Behaviors


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 Dynamic Leadership Solutions, 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

Acumen

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

Motivators

Whereas 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 ofhuman 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 include:


• 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

Competencies

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 23 unique personal skills, ranking them from the most well developed skill to the one requiring the greatest level of further development.
