As a coach, one of my primary roles is to ensure that you and your team are operating at your peak level. To achieve this, there are a number of initiatives that we need to work on, one of them being your behavioural beliefs. This is crucial as it is not your personality or your natural talent that will ensure your success, rather, it is your behaviour.
What type of Leader are you?
As part of my leadership development for business owners, senior managers and sales professionals, I highly recommend that they undertake a Selector psychometric assessment. The outcome of this assessment is increased self-awareness around your preferred styles of behaviour, what motivates you, your preferred learning style and some key ability traits, all of these factors impact on your performance. I am able to incorporate this information into my coaching of you, and in return you will be able to incorporate these findings into your and your team’s individual development training.
So what is the Selector psychometric assessment?
It is an online assessment that is followed up by an expert debriefing that I conduct 1 on 1, including a comprehensive report. The assessment measures behavioural preferences, typical reactions to pressure and stress, how you prefer to learn, preferred work environment, job ideals and more. In addition, if you are looking for a good cultural fit between your employees, and you are interested in ensuring that you have the right “bums on the right seats”, then a Selector assessment is a must have.
Who should undertake the Selector assessment?
 If you or one of your team members are wanting to improve your performance, in particular leadership or self-awareness development then Selector will benefit you
 If you are interviewing for new sales staff or managerial roles, then performing a Selector psychometric assessment is highly recommended. Research has shown that a poor candidate selection costs about 140% of their annual salary.

What’s unique about Selector professional?
Selector Professional’s strength lies in its ability to identify how much a candidate prefers to do something, and how frequently they are doing it.
These two indicators help us identify a candidate’s motivation levels, determine any performance gaps and establish any training needs.
They also give insight into any disappointments experienced in their current role – an important way to determine if the offered role will repeat or avoid these disappointments.
We also graphed the inter-quartile range for Selector Professional’s scales comparing across several occupational groups.
