Pro Active Values

Pro Active Values

Discovering WHY people work - the drives, the motivators, the rushes - is an essential element in creating winning teams and highly effective one-on-one relationships in the workplace. According to recent studies, companies that obtain a values 'pulse' on the organisation foster a climate of productivity.

The operative dynamic for successful teams is values. When values are understood, appreciated and respected, there is a substantial reduction of on-the-job conflicts between people and among team members. In addition, winning teams demonstrate two or three values that are common to team members. In this type of environment, a genuine values driven culture emerges.

What is Pro-ActiveValues™?

Pro-ActiveValues is an online questionnaire used to discover the intensity of six values, guiding principles and motivation factors active in the work environment: Theoretical, Economic, Individualistic, Altruistic, Political, and Regulatory.

What solutions does Pro-ActiveValues provide?

This instrument can be used in the following training contexts:

  • Team building
  • Building a values-driven culture
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Developing values-driven Mission, Vision and Values statements
  • Values-driven Strategic Planning
  • Meeting Motivation

ProactiveValues can also provide valuable insights when selecting candidates for job placement.

Situational Examples

Situation

"A personality conflict with my manager."

Outcome

The manager had a lower Theoretical value and preferred the bottom line. The employee had a higher Theoretical score and misread the manager's need for the 'bottom-line' as disinterest. It wasn't. When both understood the other's values, they realized that they needed each other's strengths.

Situation

 "An ineffective team with too many personality conflicts."

Outcome

The team's ineffectiveness was rooted in the fact that there were a variety of different values espoused. This was OK, once they each agreed in part on the values that were important to the functioning of their team.

Situation

 "I don't use personality testing because I have three very different people who are all doing very well on the job."

Outcome

The success of the three different styles of people on similar jobs was in part due to the fact that they believed the same things. They sharde similar values across three of the six values areas, and agreed that those are key areas for job success. This insight allowed this manager to be prepared when recruiting new team members.

Situation

 "Only 30% of companies I've talked to are happy with their pre-hire testing."

Outcome

That may be in large part because one's behavioral style or type accounts for only about 30% of one's success on the job. A much larger portion of the success-factor is measured by one's values drives. Proactive values enabled this organisation to create a more comprehensive pre-hire testing that allowed for Values.

Unique Profiling

Pro Active Values is the only report in the marketplace that reveals training, professional development and learning insights about the subject. This helps training departments create training programs that will be effective for learners
