Teamwork and personality "fit" are becoming more and more critical as companies move toward flattened, cross-functional and customer-focused organizations. Skill and technical competency are very important, but today many employers are telling us, "Give me someone with the right attitude and work ethic and I can train them to do the job." So how do you determine that a candidate has the right attitude or fit for your company?
There are several excellent instruments that can be used to help determine if a candidate is going to be right for your company:
- Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
- Keirsey Temperament
- Emotional Intelligence
- Communications Style
- Leadership Style
CCWA has administered these tests and many others to assist clients in their assessment and training efforts.
