Company Profiling

Before embarking on a new project or enhancing an existing one, it is highly advisable to have an IS consultant “analyse” your business. This would take a set of simple but thorough steps, that involve engaging your business, meeting key representatives, asking the right questions and fully interpreting the dynamics, culture, strategy and operations of your business. It is the most realistic

snapshot in a fast-tracked manner, in grasping the inner layers on your business that ensures a true picture is understood and more importantly, any assessment process that follows is as close to an accurate version of your business. Vision and mission statements, organograms and newsletters, although useful representations of a business, often fail to truly enlighten an Industrial Psychologist/Consultant. The aim is to establish deficits in the business and offer clear recommendations where performance can be improved.

Job Profiling

An organisation can be described as a collection of job roles that simultaneously meet an overall purpose. Each position created must be justified in its existence and more importantly should connect with a set of other roles to ensure synergy. If this happens, you have a simple organisation and can develop a “starter” hierarchy. To profile a position effectively requires a lateral approach

in comprehending the organisation within which it resides. To merely type out objectives and generic KPA’s and KPI’s can become an academic exercise. Rather entrust the development of a job profile with an external experienced mind, combined with internal representatives that are currently performing at a higher level. Setting the stage for what a job profile entails, should consider the DNA of your business, the key initiatives in progress, the potential pitfalls and the measurability of success within that role.

Competency Modelling

To meet targets in business is a means to an end. The ‘how’ in getting there, is when one starts to consider the behaviour required in achieving that end result. Imagine you have a team of sales oriented, driven individuals who meet their mark every time, but create chaos and destroy morale in doing so. Certainly, these behaviours or competencies could become accepted due to its financial benefit. However, adopting scrutiny in the desired

behaviours is the key to the longevity of your business, as it is these favoured behavioural patterns that determine the culture of your business. Every organisation must first define the critical and important behaviours they need and want, in order to ensure that collectively the ‘’right’’ success behaviours are being cultivated. At IS, we work with your decision makers, preferred specialists and leaders in facilitating a process of mapping competency modelling and behavior. This promotes the setting of a behavioural benchmark that projects, both current and futuristic competencies need for excellence.

Interview Techniques

Did you know that a competency-based interview (CBI) is a form of assessment? You ask behavioural based questions and you use a rating scale within a panel interview, which means an average can be attained. If it is approached diligently, according to the simple rules of the process, it can be used to shortlist candidates easily. At IS we use intelligent talent assessments that generate free CBI guides, to afford you the opportunity to probe areas

initially assessed. The actual questions are designed around the customised competencies you have decided upon and then these are automatically included in the interview guides for your convenience. Cohesive talent assessing and decision making makes the selection and placement process much easier. Opting to use an IS professional to both assess and interview with your panel, affords a degree of insight and symmetry to the process, whereby inconsistencies can be detected.

leadership assessment and evaluation process, enables quick insights, talent match fit scores and a highly flexible and integrated process that your HR professionals and managers, will love. At IS we steer away from paper/pencil assessments, favouring online psychometrics, due to the geographical ease of facilitation and “ready…steady…go” capture of data. With the use of algorithms and access to computed data, the topic of data mining and analytics becomes highly possible.

Performance Coaching

At IS, there is a view that between the talent processes of assessment and training, is the immeasurable but highly influential service of performance coaching. To evaluate personality, cognition and emotional maturity is the start. To avoid personalised coaching and expect individuals to leapfrog into shifted beings, at mass training initiatives is short-sighted. It is only when focused, individualised

coaching, which occurs over a period of time, will result in epiphanies and awakenings. Self–awareness is a journey and this requires facing the blind spots and embracing the tough inner dialogue through conversations that coaching brings. A 6 session (90 minutes each) coaching package is offered for your specialists, managers and executives using the most sought after Emotional Intelligence Test as well as other psychometrics that contributes towards a personal development plan.

Professional Consultations

Engaging in “blue sky” creative prototype discussions or “brown paper exercises’’ focused on operations is what professional consultations are all about. Picking the brain of a Psychologist trained in Industrial/Organisational Psychology may be exactly the kind of objectivity, science and intuition you need. It is always a tank of ideas and thought leadership that drives a healthy debate

or discussion around people, process or project matter. Indulge in the psychological mindset of combined theory and practice and grow or streamline your possibilities. Shameema, the CEO of Intuitive Science, favours consultant exposure to executive forums and board meetings, to develop a progressive understanding of inner dynamics. Invitations to high profile meetings where decisions are finalised could prove to be of immense value. Typically, a paid consultation is clear in its objective and time frame.

that can become a part of your very own business library. Task teams schooled in the area you require, will also ensure that your 1 or 2-day workshop is filled with experience and impact.

Corporate games and iLaboratories will also feature into the design model.

Feedback Sessions

To close the process before critical decisions are made, professional feedback on the outcomes of the assessment is absolutely key. To fully absorb the assessment’s enhancers and inhibitors for success in a role, IS uses trained psychology professionals to unpack these results.

In this way, you are able to derive the full value of the insights revealed and use this content to make sound talent decisions. In our experience, it could mean the identification of high potential to be fast-tracked, whereas prior to assessment, this behaviour was hidden as latent potential. In other cases, it may clearly indicate a role misfit where new career pathing discussions need to ensue. The complexities around talent can be skilfully navigated with the use of best of breed assessment technology. They act as levers into deeper realisations that self-adjust the profile of a business. For instance, a low performing team invested in minimally or disconnected from the business can be rock stars elsewhere. The same team of individuals, if placed in a different environment or project, could flourish. The subtle differences that assessments can direct you to can have a major impact on motivation and performance.

Proposal Development

On the basis of a specific organisational need, IS develops detailed proposals that become the intellectual property of your business. They will serve to guide the implementers on the way forward, in executing a project or intervention. A world-class proposal is a researched

document that should never be underestimated. It affords a project team clarity and direction. Should you choose to ‘buy’ the service of proposal creation, you are then at liberty to roll out that initiative using any consultants, not necessarily IS ambassadors, although of course the latter is what would be preferred. Consider the risk in a misinformed or misguided proposal. It is the starting point with any formidable intervention and requires due diligence, in order to yield a high performing end result.

Psychometric Tests

Psychometric Tests have been in existence for decades to assist employers in discerning between applicants when hiring or promoting. This type of testing is objective, standard, reliable and valid, measuring various skills, attributes and abilities. Psychometrics removes the bias.

At Intuitive Science, we promote the use of science first, followed by incorporating intuition and judgement into your talent decisions. You cannot afford to NOT use psychometrics, especially when it predicts job performance. Majority of psychometric tests adopt a gamification approach, making the experience more fun but without removing the metrics.

The minute you say the word, “game”, it may conjure images of popcorn, game night or friendships. If there is no competition and the game is geared towards development, there is no threat of losing either. This then becomes an opportunity that is embraced. Since no human is a corporate clone, it makes full sense that any opportunity that feels like a getaway from their job is welcome. On a subconscious level, it makes them feel as if they are scoring as they are having fun. However, the business is winning, as it is deriving the end result but choosing a far more pleasant methodology. People hate being reduced to a candidate that is reviewed, they want to be engaged with and celebrated. The inner child lives on and needs to be nurtured, in order for the adult to thrive.
