Culture Management – Personality Profile – Persona Mapping
This model enables us to measure positive and negative traits which are then presented as a ‘personality profile’ in the form of a radial chart for further analysis. The process can be repeated over a period of time and the results recorded so that variations can be seen/acknowledged. A separate analysis is also provided in the form of Strengths and Issues, whereby the top 8 of each is provided.
The model itself is very easy to use and enables the user/team using this model to have complete (direct) control over the relative position of 36 individual slider entries, which in turn is representative of a considered position. Subsequent measures of the subject then become a ‘delta’ on the original measure which is highlighted accordingly. If you have ever wanted to profile the ‘personality’ of a team this is the model to do just that. Up to 6 individual members of a team can be added with the result presented as a team profile. So when you have a team that performs well, it can be ‘measured’ and then used as a mask and or measures within strategic KPI’s
Personality is the essential individual character of a person. Personality is who and what we are without the labels of name, number and status that give us a social identity. We are all born with a distinctive unique personality that is gradually overlaid as we get older with what are called personality traits.
There are more than 4,000 traits that characterise the attitudes and behaviours from which the personality of every human being is drawn.
Traits include such terms as reserved, impatient, warm, friendly, easy-going, insensitive, suspicious and compulsive.
Personality traits are the psychological mechanisms by which we respond to the world around us. Some are defensive and some competitive. Some are inborn and some acquired.
We are born with natural personality just as we are born with natural talent and creativity. But we acquire personality traits as a result of our circumstances at birth and subsequent life experiences, many of which reduce our psychological growth and competitive performance. It is also true that we can make a conscious effort to develop and improve those traits that will be of most help to us in work and in our relationships.
Every living creature is born with natural defensive and competitive characteristics that enable it to survive and grow. Human beings are especially gifted in that we have three natural characteristics that have given us a competitive advantage over all other species. These are what we might call the three potentials for growth. They are:-
