Trait Assessor Exploration Guide

Facilitate powerful one-to-one development discussions

This fully structured guide allows the assessor to understand a respondent’s Trait profile in depth, in order to create a highly targeted development plan.

The report provides detailed direction that will facilitate powerful one-to-one development discussions with respondents, and describes the implications of each personality trait and its scoring.

Used to support the main development report in the Trait Online series, this guide will provide deeper insight into the results of the tests for greater personalisation of interviews, training or coaching.
