Personality traits are a strong indicator of who can successfully take on executive-level roles — including how well a physician could lead a department or entire organization in the healthcare or life sciences fields or a professor could lead a traditional business group.
Organizations can use these assessments to help determine how well an individual matches their unique definition of what “leader” means to suit their needs.
And we use these assessments to help us identify potential leaders and introduce them to organizations that presently have leadership selections, on-boarding, and retention challenges that need to be met.
Studies show that the most successful physician leaders:
- Express ideas and opinions confidently
- Motivate others to perform at their best
- Build alignment among others from within various functional areas
- Recognize problems and opportunities
- Solve problems strategically
- Think strategically about growth, process improvements, and gaining competitive advantage
- Take action that challenges and inspires the status quo
- Make tough decisions willingly
What makes you tick?
The best leadership assessment tools help you discover three things that are deeply imbedded within you:
- Your key motivators
- Your valued behaviors
- Your career interests
ProMotion Career Management uses a validated leadership assessment that measures over 25 different personality traits and motivational factors that correlate with job-related behaviors.
This data provides a baseline of where you are today, and a tool for paving the road for where you would like to go in your career.
What is your “value quotient?”
This leadership profiling is key for a number of reasons, all based upon identifying and fully expressing your value.
Think about this in baseball terms: You play a great second base and are a dependable hitter. But will just saying that be good enough at contract time? Of course not. You need stats, objective and granular talking points that accurately shine the brightest light possible on who you are and what you do.
Our leadership assessment profile, along with other personal discussions with you, help truly define and express your value in ways that are critical to your professional growth and success. In fact, we will be using this profile as a baseline when engaging you in every single one of our other services.
After all, before you can fully express and feel your value, you need to fully understand what it is.
Companies plan for — and pay for — “high value”
Why is a five-dollar bill worth more than a one-dollar bill? Both are comprised of the same paper content and inks, and are the same size. Their only difference is the images that are printed on them.
The five is worth more than the one because we all mutually agree that the five has more value.
While simplistic, there are elements of this within the workplace. Some people are considered more valuable simply because others are perceiving them as more valuable, while others are seen as more valuable because of their measurable performance. Wouldn’t it be great if you scored high on both scales?
Leadership assessment helps you have the tools to build others’ perceptions about you as well as your own ability to thrive at doing what you do best.
It helps take the guesswork out of hiring leaders by objectively identifying how well they will fit into the organization’s culture, their team, and their day-to-day responsibilities.
And once companies understand that you “are going places,” the good ones will actually help you maximize your core strengths, help you improve your productivity, and do everything they reasonably can to help keep you satisfied within the scope of your current position and their plans for you in the future.
