedback from bosses, peers, and direct reports. We can customize the 360 to include internal or external groups. It is one of the most effective assessments available for executive development.
