Assessments

Insight is Everything

The spark of true understanding. Insight is the catalyst for meaningful change. Learning instruments work because they provide an “aha” experience—a moment of truth that makes the learning more powerful. Instrumented learning leads to greater change because it inspires people and organization to personally invest themselves in the process. Unleash the power of insight with Inscape’s time-tested learning instruments.

We are independent distributors for the following Inscape Publishing assessments. We frequently use one or more of them in work with our clients, and find them remarkably helpful in shrinking the learning curve and producing results more quickly. The assessments are also available for your own purchase and use by contacting us.

Everything DiSC ® Workplace

New in 2009, the Everything DiSC® Workplace assessment provides an informative and user-friendly format for optimizing workplace relationships, one relationship at a time. The assessment can be used with everyone in an organization, regardless of title or role, to improve the quality of the workplace by providing a practical and useful tool for learning to understand and value different behavioral and communication styles. Clients familiar with the DiSC®  assessment tool especially like the revised circle graph format and the ability for follow-up with the DiSC®  Comparison Reports: follow-up reports that can be created for any two participants to illustrate their similarities and differences.

The Everything DiSC ® Workplace assessment helps individuals and organizations:

  • Establish effective and respectful working relationships
  • Overcome the obstacles that different styles present
  • Optimize team performance
  • Provide a practical and valuable framework for understanding different communication styles

If communication is limiting your potential and diminishing your success in the workplace, the Everything DiSC® Workplace will help you turn that around so that communication is the reason you are reaching your potential and achieving new heights of success.

Everything DiSC ® Manager

Complement to Everything DiSC®  Workplace, this assessment is designed specifically for managers, providing a useful and practical format to teaching managers how to bring out the best in each employee. The assessment helps managers recognize, understand and value the styles of the people they manage, and offers suggestions for optimizing communication and inspiring top performance. The result is managers who adapt their styles to manage more effectively, and thus, have higher performing employees and work teams.

Ideal for new and seasoned managers, the Everything DiSC®  Manager helps individuals and organizations:

  • Minimize staffing issues related to communication
  • Decrease turnover
  • Optimize performance and minimize obstacles
  • Fully develop an employee’s potential

DiSC® Classic

The foundation of personal and professional success lies in understanding yourself, understanding others, and realizing the impact of personal behavior on others. DiSC® Classic is used to improve performance, deal more effectively with conflict, and value differences. It is a multi-level learning instrument that helps individuals assess to what degree they utilize each Dimension of Behavior in a situation. The instrument then provides feedback designed to help people in your organization:

  • build productive teams
  • develop effective managers
  • train a powerful sales force
  • improve customer service
  • ease frustration and conflict

Discovering Diversity Profile®

Our increasingly diverse society is reflected in growing workforce diversity. Leading organizations acknowledge that working successfully with others who don’t share the same background, beliefs, or traditions is a top priority in today’s workplace. Employees need help in assessing their behavior toward people who are different from themselves. And they must understand the benefits of changing negative attitudes and resistance into appreciation and cooperation.

Designed to help individuals look honestly at themselves to identify attitudes and behavior that stand in the way of teamwork, the Discovering Diversity Profile® provides a safe way to explore the complex, powerful issues surrounding diversity.

The Discovering Diversity Profile® helps people in your organization:

  • discover their personal comfort level with people different from themselves
  • understand the impact of their behavior on others
  • assess the accuracy of their knowledge about differences
  • limit the influence of stereotypes
  • reduce conflict
  • transform knowledge into acceptance and empathy
  • embrace diversity as a source of organizational strength

Work Expectations Profile®

Work expectations are those things people consider likely to happen in their job situation, either now or in the future. Whether spoken or unspoken, met or unmet, expectations have a powerful impact on our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and play a key role in driving our attitudes. Research shows that people who have clearly defined, well-communicated expectations find more satisfaction and success in their work than people whose expectations go unspoken or unrealized. And companies that employ satisfied, successful people reap the rewards of increased productivity and reduced turnover.

The Work Expectations Profile® is not about getting the organization to meet everyone’s expectations. It’s about personal accountability.

The Work Expectations Profile® helps the people in your organization:

  • discover what are their most important workplace expectations
  • learn how to communicate their expectations to others
  • get feedback on managing their expectations
  • improve their outlook and enhance their attitude toward work
  • identify their compensation expectations

Time Mastery Profile®

Setting priorities and managing time effectively is basic to managing individual and organizational performance. The pressure to find innovative ways to achieve goals, pay attention to the competition, respond quickly to customer needs, and enjoy life outside of work is even more intense in today’s less structured, information-driven workplace. Meeting the daily challenge of managing professional and personal responsibilities requires a learning strategy designed to meet individual needs.

The Time Mastery Profile® helps people in your organization:

  • discover their time-management strengths
  • develop new skills for improved performance
  • focus on priorities
  • increase productivity
  • meet customer needs
  • respond to opportunities
  • reduce stress

Personal Listening Profile®

Good communication is one of the most valued skills in the workplace. And effective listening is crucial to communicating productively inside the organization and meeting the competitive challenges outside the organization. The Personal Listening Profile® helps people become active, purposeful listeners in a wide variety of situations for more productive communication.

The Personal Listening Profile® helps people in your organization:

  • discover their natural approach to listening
  • capitalize on their listening strengths
  • learn how different listening approaches impact listening effectiveness
  • improve their ability to understand the purpose of different communications
  • use listening approaches appropriate to the situation
  • overcome listening barriers and reduce conflict
  • enhance individual and team performance

Team Dimensions Profile®

Successful team members don’t do the same thing at the same time. They do the right thing at the right time. And while team members work together toward a common goal, individuals still must play their individual roles in the process. As organizations rely more and more on teams to innovate, problem solve, produce, and compete at the speed of change, clearly understanding and capitalizing on individual approaches to group processes is the bottom line on creating high performance teams.

The Team Dimensions Profile® helps teams in your organization:

  • identify individual strengths and approaches to teamwork
  • clarify team members’ roles
  • reinforce the contributions of every team member
  • reduce project cycle time and increase productivity
