I have found that researching both the Predictive Index Behavioral Assessment and the Predictive Index Cognitive Assessment prior to any coaching session gives me a roadmap of what I want to accomplish.

The Predictive Index Behavioral Assessment can help not only with your new hires, but it’s a tremendous training tool to use with your existing employees.

It can give you great insight into what your employee needs to have from you, as a supervisor, and what you can do to improve the working relationship and help them achieve their goals.

I love the Predictive Index Behavioral Assessment. I use it every time I look at making a hire. Overall – I think it’s the perfect tool for us.

I recently participated in a Predictive Group workshop for a new management position at La-Z-Boy. Having been responsible for hiring and daily management of literally hundreds of employees throughout my career, I am extremely excited to have this unbelievable tool at my disposal. To learn what drives people and how their needs can be fulfilled by matching them to a job where they can succeed puts us way ahead of the game.

Using Predictive Index is already paying dividends in terms of employee engagement, productivity, and reduced turnover. If you aren’t using this incredible tool, you are simply guessing or hoping an employee will be the right fit.

Becoming a PI Practitioner was time well spent! Matt was a great instructor… the material was wonderful and easy to follow in a very comfy classroom.

The warm, welcome smiles greeting you as you enter the lobby, especially the Director of First Impressions… fabulous.

Everyone at PG ensured you were having a great experience while there learning PI. The added treat was Gracie… sweet furr-girl.

What attracted me in the beginning to PI is still my favorite part of the tool, the quick survey takes less than 10 minutes and it’s accuracy has converted the most skeptical of executives once they receive the results.

It has paved the way for smoother job descriptions, recruiting profiling, team building, personal awareness, one on one coaching and it is my go to organizational development tool. This is a tool that must be added to each organization’s HR tool kit.

I honestly thoroughly enjoyed this course. As we went through each section it really did depict exactly who I am and the way I process things. Every time the instructor who state information regarding where I fell on the spectrum I found myself nodding and saying to myself, “Yup, that me all the way!”

I understand that one major use for this system is for interviewing and hiring new employees. I feel it will be a great asset to understand someone on a certain level even before meeting them.

The day of completing the course I found myself already using this system in the role that I have now. I was instructed to proceed with a policy in a certain way and I found myself reviewing the “Self-Concept” section of the material. I found that it again was right in that I do see myself as one way but quickly learn to adapt when it comes to my role at work.

I would like to encourage others to take a moment to learn this material because it really does show you a deeper part of yourself and the way you think.

MicroAge Teleservices was a third-party provider of telephone support consisting of over 2,000 employees. We began to expand rapidly and planned to open 3 call centers nationwide. We recognized that we would need help in selecting, managing and developing so many new people.

One tool we embraced across the company was the Predictive Index. After implementing PI, our turnover went from 85% to 28%. With our culture shifting from a disengaged culture to an engaged culture, our absence went from 3% a day to 1.5%. Additionally, we were able to improve operational efficiencies by reducing talk time on the phones from 3.8 minutes to 2.7 minutes without compromising call quality.

Being in the service department, and learning other personal assessment tools such as DiSC, I have taught myself to adapt my personality with others. Going through the Predictive Group Workshop and learning about Predictive Index has opened my eyes to a wider spectrum of personality assessment.

I have been using “hand tools” for the past 10 years, and now someone has just handed me and taught me how to use “POWER Tools!”

That is the only comparison I can think of. A better, stronger tool has now been added to my mental toolbox!

My next poker party, everyone will be required to fill out this assessment prior to sitting at the table!

As a hiring manager with over fifteen years of experience, I know the importance of hiring for job ‘fit’, but also know the danger of leaning too much into intuition in attempting to determine if a candidate is actually a good match for a role.

The BA provides the science and the vehicle to make hiring for ‘fit’ an attainable goal for every hiring manager in a manner that just couldn’t be done otherwise.

I recently participated in the 2-day workshop with Predictive Group. Predictive Group was great! They have, by far, the most friendly and welcoming employees. The second you walk through the door you are greeted with a warm welcome and an uplifting atmosphere.

Amanda Hayden taught my workshop and did a fantastic job. I walked away with some great knowledge, not only regarding their tools and resources, but working with people in general as well. Working with Predictive Group has been a great experience, and I would highly recommend getting involved with this company to better yourself as an individual, an employee, and a company.

The Becoming a PI Practitioner Workshop allows employers to understand how potential hires will fit into the roles and responsibility of the business. Creating Job Patterns for these roles will provide the right candidate for the right job.

