When assessing talent, you must consider the many factors that encompass the “whole” person. Forty years of rigorously validated research, both academically and in thousands of workplaces across the globe, has taught us these factors include five sciences:
- Behaviors (DISC)
- 12 Driving Forces (Motivators)
- Personal Skills (DNA)
- Personal Acumen (HD)
- Emotional Intelligence (EQ)
The secret to reaching peak performance as an individual — in addition to hiring, leading, and engaging others effectively — lays squarely within understanding, objectively measuring, and then implementing developmental strategies around these five sciences.
