Old Saybrook, CT (PRWEB) January 28, 2006
Personality assessment is rapidly becoming a “best practice” for companies interested in selecting and developing high-caliber employees. Given the expense of hiring and training people, companies seek to predict which job candidates will strive for success, work well with others, build good customer relationships, follow through on assignments, offer innovative ideas, and are motivated to learn. In response, Performance Programs Inc. will offer three professional certification seminars on the leading personality instruments for the workplace, the Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) and two related assessments. Seminars are scheduled on March 30, July 6, and September 8, 2006, in Old Saybrook, CT.
The Hogan Personality Inventory offers a business-based assessment of personality, unlike most personality tests, and is designed specifically to predict occupational success. The certification seminar is geared to help Human Resource practitioners and consultants administer, interpret and provide coaching to individuals based on HPI results. They will also learn how to use two other validated personality instruments by Hogan Assessment Systems, the Hogan Development Survey, and the Motivation, Values, and Preferences Inventory.
Participants will learn about the optimal uses of all three validated instruments, their history and development, and the specialized reports for job candidate selection and executive coaching that are available. Each participant receives hands-on experience interpreting his or her own report. Industrial/organizational psychologist Dr. Paul M. Connolly will present the material. Connolly is president of Performance Programs and has worked in the field of workplace assessment for more than twenty years. Cost for the one-day seminar is $995, and includes testing for the participant, technical manual, a seminar manual, samples, a CD with all materials, and follow-up coaching by telephone.
