Training and human capital development - personalized
and more target oriented by employing the Persolog Personality Profile®
No one would join a formula one car race with a four-wheel drive
car neither would anyone dare to go cross-country with a sports
car. But we usually do not try to figure out which particular pattern
of personality would match what job.
Since there is no "ideal" successful pattern of personality
there also won't be the "ideal" leadership style or the
"perfect" management method. Successful people have their
own and personal style. They use their methods according to their
patterns of personality and apply it to situations they can play
on their strengths. Successful people never try to cover a role
they don't match with.
You all might know statements like "he is a musical genius"
or she "exceptionally strong at arithmetic's". That's
all about natural talents or skills of different patterns of personality.
One might be impulsive and daring, prepared to take risks and make
decisions, the other might be cautious and conscientious, carefully
seeking alternatives and analyzing them before deciding.
Some of these properties are naturally inherited and we barely
will be able to change them. It also becomes clear to us that these
properties are not only strengths, when overused they become pitfalls.
Amiable people with a good feeling for socializing and contacting
others can be happy about this gift. But if the social network gets
too tight this person might feel trapped by numerous relationships.
Business targets might be sacrificed to keep harmonious relationships.
A strength in fast decision making can easily turn out to be the
pitfall of premature decisions. The personal strength of natural
authority can easily turn into authoritarian behavior. The strength
of making decisions based upon diligently researched facts can easily
turn into the pitfall of being unable to make any decisions within
due time.At the end there is no bad manager there are only unsuitable
situations that do not reflect people's individual strengths and
weaknesses. Managers shall be aware of the different patterns of
personality of their staff members and of themselves to select the
right task for the right person. The more we are aware about our
strengths and weaknesses the better we can make use of them.
The Persolog Personality Profile® helps us to customize
our training and consulting efforts to the very individual needs
of our participants and clients and it also may help you to be aware
about your own strengths and weaknesses and to adjust your leadership
style and your management techniques to the needs of your staff.
