Personality Profiling

You are an amiable person; you make friends easily and always stand by your friends when they get into trouble.

And as a true friend, you always tell it like it is, giving candid feedback, so that the people you care for may fix their weakness and improve their own chances of success. 

This is why you find the feedback you received during the last 360 degree feedback session so painful. 

You of all people were branded ‘uncaring, unsupportive and worst of all, a poor team worker’.

And as if to rub salt in an open wound, they rated that forked tongue John ‘the person they most enjoy working with!’

Now John has been ear-marked for a management development course ahead of you. 

Yet all that guy does is sugar coat his feedback.

Want to find out if this feedback bears a grain of truth?

@ Adept Systems we have the tools to help you understand yourself and the impact that you have on others better, and improve your rating at the next feedback session. 

Call us on 3744430 or 0723 028383.
