Here are some signs:

  • Positive attitude

  • Value themselves highly

  • Confident in their own ability and beliefs

  • In control of their lives

  • They have a feeling of empowerment

  • An energy that enables them to think of ideas and do what they want

Personality Tests

Career Coaching

Increasing companies are using personality profiling as a tool to help them recruit and build high achieving teams plus develop their leaders of the future. 

For your personal use, these tools can also help you to clarify your own career selection and transition. We’ll  look at three of the most well known of these tests: Myers Briggs, Belbin and Thomas International.

Meet The Team

Career Coaching

Have you ever worked on a winning team?
If you have you’ll know the living spirit that imbues and influences every team member – a spirit that can inspire a whole team to extra ordinary levels of performance.
Have you ever worked in a team with sinking morale?
If you have you’ll know the way that the atmosphere can demoralise even the most motivated individuals.
A team exists as a living system, not simply a collection of individual parts. That’s why its so important when you’re in the process of changing career or finding a new job to do your due diligence on the team you’ll soon be part of.

So make sure you:

Do your homework :- gather information about the team. You can glean a lot from the company website if they have individual team profiles. Or ask your recruitment consultant or the person who is recruiting for the role.
