Championing Business: Psychometrics – a boon or a bane?

Psychometric profiling is much misunderstood and there are those who are in trepidation, in case doctors in white coats are going to come and take them away when their profile has been completed. In fact, psychometrics are incredibly useful in a number of ways; they can reduce the gamble in a complex recruitment process, build complementarity in a team and help to bring self-awareness higher up the priority list, within a coaching or other working environment.

They can also be used to ensure that the different strengths we bring to the table can be complementary rather than confrontational.

Good use of psychometrics can make a team or an organisation work even more effectively so that a combination of traits is grouped together and collectively makes the sum of the component parts even greater and helps the team to head in the same direction.

The talk will focus on what traits are important in the workplace and how these can be used for complementarity rather than conflict, so that all areas of the problem-solving cycle are covered and strengths used to the full.

The presentation will focus on the use of psychometrics both individually and in team building. We are not always at the mercy of our personalities and can make changes to bring about greater productivity and harmony.

About our speaker Claire Vane

Claire has spent the whole of her career and, she says, even her childhood, watching human behaviour, growing up in a Vicarage in industrial Manchester. She is passionate about why some organisations are blocked and individuals fail to reach their potential. The thread that binds her work is different mechanisms for releasing potential through interventions in the employee lifecycle from recruitment marketing and branding through search and selection, process re-engineering, HR operations, performance management, reward, strategy execution and HR transformation through organisational design and coaching.

She has spent the last 20 years developing and delivering the Consultancy and outsourcing offerings of Integrated Resources. Prior to this she was an HR director operating globally and in Europe, ensuring that her organisation was able to develop its growth and potential.

Her business has worked in a huge variety of sectors and her experience in blue-chip organisations has enabled her to apply best practice and growth to clients. She’s particularly interested in the interventions in the spectrum that bring about behavioural change so that individuals improve their performance and achieve a high level of satisfaction.

She particularly enjoys 1:1 coaching to make a difference to the individual and Claire has been coaching senior executives for many years.

Claire read Classics and Modern Languages at Cambridge and is an NLP Master Practitioner. She’s accredited to use a number of psychometric profiling tools and her other great passion is the piano, which she uses to raise money for her favourite charities.
