Assessments

PPS International Limited offers assessments and inventories including Interaction Style self-profiles to measure behaviors style preferences, the Lockwood Leadership Assessment multi-rater (360 instrument) and team performance surveys and many, many more. We are also distributors of the Organizational Savvy assessment, Harrison Assessment (job fit profile), Hogan Leadership Series, eQui and more.

The first step in creating outstanding performance is to determine where you are currently. We accomplish this in a variety of ways. Climate surveys help establish a baseline of attitudes, opinions and morale. Multi-rater (sometimes called 360-degree reviews) gauge the results and means by which individuals are achieving results. Instruments determine the style preferences individuals possess. All of these assessments and surveys are available to clients interested in measuring the performance of individuals and organizations. Beyond that, feedback tools are a way of gathering performance-related information and providing it to others so that they can monitor and adjust their own performance.

Lockwood Leadership Assessment (360°Multi-Rater)

Feedback is a critical component of both learning and improving performance whether for an individual or a group. Leaders who seek out feedback gain insights into personal strengths and development opportunities. This inventory is available in generic formats for supervisors, managers, HR Managers, and senior executives. It is also available in a variety of languages including German, English and Spanish.

The Lockwood Leadership Assessment multi-rater feedback instrument, unlike most instruments of this kind, is simple to use and customize. Data can be collected via the internet, which eliminates the need for paper and pencil administration and also ensures confidentiality and accuracy.

Interaction Style® Profile

Leaders and team members must consistently communicate and work with people who have a variety of ways of working. The Interaction Style® profile provides insight into preferences and how flexible in behaviors individuals are.

Seventy-five percent of the people we deal with are different than ourselves. It is important to be flexible and tailor speech, body language, and approach so that others become more open to listen and accept ideas. This is especially important in critical business situations, such as when you are selling, problem solving, working on a team or providing customer service.

When you can spot cues and subtle differences in the way people behave, you can effectively deal with team members, employees, peers and customers.

Team Success Questionnaire

The Team Success Questionnaire is a multi-rater survey that can be implemented as part of team interventions and team building sessions. When used to plan interventions and team sessions, the results report provides team leaders and members with information about how the overall team is performing in areas such as clarity of role, motivation, alignment, and handling of conflict. One report is generated for the entire team—allowing for group debriefing and strategizing. Can be customized and aligns well with many popular team models.
