Whether you are exploring career options for the first time, considering a career change, or transitioning into a new career, the most useful thing you can have is information about yourself. The assessments offered by SLS Global Assess will help arm you with information to make informed decisions about your career.
Your career and work-life satisfaction are impacted by the decisions you make. We offer a range of assessments to help you understand your personality, values, interests, and skills ... and how these personal elements come into play in a work setting.
Understanding your personality will help you identify:
where you get your energy - from within yourself or from outside yourself;
how you gather information about your environment and the world around you - in a literal, sequential way or in a more figurative, random way;
the way you prefer to make decisions - objectively and impersonally or subjectively and interpersonally; and,
how you conduct your day-to-day lifestyle - decisive and planned or flexible and spontaneous.
"Although individuals of any type can perform any role in an organization, each type tends to gravitate toward particular work, learning, and communication styles. You function best when you can adopt a style that allows you to express your [personality style] preferences. When you are forced to use a style over a long period that does not reflect your preferences, inefficiency and burnout may result. Even though you can adopt a different style when needed, you will contribute most when you are using your preferences and drawing on your strengths." (excerpt from MBTI Interpretive Report for Organizations)
"Having a clear sense of your values is critical to your career development and will help you make satisfying choices. Values contribute significantly to a sense of fulfillment or meaning in life. Alternatively, when values are thwarted, people often report feeling that they are 'living life on a treadmill' or that they are 'burned out.' Do you feel either of these ways now? Your results from the Work/Life Values Checklist should help you sort out what is important in both your work and your life. You can use these results to find out why a current job is not satisfying-- why you may feel burned out--or to help you evaluate different career and life choices. You are most likely to find satisfaction from work and life roles that match your values." (excerpt from Work/Life Values Checklist)
