Do you ever reminisce about those old-school Saturday mornings, taking quirky online quizzes while dodging pop-up ads? Well, guess what? We’re bringing that fun into the workplace but making it all about boosting productivity and understanding! This week we’re talking about some of my favorite personal assessment tools that I think all Young Bosses should take and implement within their businesses. Check it out!
First up is my favorite, the Predictive Index – your hiring crystal ball
Imagine a tool that peels back the layers of a candidate beyond their practiced and polished interview skills. That’s the Predictive Index! It has been a game-changer for us during hiring, helping us spot whether that outgoing candidate is truly a fit for that extroverted PR role, or not. We’re going to dive deep into real-life scenarios where the Predictive Index reshaped entire teams!
Next up is Fear Factor: Workplace Edition.
Nope, we’re not talking spiders or heights – we’re getting real about work fears: from handling conflict to public speaking. Discover how understanding these fears can position your team members (and yourself) right where they need to be.
The million dollar question: are you a morning lark or a night owl?
Our next assessment is all about syncing sleep patterns with peak productivity. Hear insights from top leaders (like Facebook’s Sheryl Sandburg) and uncover how adjusting to natural rhythms can revolutionize your workday efficiency. This is something that I know we could all use.
Lastly, you cannot build culture without workplace appreciation: speaking everyone’s language.
You’ve likely heard of love languages, yeah? Well, we’re translating them into the workplace. From acts of service to words of affirmation, find out how these appreciation languages can cultivate a harmonious, understanding, and thriving work environment.
We’ll spend the episode tying all these tools together to show you how they can transform your workplace dynamics. From making hiring a breeze to fostering an environment where every team member feels valued and understood, these tools are your secret weapon.
Check out this week’s episode anywhere you listen to podcasts or watch on YouTube. Remember, youth is your power.
