Customizing Personality Assessment to Predict Job Success and Leadership Potential

Customizing Personality Assessment to Predict Job Success and Leadership Potential
March 8, 2012 at 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET
Talent acquisition professionals understand that the goal of the hiring process is to find candidates who best align with the unique demands and requirements of a specific job. Other selection tools and strategies like work simulations, employment interviews and entire assessment centers are designed based on a job’s requirements to predict success. Why then, has personality assessment not been used in the same way?

Most personality assessments provide information about a person – but not relative to specific job requirements. Sure, you might be assertive and outgoing, but what if it’s more important for a specific job that your strengths be dependability and responsibility? What then?

During this session we’ll talk about the process of analyzing jobs to discover their underlying personality requirements, and how to use personality assessment in a customized way for each occupation to ensure success. Additionally, we’ll discuss how specific information regarding personality can be used to forecast managerial performance and leadership potential.

Finally, we’ll talk about how technology can be leveraged to preemptively profile candidates against several occupations at once to identify those with which they align the best.

This webcast is being presented by Anthony Adorno, Chief Operations Officer at DeGarmo Group, an organization he co-founded in 1996.

Since that time, he has presented research and served as an invited speaker at both regional and national conferences, and has co-authored more than 75 publications, presentations, and technical reports. He has consulted with clients on projects such as turnover reduction, managerial assessment, selection system design and training design and implementation.

He is a reviewer for the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP), and recently served as a member of SIOP’s Strategic Planning Committee.

Who Should Participate
  • Recruiters, Managers, Directors, VPs, etc., responsible for HR, Staffing, and Talent Acquisition.
  • Those interested in learning about strategies for customizing personality assessment for any occupation.
  • Anyone interested in leveraging personality assessment to predict leadership and managerial potential in employees.
