Workplace Personality

The Personality assessment (HPTI) is grounded in the ‘Big 5′ model, assessing traits that predict job success and risks for derailment. It delivers powerful insights into an individual’s openness to change, whether they thrive in competitive environments, how they adjust to stressful situations and whether they are more likely than others to strive for success. This can be as applicable to leaders or potential leaders and individuals’ ‘fit’ for certain roles.

Behavioural assessment

Using four main profile factors: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance, Thomas’ Personal Profile Analysis (PPA) provides information on an assessment taker’s fears, motivators, values and behaviours. Steve has been using this assessment for more than 30 years for exploring behavioural fit for a role or future role, improving communication with individuals, identifying areas for development and recruitment. It is straightforward to complete, easy to explain and non-threatening as it focuses on behaviours at work.

Emotional Intelligence assessment (TEIQue)

The TEIQue can be used for a number of purposes, including appraisals, leadership training, work and life coaching, talent development, measuring employee morale, team building, recruitment and selection and many more.  It is invaluable for developing self-awareness and how your emotions impact on managing relationships with others.

Here is an example of using psychometric assessments to identify Cambridge Marketing College’s postgraduate students’ leadership potential here.

Here are just some of the organisations that Steve has provided training and development for.

People development support

Bax Interaction has particular interests in the behavioural aspects of marketing and in developing people and teams. Psychometrics can provide a powerful basis for developing awareness and workplace behaviours. This has the potential to be closely linked to understanding customer behaviours and how to develop effective interactions between your organisation and market(s).
