ProfileXT® (PXT) The PXT assessment measures how well an individual fits specific jobs in your organization. The “job matching” feature of the PXT is unique, and it enables you to evaluate an individual relative to the qualities required to successfully perform in a specific job. It is used throughout the employee life cycle for selection, on-boarding, managing, and strategic workforce planning. This assessment reveals consistent, in-depth, objective insight into an individual's thinking and reasoning style, relevant behavioral traits, occupational interests, and match to specific jobs in your organization. It helps your managers interview and select people who have the highest probability of being successful in a role, and provides practical recommendations for coaching them to maximum performance.

The PPI specifically measures an individual's motivational intensity and behaviors related to productivity, quality of work, initiative, teamwork, problem solving, and adapting to change, as well as response to conflict, stress, and frustration. The output from this assessment serves as an “operator's manual” for an employee, which helps managers better motivate, coach, and communicate with the employee. It also helps to predict and minimize conflict among co-workers, and it provides crucial information for improving team selection and performance. A powerful feature of the PPI is the Team Analysis Report, designed to help managers form new teams, reduce team conflict, improve team communication, improve their ability to anticipate problems, and enhance their team leadership skills. It helps evaluate overall team balance, strengths, and weaknesses, as well as team members’ personality characteristics along 12 key factors: control, composure, social influence, analytical, patience, results orientation, precision, expressiveness, ambition, teamwork, positive expectancy, and quality of work. It also provides team leaders with practical recommendations and action steps to take in order to succeed in their jobs. www.profilesinternational.com Introducing Profiles International | 14 v9 ©2009 Profiles International, Inc.
