may perform in a given job by comparing that individual's profile
to a normative pattern which can be developed for a specific job
at a specific organization. Along with interviewing, checking references,
and administering other applicable tests, the PES helps ensure good,
solid hiring decisions.

As a coaching tool, the PES helps a group leader communicate more
skillfully with group members and develop them more effectively.

individual will generally take no longer than 18 minutes to respond
to each of 60 words representative of personality and talent traits
as they apply to the work environment. The Personality Profile is
designed to eliminate some of the mystery of the applicant and determine
where they might best fit into an organization.
The Partner Profile is an excellent
tool for matching an individual with an organizational leader or
determining if two or more individuals would be compatible in a
The Partner Profile uses the same 60-word questionnaire and scoring
system included in the Personality Profile and Team Design reports.
A Partner Profile can also be used in departments where a problem
exists. By evaluating the manager to see if personality and character

Team Design helps place the best team members in each team
position. The members are evaluated as a result of their profile
score. Twelve set categories or positions, ranging from clerical
to leader, correspond to the most frequently encountered positions
within a workplace team.
Each prospective team member responds to the same 60 questions that
are included in the Personality Profile and Partner Profile Reports.
The answers are scored based on the position for which the individual
is a candidate and compared to the position profile. Selecting all
the positions will indicate the positions for which each candidate
is most suited.
With the team scoring, a separate report is produced for each applicant,
including a Management Summary which characterizes the candidate

salespeople. It produces a comprehensive report outlining the individual's
knowledge and skills relating to the selling process.
Both knowledge and skill scores are provided in the Sales Aptitude

with the knowledge and ability to sell at the beginning of their
employment. The report also includes a review of the applicant's
compensation and other relevant facts important in understanding
the applicant with regard to aggressiveness, experience, and position.
Questions and answers can be exported to the Custom
Aptitude Tests so that an assessment can be tailored to an
employer's business. Employers can build Custom Aptitude Tests,
using a format similar to that of Sales Aptitude. Questions and
multiple choice answers are created to relate to a particular situation,
industry, profession, vocation, or skill. Up to 60 questions are
allowed, with as many as four multiple choice answers for each question.
The higher the score, the more an applicant knows about the subject
or the employer's business. A Summary Sheet allows the applicant's
score to be compared to the scoring/ranking system of the employer.
This allows the employer to compare this individual with other tested
applicants. A full report shows areas where the individual may need
