Certifications and Applicable Tools
At HR Advantage Group, we use Situational Leadership® for enhancing organizational leadership. Situational Leadership® is an easy to understand and applicable leadership model that stresses flexibility and simplicity in execution, can equip leaders in your organization with the tools necessary to skillfully navigate the demands of an increasingly diverse workforce and evolving global marketplace.
With application across organizational leaders, first-line managers, individual contributors and even teams, Situational Leadership® utilizes task specificity to serve as a mechanism through which leaders maximize their influence-related impact.
Developed by Dr. Paul Hersey in the late 1960s, the Situational Leadership® Model is based on the relationship between leaders and followers and serves as a framework to analyze each situation based on:
- The amount of guidance and direction (task behavior) a leader gives
- The amount of socioemotional support (relationship behavior) a leader provides
- The readiness level that followers exhibit in performing a specific task, function, or objective
Since then, the model has evolved to fit the pace of today’s business landscape.
Insights Discovery is an indispensable tool that recognizes an individual’s behavior to help improve communication, decision-making and performance. Insights Discovery® uses a simple and accessible four-color model to understand an individual’s unique working style preferences. The tool measures these preferences based on responses to a short online evaluator followed by a customized and facilitated debrief and application within your organization.
Every Discovery Personal Profile provides information on an individual’s strengths and weaknesses, communications style, and their value to a team. Each profile includes suggestions for development that can be put into practice the very next day. Additional chapters are available to support learning and development across a range of areas.
Insights Discovery has its roots in the work of Swiss psychologist Carl Jung. It is continually validated and refined by our research team to ensure it is always accurate and deeply insightful.
All too often, our natural talents go untapped. In fact, we devote more time to fixing our deficiencies than to developing our strengths, which lends us to a more successful career and fulfillment in the long run. To help people uncover their talents, Gallup introduced the first version of its online assessment, StrengthsFinder, in the 2001. Since then, StrengthsFinder has helped millions to discover their top five talents.
At HR Advantage Group, we are trained in using and coaching the StrengthsFinder assessment. StrengthsFinder is a great tool to use whether you are looking to find your purpose, transition careers, or to learn about the value you bring to your role, team and organization.
