“I must admit, I was a bit skeptical but intrigued what there was to learn during the PI® classes. After the 2 days of meetings, it felt like a lot of information to absorb or retain. Although, after reviewing the material a couple of times in the last few weeks, much of the class information taught really started to come together and I could not put the reference books down. Even though I realize I am fairly new at giving feedback on an individual’s PI®, the reference manuals made it much easier in analyzing anyone’s PI®.
Even before starting to learn the Predictive Index®, I thought it was very important to build and create a positive working environment. What I learned after conducting a 10 to 15 minute session is that everyone really appreciates being understood. Everyone felt their assessment was very accurate! Each meeting started with apprehension, but ended with appreciation in what you see as their positive behavior descriptors, and what you see that motivates them.
By simply executing the general guidelines of describing their positive behaviors made for a positive working relationship experience. Many of them also indicated how it also described their relations with friends and family outside of work. Each meeting ended with more smiles and questions than I anticipated!
I believe the PI® training is a valuable tool in building effective teams, lowering turnover by putting the right people in the right positions. Also, having an individual being understood helps motivate, creates a better working environment, which in turn increases productivity!”
