Your Values are Showing!

Posted on February 13, 2007. Filed under: Blog--All categories, Staff selection |

Special thanks to members of Soroptimist International of Truckee Meadows (SITM). This organization, whose mission is improving the lives of women and girls in local communities and around the world, gave me the opportunity to show them how their values influence their decision making and relationships–personally and at work.

“Your Values are Showing” is an assessment-based program that is esssential to understanding 1) why we make the decisions we do, 2) how those decisions influence our behavior, and 3) how to improve our relationships with others. The key to understanding others is understanding the values that drive their decision making.

Target Training International’s (TTI) research-driven assessment tools are the basis for this workshop. Over 40 years of research in values and behaviors has led TTI to creating industry-leading, validated assessment products designed to:

  • Understand what the job requires
  • Get the right person in the right job
  • Grow that person to their highest potential

Far too often, hiring decisions are made on personality and individual appeal rather than on the true requirements of the job. Job benchmarking–the key to understanding what the job requires–identifies the true requirements of the job without taking personality or preference into consideration.

One component of the job benchmarking process is helping managers and staff understand one another so that:

  • Conflicts are kept to a minimum
  • Lines of communication are kept open and active

Understanding values is key to this process. And members of SITM now have a greater understanding of the values that drive their own behavior and strategies for understanding those in their work environments.
