The Predictive Index: Decoding the Human

I came from an organization that used “Strengths Finders” to create a strengths-based culture. I like the idea of strengths and I felt connected to my own:

  1. Positivity
  2. Strategic
  3. Empathy

But I struggled with how to use that information to engage employees, build teams, and leverage strengths to obtain higher results. So when I heard about The Predictive Index’s Behavioral Assessment™, I was immediately intrigued. Additionally, I was surprised by the fact it only took me six minutes to complete the assessment.

I was amazed by how accurate the results were. I was even more floored when my colleagues discussed their results with me as well. I felt like we were able to move several steps forward in our relationship in minutes. The vulnerability the assessment inspires is tangible and effective.

As it turned out, that was just a taste of what The Predictive Index could do. While the Behavioral Assessment is a fantastic coaching and professional development tool, it can also be used with PI’s Job Assessment to ensure that organizations hire individuals that are a natural fit for the role they need to fill. And with the Cognitive Assessment, a tool that measures how quickly someone learns, PI makes it much more likely that people will be successful (and stay longer!) in their new roles.

I have never before seen a tool that addresses every stage of the employee lifecycle from hire to retire. I am both thrilled and proud that Cascade has been selected as a PI Certified Partner because I believe it has the potential to revolutionize the way we help members achieve excellence in the workplace.

I have no doubt that it will become the golden thread that links together all our services here at Cascade and I’m excited to share it with anyone who will listen – even with skeptics like me.
