A Multi-Science Approach to Assessments
Multiple sciences progressively reveal more of the entire person — what you do, how you do it and why you do the things you do. We also embrace a philosophy that measures both the presence and absence of certain desirable behaviors, and others, such as acceptance and avoidance.
Our Assessments Accurately Measure
Our scientifically validated behavioral assessments will give you deep, personal insights into yourself that you would expect from a psychologist. Our scientific assessments are detailed and will give you an accurate description of who you are and why you do things the way you do, giving you insight and self-awareness.
There are four Behaviors using the DISC theory. DISC is the most widely used behavioral assessment tool. DISC measures Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance. Our Assessment is key to helping people understand HOW they behave and improve their ability to interact effectively with others at work and in all relationships. In discovering your own traits, you will learn more effective ways of communicating and understanding yourself and others better. DISC measures how a person behaves and communicates with others.
Success in life, work and relationships stems from understanding and having a sense of self and of deeply comprehending who you are, what you do and how you do it, as well as how you respond to the following challenges:
- Problems and challenges
- Influencing others
- Pace of environment
- Rules and procedures
- Self Awareness
- Commonly used for: Better communication to Improve relationships or teamwork and understand your personal communication styles and others.
12 DRIVING FORCES (MOTIVATORS)
Whereas Behaviors illustrate the HOW of our actions and decision-making, Driving Forces explain the WHY behind your actions and passions. Motivators, based on Eduard Spranger’s theory of human motivation, are the windows through which an individual views the world. These intrinsic motivators explain the key driving forces about peoples' performance and why they act a certain way. Our assessments examine the relative prominence of 12 basic interests, ways of valuing life, and include:
- Theoretical — The discovery of truth
- Utilitarian — Money and what is useful
- Aesthetic — Form and harmony
- Social — An inherent caring for people; helping others
- Individualistic — Personal power, influence and renown
- Traditional — A system for living
- Analytical problem solving
- Conflict management
- Continuous learning
- Customer service
- Decision making
- Employee development/Coaching
Each Driving Force aspect represents a lens through which we view the world, what we consider to be fulfilling and rewarding, and what sparks our initiative.
Each of us has primary drivers, which are our most potent protagonists. They are the forces propelling the story of our lives forward.
EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE (EQ):
The ability to understand one’s own and other people’s emotions in the decision-making process is critical in facilitating high levels of collaboration and productivity and achieving superior performance in our lives. With rapidly changing conditions in the world, individuals with high emotional intelligence (EQ) have greater mental health, and better results.Understanding our emotions is KEY to creating a life we want and manifesting our dreams. TTI Success Insights’ assessments measures:
EQ examines five key areas as they pertain to interpersonal relations:
• Self awareness — Understanding one’s moods, emotions and drives, as well as their effect on others
• Self regulation — Ability to control or redirect disruptive impulses and moods; also to think before acting
• Motivation — Passion to work for reasons beyond money or status; pursuit of goals with energy and persistence
• Empathy — Ability to understand the emotional makeup of other people
• Social skills — Proficiency in managing relationships and building networks.
For many jobs, it’s not always the technical skills that will catapult employees to success, but rather the personal skills, or “soft skills,” that are often transferable to different jobs. In the workplace, it’s these intangible, indefinable soft skills, such as leadership, persuasion and playing well with others, that complement one’s technical knowledge. These are the qualities that define us as people and are typically bottom line indicators of employee job performance. Our assessments examine the level of development of 23 unique personal skills, ranking them from the most well developed skill to the one requiring the greatest level of further development. While not every job requires the development of all 23 competencies, knowing what your workplace values and honing your abilities to match those are critical.
TTI is powered by THREE DECADES of research and conducted by Target Training International, Ltd.
TTI has been researching, testing and developing leadership in the realms of human behavior, skills and competencies, motivation, emotional intelligence (EQ), workforce performance, and sales since 1984. This research helped give birth to the assessment industry and has laid the foundations for companies like eHarmony®.
They embrace a philosophy that measures both the presence and absence of behavior.
With a data pool of millions of individuals collected over several decades, the research team leverages four patents, state-of-the-art technology and more than 90 years of collective business, academic and neurological experience to shape our findings. The fully equipped Center for Applied Cognitive Research, in partnership with BrainMaster Technologies, allows them to continue researching and validating assessments with brain activity. They rely on data norming, Cronbach’s alpha structured equation modeling, sampling and rigorous data analysis, tested, pilot studies to maintain the highest standards of research integrity.
Their patents prove the accuracy of our assessments.
TTI SI has been awarded four U.S. patents that illustrate their commitment to innovation and research in the realm of the Science of Self™. Their patents support and shape assessments in the five sciences. This commitment to research innovation also builds and enhances the reliability and validity of the assessments — and increases our ability to touch people's lives and enhance careers, while improving the productivity and performance of organizations.
In July 2015, TTI SI secured its fourth U.S. patent, showcasing what people say about themselves when taking assessments is consistent with their brain's response, as seen in electroencephalography (EEG) scans.
