Employee Development Planning
Our planning services are available to help you create and implement a professional development "package" of programs. For instance, some areas of the University collaborate with WLP to create and implement annual professional development plans. This ensures a greater impact at a lower cost while allowing you to capitalize on the full range of programs and expertise offered.
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®)
The MBTI® tests strengthen working relationships based on individual differences. These services focus on individual and/or group behaviors that impact the achievement of goals in the workplace. MBTI® services can enhance interactions among colleagues, supervisory relationships, as well as customers and clients.
This confidential online assessment offers anonymous feedback about your performance strengths and development needs as seen by you, the person to whom you report, your peers, and your direct reports [if applicable]. Different versions of the 360-Degree Performance Profile are available for individuals without supervisory and management responsibilities. After we administer the online questionnaire, we will summarize the results for you in an individual feedback report. Rather than using the 360 as a tool for evaluation as an end in itself, the process will enable you to focus your development efforts and time on aspects of performance that are critical for your effectiveness, success, and achievement of your career goals.
We offer customer service assessments, which can be used as a benchmarking tool in measuring, monitoring, and improving customer satisfaction.
