Our favoured Psychometric instrument is the Test of Attentional & Interpersonal Style (TAIS).
The TAIS is the only psychological test that predicts behaviour under pressure and is used around the world in a variety of settings. It is used extensively as a screening tool in a recruitment and selection process or as an Assessment Centre; in a sports context; in coaching high performance Olympic athlete or teams such as Australia II in the America's Cup or the Cronulla Sharks (NRL) or North Melbourne Kangaroos (AFL).
It has long been recognised that what determines the success (or otherwise) of an individual after they have developed the necessary skills and knowledge is their ability to concentrate in a focused and sustained fashion.
The TAIS measures the specific concentration and the interpersonal skills required for effective and/or superior performance and decision making in a busy and competitive environment.
The TAIS measures an individual's respect for an organisation's Rules, Policies and Protocols which is a major requirement regards Workplace Health and Safety.
The TAIS predicts the behaviour and contribution (or the lack there of) of an individual in a team situation.
The TAIS measures an individual's propensity to make mistakes and choke under pressure.
The TAIS measures distractibility and the lack of focus of an individual in a busy environment.
The TAIS measures the strength of an individual's Leadership Profile.
The TAIS can predict energy and busyness in the execution of duties.
The TAIS can identify shy and retiring types who have the propensity to avoid human contact.
The TAIS can predict boredom and anxiety as well as situation depression and anti-social behaviour.
We use TAIS in team building exercises, as a screening tool in recruitment and selection, in individual coaching and mentoring exercises and in behaviour based intervention.
