An Overview of Your Personal Characteristics & Career Strengths

Business Development

You would be described as extremely competitive, enterprising, assertive, determined and goal oriented. You may display new and creative ways to reach your personal and work objectives and you will be self-evaluative and sometimes critical of your own performance. Given a goal, objective or requirement, you would be able to develop your own plan, manage your time and focus your effort on a daily basis to reach your goals. Being a self-manager should come very naturally to you and these skills should be refined through formal training and/or work experience.

Achievement Potential

People would see you as being motivated to a very great extent by your sincere concern for the well-being of others. In addition, they may see you as a person who has the potential to achieve some very meaningful objectives that have the creation of a good level of personal income as a major factor. To achieve at the level of which you are capable and to obtain both personal and financial satisfaction, you should set your career goals towards obtaining an opportunity whose purpose has real human and/or social merit and where you can occasionally take on challenging special tasks which are very demanding and which will reward you for their successful completion.

Independence Potential

You would be described as cooperative, obliging, efficient, conscientious, painstaking and team oriented. You would follow established procedures and work comfortably within a secure work environment. As a highly valued team captain, you will tend to develop strong ties with your associates and/or your employees.

People Orientation

You would be described as extremely sociable, entertaining, cheerful, genial and outgoing. In addition to being a fluent talker, you would be comfortable with new people, value social interaction and make new friends easily. Generally, you would display the ability to communicate with a wide variety of people in a number of different functions. Being extremely sociable could make you somewhat sensitive to rejection.

Technical Orientation

You would be described as somewhat logical, reflective, analytical, factual and practical. Intellectual challenges that also offered an obvious practical utility, would appeal to you. Ideally, the creative application of knowledge would provide challenge and opportunity. Ideas and concepts which were of solid practical use would be of interest to you.

Planning Considerations

What Types of Opportunities Should You Look For?

+ Look for opportunities to create your own work structure and to develop your self-management skills by training in time management and activity planning. The opportunity to put solid effort each day is a real plus for you as you know that effort invested consistently will produce the results you seek in both productivity and recognition.

+ Your best prospects for both personal satisfaction and personal productivity can be found in challenging opportunities in which you can see a real value in terms of rendering a valuable and valued service to people.

+ You should look for an opportunity to be a part of a team and provide a very important service to associates and to clients.

+ Look for opportunities that provides you with lots of people contact on a daily basis. A situation with a great deal of person to person interaction and public relations opportunities would be ideal for you.

+ Look for a situation that requires a practical implementation of any new technical information. You tend to enjoy challenges associated with the practical aspects of learning and will always acquire additional knowledge and technical information if you feel it is important to your performance.

What Types of Opportunities Should You Avoid?

- Avoid tightly and rigidly structured work situations. If there is no room to put your personal touch to work in organizing and managing yourself, the situation may become too constricting for you. Try to avoid situations that may limit your self-management skills development which is a very strong need in you for your personal productivity and your sense of satisfaction.

- Avoid situations which you evaluate as having little service orientation. If the opportunity tends to reward everyone the same regardless of their effort and results you are unlikely to find any 'productivity' satisfaction with them.

- Avoid work situations where you might be deprived of the opportunity for being an important member of a dedicated team.

- You should avoid situations that would isolate you from people. An opportunity that lacks social interaction would not be adequately stimulating and rewarding to you.

- Avoid situations that are exclusively detail oriented. Opportunities that require you to quickly learn and apply new technologies or vast amounts of new information must have a practical application to be satisfying for you.

Given formal training you should be able to develop good work habits that focus on business development.

Achievement Potential (AP)

This result on the AP Scale indicates that you have a very balanced motivational structure that includes challenge and/or money as well as an equally strong service and/or recognition component. You would enjoy an opportunity that focused on building good client relationships and was complemented by an opportunity for achievement. The blend of these two motivators indicates a comfort with servicing the needs of clients and selling a product or service that has some personal significance or meaning. As a business professional, you will be very aware of the needs of your clients and attempt to integrate your own requirements to create a 'win-win' outcome.

Developmental Suggestions

You have the energy to succeed and will profit from coaching in techniques for identifying client needs and sustaining client relationships. You will value positive client feedback that should be systematically requested from established as well as new clients. You will monitor your effectiveness based on recognition and quality service. Therefore, it is recommended that you seek out an opportunity that provides positive feedback through the self-management of both results and activities. Training in personal planning would help you feel 'successful' everyday. As a persuasive/persistent client relationship builder, you will learn best from a coach or mentor who has a style or approach that is well matched to your own personality.

Independence Potential (IP)

Your score on the IP scale indicates that you would be most comfortable in an environment that had relatively well established structure and systems. You would be quite accepting of good coaching and look to the coach to help you develop an effective and systematic approach in the early stages of your development. You would value a strong supportive environment that reinforced individual objectives. After the initial training, you should be virtually 'maintenance free' once you have established a good effort habit pattern.

Developmental Suggestions

You will initially look for direction and guidance and then would seek out independence through demonstrated performance. Cultivate your independence through the development of self-management skills including both self-evaluation and self-reinforcement strategies. If you are required to function as part of a team or with a senior associate, mentoring would be best with someone of a similar orientation.

Would Benefit From a MentorNeeds CoachingNeeds Training & Support


One of the main reasons that people fail is the fear of rejection. Fortunately, learning how to manage rejection is a trainable skill. Most sales in a business often require a number of rejections before a sale happens. Since your score indicates that you probably do not fear these rejections, it would be important to continually improve your response in situations where rejection occurs. Work with a mentor to find different methods to turn objections into opportunities.

Approach Reluctance: Managing Rejection

Build SkillsNeeds TrainingVery Sensitive


Your score on the managing rejection scale indicates that you would respond primarily to internal cues and to a degree on how the client was responding during the client building process. You would be aware of a client's feelings but you do not appear to have an overly strong need to be liked or a fear of not being liked. Therefore, you are unlikely to confuse a client's feelings about the product with feelings toward you personally.

Questions to Consider

  • In social situations, do others tend to approach you or do you usually initiate contact? Why?
  • What do you do to help new acquaintances get to know you? How would this relate to meeting a new prospective customer in your business?

You would tend to favour approaching clients in your natural market. To network effectively from a business perspective you would require a strong commitment to product and a well developed approach. The ideal opportunity would involve networking with people in a comfortable market. The implementation plan for the introduction to new markets would create a need for training support.

Questions to Consider

  • What products or services would you feel uncomfortable selling? Why?
  • Do you have friends that approach you at social gatherings to buy products or services they are selling? What is your usual response?

Approach Reluctance: Commitment to Product/Service

Less NecessaryDesirableEssential


You would probably develop a commitment to the product by approaching potential clients in your natural market and determining the type of feedback you are receiving. If the feedback proved neutral or negative, you would require coaching to help understand the benefits of the product or service. Approaches for generating feedback and integrating the feedback into your value system would help you achieve high levels of performance.

Questions to Consider

  • Do you currently own or use the types of products and services that you are selling?
  • What factors influenced your buying decision?

  • How would you describe the ideal entrepreneur?

Uncertainty Scale

Scoring up to 45 indicates a consistent pattern of answering that makes the profile results dependable. The lower the score, the more consistent your answers and the more dependable the entire profile results. As you approach and pass 45, you have enough inconsistencies in your answers that may make the overall profile results less dependable.


USUNCERTAINTY SCALE

If your score is over 45, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Does the profile describe you accurately?
  • If not, what changes would you make in this report?
  • In what situations or environments would you have a tendency to change your normal behaviour?
