Trait Development Report

Improve work effectiveness and self-understanding

Used to assess performance and determine development needs, the Trait Development report is a quick, accurate and easy to use profiling tool that identifies the learning requirements for people at all levels within an organisation

Our reports help people improve their work effectiveness and self-understanding by highlighting development and training insights. They also help new leaders develop their management capabilities to improve business areas more positively for greater impact.

This report provides deep insights into performance, revealing areas for improvement. By assessing motivations, optimism, dependability, social and emotional styles, this powerful tool identifies which areas require a development plan.

The test takes just a few minutes to complete before producing an easy-to-read report, which serves as a guide on how to change behaviour and improve performance.

Scientifically proven and validated

Trait Online and its many reports is the result of extensive research and development led by Professor Stephen A. Woods, leading authority on personality, and a renowned team of work psychologists at Aston Business Assessments.

As a result of extensive evaluations on people in the workplace of many professionals across industry, our research has demonstrated that Trait is reliably accurate in predicting performance and effectiveness.

In our scientific studies and real-world use of the tool, we have shown the value that Trait can bring to those supporting development, appraising and training. Case studies, testimonials and statistics can be provided on request.
