0 Lessons 15 minutes completion time

What you'll learn:

Know Your Inspire Toolbox introduces you to the tools that leverage Behavioral Assessment results to help you improve relationships and develop better managers. You’ll receive and use the tools that let you more effectively work with both individuals and teams.

Understanding Self

Using Inspire starts when employees become more self-aware and work on their development. This includes an individual employee, as well as managers. Useful tools for this task include the Personal Development Chart and the Manager Development Chart. 

Personal Development Chart

You can access the Personal Development Chart through the Inspire section of the PI software.

Personal Development Chart Walkthrough

The Personal Development Chart displays where an employee lands on four behavioral drives:

  • Dominance (the need for control)
  • Extroversion (the need for social interaction) 
  • Patience (the need for stability) 
  • Formality (the need to conform)

The chart’s insights into employee behavior include both areas of strength and areas of caution. There are also self-coaching tips for balancing your most commonly occurring behavior.

Employees can use the chart to identify strategies to enhance self-awareness of strengths and development opportunities. Some examples include:

  1. Identifying career paths or roles that may best suit them
  2. Setting goals for the upcoming year or quarter 
  3. Reflecting on areas of relative strength or where they might improve their performance
  4. Considering projects, and what actions they can take to leverage their work style and behavior

Manager Development Chart Walkthrough

  • Extroversion (the need for social interaction) 
  • Patience (the need for stability) 
  • Formality (the need to conform)

This chart’s insights relate to a manager’s behavior and include both areas of Strength and areas of Caution. There are also self-coaching tips for balancing your most commonly occurring behavior.

Managers can use the chart to be more self-aware of their behavioral tendencies when managing, and identify steps they can take to improve how they manage people and teams. Some examples include:

  1. Planning projects and how best to lead other people
  2. Assessing their leadership style, if they are naturally assertive or more deliberate
  3. Understanding their common behaviors and tendencies, and how to manage with them 
  4. Developing new and better habits for communicating with employees
