Workshop Kickoff

5 Lessons 40 minutes completion time

What you'll learn:

The Workshop Kickoff guides you to understand and apply the PI Behavioral Assessment. You’ll discover how it works, how it’s administered, and the value of its accurate and compelling descriptions of workplace behavior. From this foundation, you’ll be ready to interact with your workshop instructors and classmates.

The four factors, factor combinations, and the full pattern.

When it comes to how we act at work, we all have traits. Traits are habits, thought patterns, and emotions. And a given trait produces a drive to have certain things. These drives create needs, and these needs motivate us to behave in a way that satisfies the associated need.

At PI, we’ve been conducting behavioral assessments for about 65 years. Since the very beginning, PI has quantified people’s behavioral drives in the workplace in four areas that give us an enormous amount of insight about how someone will behave at work. We call these the Four Factors.

Reading a PI profile is a lot like looking at constellations in the stars — you only know what you are looking at by seeing the whole picture. Let’s take a look…
