    Understanding Professional Assessments

    When:
    Wednesday, August 26th, 2020
    2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

    Overview:

    You know where you want to go, but before you can chart the path, you need to know where you are. Professional assessments arm you and your organization with data and information critical to creating learning and development experiences that have the desired impact.

    Individual assessments provide insight on everything from preferred communication styles to resiliency and emotional intelligence. 360 assessments provide opportunities to get open, honest feedback from peers, managers, and direct reports. Organizational assessments provide information about an organization’s culture, its employees’ level of engagement, or its readiness to go through major changes. With so many options to choose from, how do you identify the assessment or assements that are right for your needs? In this session, we’ll discuss the various categories of professional assessments and their use cases, review samples of assessment reports, and provide you with the information you need to start using these powerful tools to achieve individual, team, and organizational success.
