I’m a big believer in conducting personality profiles.
In fact, I would go so far as to say they are crucial in creating quality teams.
When you understand each member’s style of communication, evaluating, buying, working and socializing, it’s far easier to build respectful and cohesive teams.
A cohesive team is a productive team.
A productive team is a happy, profitable team.
Studies show that people are hired on their ability to perform in their role.
Makes sense, right?
But guess what? The main reason people are often released from their roles is because of their personality.
Same goes true for employees’ decisions. The number one reason people leave jobs is because of issues with their direct supervisor.
Does this mean that when we got along with others we’ll be more inspired to do great work?

What would happen if we all took responsibility for a happy, productive workplace?
Elbert Hubbard said, “It’s a fine thing to have ability, but the ability to discover ability in others is the true test.”
Let’s face it. We can’t do anything alone. We all need one another to succeed.
And there isn’t any process, machine, computer, or system that doesn’t require people to design and operate it.
We do need to be heavily invested in ourselves to deliver our best; but, being cognizant of our ability to fit in means we’re also invested in others.
“Either we’re pulling together, or we’re pulling apart. There’s really no in-between.” ~ B.J. Marshall
