What is it?

Psychometrics is the theory and technique of psychological measurement.

There are various ways to measure and report on skills, knowledge, abilities, aptitudes  and personality traits.  There's a range of tools that we can use through the Myers Briggs Company, Saville, BeTalent and ABLE but I tend to focus on the tools below for individuals and teams as these offer people the most insight in developing their leadership skills.

What are the Benefits?

Psychometric tools are a great way to provoke discussion, learning and insight.  Depending on the tool being used, the benefits might include:

  • Clarity on your strengths and areas for development

  • Understanding yourself and others

  • Enhancing your emotional intelligence

  • Improve your resilience and well-being

  • More constructively dealing with conflict

  • Careers guidance for getting started

  • Improving your interpersonal and communication skills

  • Enabling you or your team to deliver improved performance

  • Recruiting the right people for the role

How does it work?

Each tool is used slightly differently, so it would depend on which one we're using.  The tools are proprietary and there would be a charge from the Myers Briggs Company or BeTalent for usage.