Jeb does a wonderful job, in a short two days, of explaining how PI works and how the Predictive Group helps to implement it into your business. From the office setting to the people that work there, the Predictive Group is a great environment and provides a great service for any business.

The Predictive Index Practitioner Training is an amazing session to attend. An overwhelming amount of information is shared but the way it is presented – you leave feeling like you truly understand the process and the real results. I came out of the class confident and able to jump right into using the product in the work environment. The incredible and welcoming team makes you feel completely comfortable which provides an atmosphere to learn at the highest level. I highly recommend this course and the PI Cognitive Assessment and Behavioral Assessment.

The Predictive Group facilitated an amazing certification for the Predictive Index Behavioral Assessment. I loved how the entire staff made it a point to meet the participants of the workshop, and to make themselves available as a resource to each of us. The workshop itself was extremely well organized, engaging and impactful. I am leaving the workshop inspired to leverage PI in so many more ways than my organization has been using PI to date.

I’m convinced we will make better talent selection decisions, onboard our associates more effectively, and develop our talent to their full potential far more effectively by using PI.

The Predictive Index Becoming a PI Practitioner Workshop was an amazing eye-opening experience. I honestly did not know what to expect and came into it with an open mind.

With great instruction, I was surprised to learn that with these tools you can really connect with what drives people in their everyday lives. Being able to understand how I can communicate better with my team and identifying their specific needs/behaviors is a great life skill.

The Behavioral Assessment will add value to my role as a leader in my company, but also for my own personal reflection. Analyzing my own personal assessment made me realize how accurately my attributes and imperfections stood out.

Realizing what drives me has assisted in my current role knowing how I approach certain situations to be successful. I am looking forward to taking additional workshops for a deeper dive into Predictive Index.

I am super excited with what I have learned after attending Becoming a PI Practitioner, and am looking forward to applying the information in our business. The data is indispensable. I will be able to make sure we have the right people in the right seats, for total efficiency within the organization. Great workshop! Looking forward to learning more as time goes on! Thanks to the entire P.G. team!

What I learned/enjoyed from the 2 Day Becoming a PI Practitioner Workshop:

• Being able to use coworkers’ PIs to assess how we work together and how we could change our behaviors to be more effective with one another
• Learning what the Cognitive actually measures and how you can coach a low vs. high cognitive
• The graphs themselves and how the sigmas can affect a more/less predictable behavior and more/less of an expression
• That reading from left to right for the A:B comparisons can actually tell you a lot more than just reading someone’s PI (A,B,C,D)

In summary, I learned that the assessments can be used way beyond hiring. I was briefly exposed to and using the PI to see if candidates were a match based on the job they were applying. I did not know that it can be very beneficial in sharing the management strategy guide and relationship guide within existing teams, especially managers and above. Just the other day, I showed them both to two hiring managers, and they got very excited and found great value in developing their existing teams as well as seeing how they currently work together and what they can do differently.

I definitely plan on using the PI results to help the hiring managers make hiring decisions and choose between finalists i.e. explaining why one candidate would need a certain learning style, why one candidate may need more coaching; to hire the most coachable candidate that would work well with the team.

As Mobile Mini grows and is striving to add key hires, I think the PI would be extremely helpful in identifying gaps and risk within current departments. I would love to be able to meet with existing teams to go over how they all work together and what they may be lacking to be the most effective as possible.

I really enjoyed the 4 hour What Drives People course. It gave me a better understanding of what each of the factors are and how to read the Behavioral Assessment itself.

My company relies quite heavily on the PI system when recruiting new candidates and as a hiring manager, having this new found understanding has really helped me understand how selecting candidates that fit the job profile help us to build a better team.

Amanda Miller
Manager, Quality and Risk

My recent 1/2 Day What Drives People? Workshop experience was great! It helped me to realize the type of person I am and it was able to help me get to know my team mates and as a group we were able to discuss our findings and how we all can work together better as a team.

What makes it greater is we all can speak the same language in this aspect.

The PI Becoming a PI Practitioner Workshop exposed a new level of understanding and a methodical breakdown for me in regards to the Behavioral Assessment report. In two seemingly short days, it took me from barely comprehending the initial graphic report to a more critical understanding of the fundamentals, how they interrelate, and the information we can attain from a very dynamic document.

We currently utilize the assessment at all levels of our organization for hiring and I look forward to leveraging it not only for management & coaching opportunities, but also to increase the effectiveness of our communications over horizontal relationships at a leadership level.

We have been PI® users for over 20 years. Our turnover has been lowered by a great percentage and our bottom line is unquestionably better using PI 100% of the time.

