Top Questions Asked:
What is the best new personality assessment? We developed the True Tilt Profile because most conventional personality or style assessments felt dated and irrelevant to the way people think today. Experts used to claim that personality doesn't change over time. They were also based on boomer statistics. The current workforce has been forever changed by advancements in technology and this clearly changes the brain. Today people are not one type, they are agile and can move among a variety of patterns of behavior based on what is appropriate to the situation or context. And they can do so rapidly. They have to or they won't survive. The True Tilt Profile is based on research stats from the current workforce and employs relevant language to that group of people. For this reason it is the best new personality tool available to help people understand themselves. Check out our scientific research to learn more.
What is the best strengths-based 360 feedback tool? We think most 360's are substandard and painful to use. Mainly because they are measuring the wrong thing - Competencies. Don't get us wrong, Competence is important. Yet current research indicates that competence can make leaders less open to learning and even encourage tunnel vision. The more you know, the less open you might be to new innovative ideas. This is why experts are often the last one to embrace a new innovation. We believe that Agilities are the new Competencies of today. The most important set of strengths a leader needs today is internal character strength which enables them to be externally agile. Character strengths also helps leaders focus because they are more apt to filter out the noise and focus on what's most important so they can execute rapidly. The other point we want to make is that most HR professionals reach for 360's when there are squabbles or conflict and they want a leader to be more self-aware. Well, competencies are not the problem in this case. The root cause is always going to be about personality extremes that are getting in the way of quality relationships. If that's the problem, then competency 360's are simply measuring the wrong thing. So we built a tool that measures a person's ability to generate quality relationships. And we built it on technology that allows learners to collect feedback a little at a time in a variety of contexts, so it isn't overwhelming and gives them a chance to grow in more manageable increments. It's also learner-driven so they can collect feedback when they are ready for it and can take action one step at a time. The Tilt365 Positive Influence Predictor is bar-none, the best 360 feedback tool on the market today.
How do companies typically use the True Tilt Professional Profile? This assessment is a self-assessment that can be used at any point in the people life-cycle in order to help raise self-awareness about one's natural set of personality traits and the best path to character development. It goes further than most personality assessments in that it includes the underlying and often unconscious motives under our trait tendencies to help us understand WHY we do what we do. Understanding the underlying motivations can help people begin to understand their path toward integration and balance their oversensitivity's for better relationship dynamics. Results are reported in a comprehensive report that is used as a reference document for life!
How do companies typically use the Tilt365 Positive Influence Predictor? This tool is a very different kind of multi-rater feedback web app used in people development. Its' purpose is to heighten awareness about how our behaviors are interpreted and experienced by others. Essentially, it measures how others perceive us in a variety of contexts over time. It goes further than other multi-rater feedback assessments in several ways. First, results are displayed on a visual framework that connects noble traits and character strength patterns to a leadership & influence model. As a result, it can help one to understand how to increase awareness about twelve character strengths that expand positive influence. Second, it enables individuals to control the process of their feedback experience, by being user-driven. This helps users to trust the process of feedback more, increasing the ability to experience it positively. Third, it gives you only 5 overused traits to improve at a time instead of ALL of the data input. This syncs up with the idea that people can only change one or two character habits at a time. Lastly, the web app allows re-takes and complete flexibility to the user in regard to how feedback is collected. They can collect feedback at various times and in a variety of contexts so they can see the trajectory of change over time. Results are debriefed by a Tilt 365 Certified Practitioner (coach or HR counselor) and can help the user form a plan for development of character strengths that increase positive influence.
How do companies typically use the True Tilt Team Profile? This assessment is used in conjunction with the True Tilt Profiles. It is a compilation of data is drawn from the individual True Tilt Profiles of the team's individual members. In essence, it's a visual expression of the natural tendencies of the team climate and can predict what they will do under stress, what strengths they may overuse and what blind spots are likely to be an obstacle to success. A great conversation starter, this tool can be facilitated to discuss the implications of the Team Climate and dynamics, along with potential developmental opportunities, best uses, mindsets etc. Companies use this tool in conjunction with a Tilt Certified Practitioner that facilitates a team workshop designed to reduce counterproductive energy loss and to optimize energy into productivity and innovation.
How do we get started in our organization and in what order should the tools be deployed?
Step 1: We recommend that you first start with a demo by internal HR decision-makers. Or you can contract an external certified practitioner to co-design and help you conduct your implementation. Start with the True Tilt Profiles because you can use them right away, with or without debriefs. This will help people start the journey to understand the underlying motives of their patterns and how development can shape better whole-person development. Start with your most influential teams and work from there.
Step 2: Once a team is complete on the individual assessments, now you are ready to pull the True Tilt Team Profile data and conduct team dialogues with a team facilitator. By increasing self and team dynamic awareness, you will begin to see results immediately. The language and premises of balanced character strengths can change the climate and begin to shift people from over-used traits and strengths to a more balanced and productive environment. Paired with the Tilt Habit Change Process, you can achieve real change rapidly.
Step 3: When the cultural environment is ready to handle more transparency and multi-rater feedback, you are ready to begin to employ the Tilt 365 Positive Influence Predictor. We recommend partnering with an external Tilt 365 Certified Practitioner to begin, but eventually you will want to also get your internal HR leaders to get certified too. We make this easy by providing a quick and virtual learning experience that can be completed from anywhere. When using the Tilt 365 PIP tool, it is important to adhere to a plan designed by someone who understands how people development tools are best deployed. Confidentiality and trust are key and should be protected by the internal HR process design. Eventually, over time, the culture can be educated about how to be more transparent and immediate with feedback, but if your climate is protective or competitive internally, confidentially is a must. We can help you design and implementation or you can contact us to find a local practitioner in your area.
Can we use the Tilt 365 Positive Influence Predictor as a part of our Performance Management Process?
No. The Tilt 365 Positive Influence Predictor is a tool for personal development, not a tool to measure on-the-job performance. Reports should be confidential between the person and his/her coach or mentor (although the person may choose to share what they have been learning and intentionally developing in any way they choose, up to and including sharing their actual report results with others as they wish). While the Tilt 365 PIP is a powerful tool for developing self awareness, it merely shows peoples’ perceptions of how another is currently showing up and not how competent, motivated or intelligent they are, nor how they are performing in their objectives.
Can we use the True Tilt Profile as a part of our Performance Management Process?
No. The True Tilt Profile provides insights about someone’s natural inclinations/preferences, not how they have performed or how they are currently showing up. This tool is used to help someone understand their natural inclinations from a combination of genetic and learned behavior preferences. While the True Tilt Profile is helpful to understand interpersonal dynamics in a work setting, it is not directly related to on-the-job performance and should not be used to in performance appraisals.
