“When you have that window of opportunity called a crisis, move as quickly as you can, get as much done as you can. There’s a momentum for change that’s very compelling.” – Anne M. Mulcahy
In order to move, shift and change, we first need to establish WHAT needs to change. We therefore start an intervention by doing a thorough assessment. As a company we do have preferred test measures but as qualified psychologists we are able to utilise most assessment criteria including all assessments recognised by the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA). A brief overview of some of our preferred assessments are listed below:
• Cognitive Process Profile Assessment (CPP)
• Differential Aptitude Test (DAT)
• Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS)
• Jung Type Indicator (JTI)
• Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire (16PF)
• Fifteen Factor Questionnaire (2nd Ed) (15FQ+)
• Meyers Brigs Type Indicator (MBTI)
• Occupational Personality Questionnaire (OPQ)
• Work Assessment Vocational Education (WAVE)
• Genos Emotional Intelligence Inventory
• Emotional Skills Assessment Process (ESAP)
• Neethling Brain Instrument (NBI)
• Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument (HBDI)
2. Identify need
We provide feedback based on the assessment results and in conjunction with the requirements of the client, we identify the need of the individual, team, company or organisation.
Keeping the identified need/s as our central objective, we design the appropriate intervention that will have to be implemented in order to achieve the desired outcome.
The implementation phase is where the design/strategy is set into motion. This may include individual feedback and/or therapy, group feedback and/or therapy, skills development and workshops.
In order to establish whether we have achieved the desired outcome, we have to monitor the process over a prolonged period of time. This is done not only to see that the outcome was met, but also that it is sustained.
Evaluation is done through individual/group/company/organisational feedback as well as measurements of performance. Assessments can also be repeated after a minimum period of 6 months in order to assess the impact of the intervention.
