Psychometrics & Leadership Development
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 (formally OPP), but I tend to focus on four which I have found offer people the most insight in developing their leadership skills.
Each of the tools have been linked to the MB Company site if you're keen to get more information.
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
More constructively dealing with conflict
Careers guidance for getting started
Support in navigating a career change or getting a promotion
Improving your interpersonal and communication skills
Enabling you or your team to deliver improved performance
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 for usage.
