Mining the Subconscious: A Scientific Approach to Talent Development

Mining the Subconscious: A Scientific Approach to Talent Development
February 23, 2012 at 2:00 - 3:00 PM ET
Mark Burden, CPBA, CPVA, CIA, Partner, Assessments/Talent Management(Peak Performance Systems)
Though we might like to think otherwise, most of our actions and reactions are done at the subconscious level. Our tone of voice, facial expressions, words, preferences, even the thought processes that govern our decisions and valuations are controlled, for the most part, by our subconscious mind. We live in the age of reason, yet it is still our non-conscious biases and preferences that dictate how we perform our daily functions and which either elevate us to success, or lower us to mediocrity.

While this happens in the background and without our conscious awareness, we can still tap into this subconscious wiring and use it to the advantage of both individuals and organizations alike.

Psychometric assessment instruments have been around for decades, but in recent years they have been refined to where they can provide valuable and useful information to assist companies in placing the right people in the right roles. People are complex. And even the most skilled interviewer can’t pull everything out of a handful of meetings.

In today’s highly competitive talent market it is the companies that leverage key information regarding the subconscious makeup of their people that tend to do the best at selecting and developing their talent. Only by digging deeper into the mind and makeup of a candidate can we identify the hidden genius in everyone. In this webinar we’ll examine the role of assessment tools in the selection and management of talent.

We’ll discuss,
•       How subconscious wiring affects job fit and performance,
•       what to look for in a psychometric assessment instrument,
•       why hiring for aptitude beats hiring for skill,
•       how much weight to put on psychometric assessments, and
•       the issue of job/role realignment in the overall talent management strategy.

Whether you are an HR professional, a hiring manager or a senior executive looking for a competitive edge in the race for the best talent, this webinar is for you.
Who Should Participate
HR Managers, Recruiters, Hiring Managers, Performance coaches, Executives, and anyone else concerned about job fit and job performance.
What You Will Learn
- Three key areas of subconscious wiring, - how those three key areas affect job performance, - how best to approach the measurement of subconscious performance factors, - how to evaluate the suitability of a psychometric instrument.
