Using Tools As A Conversation Base

Sometimes I would recommend a tool as a base to the career conversation. It helps to understand why one makes certain decisions – is it an internal, or external push?

A long-term favourite tool is Emergenetics. The Emergenetics® Profile was developed to distinctly measure how people think and behave. This will create self-awareness and by working with the knowledge of how one thinks and behaves, the communication is improved. This also affects how one looks at his or her resume – some would throw in a kaleidoscope of colours into the resume, whereas there are others who would stick to narratives without thinking much at the aesthetic values of the document.

I have used Emergenetics for:

  1. creating team dynamics in existing or new team
  2. leadership coaching on how to provide feedback in a positive way
  3. managing effective meetings
  4. creating a mindful work environment by harnessing strengths
  5. positive career conversations
