Make sure your team demonstrates the right behaviours at the assessment
Behavioural assessments are the latest technique used to select contractors.
Why? It’s just like employing people. We recruit people for their technical skills but sometimes, sadly, they have to go because their behaviour falls short. Put simply, the client wants to know how your management team will behave if you win the contract.
Will your team be collaborative and show strong leadership; responding to new challenges and working positively with the client, or…
At the behavioural assessment your team will be put under pressure – lots of it;
- group work with unrealistic timescales and ever changing goals
- problem solving with inadequate and ambiguous data
- developing strategies to deal with wide ranging scenarios
And their behaviour, team and individual, closely observed, assessed and scored.
We will show your team how to come first in these behavioural assessments in four ways:
Firstly: By objectively showing each team member their personal strengths and limitations.
Profiling each team member will ensure they understand how:
- to play to their personal strengths and
- deal with their personal limitations
Secondly: Each team member will develop an in-depth understanding of what motivates and drives others in the team.
Ensuring each team member knows the strengths and limitations of every one else hence how to:
- Communicate most effectively
- Get the best out of each other
Thirdly: We’ll pinpoint the strengths and potential limitations of your team against the client’s behavioural assessment framework.
The collective profile will enable the team to plan strategies to:
- prevent communication breakdowns
- avoid internal friction
- build on their collective strengths
- deal with their collective limitations
Fourthly: Your team will learn to work together as a close-knit unit.
In group work, problem solving and responding to scenarios, each team member will:
- respect the contributions that others make
- move seamlessly into the role that suits them best
- follow proven team working processes
- develop common goals and work together to achieve them