We currently use PI as a coaching and recruitment tool. We want to develop a culture of coaching to the right behaviors for each job at Bryan and PI helps us get there. It is sometimes difficult for managers to easily detect where to spend their time coaching individual team members, and we have found the PI tool to be very effective in quickly identifying behavior gaps to focus coaching opportunities. Additionally, we have found PI to be very helpful in focusing our behavioral based questions during the interview process to drill down on areas where the candidate may struggle in the role to see if they can evidence otherwise.

We hope to continue using the tool in coaching team members and are looking at ways to incorporate PI into individualized coaching plans within key areas of the organization. We love that the tools are easy to administer, provide relevant feedback, and there are multiple ways of interpreting behaviors while focusing on strengths.

We were introduced to PI® about 12 years ago. Since then, PI has been an integral part of our business and, in no small way, a direct contributor to the growth of our company. Without a doubt, our investment in PI (and commitment to its ongoing use) has provided a greater return than any other dollars spent.

Not only were we able to see immediate results, we also continue to see sustainable long-term growth investing in our sales team.

It was extremely helpful to participate in the 2 Day workshop. I had taken the Behavioral Assessment prior to the workshop, along with my team, and we all found it highly accurate. We immediately saw the value in using the tool to support our clients, as we are an HR consulting company.

As helpful as PI is in the recruiting phase of HR, our use is not limited to that as recruiting is a very narrow sector of our business. The greatest potential we see is in the development and teamwork areas and we are just beginning to apply it in these areas.

Participating in the workshop was key in order to gain a better understanding of how the PI assessment results are produced. This information was necessary in order for us to get buy-in from key stakeholders on the process and time commitment to proceed with individual and team development activities following the assessment.

My oldest son took the PI when he was 18 and had just graduated from high school. I saved it.

Years later, he decided that he wanted to become a firefighter. In preparation for that interview, he asked me what I thought his top three strongest characteristics were. Of course, I had many more than three! Then I remembered the PI. So I sent it to him and explained a little bit about it. It was just what he needed to help him understand himself well enough to talk about himself in the interview. I asked him what he thought about it and he said “it was perfect!”

I still use my “PI skills” daily after all these years! I appreciate the opportunity to have learned about this amazing tool.

I suspected the Customer- Focused Selling Workshop would pay for itself quickly, and it did in less then two weeks. My most senior and successful sales guy followed the Customer-Focused Sales Process step by investigative step, and closed a deal with a customer that has only purchased from our competitor for the last ten years. And, he enjoyed the way the process peeled back the customer’s reservations and opened the door for the sale.

I have had previous experience with PI with another dealer group but they never offered the training course. In my opinion the workshop is invaluable. It provides additional information about the results that can eliminate some of the guesswork during the interview, hiring and coaching process.

I plan on implementing the “Job Model” feature as a way to identify “fits” and “gaps” with my existing employees and have already used the PI behavioral results during the interview process to tailor my questions to the individuals results. It is a truly amazing tool.

Willmeng has been using PI during the recruiting process for quite some time, so as a newer member of the team, it was important to make sure that I understood how to utilize PI to the fullest.

I attended the two day Predictive Index workshop with the Predictive Group and was impressed by the training I received. It was very in depth, and provided understandable content in an exciting manner. I learned that PI is not only useful for recruitment, but that there great tools and resources that we could be using for employee coaching and development as well!

I was energized by all of tools I was provided and the things I learned that I could immediately implement. I would definitely recommend this workshop for those looking to expand their knowledge on how to utilize PI to fullest and get the most out of the assessment.

Kirsten Pekar
Team Development Manager

I thought the facilitator was excellent. Dr. Mike Matwick provided clear explanations and allowed for questions and comments. The short knowledge tests were also very helpful in determining my understanding of the material presented.

I have a much better understanding of the Behavior and Cognitive assessments and how to interpret the PI Results and Reference Patterns. I plan to use this information during my daily activities as a Manager. I think it will help me to better understand my employees in regards of which type of work assignments will be best for each person and how to communicate more effectively with them. I think I will be able to review this information prior to coaching opportunities and to help with staff development as well.

I am excited to see the new Data Hire DART Scorecard, which I think will be tremendously helpful during our hiring sessions. It will also help me with building team relationships as we understand more about one another we will be able to be more effective as a team.

I have learned a lot about myself which will not only be helpful in my work life, but it will also be helpful in my home life as well. I have started to compare the differences between myself and my staff, so that I can flex my Management Style and communication style to be a better fit for them.

Thank you so much for allowing me this opportunity to learn more about the Predictive Index and how it can be used.
