In pursuit of performance, one of the practices we have observed in organizations which has caused me great concern over the years is that often clients will try to use training or coaching as a cure-all. For some it is effective and for others it isn't. The reality is, when the person is the wrong fit for the job, all the  (Read more)

Step 1  The Job 

First, Assess/ Benchmark the Job!

Key Accountabilities Defined
The Excel TI™ System begins with a list of "key accountabilities" of each position being benchmarked. Key accountabilities (approximately 4-5) are the critical goals and key business successes the job is accountable for producing. Once defined, they serve as a reference point in the calibration of the  Excel TI™ Multiple Respondent Job  Report(SAMPLE).

The Excel TI™ Job Plus Report is a job benchmark that allows up to 8 stakeholders to give input on  the position. After the stakeholders have provided input through an online survey, it  then provides a template for specific talent selection. Based on a unique 37-factor analysis, the Excel TI™ Job Report lists the job's requirements into three separate talent categories: Rewards/Culture, Behavioral Traits and Job Attributes.

step 2 blue  The Talent

Second, Assess Personal Talent.

Interviewers agree that the interview process is highly subjective and  minimally effective at best. What is needed is an unbiased assessment that reveals the VALUES that motivate a person to a job, the BEHAVIORS they will bring to the job, and whether they have the specific Capacities - or ATTRIBUTES -needed for performance on the job.

Excel TI™ Personal Talent Report.

The Excel™ Talent Report (SAMPLE) provides a summary of a person's talent to match the identical areas outlined in the Excel TI™ Job Report. Within the framework of a company's overall selection and development processes, this report reveals the WHY (values), HOW (behaviours) and WHAT/Will (attributes) an individual can contribute to a job.
step 3 The Match

Now, Match the Talent to the Job!
