Using the ProfileXT® to Work Better Together

One of the most significant benefits

of the ProfileXT® is that a manager can know themselves and know each member of their department with a depth of information that only the ProfileXT® can provide. But knowing yourself and knowing your people is not enough; you need to use that information to maximize your working relationship with each member of your group, as individuals and as a cohesive unit. Compatibility among co-workers tends to make it easier for them to work together. But in the workplace, compatibility is not always achieved, and not always desirable. At the highest level in the company, different behaviors, talents, and disciplines are needed as they relate to functional roles (general management, sales, engineering, operations, etc…).

The ProfileXT® Team Report

evaluates 12 unique scales concerning the cognitive abilities and behavioral characteristics for each of your team members, ranking each scale in one of four areas of emphasis: Low, Moderate/ Low, Moderate/High, or High. These scales include:
