How Does Talent Ark Unlock Success In You and Your Team ?
Talent Ark believes everyone has the right to succeed. To unwrap this crucial question and unlock success, we need to first realize that the potential in each of us and our organisations is often hidden beneath or clouded by the heaps of endless urgent tasks, experiences with people around us, expectations, successes and failures from our work, and comments from bosses, staff, colleagues, clients, family and friends.
How Highly Should We Think Of Ourselves ?
Without an objective assessment, we tend to think of ourselves higher than what we really are or lower than what we should. Think too lowly of ourselves: we lose our confidence in what we are actually good at; thus losing the battle before it starts. Think too highly of ourselves: we enter into oblivion which is the pitfall of many entrepreneurs and executives today.
Either way, the lack of accurate awareness of ourselves and our community, hides the key to success in our lives. The key to unlock success thus lie in an accurate objective awareness of ourselves. This enables us to maximise our strengths and minimise our weaknesses. It also helps us become better communicators, make better decisions, increase our effectiveness and productivity and become more strategic in our learning and development.
So What If We Become Self-Aware ?
Becoming self-aware is an important first step to becoming successful. What we do with our discovery determines the outcome. The danger of knowing ourselves and our team and doing nothing about it to improve, is that we can become too comfortable and complacent and thus fall into the same pits each time. This is what some of us call “self-sabotage”.
What Is Success ?
The motivation to do anything about ourselves or our team is success. But by “success”, we do not mean just becoming rich and famous albeit desirable. Successful living may or may not make you the next richest person on earth; but it certainly means to make your years on earth count for something to you and your community.
How Can We Help ?
At Talent Ark, we help unlock the potential in you and your organisation through providing practical scientific assessments, analysis, benchmarking, consultation, training and coaching in the five sciences of the personality and talent spectrum: Behaviour, Motivator, Acumen, Emotional Intelligence and Competence.
All these can be carried out in the form of group workshops such as team building workshops or one-to-one consultations.
What Are The Five Sciences?
Success in life, work and relationships stems from understanding and having a sense of self – of deeply comprehending who you are, what you do and how you do it. The research-based, validated TTI Success Insights® assessment we use at Talent Ark measures Behaviors in five behavioral dimensions using the DISC theory. DISC measures Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance and was first developed by William Moulton Marston. Our Behaviors/DISC assessment is key in helping people understand HOW they behave and their ability to interact effectively with others in work and life, as well as how they respond to the following challenges:
- Problems and challenges
- Influencing others
- Pace of environment
- Rules and procedures
While Behaviors illustrate the HOW of our actions and decision-making, Motivators 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 motivations explain the key driving forces about someone’s on-the-job performance and why they act a certain way. TTI Success Insights’ assessments measuring Motivators examine the relative prominence of six basic interests (or Motivators; ways of valuing life) and
- Theoretical — The discovery of truth
- Utilitarian — Money and what is useful; ROI
- Aesthetic — Form and harmony
- Social — An inherent caring for people; helping others
- Individualistic — Personal power, influence and renown
- Traditional — A system for living
Possessing a high level of acumen means someone has the ability to make good judgments and quick decisions due to their natural abilities and/or capacities. A person’s acumen — or keenness and depth of perception or discernment — is directly related to his or her level of performance. The stronger a person’s acumen, the more aware that person is of their reality. TTI Success Insights’ assessments measuring Acumen examine the dimensional balance of six areas as they pertain to internal and external factors:
- Understanding others
- Practical thinking
- Systems judgment
- Sense of self
- Role awareness
- Self direction
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. TTI Success Insights’ assessments measuring competencies examines the level of development of 25 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 25 competencies, TTI Success Insights examines the following personal skills:
- Appreciating Others
- Conceptual Thinking
- Conflict Management
- Continuous Learning
- Creativity and Innovation
- Customer Focus
- Decision Making
- Employee Development/Coaching
- Futuristic Thinking
- Goal Orientation
- Influencing Others
- Interpersonal Skills
- Personal Accountability
- Planning and Organizing
- Problem Solving
- Project Management
- Self Starting
- Time and Priority Management
- Understanding Others
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 the workplace. With rapidly changing conditions in the business world, individuals with high emotional intelligence (EQ) have greater mental health, exemplary job performance and strong leadership skill. TTI Success Insights’ assessments measuring EQ examine five key areas as they pertain to intrapersonal and 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
