In his book, The Way to Wealth, Brian Tracy lists ten sales skills that are key to success and results. By knowing what these skills are you can assess your own abilities and see where you need work.
I thought I should take this blog to give you a sense of what it’s all about.
“The Assessment Center is there to assist clients in improving their communications – to improve their relationships with associates and clients, to improve their ability to close sales, to increase their productivity and their staff’s productivity – communication has a huge impact on the success of a business.” explains Margaret Maclay, the center’s coordinator.
Margaret is a certified professional behaviour analyst as well as a Brian Tracy Certified Business Coach for FocalPoint.
“By understanding behaviour styles, a person can learn to adapt their style of communication so the person that they’re speaking with understands what they’re trying to say,” Margaret explains.
So why did FocalPoint decide there was a need for their own Assessment Center?
Margaret explains how it works:
“A coach will order an assessment or a set of assessments, which the clients take online – and, from there, a report is generated.
“With the information from the report we do a debriefing and develop an action plan. “That action plan can then be incorporated into the coaching engagement.
“The assessments help identify behaviour styles – they aren’t personality tests, nor are they an indicator of performance but they are tools to help people understand how they behave around other people and how other peoples behaviour can be worked with.
“Another thing we do with the assessment tools is look at a team and how they operate and some of their strengths and weaknesses – and we can identify where there are gaps.
“The suite of Behavioural Style Assessment tools that we incorporate will assess individual and team behavioural styles, skills and key motivators.”
As Margaret mentioned, the center will employ a suite of Behavioural Style Assessment tools. The tools are used to work with clients and we also teach our clients how to employ them within their organizations. The suite helps develop an understanding of communication styles and behaviours.
Some of the assessments that are used at the FocalPoint Assessment Centre are:
