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…). Working with the various departments of an organization, you will find that you often need an individual’s uniqueness to achieve desired results. Inevitably, “personality clashes” will occur. If not understood and addressed, these clashes can get in the way of productivity and even lead to dissension, which can have a negative effect on departmental success.
